Justin Timberlake is performing during halftime at Super Bowl LII.  As is part of the gig he spoke with the media on Thursday.

Timberlake touched on his friendship/bromance with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.  He also let slip the fact that his son won’t be playing football.

The NFL probably isn’t going to love Timberlake letting that slip.  It isn’t the first time he’s ruffled the NFL’s feathers.  He is half of the infamous “Wardrobe Malfunction” halftime performance.  

Timberlake seemed to realize that it wasn’t a good look and walked his comments a bit.  The damage was already done, his kid will be raised as one of the soft ones who ends up writing about football and criticizing their every move.
