After working together on The Mickey Mouse Club as children, Spears and Timberlake dated from 1999 to 2002. Spears alleged in her memoir that there was infidelity on both sides before revealing that she had an argument with the choreographer. Wade Robson While she was dating Timberlake.
Spears also revealed in her memoir that she had an abortion at Timberlake’s request before their split because he wasn’t ready to be a father.
“But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. “He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, and that we were too young,” she wrote. “I’m sure people are going to hate me for this, but I agreed not to have the baby. I don’t know if this is the right decision. If it had been left to me alone, I would never have done it. However, Justin was very sure that he did not want to become a father.
According to Spears, Timberlake tried to comfort her by playing his guitar while she “cried and cried” on the bathroom floor after terminating her pregnancy. After the difficult decision, Timberlake allegedly broke up with Spears in a text message.
Spears recalled being upset by Timberlake’s behavior in the wake of their split, specifically by the music video for her hit song “Cry Me a River,” which seemingly insinuated that she had been unfaithful.
“I don’t think Justin realized the power he had in exposing me,” she noted. “I don’t think he understands to this day,” she noted. “Was I angry that he would ‘out’ me as sexually active? “No. To be honest with you, I liked Justin saying that.”
Timberlake has yet to address Spears’ book, but he previously issued an apology to his ex for how he played a role in negative public perception of her following their split.
“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right,” he wrote in a statement shared on Instagram in February 2021.

Timberlake went on to say that he still has “respect” for Spears despite feeling he “let her down,” adding, “As a man in a position of privilege, I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn’t recognize it at all while it was happening in my life.” “But I never want to take advantage of other people’s downfall again. I can and will do better.”
A source has since said Us Weekly Timberlake did not expect to appear so prominently in Spears’ book, which sold more than a million copies in its first week. “Justin thought Britney might talk about her ups and downs in more general terms — not airing her dirty personal laundry,” an insider shared in October. “He is disappointed that she took this path decades after their separation.”
Another insider indicated that Timberlake felt remorse for his troubled past with Spears.
“Justin is sorry that he hurt Britney. He was young,” the insider added. “He believes Britney has every right to tell her story and hopes they can move on now.”
