Justin Timberlake Infatuated By Britney Spears

by | 21st, July 2006

“I WAS in love with her from the start,” says Justin Timberlake. “Infatuated with her from the moment I saw her.”

Justin is not talking of Cameron Diaz, his current beau, but of Britney Spears, his old flame.

It was a difficult time for Justin when he and Britney split. He was just 21 years old and, like he says, smitten and besotted with the blonde-ish singer.

So he wrote a song. It’s called Cry Me A River and features the lines: “You told me you loved me/ Why did you leave me all alone?/ Now you tell me you need me/ When you call me on the phone.”

There was much speculation as to what Justin meant. Had Britney cheated on him? Did she leave him? Was Justin right to rhyme “phone” with alone”

“When we initially parted I felt like she had a couple of opportunities to just sort of stick up for me and she didn’t,” says Justin.

Of course, time is the great healer. Justin now has Cameron. And Britney is the muse for singer-songwriter-dancer Kevin Federline, aka K-Ferret – a man who makes so many of us feel like crying a river of tears as the laughter makes our eyes water…
