Britney Spears Reveals Abortion While Dating Justin Timberlake

In her upcoming memoir, The Woman in Me, Britney Spears reveals that she had an abortion while dating Justin Timberlake. The pop star was 21 years old at the time, and Timberlake was 20.

Spears writes in the book that she was “surprised” by the pregnancy, but that it wasn’t a “tragedy” for her. She says that she loved Timberlake and expected them to have a family together one day, but that she also knew they weren’t ready to have a baby at that time.

Timberlake, however, was not happy about the pregnancy. Spears writes that he told her they weren’t ready to have a baby and that they were “way too young.” She also says that he was “so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”

Spears says that she was ultimately the one who made the decision to have an abortion, but that she felt pressured by Timberlake to do so. She writes that she didn’t know if it was the right decision, and that she would not have had an abortion if it had been “left up to me alone.”

Spears also writes about the emotional toll that the abortion took on her. She says that it was “one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”

Spears and Timberlake broke up in 2002. Spears went on to marry Kevin Federline in 2004 and have two sons with him. She and Federline divorced in 2007.

Spears’ revelation about her abortion has been met with support from many fans and celebrities. Many have praised her for her courage and honesty in sharing her story.

The Significance of Spears’ Revelation

Spears’ revelation about her abortion is significant for a number of reasons. First, it is rare for celebrities to speak openly about their abortions. This is likely due to the stigma that is still attached to abortion, even though it is a common and legal medical procedure.

Second, Spears’ revelation comes at a time when abortion rights are under attack in the United States. The Supreme Court recently overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, after 50 years. We are now seeing the effects of the ruling and how it has made it more difficult for millions of women to access abortion care.

Spears’ story is a reminder that abortion is a personal decision that should be made by women and their doctors, without interference from the government. It is also a reminder that abortion is often a difficult and painful experience, even for those who choose it freely.

The Impact of Spears’ Revelation on Timberlake

Spears’ revelation about her abortion has also had an impact on Timberlake. Some people have criticized him for his role in Spears’ decision to have an abortion, given that he was not supportive of the pregnancy.

One Britney Spears fan wrote “The issue isn’t him not wanting to be a father- it’s the timeline of it all. The abortion. The breakup. The ‘everytime video’ and then him using the breakup and her trauma to absolutely catalyst his solo career.”


Others have defended Timberlake, saying that he was a young man at the time and that he should not be blamed for Spears’ decision. Ultimately, only Spears and Timberlake know what really happened between them.

What Spears’ Revelation Means for Women

Spears’ revelation about her abortion is a powerful message for women everywhere. It is a reminder that women have the right to make their own decisions about their bodies and their lives. It is also a reminder that women are not alone in their experiences, even when those experiences are difficult.

Spears’ story is a reminder that it is okay to talk about abortion. It is also a reminder that abortion is a normal part of reproductive healthcare.

The Woman in Me will reveal for the first time Britney’s incredible journey—and the strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history. The book is set to release October 24th, but you can pre-order your copy now.
