Pop superstar Justin Timberlake is at the centre of a plastic surgery riddle after reports in a British magazine that he has had his ears pinned back.

The CRY ME A RIVER singer was photographed in the early days of his career with slightly protruding ears - whereas recent pictures of the 'N Sync hunk show them as more streamlined.

DR DAI DAVIES, from PLASTIC SURGERY PARTNERS on London's Harley Street, tells gossip magazine HEAT, "It looks from these pictures that the rotation on Justin's ears is slightly different.

"Correcting protruding ears in teenagers or young adults is a very easy procedure which is usually done under local anaesthetic."

However the singer's spokesman insists, "Justin hasn't had any plastic surgery that we're aware of."
