In her upcoming book, "Woman in Me," Britney Spears says many shocking things, such as that Justin Timberlake cheated on her, which sheds new light on their troubled relationship. Britney's autobiography is set to come out this week, but her claim of cheating on ex-NSYNC member adds another layer to their relationship.
Britney doesn't name the person with whom Justin is said to have had an affair in the book because she doesn't want to make that person look bad because of their current family situation. So, fans are left to guess and try to make sense of what's going on. An old-fashioned drama, where wife catches husband cheating!
Justin famously released the hit song "Cry Me a River" in 2002, and he said that it was inspired by an argument he had with Spears. This made people think she had been cheating on her husband.
Britney did not directly deny these allegations, and in 2003, she released "Everytime," a song her songwriting partner claimed was a direct response to "Cry Me a River." The lyrics of "Everytime" include lines such as, "I may have made it rain. Please, forgive me. My weakness caused you pain. And this song's my sorry."
In light of our previous report regarding the abortion revelation, some fans have speculated that "Everytime" might actually be addressing the pregnancy and abortion, particularly because the music video concludes with a woman giving birth.
Britney and Justin's relationship traces back to their early days on "The Mickey Mouse Club" in 1992. They dated from 1999 to 2002.
It remains unclear who may have cheated first, but Britney is sharing her side of the story and more in her memoir, slated for release on October 24.
