Justin Timberlake blasted for Britney Spears, Janet Jackson downfalls

The digital tirade against Timberlake, 40, comes in the wake of poignant New York Times documentaries detailing the dismantling of the respective music careers of Spears, 39, and Jackson, 55, in the mid-2000s. : Destructions in which the “SexyBack” singer apparently played lead roles.

“Framing Britney Spears” recalls Timberlake’s willingness to subtly scapegoat the “Baby One More Time” singer for her momentous breakup in March 2002.
