Justin Timberlake - Justin Timberlake Apologises for Branding ex-Girlfriend Britney Spears a "B*tch" at Superbowl Performance

Justin Timberlake's triumphant comeback had been nigh-on perfect, from the suspense-filled announcement of new music, to the exciting news that he'd be performing at a pre-game Superbowl Party last Saturday, as well as at the Grammys and the Brits. However, he almost tarnished it when fans thought he'd branded his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears a 'b*tch', which he has since apologised for, reports Yahoo.

His iconic break-up/heart-break 2002 song 'Cry Me a River' was allegedly written about Britney Spears after they broke up. To introduce his performance of it on Saturday he said, "Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out, that she is just some b***h." Numerous members of the audience considered this an active attack on Britney. She notoriously cheated on him with choreographer Wade Robinson which lead to the break-up. However, since then they have both moved on. Britney Spears has been married, had two children, gone a little crazy, and is now back on the straight-and-narrow. JT had a continued enormously successful solo career and has since forged himself a decent acting career. Plus he married Jessica Biel year. Not bad going.

In response to all the criticism, he apologised via Twitter:
