JUSTIN Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel will be left devastated by Britney Spears’ bombshell revelation that she aborted his baby over two decades ago, a long-time family friend has told The US Sun.
The Gimme More singer’s upcoming memoir “The Woman In Me” will reveal the tragic claim, according to sources cited TMZ.
Britney, 41, was reported to have become pregnant with Justin’s baby in 2000 when the couple were around 19 years old.
After “heartbreaking discussions”, the couple, who were together between 1999 and 2002, agreed she would have an abortion, it was said.
The decision is said to have “haunted” Britney before she had her sons Sean Preston in 2005 and Jayden James in 2006 with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Justin, 42, married The Illusionist actress Jessica, 41, in 2012 and the couple share sons Silas, 8, and Phineas, 3.
A source told The US Sun: “Justin is aware of who he was when he and Britney were together, even if his personality, career, lifestyle and personal priorities are radically different now, 20 years later are.”
“This book is a nightmare for him because it throws the whole family into chaos. The timing hurts as much as the revelation itself.”
The insider continued, “Justin had a big fall planned with new music on board, more work with his old friends at NSYNC and of course the next installment of the Trolls series, which has been a big moneymaker for Justin over the last few years.” several years.”
Britney’s memoir is scheduled to be released on October 24th.
There has already been speculation about what this will mean about Britney’s relationship with Justin, who sources say was the true love of her life.
Justin has not yet commented on the claims.
“Forced by circumstances?”
However, an insider from The US Sun said the Cry Me A River singer may have no choice but to tell his side of the story.
The source explained, “I have no idea if he ever told Jessica about the abortion because Justin’s relationship with Britney isn’t something he discusses with his friends.”
“He doesn’t deny it, but for him it was a million years ago. I don’t think Justin will publicly deny Britney’s claims just because that’s not his style. But circumstances may force him to do so.
“Justin had closed that chapter in his life and now Britney is putting it out there for everyone to see again.”
The insider added: “This is a difficult time and Justin’s usual strategy of just letting things go may not be enough, especially at this moment in his career when he is really trying to get back into the game in a big way get.”
The source said that Justin made a conscious decision not to get involved in the drama surrounding Britney’s life in recent years as he is in a different phase of his life.
The Battles of the British
From February 2008 to November 2001, Britney was in a controversial psychiatric facility under the direction of her father Jamie.
The Sun revealed on Tuesday that Britney’s memoir recounts how her conservator father terrified her since she was a child because he was “mean, apathetic and cold”.
After her release from conservatorship, Britney married her fitness model boyfriend Sam Asghari, 29.
Their marriage collapsed in August this year when Sam filed for divorce.
The US Sun insider said: “Justin has voluntarily remained on the sidelines of Britney’s conservatorship drama, even though he knows every member of Britney’s family quite well.”
“The thing is, Justin just wants to be a middle-aged dad and has no desire to relive the drama and darkness that crept into his 20s.
“And he loves being a father more than he ever imagined when he was looking for fame and platinum records.”
The source continued, “The chickens are coming home to roost in the form of Britney’s book, but I don’t think it will destroy what Justin has built with Jessica.”
“If they really stick together, they can get through this, and Justin isn’t trying to steal Britney’s moment in the spotlight with her book.
“She has been through hell and she deserves credit for her courage. But it also reopens old wounds that Justin thought had long since healed.”
“TRUE FIRST LOVE”
In her upcoming book, Britney reportedly explains that her religious upbringing meant she was not raised to have an abortion.
According to TMZ, Britney writes that she “always expected” to one day start a family with Justin, but the pregnancy came earlier than expected and Justin felt like they weren’t ready due to their age.
A second Hollywood star claimed to The US Sun: “It is common knowledge in Britney’s world that she is truly obsessed with Justin and has been for many years.”
“She had admitted to people privately that he was her true first love, and in many ways she never got over losing him.
“Of all the men who came into her world after her breakup, no one came close to matching Justin – to their mutual friends, that’s just a fact, whether she admits it or not.”
The insider also shared, “It is also known that Britney tried to reach out to Justin even after he was married to Jessica, while she was under conservatorship, and even after Sam came on the scene.”
“But apparently Justin didn’t like it, partly because he wanted to move on, but also because he didn’t want to disrespect Jessica by reconnecting with a serious ex.
