Justin Timberlake sends fans WILD with his shout-out to ex Britney Spears after she danced to his song Filthy – The Sun

JUSTIN Timberlake has given a shout-out to his ex Britney Spears after she danced to his song Filthy and called him a "genius".

The SexyBack singer, 39, sent fans into meltdown as he posted a laughing face and several high five emojis under Britney's clip on Instagram.

Fans of the former couple – who famously dated from 1999 until 2002 – couldn't hold it together after seeing Justin's comment.

One wrote: "Omg!!!!! Can we just go back to 2000/2001!"

Another added: "This is the most legendary interaction."

A third posted: "I’m no longer mad about this quarantine!"

One user even compared the exchange to Brad Pitt and his ex-wife's recent flirtations, writing: "This may surpass the return of Brad and Jen for me."

Britney set the internet alight on Wednesday when she called Justin a “genius” as she danced to his song Filthy despite having the "world's biggest breakup” 20 years ago.

The “bored” Toxic singer wore a black lace choker, white denim shorts and a white crop-top in the video.

She twirled around and shook her hips while sticking her tongue out at the camera making funny faces.

Britney praised her ex in the caption to her nearly 24 million followers:

“This is my version of Snapchat or TikTok or whatever the cool thing you're supposed to do these days!!!!!

"As you can see I’m not really dancing folks…… I’m just very bored.”

She then went on to acknowledge the split heard around the world: “PS I know we had one of the world's biggest breakups 20 years ago…

“But hey the man is a genius !!!! Great song JT!!!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT'S GOOD!!!!!!” She concluded the caption.

Her current boyfriend Sam Asghari, 26, didn’t seem to mind the ex throwback and commented on the post: “Snapchat, instgram, tiktok, Facebook, even MySpace was inspired by you!”

Britney has been dating the fitness trainer hunk since October 2016.

The music icon began a romantic relationship with the NSYNC boy-bander in 1999.

Both at the height of their success at the time, they quickly became one of the most famous couples in the world.

However, the pair called-it-quits in 2002 amid allegations she cheated on Justin with choreographer Wade Robson.

Justin’s hit song Cry Me a River is highly speculated to be about their bitter breakup.

He revealed in 2002: “I’ve been scorned. I’ve been pissed off. The feelings I had were so strong I had to write it.

“I translated my feelings into a form where people could listen and hopefully relate to it. People heard me and they understood it because we’ve all been there.”

Britney and her ex met as kids on the set of The Disney Channel's series The New Mickey Mouse Club.

They were only 12-years-old when they first appeared on the show in 1992 and remained on the cast until 1995.

Christina Aguilera, 39, and Ryan Gosling, 39, were also part of the Disney group that went on to become household names.

Justin married actress Jessica Biel, 38, in 2012 and share five-year-old son Silas Randall together.

Britney has 13-year-old son Jayden James and 14-year-old son Sean with ex husband Kevin Federline, 42.

The rapper and dancer married his baby mama in 2004 but divorced in 2007 – the same year Britney had her infamous meltdown and shaved her head.
