When Justin Timberlake was a teenager, he was involved in a highly publicized relationship with a fellow pop star Britney Spears. The pair met on the set of The New Mickey Mouse Club in the early ’90s. They dated for a few years before splitting up in 2002.
Recently, Britney has been making headlines for out-of-the-ordinary behavior.
Oprah: What do you think is going on with Britney?
Justin: I don’t know, to be honest with you. I haven’t spoken to her in years. I mean, there’s no ill will. I have nothing but love for her. It’s funny because we dated each other at a time, wow, I haven’t talked about this in a long time. It’s interesting.
Oprah: But you’ve never talked about it to me, so it’s okay.
Justin: Hey, let’s get it in, girl.
Oprah: Let’s get it in.
Justin: We were teenagers, you know?
Oprah: Yes, famous teenagers.
Justin: I think that’s basically the best way to describe what happened to us. I think she’s a great person, and I don’t know her as well as I did. What I do know about her is she has a huge heart, and she is a great person.
