In a surprising turn of events, Britney Spears has deactivated her Instagram account shortly after making waves with her revealing memoir, “The Woman In Me,” and amid rumors of potential legal action from her former flame, Justin Timberlake.
The pop sensation decided to take a hiatus from the social media platform for reasons yet unknown. However, speculations have arisen regarding the 42-year-old Justin Timberlake’s contemplation of legal action against Britney for the content of her recently released memoir.
Fans who eagerly logged into Instagram on a Saturday morning were met with a message stating, “Sorry, this page isn’t available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed. Go back to Instagram.”
One of Britney’s last Instagram posts featured a video of her dancing in her living room, with a caption suggesting she would be “holding back” from social media. She acknowledged her tendency to post frequently and expressed her intention to share both past and future posts with her followers.
However, all comments on her recent posts, including this one, were disabled, possibly indicating her desire to reduce her social media presence.
Britney Spears made headlines in her memoir by delving into allegations of infidelity and an unplanned pregnancy during her relationship with Justin Timberlake, which spanned from 1999 to 2002. She revealed her perspective on the unplanned pregnancy, stating, “I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated.” She also shared Justin’s reluctance about becoming a father.
The revelations from her memoir triggered a strong reaction from fans, leading to Justin Timberlake’s decision to disable comments on his Instagram page. To escape the attention drawn by Britney’s memoir, Justin and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, reportedly embarked on a family trip to Cabo.
Recent reports suggest that Justin Timberlake, initially planning to weather the storm of public opinion, has grown “miserable” due to the negative attention surrounding events from over two decades ago. A source revealed that he is now considering legal action against Britney Spears to counter the backlash and protect his reputation.
Britney Spears, however, has maintained that her memoir was not intended to “offend” anyone and expressed her desire for a fresh start. In a message posted before the memoir’s release, she stated, “My book’s purpose was not to offend anyone by any means.” She emphasized that the content primarily pertained to events from 20 years ago and that she had moved on, aiming for a brighter future.
Britney’s memoir, “The Woman In Me,” was officially released on Tuesday, October 24, 2023, sparking a flurry of emotions, discussions, and potential legal battles in its wake.
