Britney Spears Revealed She Had an Abortion While Dating Timberlake, and the Reason Is Truly Heart-Wrenching
Prior to the launch of Britney’s highly anticipated memoir, The Woman in Me, there were reports suggesting that Justin Timberlake had reservations about certain revelations in the book. The reasons for his concerns have now come to light. In her memoir, Spears discloses a deeply personal and painful experience, revealing that she became pregnant during her relationship with NSYNC star, ultimately leading to a distressing abortion. Read on to uncover these previously undisclosed details.
Britney and Justin were lovers destined by fate.
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were the quintessential celebrity couple of the early 2000s. These pop icons were romantically involved from 1999 to 2002, creating one of the most intensely scrutinized relationships of their time. They first crossed paths during their childhood in 1992 while working together on the set of The Mickey Mouse Club, alongside other notable members such as Ryan Gosling and Christina Aguilera.
In the late 1990s, Britney and Justin found themselves back in each other’s lives as burgeoning pop sensations. Naturally, their rekindled connection blossomed into a romance. The media kept a vigilant eye on their every move, and fans yearned for a love story like theirs. However, their love story was relatively short-lived, and the couple parted ways after three years of dating. Interestingly, most of the private details about their relationship only surfaced long after their breakup.
Their relationship is still a hot topic.
Even nearly two decades later, Britney and Justin continued to address their past romance in public. In 2020, Spears referred to their breakup as “one of the world’s biggest breakups.” Then, in 2021, Timberlake publicly apologized to Spears for his conduct during their breakup. He acknowledged speaking “out of turn” and playing a part in perpetuating a culture of misogyny. Justin also extended his strong support to Britney during her conservatorship trial that same year.
Now, we are gaining an even more intimate perspective on their relationship, thanks to Spears’ eagerly anticipated memoir, The Woman in Me. The book offers numerous revelations into the tumultuous life of the pop star, including the shocking disclosure that Britney became pregnant while she was with Justin.
Spears just dropped a bombshell about their past.
Spears’ memoir delves into various significant aspects of her life, but this particular revelation took everyone by surprise. In her memoir, she wrote that the pregnancy was an unexpected turn of events. However, she wasn’t disheartened, stating, “I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day.” Timberlake, on the other hand, was daunted by the prospect of such a commitment. According to Britney, “He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”
Britney revealed that if the decision had been solely hers, she would have chosen to have the baby, but Justin wasn’t ready to become a father. Consequently, they made the difficult choice to undergo an abortion. Regrettably, this experience left a lasting emotional impact on the singer, with her expressing, “To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”
Reports suggested that Justin had a bad feeling about her book.
Interestingly, a few days before the release of the Spears’ book, many sources claimed that Timberlake was feeling uneasy about it. Reports said that he was “concerned” about what she was planning to reveal about their relationship. From what we can gather she didn’t consult with him about the contents of her book, which was “eating at him”.
The insider connected to Spears’ publishers, however, said that the book is her source of empowerment and a way to finally share her unique story. It was highlighted that Britney’s plan was never to “takedown” anyone personally, especially not Justin Timberlake.
Britney Spears’ fans have expressed overwhelming support for her.
Devoted fans of the singer expressed their unwavering support for her, indicating that this period in their idol’s life was profoundly traumatic. Many of them couldn’t help but recall Britney’s hit song “Everytime,” which happened to be the first song the pop star wrote herself. Some fans even suggested that the line “I guess I need you, baby,” along with the entire set of lyrics, was dedicated to the baby rather than the guy.
Furthermore, some fans remembered that during live performances of “Everytime,” the singer often tenderly touched her belly.
In the weeks leading up to the book’s release, Britney found herself in the center of media attention once again. Regrettably, this time it was due to her divorce from Sam Asghari.
