After a messy breakup and much drama in the past, Britney and Justin’s former relationship returned to the spotlight in 2021, thanks to the documentary 'Framing', which highlighted how Justin leaked that Britney wasn’t a virgin after their breakup in 2002. Following intense fan backlash, Justin publicly apologized to Britney Spears for failing her and said he regretted his actions. Despite the apology, Britney appears to still be resentful of Justin as she accused the former NSYNC band member of using her for 'fame' and 'attention'.

Following the latest call-out, which comes over a year after Justin publicly apologized to Britney for his past actions, an insider told HollywoodLife that Justin is staying away from anything Britney-related. The insider revealed, "He has made his comments about her in the recent past and has really been focusing on music. They had a great friendship that turned into a great relationship, and we all know how it ended and how they have moved on from it. He only wants the best for her, he isn’t going to put himself into any of her recent thoughts and will stay away from any social posts she does or anything else she says since he has moved on since they broke up twenty years ago."

The insider also emphasized the fact that Justin cares about his family very much now. He has been married to Jessica Biel and has two children, and says he has moved on. The insider noted that "he is a father, a husband, and a completely different man from before their breakup, and he is going to pursue keeping his life going towards positive things only."

Britney has also used her social media to call out her parents, her sister, and her manager for the allegedly terrible things they have done to her, including confinement in a conservatorship and stripping her of all her rights. She is also gearing up to write a $15 million tell-all memoir which is expected to reveal details of her romance with Justin.
