Britney Spears reveals in her bombshell new memoir that she had an abortion during her relationship with Justin Timberlake.

The Princess of Pop shares in The Woman in Me, which will hit bookstores on October 24, that her pregnancy was “a surprise” but not “a tragedy”, reports Page Six.

“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 writes in an excerpt published by People on Tuesday.

“But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young,” Spears continues.

“I’m sure people will hate me for this, but I agreed not to have the baby. I don’t know if that was the right decision. If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”

The pair reportedly terminated the pregnancy in late 2000 when the … Baby One More Time singer was 18 or 19 years old.

She writes that the procedure was “one of the most agonising things” she has ever experienced.

Ahead of the book’s release, sources told Page Six exclusively that Timberlake, 42, had been “concerned” about what Spears, 41, was going to share from their relationship.

“It’s eating at him,” one insider shared on Monday, while another insisted the tell-all was “not a take-down” of anyone in particular.

The former Mouseketeers started dating in 1999 when they were teenagers.

After their high-profile break-up in 2002, Timberlake infamously implied during an interview with Barbara Walters that Spears had cheated on him, which the Toxic singer neither confirmed nor denied at the time.

The Emmy-nominated 2021 New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears scrutinised the allegations while putting the media’s treatment of the music superstar under a microscope, prompting Timberlake to issue a belated apology to his former flame.

“I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be a part of a world that uplifts and supports,” he wrote in part on Instagram. “I care deeply about the wellbeing of the people I love and have loved. I can do better and I will do better.”

The *NSYNC member publicly supported Spears again later that year after she spoke out in open court for the first time about her “abusive” 13-year conservatorship, which has since been terminated.

“Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was … what’s happening to her is just not right,” he tweeted, adding a plea to the Crossroads star’s estranged family to “make this right and let her live however she wants to live.”

Spears did not respond to either of Timberlake’s social media posts, though she has since shared throwback photos of the exes as well as videos of herself dancing to his music.

Spears — who shares sons Sean Preston, 18, and Jayden James, 17, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline — is currently going through a divorce from Sam Asghari.

Timberlake, for his part, is married to Jessica Biel, with whom he shares sons Silas, 8, and Phineas, 3.
