The so-called malfunction saw Jackson's chest exposed for less than a second after Justin Timberlake ripped some cloth off his bustier during the performance.

CBS and MTV (which was then owned by Viacom, the parent company of CBS at the time) faced major criticism and a fine of $ 550,000 from the Federal Communications Commission.

The singers insisted that the incident was an accident, and Timberlake said he only wanted to tear a small amount of cloth to expose some red lace.

Moonves banned the pair from the Grammy telecast in 2004, which came a week after the Superbowl, but let Timberlake show up after he apologized tearfully, according to Ali sources.

He said he was furious that Jackson did not do something similar.

As previously reported, Jackson's music was blacklisted by MTV after the incident.

Moonves (pictured on July 11) announced his resignation on Sunday shortly after the most recent article in the New Yorker, which followed a first publication on July 27.

The magazine reported that the latest accusations include Moonves forcing women to perform oral sex and retaliate when advances were rejected.

Moonves acknowledged relations with three of the women, but said they were consensual, adding that he had never used his position to harm women's careers.

The network did not address the allegations directly, but said that Moonves will donate $ 20 million to one or more organizations that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace.

"The donation, which will be made immediately, has been deducted from the compensation benefits that may be owed to Moonves," the statement said.

Moonves called the accusations "false."

CBS declined to comment on the HuffPost story. Dailymail.com has contacted a spokesperson for comments.
