“There were times when Mike used to tease me and call me names. Pig, horse, slut, or hog, cow,” Janet said in the doc, as revealed by the New York Post.

She added, “He would laugh about it, and I’d laugh too, but then there was some­where down inside that it would hurt. When you have somebody say you’re too heavy, it affects you.”

Janet said her weight issues began while playing Penny on the show Good Times.

“I did Good Times and that’s the beginning of having weight issues and the way I looked at myself,” she said. “I’m an emotional eater, so when I get stressed or something is really bothering me, it comforts me.”

Janet recently did something sweet for a fellow singer!
