Britney Spears showed there were no hard feelings as she called ex Justin Timberlake a “genius” and danced to his music despite them going through “one of the world's biggest breakups”.
The pair started dating in the late 90s when Spears was at the height of her pop fame and ruled the charts, but they went their separate ways in 2002. At the time there was plenty of gossip about why they broke up and there were rumours that Timberlake’s track Cry Me A River was about the split.
