Britney Spears Addresses Justin Timberlake’s Apology in Post About Her Book

Britney Spears is writing a new memoir where she plans to bare it all and open up about betrayals and brutal memories.

“I’m writing a book at the moment, and as it’s actually healing and therapeutic. It’s also hard bringing up past events in my life I’ve never been able to express openly,” Spears, 40, wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post on Monday, April 4. “I can only imagine that I do sound childish, but I was extremely young when the events took place.”

She added, “But instead of using my heart, I’m using the intellectual approach as Justin did when he apologized to Janet and me. Although he was never bullied or threatened by his family, he took the opportunity to apologize 20 years later!!! Timing is EVERYTHING!!!”

The post appears to be about Justin Timberlake’s February 2021 statement regarding the backlash he received after the release of the New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears.

“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism,” Timberlake wrote at the time. “I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women, and I know I failed.”

Spears seemed to have accepted Timberlake’s apology as she was seen dancing to his music in her Instagram post. However, the star hasn’t forgiven her mother and sister, Lynne Spears and Jamie Lynn Spears. 

In her Instagram post on Monday, Britney wrote, referencing her 13-year conservatorship, “My mom and my sister also did the ‘intellectual approach’ in indulgence by writing their own books as I couldn’t even get a cup of coffee or drive my car or really anything.”

The Toxic singer recounted several instances, including not being allowed to leave the car during a trip to Target and not being able to join three childhood friends at the Spa in Las Vegas.
