Justin Timberlake doesn’t want to apologize to anyone. According to information from NBC News, the singer, at a show in New York, told the audience that ‘I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely no one’.

The singer’s statement comes after Britney Spears made a public apology about some of the statements made in her biography The Woman in Me. In the work, she comments on details about her relationship with Justin Timberlake, which occurred in the late 1990s and in the early 2000s, full of controversies, such as the musician’s betrayals. The artist’s revelations about her ex’s behavior caused him a lot of criticism.

On Instagram, Britney shared a video of Justin with Jimmy Fallon and wrote: ‘I want to apologize for some of the things I wrote in my book. If I have offended someone I care about, I am deeply sorry. I also want to say that I love Justin Timberlake’s song Selfish’.

After the singer refused to accept the apology, Britney returned to comment on the situation, without directly mentioning her ex’s name. ‘Someone told me that there are people saying bad things about me out there. Do you want to take it to court or do you want to go home and cry to your mom like you did last time? I’m not sorry!’ she said, according to NBC News.

Understand the exchange of barbs between Justin and Britney

The release of Britney Spears’ autobiography, The Woman in Me, in 2023, reignited old controversies surrounding her romance with Justin Timberlake, which lasted from 1999 to 2002. In the book, Britney describes a different narrative than the one popularized by the media at the time, revealing that she felt unfairly portrayed after the relationship ended. While the press at that time painted Justin as the ‘cheated good guy’, Britney saw herself as the ‘cheating villain’.

In addition to discussing the dynamics of her relationship with Timberlake, Britney reveals deeper and more personal details, including betrayal by Justin and an abortion that the singer claims she was pressured into having due to a lack of support from her then-boyfriend. These revelations sparked outrage among fans, triggering a wave of support for the singer.

Although Justin attempted a conciliatory gesture in 2021, apologizing to Britney via Instagram following the release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears: The Life of a Star, the new revelations in Britney’s book could influence public perception of her past relationship and the celebrity culture more broadly.

Justin’s apology was seen as a step toward easing past tensions, but the memories detailed by Britney in her autobiography add new layers to the former couple’s story, raising questions about how celebrity narratives are shaped and eventually reevaluated.
