Shortly after Justin Timberlake stepped out at the "Trolls" premiere, Britney Spears stepped away from Instagram.

It is unclear why the 41-year-old pop star deactivated her Instagram account, but it could be due to reports that the 42-year-old former *NSYNC boy bander is considering taking legal action against her for things that she wrote in her bombshell memoir, "The Woman In Me," which was released on Tuesday, October 24, 2023.

Justin Timberlake And Britney Spears

The “Toxic” singer reflected on allegations of infidelity and even an unplanned pregnancy in the former couple’s relationship, which took place from 1999 to 2002.

“It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated,” Britney wrote of the unplanned pregnancy. “But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”

“I don’t know if that was the right decision. If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father,” she continued, adding, “To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”

The news hit fans harder than expected, prompting the “Cry Me A River” singer to disable comments on his Instagram page. After fans started going after his wife, actress Jessica Biel, the Hollywood stars took their two children on a family trip to Cabo to escape the attention caused by Britney’s memoir.

On Friday, a source said that the “Mirrors” crooner initially planned to “ride” out the backlash but was “miserable” with all of the negative attention that he has been receiving for events that took place over twenty years ago. “His original plan was to ride this out,” an insider told the National Enquirer. “But it’s consuming his entire life and making his family miserable.”

“There’s all this hate being hurled at him and Jessica and various high-profile types are unfollowing him, including Madonna — and to cap it off, Britney is threatening to come after him again in a second book,” the source continued, referring to how Madonna unfollowed JT on Instagram.

“He’s furious and looking at legal options,” the insider added. “He’s fully prepared to take Britney to court and make her pay.”

"Hopefully I can enlighten people who feel particularly alone in most cases or hurt or misunderstood !!! Again, my motive for this book was not to harp on my past experiences which is what the press is doing and it's dumb and silly !!!" she concluded. "I have moved on since then !! #TheWomaninMe."
