The Untold Truth Of Britney Spears And Justin Timberlake's Relationship

Britney Spears may be in a relationship with model Sam Asghari these days while Justin Timberlake is married to actress Jessica Biel, however, fans still fondly remember a time when Spears and Timberlake made up one of the most adorable couples in the world of pop music.

Originally meeting as kids while both performing with the All New-Mickey Mouse Club, the two reconnected years later and began dating in 1998. The industry power couple sparked countless headlines, hit up the hottest events in show business, and made memorable appearances on their fair share of red carpets. Honestly, who could forget their matching denim moment at the 2001 American Music Awards?

However, the pair split in 2002 after Spears allegedly cheated on Timberlake with choreographer Wade Robson. While the break-up surely stung at the time — and resulted in the former NSYNC singer releasing a revenge tune of sorts with "Cry Me a River" — the duo seems to be on friendly terms two decades later.

Britney Spears called her split from Justin Timberlake 'one of the world's biggest breakups'

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's relationship may have gone down in flames years ago, however, the "Baby One More Time" singer made it clear on April 15, 2020, that she still admires her ex when she took to Instagram to share a video of herself moving and grooving to one of Timberlake's tunes.

"This is my version of Snapchat or TikTok or whatever the cool thing you're supposed to do these days," Spears wrote along with her post that featured JT's song "Filthy." She continued, "As you can see I'm not really dancing folks ...... I'm just very bored." Considering the star shared her video while in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic, it was not only understandable that she was having a little fun while trying to pass the time, but fans were thrilled by the glimpse at what the star's been up to and loved how she ended her message.

"PS I know we had one of the world's biggest breakups 20 years ago," she wrote, referring to her split from Timberlake. "[B]ut hey the man is a genius !!!! Great song JT !!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT'S GOOD."

Timberlake apparently appreciated the post and commented with a laughing face emoji and hands praising his ex-girlfriend. Fans also adored what they were seeing, with one even asking, "Can we have @justintimberlake now dancing one of @britneyspears songs?!" Yes, please!
