Justin Timberlake denies calling ex-Britney 'a b****'

London, Feb 5 (ANI): Britney Spears fans were not too thrilled to hear her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake refer to the pop singer as "some b****" during his pre-Super Bowl concert in New Orleans.

The incident occurred when the 32-year-old newlywed was performing his first concert in five years to a packed A-list crowd at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night, the Daily Mail reported.

"Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out that she is just some b****," he said.

The 'Suit and Tie' hitmaker then launched into his 2002 breakup anthem, 'Cry Me a River', which was reportedly inspired after the Toxic singer's alleged affair with Timberlake's choreographer Wade Robson.

Once word spread of Timberlake's onstage banter, the 'Social Network' star felt the need to reassure Spears' fans that he has nothing but respect for his ex.

"Ok. I see you. Wouldn't disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever," he tweeted on Sunday to his 16 million followers. (ANI)
