Embattled CBS chairman Les Moonves has found himself at the center of controversy yet again.

According to HuffPo, Moonves was convinced the malfunction was not an accident as Jackson and Timberlake maintained, but an intentional effort to spark controversy.

CBS declined to comment on HuffPost's report.

In his current position, Moonves oversees all operations of CBS Corp., including the CBS Television Network, the CW network, CBS Television Studios, CBS Global Distribution Group, CBS Films, CBS Interactive, Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network, Simon & Schuster, CBS Television Stations, CBS Radio and CBS EcoMedia. Timberlake, the man who ripped Jackson's shirt to begin with.

According to the Huffington Post, "multiple sources" have told stories about Moonves, who is now facing a series of sexual-misconduct accusations, tried his best to ruin Jackson, believing that she wasn't apologetic enough. Timberlake was eventually allowed to perform but only after a heartfelt apology (the Huffington Post described said apology as "tearful") to Moonves.
