Britney Spears has opened up about a pivotal moment in her life, revealing that she got pregnant during her highly publicized relationship with Justin Timberlake.
This revelation is part of her forthcoming book, “The Woman in Me,” set to be released on October 24.
An excerpt from the book, as reported by People, discloses that Spears was expecting a child, but Timberlake expressed concerns, stating that they were “way too young” to become parents. Spears, however, had a different perspective on the situation.
“It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy,” she wrote. “I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated. But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”
Spears and Timberlake, who made their relationship public in 1999, ultimately separated several years later, leaving fans to speculate whether their creative work afterward was influenced by their relationship.
In her upcoming book, Spears reveals that she and Timberlake decided to have an abortion. She expressed her hesitancy toward the decision, writing, “If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it,” but Timberlake was certain that he didn’t want to be a father.
Both Spears and Timberlake have gone on to become parents in subsequent relationships. Despite the passage of over two decades since their relationship was in the spotlight, fans continue to discuss and analyze the significance of their past together.
“The Woman in Me” is scheduled for release on October 24 and provides readers with insights into Spears’ life and experiences, including how she found ways to push back against the challenges of fame, such as her decision to shave her head.
On the other hand, Timberlake has recently been in the spotlight with the *NSYNC reunion track, “Better Place.”
