Justin Timberlake, who celebrates his 41st birthday this Monday, January 31, had a highly publicized relationship with Britney Spears in the early 2000s. The pop star recalled on social networks an important moment in his career, during which her ex-boyfriend had been very supportive of her.
Fervent defenders of their idol, Britney Spears fans have never hidden their anger at Justin Timberlake. In 2002, after more than two years of relationship, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears made the decision to put an end to their story. At the time, the two stars form the most adored couple of their generation, and inspire millions of fans around the world. If he hadn’t spoken publicly about this high-profile breakup, Justin Timberlake had done worse, releasing the song Cry Me A River, clearly intended for Britney Spears, accused of infidelity. “I had been despised. I was pissed off. The feelings I felt were so strong that I had to write them down. I translated my feelings into a form that people could listen to and hopefully find themselves in“, had explained Justin Timberlake about his tube, in his autobiography Hindsight & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Mereleased in 2018.
However, in the documentary Framing Britney Spears available on Amazon Prime since last year, the role played by Justin Timberlake in the descent into hell of Britney Spears is singled out. Accused of having surfed on a wave of misogyny to the detriment of the reputation of his ex-girlfriend, the husband of Jessica Biel had apologized publicly, two decades later. “I am deeply sorry for those times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I monopolized the floor, where I did not speak up to stand up for what was right. I now understand that I failed to live up to these times and many more, and benefited from a system that allowed misogyny and racism“, had written Justin Timberlake in a mea culpa published on Instagram.
An anecdote shared by Britney
Britney Spears, who was recently released from a 13-year-old conservatorship, did not publicly respond to her ex-boyfriend’s apology. However, a few months later, the singer recalled a moment shared with Justin Timberlake, when she was invaded by stress before going on stage, for her legendary performance of I’m a Slave 4 U at the MTV Video Music Awards, in 2001.”Before performing on stage that evening, I had enormous stage fright that paralyzed me… At the same time… I was going into a cage with a real tiger! I’ll never forget the moment before stepping into that cage! Justin saw that I could barely speak so he held my hand and talked to me for five minutes to encourage me, which obviously worked out well.“, had written the singer.
An anecdote that she had never revealed before and which had made her fans react a lot, most of whom do not carry Justin Timberlake in their hearts. Last June, when Britney broke the silence and publicly explained to a judge the ordeal she had been living for thirteen years because of her father, Justin Timberlake reacted, supporting the one he loved for a long time. “No woman should be prevented from making decisions for her own body. No one should be held against their own will, nor having to ask permission to enjoy all that he worked so hard for. Jess and I send all our love and our absolute support for Britney. We hope the courts as well as her family will do what is right and let her live her life as she chooses.“, he wrote on Twitter. What to suggest that the resentment is no longer relevant between the two stars…
