Justin and Britney met each other as kids when they were both Mouseketeers on “The Mickey Mouse Club.” 

Britney says they quickly connected and he kissed her at a sleepover during a game of Truth or Dare. 

The two eventually began dating in 1999 and Britney Spears considered Justin Timberlake to be the love of her life.

In the memoir, Britney writes:

It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. 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.

Britney admits in the book, “If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.

The decision to terminate her pregnancy still weighs heavily on her heart. 

To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life,” Britney wrote.

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake intimately ended their relationship in 2002.

A year later, the couple welcomed their second son, Jayden James. 

Unfortunately, Britney’s marriage to Kevin ended in 2007.

Kevin Federline got full custody of their sons in 2008 following Britney Spears’ mental breakdown.
