"Contrary to what has been erroneously reported, Britney Spears and [I] are neither engaged or married." Justin Timberlake 11/18/1997
"[We kiss] sometimes." Britney Spears 5/1998
I laughed when I heard [the rumors]. If I was seriously thinking about getting engaged to anyone, nobody would know about it." Justin Timberlake 11/27/2000
"When you're comfortable with someone you love, the silence is the best. And that's how me and J are. When we're in a room together, we don't have to say anything. It's for real." Britney Spears 10/2000
"It just sucks that my family was so worried about [rumors that me and Britney were sent to the hospital from a car crash] and Britney's family, too, because they're part of my family. [I] got, like, six phone calls from different people in my family immediately. The first thing I did [when I heard] was call Britney. She was in L.A. and I was in, I believe, Philadelphia the day it happened so we were across the country from each other...The first thing she says to me was like, 'Hey, where are you?' You know, we both kind of heard about it at the same time. Since the beginning [of] our relationship, there's always been things that have been said that were totally not true. But this just, like, took it to a whole 'nother planet." Justin Timberlake 6/22/2001
"[She's] the cream of the crop. I want [our collaboration] to be somethin' new that they haven't heard us do, that they didn't think we could do. I feel like we still have artistic growth to show...It definitely would be a spectacle." Justin Timberlake 7/25/2001
"It's nice to be at a point in your life when you know you can make your schedule fit the people you love. We were just talking about it two days ago. We were figuring out the schedule about where we were going to be for Thanksgiving." Justin Timberlake 11/7/2001
"No, that's not true. Me and Justin did not split up." Britney Spears 3/11/2002
"[I'm] not in an intense relationship with anyone at the moment." Britney Spears 3/26/2002
"I gave her a whole bath assortment of cute little products. Britney loves taking baths." Justin Timberlake 2/2002
"I'm single, right now." Britney Spears 3/27/2002
We're climbing two different mountains. His priorities are different from mine right now." Britney Spears 6/19/2002
"[I can't even say] breakup [because] it hurts too bad...You get to a point when you're crying yourself to sleep every night. I feel like I'm in the middle of a soap opera. I honestly know what it's like to have a broken heart." Justin Timberlake 6/19/2002
"Of course it's gonna kind of hurt sometimes, and you wonder things. But you learn from it and grow. I'm trying to get to that point. You go out to a club, and people say, 'Are you fine? Are you fine?' And it's like, 'I'm here, aren't I?' What if I was some weakling and I was like, 'Whaaa!' Crying!" Britney Spears 6/19/2002
"I love Britney, and I'll always love her." Justin Timberlake 6/19/2002
"My head spun [when I first saw her]." Justin Timberlake 6/24/2002
"First Justin broke up with me, and then I broke up with him. It was horrible. Very upsetting, and it took a lot out of me. He was my first real love, and I doubt I'll ever be able to love anyone like that again. [We] recently tried to get back together, [but] right now in my life, it's not right." Britney Spears 8/22/2002
"Honestly, I mean, you know, we're not perfect. I don't judge anybody. It's just young love...It was a very intense relationship, that's for sure. [Whether we'll ever get back together is] so tough to say. I mean, at this point in my life, if you really want to know who my girlfriend is, it's the 13 songs on that CD." Justin Timberlake 11/4/2002
"I feel I became so consumed with her that I didn't see some things that I should have seen. I don't feel like I'm saying too much by saying she knows why this happened. Britney's a fire sign, a Sagittarius, they do things on a whim." Justin Timberlake 12/30/2002
"I was in love with her from the start. I was infatuated with her from the moment I saw her. [Our relationship is] a distant thing. When we initially parted ways I felt like she had a couple of opportunities to just sort of stick up for me, and she didn't. Which is fine. But at that time, you know, I fought back. I used my mind. I came up with a song, ['Cry Me a River']. I wish her well, and I want to see her win. I don't think you can ever count somebody like her out. Because she may appear one way, but she's very clever." Justin Timberlake 7/19/2006
"We had our thing, and it's over." Justin Timberlake 3/20/2007
"I still talk to her on the phone. I hold her in the highest light." Justin Timberlake 6/23/2002
"I think I got way too serious, way too young. It's very healthy to not be in that relationship right now...Now I think, 'Whoah, [settling down with Justin] would have been the biggest mistake of my life.'" Britney Spears 8/6/2003
"It was hard for me that he was so exploitative [in his 'Cry Me a River' video]. Every interview that he did, he was just talking about us in such an open way and I just felt, 'Is nothing sacred anymore?' It was weird. It was...disappointing." Britney Spears 8/6/2003
"It's a little crazy. When a person like her, who's obviously a sweet person, is having their first child, it's like, leave the girl alone, let her have the baby! I do think [putting authorized pictures of her baby online] is crossing the line. That's her baby and those are her baby pictures." Justin Timberlake 11/23/2005
"I wish her well, and I want to see her win. I don't think you can ever count somebody like her out. Because she may appear one way, but she's very clever." Justin Timberlake 7/19/2006
"I haven't spoken to her in years. I mean, there's no ill will - I have nothing but love for her. It's funny because we dated each other at a time... wow, I haven't talked about this in a long time. It's interesting." Justin Timberlake 9/2007
"I think she's a great person, and I don't know her as well as I did ... . What I do know about her is she has a huge heart, and she is a great person." Justin Timberlake 9/2007
