Justin Timberlake apologizes to Britney Spears two decades after their split

American singer Justin Timberlake apologized to singer Britney Spears after nearly two decades of their emotional separation, after his documentary accused him of exploiting this chapter in the relationship to elicit public sympathy.

In the documentary broadcast by "FX" on cable and on the "Hulu" channel entitled "Fretting, Britney Spears" and produced by "The New York Times", witnesses confirm that Justin Timberlake used his breakup with Britney Spears in 2002 to launch his solitary career.

He overlooked the accusation by several media outlets that Britney Spears had betrayed him and ended the relationship abruptly, without any public position on the matter.

Witnesses in the documentary recall that Timberlake presented his hit song "Cray Me A River" as directly inspired by the breakup with Britney Spears after a four-year affair (1998-2002).

The song´s lyrics clearly tell the story of a man who was emotionally betrayed, and in the video version of it, he used a woman who looked like Britney Spears without showing her face clearly.

And while he was performing a duet with Michael Jackson´s sister at a break during the annual "Super Bowl" match on February 1, 2004, the former singer of the "In-Cin" youth band, live on the air, removed part of the singer´s dress revealing one of her breasts A move that shocked the country.

This moment had a greater impact on Janet Jackson´s career than Justin Timberlake did.

After a torrent of letters demanding that the singer apologize to Spears, the Memphis singer wrote on Instagram, "I care for these two women. I respect them and know I didn´t do what I should have done."

Timberlake, who is currently married to actress Jessica Biel, added, "I deeply regret these moments in my life in which my work contributed to the problem and the words I took away from it and I did not express the right thing."

He added, "I was not at the required level in those moments as in many other times," and "I have benefited from a system that encourages discrimination against women and racism."
