Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake famously dated from 1999 to 2002, and now, in her upcoming memoir, “The Woman in Me,” the pop star alleges that during their relationship, she became pregnant. 

Spears says that after Timberlake learned the news, he convinced her to have an abortion.

“It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy,” Spears wrote in an excerpt shared exclusively with People. “I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated.”

She continued, “But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young.”

“If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”

Spears writes that in the end, she decided to go along with Timberlake’s wishes.

“I’m sure people will hate me for this, but I agreed not to have the baby. I don’t know if that was the right decision. If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
