Spears and Timberlake met in The Mickey Mouse Club in the 1990s. The two admitted they were dating in 1999 and went on to become pop’s royal couple. Their relationship was thrust under the media microscope, with one of the main points of interest being whether or not they had slept together . The two eventually split in 2002 amid rumors she had cheated on him . In a 2011 interview with Vanity Fair, Timberlake said he hadn’t spoken to Spears in “nine or 10 years” but wished her the best. Since then, the songstress has had two children and two failed marriages, the first lasting only 55 hours. In January, Spears split from fiance Jason Trawick . The breakup inspired songs for her eighth yet-untitled studio album, due out Dec. 3. “During this album, I had a breakup with Jason that I went through that I wrote a lot about,” she told Champion. “They suck. Breakups suck, man. They do.” Related on HuffPost: Loading Slideshow Justin Timberlake & Britney Spears Justin never would have done that SNL skit where he admitted to taking Britney’s virginity.

Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to do battle at MTV EMAs
Photo: T Magazine HELLO, NEW DESKTOP BACKGROUND. In a recent spread from T Magazine , Justin Timberlake pierces our hearts with his eyes and makes us want to live in black and white FOREVER. He also appears quite pensive in kind of a worrisome way, in which case, we are totally here for you, JT. Seriously, cry us a river. (Heh.) We are available at a moments notice if you need a shoulder to weep on when Jessica isnt around, or whatever. Justin Timberlake in T Magazine. Photos: T Magazine In two photos from the sultry series, shot by Saint Laurent s Hedi Slimane , Timberlake goes for tortured greaser with a plain white t-shirt and leather shirt from the photographer/designers collection. And while JTs plain tee may look like any ol Hanes, it actually retails for $255so theres no sweating allowed in that thing. Ever. For that price, Im guessing it probably has its own armpit fans or some equally high-tech ventilation system. Moving on! How adorable is Justin with his sad-eyed stare in that $2,000 Dolce & Gabbana sweater? He kind of looks like a little lost boy who got separated from his mom at the mall after an innocent game of hiding under clothes racks went awry. I mean, this is clearly Slimane’s best work yet, amirite?!
