Many thought that Timberlake and Spears were made for one another as the pop stars seemed so happy and right together. In 2002, their fans were so surprised and upset when they broke up after allegations came forward that Spears had hooked up with her choreographer.
A lot of people already know about that whole situation, and how it broke up the couple that fans thought would be together forever. Well, it has now become a bit more complicated and is back under the spotlight since Spears’ choreographer was none other than Wade Robson.
At the time, Robson was reportedly dating Michael Jackson’s niece when he cheated on her with Britney Spears. As the story goes, Robson and that whole situation is the reason why Timberlake penned the song “Cry Me A River”.
“Cry Me A River” pointed all signs toward Britney Spears, as Timberlake was essentially putting the blame on her for their break up since she cheated on him.
Robson and Spears grew close in 1999 and 2000 when he co-directed her world tours. He would go on to do the same for her “Dream Within A Dream Tour” in 2001, as well as choreographing a number of her music videos. In 2001, Robson was also good friends with the choreographer of the “PopOdyssey Tour” for *NSYNC.
The details behind the story of Spears cheating on Timberlake, and Robson being the reason they broke up, has never been confirmed by anyone. Timberlake reportedly found a note from Robson to Spears in her Saturday Night Live dressing room in 2002 and that blew everything up.
