Amidst a whirlwind of discussions and media frenzy, the release of Britney Spears' candid memoir, "The Woman in Me," has brought her past relationship with Justin Timberlake back into the spotlight. The book unveils a series of revelations, including instances of infidelity and the startling detail that Timberlake ended their relationship through a text message.
This disclosure has stirred up a storm of reactions, leading Timberlake to disable the comments on his Instagram profile. Sources in Timberlake's inner circle have disclosed to Page Six that the decision to shut down the comments section on his social media was driven by the influx of "hateful and disgusting" messages.
The animosity and backlash from fans have been palpable, sparking a wave of online discourse. Yet, other insiders suggest that Timberlake is far from pleased about the release of Spears’ memoir, emphasizing that he has not, and does not intend to, reach out to Spears regarding the revelations made in her book.
"Justin is in a state of dismay over what has been brought to light in this book," a source revealed to the Daily Mail.
Anniversary Tinged by Memoir
Furthermore, the timing of the book's release has cast a shadow over Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel's, anniversary celebrations.
An additional source hinted that while the topic hasn't dominated their conversations, it certainly has been a subject of discussion between the couple. “The release of Britney’s memoir and the content it carries has brought an unexpected twist to Justin and Jessica’s special celebrations,” they shared.
Looking back, Spears and Timberlake’s romance was once the epitome of pop culture's power couples. Their journey began in the late '90s, blossoming from a shared history as child stars on The Mickey Mouse Club. However, their love story came to an abrupt end in 2002, with Spears later asserting that Timberlake chose to end their relationship through a text message during the filming of her “Overprotected” music video.
As the pages of Spears’ memoir unfold, the legacy of their relationship is revisited, casting a new light on their shared past and its impact on their present lives.
