The singer of ‘Toxic’ recently disclosed that she terminated a pregnancy during her relationship with former NSYNC member Justin Timberlake because he did not want to become a father at that time.
Justin Timberlake “is trying not to concern himself” with the upcoming memoir of his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears, titled “The Woman in Me.” The 42-year-old singer of “Mirrors” was in a relationship with the 41-year-old pop star from 1999 to 2002. Spears recently revealed that she had an abortion during their romance because Timberlake was not prepared to be a father. She stated, “If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
Despite the attention-grabbing revelation, Justin seems uninterested in Britney or the content of her new book. A source told ET, “Justin has been focusing on his own family and trying not to concern himself with Britney’s memoir. In recent years, Justin has tried to be supportive of Britney from a distance. They dated so long ago, but he still has respect for her. Justin and [wife Jessica Biel] just want everyone to grow and evolve instead of continuing to bring up the past.”
After Justin and Britney ended their relationship, the former NSYNC member moved on romantically with Jessica, whom he married in 2012. The couple has two children together, Silas, 8, and Phineas, 3.
Just days before Britney’s abortion revelation gained attention, a source informed Page Six that Justin was “curious” about what his ex was going to disclose in her memoir and was somewhat “concerned” about it. “He’s very curious what she’ll reveal from their relationship. It’s eating at him,” shared the insider.
In April, another source revealed the kind of details Britney intended to include in her highly anticipated book. “Britney’s book is a story of triumph,” one insider reportedly said. “It will cover her most vulnerable moments, her childhood – being a little girl with big dreams – her break-up with Justin Timberlake, the moment she shaved her head, and her battle with her family over her conservatorship.”
