American actress Jessica Biel lends support to her husband Justin Timberlake through a message of love and support for him after he apologized to his ex Britney Spears and Janet Jackson.
What’s the matter?
Justin issued a statement on Instagram following Hulu’s release of The New York Times Presents: Framing Britney Spears documentary focusing on the pop star’s disturbed personal life over the past decade. The documentary also showed how she splitted with Justin Timberlake in 2002.
Timberlake wrote: “I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed. I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from.”
Framing Britney Spears
Framing Britney Spears referred to Spears-Timberlake’s breakup and release of the music video “Cry Me a River” that featured a look-alike of Britney Spears implying she cheated on Timberlake. The documentary also has an audio from a radio interview where Justin boasted about sleeping with Britney.
The release of the documentary also led to netizens expressing their support for Britney and mentioning Justin-Jackson’s infamous “Nipplegate” controversy.
Justice Against Injustice
Recently Justin issued a statement where he apologized for what happened in the past.
“The industry is flawed,” Timberlake wrote in his apology post on Instagram on Friday. “It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It’s designed this way. As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn’t recognize it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again.”
“I have not been perfect in navigating all of this throughout my career. I know this apology is a first step and doesn’t absolve the past. I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports. I care deeply about the wellbeing of the people I love and have loved. I can do better and I will do better,” the singer added.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have been married for 8 years now. The actress commented: “I love you. [heart emoji]” on Justin’s post where he also stated that “I am deeply sorry for the time in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
