It’s been years since the pair were romantically linked, but Britney SpearsAnd Justin TimberlakeTogether, they are still making headlines. This time, fans are slamming Timberlake for his reaction to the paparazzi talking about Spears’ pregnancy.
Timberlake’s Reaction To Spears’ Pregnancy News
Spears recently announced that she is expecting a child with her fiancé Sam Asghari. The announcement comes months after the pop star announced that she was forced into an IUD due to her conservatorship.
While many are overjoyed to hear Spears’ news, Timberlake did not seem to be one of them. He was asked by a paparazzo what he thought of the announcement as he walked into a structure. “Britney Spears just announced that she’s pregnant with her third baby…”
Timberlake spoke before he could speak any other words. “Stop! Go away!”He then laughed and stomped his toes, making fun of his friend. “[He] got me stomping my feet.” A video of the interaction has since gone viral, with many of Spears’ fans criticizing Timberlake for his reaction.
The Video Attracted a lot of fan reactions
“Not Justin Timberlake throwing a tantrum because Britney is pregnant,”One person has tweeted. Another writer, “Ok so Justin Timberlake wouldn’t stop throwing Britney’s name around during interviews for a whole decade just to trash her but now he is bothered when someone asks him about her? Make it make sense.”
Timberlake’s fans were quick to come to his defense. “If he said something you would say he wanted to promote himself,”One person said. “he doesn’t respond to any paparazzi, and he doesn’t need to have an opinion about anything in Britney’s life, just be happy for her and leave Justin Timberlake alone!!!”
Others have pointed out that Timberlake snaps at the paparazzi regardless of what they ask him about. The singer’s reaction seems more likely to be about the paps themselves, and not his ex-girlfriend’s news.
Spears And Timberlake’s Dating History
Timberlake and Spears met while Timberlake was starring in The All-New Mickey Mouse Club together. They started dating in 1999, and they even moved in together in 2001. Timberlake blamed Spears for the breakup one year later.
Timberlake made several comments suggesting that Spears had cheated and also revealed intimate details about their physical relationship. It’s been years since their relationship fell apart, but Timberlake’s slut-shaming of Spears has become a recent topic of conversation after the famous “Free Britney”Movement and the New York Times: Framing Britney Sppears documentary.
Timberlake has been dealing with a lot negative press. His comments from the time have resurfaced, and he has even apologized to Spears. It seems unlikely that he would have such a negative public reaction to news of her pregnancy, so it’s fair to assume this was just him lashing out at the paparazzi.
