Justin Timberlake once threatened to reveal ‘every dirty thing’ about ex Britney Spears in resurfaced interview

What goes around comes around.

An interview in which Justin Timberlake threatened to reveal “every dirty thing” about his ex Britney Spears has resurfaced days before her bombshell memoir is set to be released.

“I dated Britney half my life, but I don’t know that person anymore. I’m not sure I knew her before,” he told journalist Robert Haskell in a 2006 profile, according to a screenshot shared on Twitter on Friday.

“If I was writing an article about her, I would not be able to fight the urge to write every dirty thing about her.”

Timberlake’s remarks re-emerged online as excerpts from The Woman In Mehave slowly leaked to the public ahead of its October 24 release.

In the book, the Gimme More singer, 41, revealed she had an abortion during her relationship with the *NSYNC frontman — whom she dated from 1999 to 2002.

“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 wrote in an excerpt published by People Tuesday.

However, Spears said Timberlake, 42, “wasn’t happy” about the pregnancy because of how young they were. (Spears was 18 or 19 at the time.)

“He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young,” she claimed.

“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 Princess of Pop also claimed that Timberlake cheated on her with “another celebrity” during their three-year relationship.

Spears did not disclose the other woman’s name because she “now has a family [Spears] doesn’t want to embarrass,” per TMZ.

However, the Toxic singer didn’t put all of the blame on the Cry Me A River musician.

She also admitted in her forthcoming memoir that she cheated on Timberlake with dancer Wade Robson.

“We were out one night, and we went to a Spanish bar. We danced and danced. I made out with him that night,” she wrote, per The Sun US.

Spears said that she and the Mirrors singer chose to “move past” the infidelity because she was “loyal to Justin” and “only had eyes for him.”

The former Mousketeers called it quits in 2002 after Timberlake broke up with Spears via text.

The 10-time Grammy winner has not publicly responded to the excerpts from Spears’ memoir.
