Justin Timberlake Spears Insult Refuted By Singer

Justin Timberlake has risked re-opening an argument with old flame Britney Spears, after fans misconstrued something he said whilst live on stage in New Orleans at the weekend (February 2.) However the star, who was playing his first full concert in five years, moved quickly to deny that his comments were about his old partner who he split up from back in 2002. So what exactly did he say?

According to Us Magazine, Timberlake was getting ready to perform his anthem ‘Cry Me A River’, a sing recorded and released right in the aftermath of that break-up. Introducing it, he told the packed out crowd "Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out that she is just some b*tch." Oof, surely that was about Britney?

No, apparently. Twitter certainly got murmuring, but the 32 year-old quickly shut down any rumors that he was directing those comments at his former girlfriend. "OK. I see you. Wouldn't disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever," he tweeted. So who was he talking about? It seems like we’ll never know. Timberlake’s certainly looking to come back with a bang; he’s going to be visiting both sides of the Atlantic for awards shows, performing at the Grammys on February 10 before playing a huge show at the Hollywood Palladium on the same night. Then, on February 20, he’ll be performing at the BRITS in London; all this and new album The 20/20 Experience to come on March 20 too. Looks like JT’s making up for lost time.
