Date: 26th March 2002
Britney Spears has given the strongest hint yet that her relationship with Justin Timberlake is over. The couple have been subject of fierce media scrutiny after reports they had split earlier this month (March 2002).
Representatives for the singers have refused to confirm the break-up, but the pop babe has told British reporters at a press conference for her new movie she was not in "an intense relationship with anyone at the moment".
When pressed on the issue, Britney refused to say more on the subject, preferring to concentrate on questions relating to her film debut, Crossroads (2002). The singer also said she wanted to concentrate on her acting career.
She says, "Acting is so much fun. It is a different ball game and I want to concentrate on that at the moment. I'm really passionate about what I do. I love entertainment and telling stories to people and I am very lucky that I am doing what I want to do. " She told reporters she had two more films in the pipeline with Crossroads producer Ann Carli.
