Janet Jackson has long struggled with ‘trust issues’

London: Janet Jackson has revealed that she has very few friends, because she has long struggled with "trust issues".

Jackson said that the whirlwind of show business has forced her to remain guarded over the years, leaving only a handful of close pals.

"I don’t have a lot of friends. It’s not easy in this industry. And I’m glad I don’t have a lot of friends... It’s very much a trust issue... It’s definitely a trust issue for myself," The Daily Star quoted her as telling Larry King.

"There`s nothing worse than being lonely and having people around you, especially people that you love, people that you need to be involved with."
