Britney spears and justin timberlake started dating
Thanks for mucking that up, Adele.) While all the teen girls in the world were pining for Justin Timberlake, the curly-haired cutie had his eyes on one girl: his former "All New Mickey Mouse Club" co-star Britney Spears.
That same year, he released a companion album, "The 20/20 Experience -- 2 of 2." He topped off 2013 with an unforgettable appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards, during which he accepted the Video Vanguard Award, performed a 15-minute medley of his greatest hits and reunited with *NSYNC on stage. Justin Timberlake welcomed a son, Silas Randall Timberlake, with wife Jessica Biel in April 2015.
But sadly, even cutesy matching denim outfits couldn't save their relationship: The couple split in 2002 after Britney reportedly cheated on Justin with choreographer Wade Robson.
"You get to a point where you're crying yourself to sleep at night," Justin told People in 2002. I honestly know what it's like to have a broken heart now." At 21, Justin Timberlake was over the whole boy band thing and wanted to be seen as a mature R&B singer.
It was not intentional and is regrettable," JT said in an apology issued shortly after Nipplegate. But that wasn't Justin's only side business: He founded New York City barbecue restaurant Southern Hospitality and the Sauza 901 tequila brand. In 2006, Justin Timberlake really came into his own, music-wise, with the release of "Future Sex/Love Sounds." The album, which featured tracks including "Sexy Back" and "My Love" and earned Justin four Grammys, was a game-changer in JT's career.
"'Sexy Back' was the point when people stopped asking me when *NSYNC were going to reunite and started asking what I was going to do next," he told Entertainment Weekly in 2009.
