Britney Spears is coming clean about a significant moment of unfaithfulness during her relationship with Justin Timberlake.
No, it’s not a typical story where husband catches wife cheating. In her forthcoming memoir, "The Woman in Me," set to hit bookshelves on October 24, Spears, aged 41, candidly shares an episode of transgression with dancer and choreographer Wade Robson, according to an exclusive source at Us Weekly.
In this revealing account, Spears recollects a night of dancing and intimate moments with Robson, aged 41, at a Spanish bar while she was still dating Timberlake, who was 42 at the time. The "Toxic" singer goes on to explain that she and Timberlake decided to move past this infidelity, given her unwavering loyalty and affection for him over the years.
The rumors surrounding Spears' infidelity with Timberlake have circulated since the release of the music video for Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" in 2003, a year after the couple parted ways. The music video featured a Spears lookalike, implying her unfaithfulness. Spears later commented on this in a 2003 Rolling Stone interview, noting that Timberlake had informed her about the controversial video.
In her memoir, Spears not only acknowledges her own betrayal but alsoclaims that Timberlake cheated on herwith another well-known woman. Notably, she refrains from disclosing the individual's name, as she now has a family of her own.
Britney's revelations in her memoir extend beyond infidelity. She disclosed that she became pregnant during her relationship with the "SexyBack" singer in the early 2000s. In an excerpt from the memoir, Spears stated that Justin was not thrilled about the pregnancy and believed they were not prepared for parenthood. She recounts her decision to have an abortion, emphasizing that she made this choice because Timberlake was adamant about not becoming a father.
Prior to the memoir's release, insiders have shared varying perspectives on its potential impact. Some hinted that Justin Timberlake might not be pleased with its contents, insinuating that Spears might address him firmly. Yet another source clarified that Spears merely aims to present her side of the story.
Spears and Timberlake were in a relationship from 1999 to 2002. They first crossed paths in the early '90s while working together on "The Mickey Mouse Club." Timberlake later married Jessica Biel in 2012, and they share two sons, Silas and Phineas.
In contrast, Britney Spears is a mother to two sons, Sean and Jayden, from her previous marriage to Kevin Federline. Her recent separation from Sam Asghari culminated in divorce proceedings initiated by Asghari in August, just 14 months after their marriage.
