OK! claims that Britney and Justin will sing duet for Spears’ new album

OK! must really be getting desperate for stories. Either that or they have some really hot, shockingly implausible gossip. The British version of the mag claims that the US version (yes you read that right) that Britney Spears is finally reuniting with Justin Timberlake to work on a duet for her upcoming album.

The two famously parted ways after Spears cheated on him, which seemed to kickoff her downward spiral. After that she married a guy for 24 hours, then married K-Fed (almost equally ill-advised moves), popped out two kids in rapid succession, divorced K-Fed, and then really went crazy.

Justin has long refused to have anything to do with Britney, wisely realizing that it could hurt his career and his credibility. But according to OK!, he’s finally changed his mind.

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake will reunite to sing a duet for Britney’s newest album. The singer, who recently became an auntie, will get a helping hand from the SexyBack singer, reveals OK! USA exclusively.

Madonna recently revealed she would love to reunite the pair during her world tour. Britney is currently working on her latest album, which is yet to be assigned a release date. Her record label said: “[Britney] is spending her summer in the recording studio, working on a brand new album.”

“She’s working with a team of top-notch producers and songwriters and we’re very excited about what she’s accomplished so far.” Britney and Justin met on Disney TV show, The Mickey Mouse Club, in 1993, they started dating in 1998 but split in 2002. It is widely thought that Justin’s singles Cry Me A River and What Goes Around were written about Britney.

It sounds like OK! is jumping to conclusions based on what they’d like to see happen. It’d be interesting if they recorded together once Britney’s completely got her life together and is back at the top of her game. Anything else will seem like charity. Justin is noted for his perfectionist tendencies, which could lead to a really good song with Brit. But right now she’s still a little out of practice, and it’s probably important that she pick herself up, with the help of family and professionals. Not by being rescued by an ex-boyfriend.

    I seriously think that a duet with JT would be huge boost to Brit, both professionally and personally. By personally, I mean that it might help keep her going in the right direction, getting herself in order, and give her a bump in self-esteem.

  3. elisha says:

    poor brit didnt even get jt when he was hot. he got her when she was hot.

  4. Kaiser says:

    You know, I always hated Justin for the way he treated Britney. I think he really tried (and succeeded) to launch his solo career out of the f–ed-up ashes of that relationship.

  5. pinky tuscadero says:

    This would definitely be a boost for Britney, but I agree that it would merely be charitable on his part. Unless it was hugely successful of course, then he’d take all the credit. In the long run, I think Britney should mount her own successful comeback before she considers getting into bed (creatively, hehee) with Justin. She can do it! I still have a few vestiges of hope for her.

    Send this story back to 1999 when she was still hot and he wasn’t a little skirt-wearing pansy fruit hiding behind macho.

  7. RAN says:

    I can’t stand that little jerk. For once I agree with Kaiser 😆

  8. Alicia says:

    If this story is true, Justin must not realize how messed up Brit is. Because how many of you think she’d fall in love or something to that effect with him again?!

    I mean she’s making a turn for the good and this has the chance to reverse it and for the worse of it. I’m not going to hate on Justin for the simple fact he’s my age and lots of the dudes I know and grew up with did the exact same thing with some of the stuff Justin has done but grew up. Justin kind of seems to me like he’s matured some.

    But if he does get back into the recording studio with Britney, I give up! Because if they get into the studio again and everyone who loved them as a couple will be rooting for them to get back together again. I used to be a fan but am so over them as an item.

    Let’s give her credit — in her most
    recent public appearances she’s been
    looking great.

    @ kaiser: I agree, he totally used their relationship to promote his carreer. The lamest thing was when he said in a radio show “I fkded Britney Spears” after the host promised him to air his stupid song if he would say it.
    Justin would have more to win than Britney if they make a duet.This is just like that thing with Mtv, they said they would consider to give Britney another chance to perform at the VMAs, so nice of them 😐 She’s a freakin’ superstar (a crazy one these past few years), everything that she does gets huuuuuge media coverage.Wanna be on tv? Say something about Britney Spears!
    @elisha:I always said that 😆

  11. Kaiser says:

    Say it ain’t so, RAN! 🙂

    Ally –
    Justin = Douchebag. Just say no!

  12. poopie says:

    he is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUGLY.. I CANNOT STAND TO LOOK ! Burns my retinas !!! honestly, i have never seen what ANYONE sees in this guy, talent and ESP. in the looks dept. with that PUBE HEAD HAIR of his !! ACCKK

  13. Che says:

    Why doesn’t she take a break, rest & relax and get herself together before going back into the recording studio? Does she need the money or something?

    Justin Timberfake is an ass. His music sucks, he’s ugly, creepy and thinks he’s the white Michael Jackson. 🙄

    After the way he’s talked about her, dissed her and used her to get PR – she should avoid him all together! If it’s true – Have some respect for yourself Britney.

  14. Christina X says:

    You know what, Kaiser? I’m with you.

    I never really noticed how much of an asshole Justin Timberlake is up until recently.

    They broke up when? Six years ago? Seven? I’m sure that whatever she was doing, couldn’t have been that horrible or something he was probably not doing to begin with.

    Jesus Timberlake is the one who won’t STFU about how “over Britney” he is. We get it, and for someone so “hurt”, he moved on 😮 pretty quickly. Yeah, he probably wasn’t getting ass on the side.

    I hadn’t watched the VMAs for years, but hearing that he allegedly mocked her performance and the fact that he was so reluctant to help her when she was in need really helped me to form my opinion that he is no good.

    I’m surprised Jesus Christ could get down from his pedestal to be civil with her.

    What a dick.

    Of course Madonna would like to reunite them. She’d be salivating all the way to the bank.

    Fucking no-talent-(save for her talent to stay in the public eye)-mediawhore.
