Justin Timberlake, the pop sensation and former *NSYNC member, has chosen to disable the comments on his Instagram profile in response to the mounting backlash following Britney Spears’ explosive revelations in her latest memoir, “The Woman in Me.” This decision was reportedly motivated by the barrage of “hateful and disgusting comments” that inundated his social media page, according to an exclusive source that spoke to Page Six.
Both Spears and Timberlake’s representatives have yet to comment on the matter. The once high-profile couple, known for hits like “Toxic” and “Sexyback,” had a romantic relationship from 1999 to 2002.In her memoir, Spears made some stunning claims against Timberlake, asserting that she became pregnant by him in the early 2000s. However, the two allegedly decided to terminate the pregnancy as Timberlake was not ready to become a father. Furthermore, she criticized him for adopting a blaccent when interacting with R&B artist Ginuwine. This particular detail gained widespread attention thanks to actress Michelle Williams, who recreated Timberlake’s behavior in the audiobook version of Spears’ memoir.On page 57 of her book, Spears writes, “His band, *NSYNC, was what people back then called ‘so pimp.’ They were white boys, but they loved hip-hop. To me, that’s what separated them from the Backstreet Boys, who seemed very consciously to position themselves as a white group. *NSYNC hung out with black artists. Sometimes I thought they tried too hard to fit in.”In addition to these revelations, it is alleged that Timberlake was unfaithful to Spears with “another celebrity” during their relationship, and Spears herself confessed to an affair with dancer and choreographer Wade Robson. Despite the mounting claims, Timberlake has not issued any public responses or statements. Nonetheless, sources cited by the Daily Mail have claimed that he is deeply unhappy about the accusations, although he has not initiated any communication with Spears on the matter.On the flip side, Spears celebrated the release of her memoir as “historic.” In a now-deleted nude Instagram post, she expressed her joy over the book’s soaring success. It has already claimed the top spot on Amazon’s Best Sellers list as well as Barnes and Noble’s Best Sellers list. In her caption, Spears thanked her supportive fans and emphasized her appreciation for their encouragement and enthusiasm.As the saga between Spears and Timberlake unfolds, their fans and the public remain captivated by the revelations in her book, while Timberlake appears to be taking a step back from the spotlight on social media in light of the mounting backlash.
