Britney Spears’ younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, caused mayhem after sharing a throwback photo of the “Toxic” singer with her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake and now, theories have exploded all over the Internet. As Timberlake tries to piece his marriage with Jessica Biel back together following cheating rumors, Jamie Lynn did him no favors by sharing the snap from his denim wearing days with Britney. In the photo that Jamie shared from her childhood, the now 28-year-old is seen sitting on a couch next to the then-couple and of all people, Natalie Portman. Justin Timberlake seemed to be serenading the “Zoey 101” star as Britney and the “Black Swan” actress laughed on.
“Nothing like childhood memories…” Jamie Lynn captioned the photo. Seemingly shading Timberlake, she tagged Natalie Portman, her famous sister, and a fan site but didn’t include the former NSYNC singer and it’s opened the door for major fan conspiracy theories. After one fan pointed out that Jamie Lynn “forgot to tag Justin,” several people chimed in with possibilities why. “I’m sure it’s bc of how he treated Brit,” one fan wrote. “He’s married folly [sic] why she didn’t,” another commented while adding a shoulder-shrugging emoji. “She probably don’t wanna bother him so no need to tag him,” responded a third person. Others were too distracted by the thrill of the picture to even care about Jamie Lynn not tagging Justin Timberlake.
“Still hoping @justintimberlake & @britneyspears get back together,” someone wrote. “My idol couple forever and ever #britneyandjustinforever,” commented another. One person cleared up all the assumptions though, telling everyone, “For those wondering why she didn’t tag Justin, she don’t follow him lol.” And she’s exactly right. The only Justins she follows include Justin Bieber and songwriter Justin Tranter. For those of you wondering, he doesn’t follow her either. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake famously dated in the early 2000s but broke up three years later. There were several rumors surrounding their split, including one that the “…Baby One More Time” singer cheated on Timberlake with her backup dancer Wade Robinson.
Many fans thought his song “Cry Me a River” was about Britney’s infidelity. Jamie Lynn Spears’ timing may not have been the best considering what he’s going on with his wife. His own faithfulness was questioned when photos circulated showing him holding hands with his “Palmer” co-star Alisha Wainwright earlier this month. Despite the pics, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are working through the drama. According to reports, she’s sticking by her famous singing husband and believes that he remained faithful in their marriage.
