In reaction to the uproar surrounding allegations made against him in Britney Spears’ recently published memoir, “The Woman in Me,” Justin Timberlake has chosen to postpone a number of planned gigs. Since the book uncovers a number of alarming charges, including an alleged pregnancy and subsequent abortion, as well as accusations of adultery, the former couple’s turbulent relationship from 1999 to 2002 has taken center stage.
The original plan for the postponed performances was to include a tour to promote Timberlake’s next album. The ‘SexyBack’ singer, 42, was supposed to perform at a number of clubs in the early months of 2019, but according to TMZ, these events are no longer happening.
The Woman in Me
Since it debuted in bookstores this week, “The Woman in Me” has sold over 400,000 copies. The memoir has sparked a public discussion and unveiled a flurry of disclosures that shed light on the couple’s past.
Spears writes in the book that Timberlake, a *NSYNC breakthrough, got her pregnant and convinced her to get an abortion. A choice she later regretted. In addition, she said that he had betrayed her and denigrated her in public by calling her a “harlot who’d broken the heart of America’s golden boy.”
Justin Timberlake Hides Away
Prior to the disclosures, a number of sources had made suggestions that Timberlake “was not going to be happy.” And would not be pleased with how he was portrayed in the book. Spears, on the other hand, has insisted that her goal was to convey her viewpoint on the events. As they happened rather than to demonise anyone.
Positively, Timberlake’s old *NSYNC comrades, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone. Chris Kirkpatrick, and JC Chasez, are standing by him throughout this turbulent period despite the scandal. They want to work with Timberlake again after getting back together to record a song. “Better Place,” for the upcoming “Trolls” sequel.
The fact that the tour dates have been cancelled shows how much this developing conflict is affecting the once-celebrated pop singer.
