 The 'Toxic' singer and Timberlake met at the 'Mickey Mouse club' back in the 90s. They were both part of the well-known club. However, that wasn't the time when the two started dating. It was actually some time later, in 1999 when the love between them was in every single headline! The young lovebirds didn't last long. Unfortunately, their breakup happened in 2001. Once more, the whole world was talking about them. 

Did Britney cheat on him?

Timberlake wrote 'Cry me a river' in 2002. It was about a girl being unfaithful. The song made everybody believe Britney had cheated on him. According to our source, Britney was seeing her choreographer, Wade Robson. Actually, I used the wrong words. The two seemed to have connected in the way only couples do, if you know what I mean. The terrible part of the whole story is that Robson was Britney's choreographer, but, he also knew Timberlake quite a bit! Justin said the following after their shocking breakup

'The break-up was absolutely heartbreaking for me'.

The pop princess didn't ever refer to their breakup as a cheating situation but as one in which they both had different aim in life. Britney wanted to get married and Justin wasn't apparently that sure of tying the knot. The blonde star was never unfaithful according to her point of view. They were simply after different goals. 

The real reason

The 'Cry me a river' singer was a real gentleman because he told his ex-girlfriend he was never going to tell the real reason behind their breakup. Surely Britney was about to have something with her choreographer and the moment Justin realized they decided to end their relationship before something else happened. Even though they have both had different relationships, they have ever since their separation been on fantastic terms. Something pretty weird within Hollywood, but the two Mickey Mouse Club members managed to be good 'friends' now.
