After Britney Spears revealed that she had had an abortion while pregnant with Justin Timberlake’s child, then claimed to have forgiven her and even offered an apology, it was Justin Timberlake’s turn to add to the fray.
At a concert in New York, Justin Timberlake took the opportunity to apologize… to no one.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize… to absolutely f*cking nobody,” he quipped, generating a few reactions from his fans in the process.
Justin Timberlake told a New York City audience he'd "like to take this opportunity to apologize — to absolutely … nobody,” just days after Britney Spears said she was sorry about comments from her book. https://t.co/3OmPgYVA16

Britney Spears responded to her ex’s statement, withdrawing her own apology in the process.
The sequence of events comes as Timberlake offers new material and prepares for the Forget Tomorrow World Tour – his first world tour in five years – to promote his new album, Everything I Thought Was.
Timberlake’s latest song, Selfish, coincides with this renewed media attention. Sources claimed that Justin Timberlake was furious that Spears’ revelations were overshadowing his musical work.
That would explain Timberlake’s sudden reaction on stage…
Let’s remember that in 2021, Timberlake himself presented his regrets regarding Britney Spears in response to the documentary Framing Britney Spears, when the subject of the singer’s guardianship was on everyone’s lips.
Timberlake admitted that he had helped perpetuate false stories about her… and about Janet Jackson.
22 years after their breakup and the release of Cry Me A River, it’s still incredible to think that anyone is still talking about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s relationship!
