While Hollywood is, undoubtedly, famous for its epic love stories, the tales of bad blood between exes is what mostly takes the spotlight. But looks like in the case of pop singer Britney Spears and singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake, who had a rather publicized break up 20 years ago, the expected animosity doesn’t exist, at least not anymore considering that Spears recently put up a video of dancing to Timberlake’s 2018 song ‘Filthy’ calling it “great” and her ex a “genius.”
“This is my version of Snapchat or TikTok or whatever the cool thing you’re supposed to do these days!!!!! As you can see I’m not really dancing folks….. I’m just very bored,” Britney Spears wrote as the caption of the video of herself dancing to Timberlake’s “Filthy.”
And what further proves that all the drama after their break-up is now water under the bridge is the singer’s comment on the dramatic course of their split up in 2002. “PS I know we had one of the world’s biggest breakups 20 years ago….. but hey the man is a genius!!!! Great song JT!!!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT’S GOOD!!!!!!” she wrote.
And before Britney Spears posted another follow-up video of herself, where she does 14 turns while listening to ‘Filthy’, Justin Timberlake had already commented on her prior video with a slew of laughing emojis followed by some raised hand signs.
Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears had dated back in 1999 till 2002 when they called it quits
Following their much-publicized breakup as one of Hollywood’s then power couples, Justin Timberlake releasing the song, “Cry Me a River,” with a blond look-alike of Britney Spears and inundating that she cheated on him only made matters worse.
“I’ve been scorned. I’ve been pissed off,” he wrote in his autobiography Hindsight: And All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me. “I wrote ‘Cry Me a River’ in two hours. I didn’t plan on writing it. The feelings I had were so strong that I had to write it, and I translated my feelings into a form where people could listen and, hopefully, relate to it.”
But since then, the duo has moved on- Britney Spears married and divorced Kevin Federline, after having two children with him and is now dating model Sam Asghari while Justin Timberlake went on to marry actress Jessica Biel and has a son with her.
