The former couple met as children while on the Mickey Mouse Club and later dated for around three years before their relationship came crashing down in 2002.
The Toxic singer, 41, is set to shed light on their relationship in her upcoming book, The Woman In Me – which is released on October 24 – with an extract revealing that she had an abortion after becoming pregnant with the 42-year-old’s baby.
According to the outlet, she confessed that they kissed while enjoying a wild evening at a bar.
‘We were out one night and we went to a Spanish bar. We danced and danced. I made out with him that night,’ she is thought to have written.
She insisted that she was loyal to the Cry Me A River star apart from ‘that one exception’, and that she was honest about the kiss – adding that they were able to move on from it.
The pair went their separate ways in 2002 and Justin went on to release Cry Me A River in the wake of their split, with many questioning whether the track was about their failed romance.
The lyrics alluded to a woman offering a groveling apology to her ex after being unfaithful, with the man refusing to listen.
‘You told me you loved me, why did you leave me all alone?,’ he could be heard singing. ‘It wasn’t like you only talked to him and you know it.’
As well as this, a woman who looked very much like the Baby One More Time star appeared in the music video, which referenced the newsboy cap she wore, and one of her tattoos.
Britney’s memoir hits the shelves on October 24 but Justin has yet to address it publicly.
However, the mom-of-two has since acknowledged the growing attention that The Woman In Me has been receiving, admitting that she’s only focusing on her new dog.
She posted on Instagram: ‘Been so busy lately and there are so many hard things to read in the news about my book!!! Writing the book was so hard!!!
‘Then I woke up this morning and said it’s all relative nothing really matters at this point!!! As long as Snow has her Noonie the world is a better place.’
