How did Justin Timberlake break up with Britney Spears 20 years ago? | Marca

No, it’s not the 2000s, but Britney Spears is once again being talked about, whether it’s because she finally owns her own life after a long legal battle against her father, or because she announced her third pregnancy. In addition, now her old relationship with Justin Timberlake is also back in the news.

Between 1999 and 2002, JT and Britney were consolidated as the most mediatic couple in entertainment and if separately they were idolized by millions, together they were a media bomb.

How did Justin Timberlake end up with Britney Spears?

However, that relationship that seemed almost perfect came to an end unexpectedly and now, 20 years later, who has brought it back to light is the director Chris Applebaum, famous for having made music videos for famous stars like Rihanna (and her iconic music video for Umbrella), Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato or CĂ©line Dion, in addition to Spears.

Now, Applebaum decided to make a confession on social media of how he witnessed Timberlake end his relationship with Britney, via text message.

“Here’s a picture of me with @britneyspears before I grew the beard. This was taken on the 2nd shoot day for her “Overprotected (Darkchild Remix) video,” Applebaum wrote on Instagram.

“It was a (planned) 24 hr shoot day and we had one crew clock out after 12 hrs & a new one clock in. At some point during the 2nd shift Brit disappeared and I went to her trailer to fetch her…only to discover her BF Justin had just broken up with her via text message.

“We sat on the floor of her trailer for a minute, talked it out, and then rallied. I told her she should get out there & show Justin he made the biggest mistake of his life,” the director added.
