Justin Timberlake may indeed be heading back to the Super Bowl.

According to Us Weekly, Timberlake is said to be finalizing a deal to headline next year's halftime show, which would come 14 years after his controversial appearance at the 2004 Super Bowl, when he ripped off part of Janet Jackson's costume briefly exposing her right breast and nipple.

That incident brought about the term "wardrobe malfunction" and forced a five-second delay on live broadcasts.

This latest report of a Timberlake deal follows a series of previous reports suggesting Timberlake might perform alongside Jay-Z. But it now appears Jay won't be taking the stage.

Next year's Super Bowl LII is set for Feb. 18 at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. This year's halftime show, headlined by Lady Gaga, was the most-watched ever.

The NFL usually doesn't formally announce its Super Bowl performers until later in the fall. A rep for Timberlake wasn't immediately available for comment.
