Britney And Justin’s Relationship

In 1999, the two were at the height of their music careers. Britney had become a sensation thanks to the hit “Baby One More Time.”
As for Justin, he found stardom as a member of the boy band NSYNC.
They began dating in 1999, and the relationship created a buzz with the tabloids and teenage fans.
With Britney and Justin being pop stars, cameras followed them everywhere. The two were seen holding hands on the red carpet, and packing on PDA during a romantic dinner.
After two years together, the couple broke up in 2002, leading to speculation on what went wrong.
Justin Alleges Britney Cheated
Months after his split with Britney, Justin embarked on his solo music career and released the single “Cry Me a River.”
The video for the song created a stir and seemed to shed light on Justin and Britney’s relationship.
A blonde woman supposedly playing Spears is cheating on Timberlake, and he get revenge by getting intimate with another woman.
The video led to speculation that Britney cheated on Justin in real-life, and the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer received backlash for breaking Justin’s heart.
Neither side never confirmed nor denied the cheating rumors, but it was obvious they were both upset by the split.
Britney Fans Angry With Justin
As showcased on “Framing Britney Spears,” Britney received a lot of negative attention following the release of “Cry Me a River.”
During that time, the public and the media sided with Justin, whom they assumed was the victim in the break up.
Britney fans immediately took to social media to voice their anger towards Timberlake.
A majority of fans felt Timberlake should apologize to Britney, while another fan said they wanted to beat up Timberlake.
Although, fans are angry with Timberlake’s treatment towards Britney, she’s shown she has no resentment towards her ex.
Conservatorship Battle Continues
The main focus of “Framing Britney Spears” was Britney’s ongoing legal battle over her conservatorship.
Following her 2007 breakdown, Britney’s father Jamie Spears was granted a conservatorship.
In recent years, reports have surfaced about Jamie’s treatment of Britney.
Many fans believe that Jamie wants the conservatorship to continue so he can have Britney’s money. Fans have theorized that Jamie and his team don’t have Britney’s interest at heart, and are holding her against her will.
Their theories have led to the #FreeBritney movement, which many famous celebrities such as Miley Cyrus have joined.
Britney’s past attempts at ending the conservatorship have failed, but her next hearing is this coming week on February 11th.
Fans are hoping to hear good news in the battle to free Britney.
