Furthermore, Sam Asghari, the “Crossroads” actress’ current boyfriend, expressed his own share of sentiments under the clip.

“Snapchat, [Instagram], TikTok, Facebook, even MySpace was inspired by you," he replied with a fire emoji, hands raised emoji and a red heart.

As Cosmopolitan reports, Timberlake and Spears dated from 1999 to 2002. Following their breakup, the “Filthy” singer released “Cry Me A River,” which many believe was about his sour ending with Spears.

Timberlake has since married actress Jessica Biel. The two wed in 2012 and share 5-year-old son Silas. On the other hand, Spears shares two sons, Sean and Jayden, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline. The two wed in 2004 before splitting in 2007.

This is not the first time the former couple has had some form of interaction though since their highly-publicized split. In 2016, Spears admitted that she'd like to collaborate with Timberlake.

"Justin Timberlake is very good," she said during a fan Q&A for Most Requested Live with Romeo. Upon hearing the news, Timberlake seemed to welcome the idea.

"Sure, absolutely...I'm accessible. Give us a call!" " he told E! News at the time.
