How Jessica Biel Reportedly Feels About Justin Timberlake’s Recent Back-and-Forth with Britney Spears

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake have seemingly been estranged ever since they called it quits in the early 2000s.

Let’s recap what happened and how Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel, reportedly feels about their interaction.

This began when Britney Spears posted a video dancing to Justin Timberlake’s music

Spears posted an Instagram video of her dancing to Timberlake’s song “Filthy,” which appears on his 2018 album Man of the Woods.

“This is my version of Snapchat or TikTok or whatever the cool thing you’re supposed to do these days 😅😅😅💃!!!!! As you can see I’m not really dancing folks …… I’m just very bored,” she said in the caption.

Spears then mentioned her split from the “SexyBack” star, adding: “PS I know we had one of the world’s biggest breakups 20 years ago …… but hey the man is a genius !!!! Great song JT ✨ !!!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT’S GOOD 😜 !!!!!!”

To the shock of everyone, Timberlake responded to the post, leaving a laughing emoji along with a few raised hands in the comment section.

Fans immediately lost it and began to reminisce about their romance. In case you forgot, Spears and Timberlake practically grew up together after meeting on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club in 1993 and later began dating.

They were together from 1998 to 2002, splitting amid rumors that Spears had allegedly cheated on Timberlake with choreographer Wade Robson. Neither of them directly addressed the rumors, but Timberlake fueled them in the video for “Cry Me A River,” where he exposes a woman who looked like Spears for being unfaithful.

Jessica Biel’s reported reaction to the interaction

Biel herself has not publicly addressed the interaction between Timberlake and Spears. However, a source told HollywoodLife on April 17 that she has no problem with it.

”Jessica is totally cool with Justin and Britney’s back and forth on Instagram,” said the source, who is supposedly close to the actress. “It was really fun to see people happy about their reconnection.”

“Nothing is going to come from it romantically,” the insider added of the former couple. “Jess is just happy that she puts smiles on people’s faces in this time when smiles are all we need,” the source continued, referring to the coronavirus pandemic, which has basically brought life to a standstill.

Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears have totally moved on

After their breakup, Timberlake moved on with Biel. They began dating in 2007 and married in 2012. Together, they share a son, Silas.

Spears, on the other hand, has been in a relationship with Sam Asghari, a personal trainer-turned-model, since 2016. She has two kids from her previous relationship with artist Kevin Federline, whom she divorced in 2007 after less than three years of marriage.

Even though things didn’t work out between them, another source told HollywoodLife that there is no bad blood between the singers.

“Of course Justin has moved on from everything that went down between him and Britney and wishes her nothing but the best. So much time has passed and it’s all water under the bridge at this point,” the insider shared. “It was so long ago and they were kids and at many different points in their lives. He thought her post was hilarious and thought it was sweet for her to give him a shout out like that.”

For sure.
