The singer, who allegedly crafted the hit “Cry Me A River” for ex/pop starlet Britney Spears, is shooting down rumors that he insulted his former fellow Mouseketeer. He reportedly said, “Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out, that she is just some b***h!” before performing the Timbaland-produced cut at his Super Bowl DirecTV concert Saturday night.
Later that night, he tweeted that wasn’t the case. “Ok. I see you. Wouldn’t disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever. #Relax #ItsBritneyBitch I do love that saying though*with accent* #Respect,” Justin wrote.
The “Suit & Tie” singer, now married to actress Jessica Biel, admitted in an interview with Vanity Fair that he hasn’t spoken to Brit in many years but that there is no bad blood.
“I wish her the best–that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in nine or ten years,” he said in the June 2011 issue. “We were two birds of the same feather–small-town kids, doing the same thing. But when you become adults, the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person.”
