The simmering conflict between Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears is heating up again. But while Timberlake initially played the victim in this conflict, the now arrogant singer has brought trouble upon himself entirely.
Britney was ready to bury the hatchet, but then Justin decided to take a jab at his former lover at the wrong time. Britney Spears’ cutting response was not long in coming. And now it seems that Justin will have to reconcile with serious reputational losses after all!
Justin Timberlake’s dig and Britney Spears’ response.
The beginning of the conflict
The conflict between Timberlake and Spears began with the publication of Britney’s memoirs. In them, the singer revealed what actually pushed her into the depths of addiction, and one of the reasons for her troubles was a decision to abort, allegedly influenced by Justin. This information severely impacted the musician’s career!
Previously, in the breakup between Timberlake and Spears, it was Justin who was considered the victim. Now, however, the public has been able to view the events of the past in a new light. A full-scale war has broken out between Britney and Justin’s fans. But the singer found the strength to take the first step towards reconciliation. The beauty publicly apologized to Justin for all the problems caused by the publication of her memoirs.
«Would like to apologize for some things I wrote in my book,» said Spears. Moreover, the singer even praised her ex-lover’s new songs! Here, it seemed like the conflict was over. But Timberlake, it seems, fancied himself invincible and began to provoke Britney.
At his recent concert in New York, a flushed Justin announced from the stage, «Taking the opportunity, I would like to apologize… Just kidding, I won’t apologize to anyone!» And then he performed his old hit «Cry Me A River» in front of the fans, which was once a symbol of Justin and Britney’s breakup.
A fitting response
Spears’ response to her ex’s bold move didn’t take long. A couple of days after Justin’s statement, the singer posted a video of her sassy dance in a red dress, accompanied by the following caption: «Heard someone’s trash-talking me on the streets. Sweetie, shall we go to court, or are you gonna run crying to mommy like last time?»
Timberlake has yet to respond to Spears’ comment. However, his recent stunt has already backfired on him. Outraged fans collectively tanked the ratings of Timberlake’s new song, while pushing Spears’ song from 13 years ago to the top of the charts. It’s a serious blow to both the singer’s reputation and his wallet!
