Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears broke up 18 years ago. Wow, it seems like yesterday the popstar duo were strutting down the red carpet at the American Music Awards wearing those infamous matching denim ensembles.
On Wednesday, Spears, 38, posted a video of herself on Instagram dancing to former beau Timberlake’s song “Filthy,” captioning what a musical genius he is — and Timberlake, 39, commented praising the unexpected compliment.

“I know we had one of the world’s biggest breakups 20 years ago…..but hey the man is a genius!!!! Great Song JT,” Spears said captioning a video of her dancing to the hit. And surprisingly, Timberlake commented on the post.
“😂🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻” Timberlake wrote in response to ex Britney’s video captured by the Instagram account Comments by Celebs (definitely a fun account to follow for celeb interactions…they’ll scroll through thousands of comments to find the jewels so you don’t have to).
And because, yes, they did have a crazy breakup that everyone couldn’t stop talking about…we thought we’d take it back to the early 2000s with a stroll down memory lane with the best of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s couple photos.
