Ah, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears – the pop couple of the ’90s. If you thought about them at all, you probably thought they’d be together forever – but alas, we were all wrong. After Britney cheated on Justin in 2002, they called it quits, he released ‘Cry Me a River’ and she went nuts. Obviously both have moved on and have been married since, with varying degrees of success, but it’s clear there’s still some bad blood between them.
While performing at a Super Bowl charity gig in New Orleans on Saturday night, Justin prefaced a rendition of ‘Cry Me a River’ with a rather inflammatory statement about ole Brit Brit:
“Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out that she is just some bitch!” (via DigitalSpy)
Ohhhh, snap! I mean, she probably is a bitch and all (especially if her recent stint on The X Factor USA is anything to go by), but damn. Of course, Justin denies that his comment was anything personal towards the pop princess and took to his Twitter page to set the record straight:
Yeah, okay, Justin – we believe you. Not.
