In an unmistakable move to silence the cacophony of critics, Justin Timberlake has decisively disabled the comments on his Instagram profile. This action comes hot on the heels of the release of Britney Spears' revealing memoir, "The Woman in Me," which has stoked the controversy surrounding their past relationship.
The former *NSYNC star finds himself at the epicentre of a social media storm as he faces a relentless onslaught of criticism stemming from the jaw-dropping revelations in Spears' tell-all book. Timberlake, 42, is said to have taken this bold step in response to the "hateful and repulsive comments" inundating his social media pages, according to insiders close to the artist, who spoke exclusively with Page Six.
The Grammy-winning singer is taking a stance, shielding himself from the abuse and maintaining his composure amidst the swirling drama.
Spears Bares All: Love and Betrayal
Spears, now 41, has left no stone unturned in her memoir, delving deep into the intricacies of their three-year liaison.
She lays bare her soul, sharing her experience of undergoing an abortion during their time together and expressing her unbridled love for Timberlake. Despite her profound feelings, Spears sheds light on Timberlake's hesitation to start a family back then.
In a bombshell revelation, Spears alleges infidelity on Timberlake’s part, accusing him of being unfaithful with a "well-known" woman, whose identity she kept under wraps, respecting the individual's current marital and parental status.
Moreover, Spears brings to light Timberlake’s controversial interactions with black artists, accusing him of adopting a "blaccent" to assimilate and noting that he, along with his *NSYNC counterparts, "tried too hard to fit in." While Timberlake has opted to stay mum on the matter, keeping his thoughts and feelings away from the public eye, those in his inner circle suggest that he is anything but indifferent to Spears' explosive narrative as the drama continues to unfold on the digital stage.
