A lot of people have been talking about Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears in the wake of Britney's new memoir. She released The Woman In Me last month which drew quite a bit of attention for her honesty in regard to how the music industry at large treated her. One of the people who came out looking the worst as a result of the memoir was Justin Timberlake. Britney revealed all kinds of details about their relationship which left fans pretty upset with Timberlake.

The first big reveal came in the form of the bombshell that Timberlake got Spears pregnant while the two were dating in the early 2000s. They reportedly both agreed that it wasn't the right time to have a child though. In the memoir itself, Britney discusses the "excruciating" process of ending the pregnancy in secret. Even more disrespectful for fans was that Timberlake reportedly broke up with Spears by text. The backlash from her fans got so bad that Timberlake was forced to turn off all the comments on his Instagram.
