Justin Timberlake Denies Calling Britney Spears A "B***h" During Super Bowl Concert

The 'Suit & Tie' singer has also admitted he likes the now famous saying from her song 'Scream & Shout'.

Justin Timberlake has denied claims he referred to ex-girlfriend Britney Spears as a "b***h" during his pre-Super Bowl charity concert this past weekend.

The 'SexyBack' singer gave his first live performance in years in New Orleans on Saturday night (2nd February), and was rumoured to have made reference to the 'Scream & Shout' singer before performing his song 'Cry Me A River'.

"Sometimes in life, you think you found the one," Justin is quoted as saying before the performance. "But then one day you find out that she is just some b***h!"

However, Justin has since taken to Twitter to deny claims he was referring to Britney, and made a joke about the now famous lyric from her and Will.i.am's recent number one single.

"Ok. I see you. Wouldn't disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever," Justin tweeted yesterday (3rd February). "#Relax #ItsBritneyB***h I do love that saying though *with accent& #Respect."

The 'My Love' singer, who recently returned with new single 'Suit & Tie', has also praised Beyonce for her Super Bowl halftime show performance.
