Justin Timberlake vs Britney Spears

Britney Spears recently expressed her desire to apologize for certain things mentioned in her book, and she shared a video of Justin Timberlake singing. Fans speculated that the former couple, who had a tumultuous relationship, might be resolving their issues. However, Justin took a different turn, stating, "I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely f***ing nobody," possibly in response to Britney's apologies. This triggered a significant fan war, with the Gimme More singer reentering the scene with a comeback remark.

After first connecting with Justin on the Disney program The Mickey Mouse Club in 1999, Britney Spears started dating him when she was just 17. They were together till 2002.
