Justin Timberlake’s performance in Las Vegas, Britney Spears seemed to have addressed his “no disrespect” remarks.
The post was made two days after Timberlake appeared to make reference to the pop singer before starting to sing “Cry Me a River” during the Fontainebleau opening ceremony in Las Vegas.
In her most recent Instagram post, Britney Spears appeared to make reference to her ex-husband Justin Timberlake.
The post was made public two days after Timberlake promised to show “no disrespect” before performing his 2002 hit “Cry Me a River” in front of an illustrious audience on Wednesday night at the Fontainebleau’s launch in Las Vegas.
Spears posted a video of a man leaning against a wall and a leopard between two men who were pole dancing.
She said in the caption, “Oh Jesus Christ, the stories…” When we were filming this one, I could tell! The narrative is not even half told; there is always more to it! It was filmed in the scorching 120 degree Arizona heat For this song, two separate versions of the video were recorded. Most guys utter the phrase “OH I’M SHOOK”! He would cry if I told him about my basketball victory against him, but I never did. no disrespect !!!”
In July 2001, Spears and Timberlake, 42, made headlines when they showed up to *NSYNC’s third annual Challenge for the Children charity event wearing similar jerseys with their respective nicknames, Pinky and Stinky.
Since the publication of Spears’ biography The Woman in Me, their relationship—despite their 1999–2002 dating—has garnered media attention.
“My followers need to hear it straight from me—it’s finally time for me to stand out and raise my voice. Before its publication in October, she told PEOPLE, “No more conspiracy, no more lies, just me owning my past, present, and future.”
Spears revealed information about their relationship in her biography, including the assertion that she had an abortion after finding out she was expecting his child.
Regarding “Cry Me a River” and accompanying music video, she also claimed that it made her appear to the world like a “harlot who’d broken the heart of America’s golden boy” while she was “comatose in Louisiana, and he was happily running around Hollywood.”

Although Timberlake did not explicitly state that Spears was the inspiration for the song, he did earlier mention in his book, Hindsight: & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me (2018), that he composed it after being “scorned.”
“I’ve received contempt. I’ve been really irate. ‘Cry Me a River’ was written in two hours. “I had not intended to write it,” he wrote.
