Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake got together in the late-90s and dated for three years before breaking up in 2002. There was a rumor that they broke up because Justin though Brit Brit cheated on him with Wade Robson, and his song Cry Me A River is about an ex who did him wrong (and the video co-stars a Brit Brit look-alike). And Britney’s song Everytime is rumored to be her response to Cry Me A River and her apology to Justin for hurting him. They were the IT couple of the early-aughts and even fueled the denim industry for decades to come.
But that’s ancient history! Britney’s got a new man, Sam Asghari, and Justin is Jessica Biel’s problem now. And Brit Brit showed us again that her old relationship drama with Justin is nothing but tears under the bridge by moving to one of his songs on Instagram. And he answered back with a river of emojis.
Britney showed Justin some love for his song Filthy from that Man Of The Woods album that nobody (except for Britney, apparently) listened to. While dressed like Daisy Duke after getting a gift certificate to Charlotte Russe in the 90s, Britney twirled to the song. In her caption, she wrote that she and Justin had the “world’s biggest break up” two decades ago and thinks he’s a “genius.” If you’re anywhere near Justin’s luxurious Montana cabin, take cover, because his already giant ego is going to blow from that comment.

PS I know we had one of the world's biggest breakups 20 years ago …… but hey the man is a genius !!!! Great song JT ✨ !!!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT'S GOOD 😜 !!!!!!
Justin responded with emojis and thankfully he didn’t call her “sis.”
Britney’s piece Sam also wrote:
“Snapchat, Instagram TikTok, Facebook even Myspace was inspired by you.”
It was April 16, 2020, that I learned that only Britney’s man Sam thinks about MySpace.
Brit’s sister Jamie Lynn Spears also jumped into the comments to give Britney props and accuse the blogs of being shit-stirrers (GUILTY!):
“Blogs are already plotting their outrageous stories…. you keep having fun and looking cute tho!!“
I get that during these times of coronavirus, people get vulnerable and want to reach out to an ex, but don’t do it Britney! Work, bitch, on your communist takeover instead!
