In a somewhat unexpected turn, Spears used the post as an opportunity to apologize for any offense caused by her memoir, “The Woman in Me,” which she released earlier. In her post, she wrote, “I wanna apologize for some of the things I wrote about in my book. If I offended any of the people I genuinely care about I am deeply sorry…” The apology added a reflective and reconciliatory tone to her message.

She Even Laughs at His Jokes

Interestingly, Spears injected a touch of humor into her post by sharing her amusement at the comedic chemistry between Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, stating, “how come every time I see Justin and Jimmy together I laugh so hard???” This light-hearted comment provided a glimpse into the pop star’s sense of humor and her ability to appreciate the camaraderie between Timberlake and Fallon.

The post highlighted a video featuring Justin Timberlake’s appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. In the video, Timberlake, 42, joined Fallon and The Roots for a playful medley of his popular songs, including “Selfish,” accompanied by the use of classroom instruments.

Why Is Britney Spears Apologizing?

In her autobiography, Britney Spears revealed details about her past relationship with Justin Timberlake, disclosing that she had an abortion after becoming pregnant with his child. Spears described the situation as a surprise but not a tragedy, expressing her deep love for Timberlake and an expectation of having a family together in the future. However, Timberlake was reportedly unhappy about the pregnancy, believing they were too young and unprepared for parenthood. Despite Spears’ reluctance, she underwent the abortion, describing it as one of the most agonizing experiences in her life.

The singer had mentioned: “It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated. But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young. 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.”

She also added: “To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”
