Before being married to “Seven at Home” actress Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake had a high-profile romance with “Baby One More Time” performer Britney Spears. In 1999, aged 18 and 17, the two singers formalized their relationship: the icon of the boy band NSYNC and the pop star then became, in the early 2000s, THE cult couple. And the favorite target of the tabloids!
We all remember this outfit, where they were both matched in total jeans look, at the American Music Awards ceremony, in Los Angeles, January 8, 2001. Only here, in 2002, and only 2 years after their formalization, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears did not complete each other at all … The cause? The singer would have cheated on him with her choreographer. Ouch.
Justin Timberlake cheated: how did he overcome Britney Spears betrayal?
Nothing better than a little tackle in song, as a therapy, to overcome a breakup … Isn’t it Justin Timberlake? This is how the singer settled his accounts – solo this time – with a world famous title, Cry me a river: “You told me you love me / Why did you leave me all alone / Now you tell me you need me / When you call me on the phone / Girl, I refuse / You must have me confused with some other guy “(translation:” You told me that you loved me / Why did you leave me alone / Now you tell me that you need me / When you call me / I refuse / You must confuse me with another guy “). For his part, Brit-Brit had begged him to forgive her, in the cult title Everytime: “I may have made it rain / Please forgive me / My weakness caused you pain / And this song’s my sorry” (translation: “J ruined everything / Please forgive me / My weakness caused your pain / And this song is my forgiveness “). What Justin Timberlake didn’t do.
