Britney Spears has shared a cryptic message on her Instagram page after her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake appeared to throw shade during a recent concert.
On Thursday night, Britney shared a photo of an orange moon positioned next to a basketball hoop, along with the message: “Someone told me someone was talking bad about me on the street!!! Do you want to take it to court or are you going to go home crying in front of your mother like you did last time???”
“I don’t feel guilty!!!” he added.
While the chart-topping singer didn’t name anyone, it’s probably worth noting that this post comes after Justin made headlines when he introduced a live performance of his song Cry Me A River with the message that he would apologize to “fucking” nobody- Who”.

Cry Me A River was released after Justin’s split from Britney, and is widely thought to be inspired by the end of their relationship.
Interestingly, earlier this week, Britney praised Justin’s new single, Selfish, while also apologizing for several things written in her 2023 memoir, The Woman In Me.
“I want to apologize for some of the things I wrote in my book,” another Instagram post read. “If I offended someone I truly care about, I am truly sorry.

Previously, Britney fans had attempted to overshadow the release of Selfish by sending back the song of the same name released by the Baby One More Time singer more than a decade ago into the charts.
Interestingly, Britney now appears to have deleted the post celebrating Justin’s new music.

“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to a problem, when I spoke inappropriately, or did not speak up for what was right,” Justin wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post.
“I understand that I failed in these moments and many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism. I also feel compelled to respond, in part because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be a part of and grow.”
