Justin Timberlake Loves, Respects Cameron Diaz

by at . Comments

Awww.

Although he and Cameron Diaz broke up earlier this year after nearly four years together, Justin Timberlake has nothing but kind words for his ex.

Asked about the split by British GQ, Timberlake says, "It's hard for me to talk about because we're talking about a person that I love and respect."

Justin Timberlake, known for being mum about his personal life, makes it clear that he'd never speak badly about Diaz and wouldn't tolerate anyone else doing it, either.

"If I hear anyone say anything bad about Cameron then I'll have something to say to them," he tells the magazine in its May issue.

When it comes to the subject of his other ex, Britney Spears, Timberlake tells the magazine, "Honestly, I am so far removed from that situation."

Justin Timberlake's best friend, Trace Ayala, seconds that, saying, "She just isn't part of his life." This in spite of the fact that Timbaland wants to work with her.

As for the rumor that Justin sent a veiled message to Britney Spears while accepting a Brit Award for best male solo artist in February, the singer is mystified.

At the awards ceremony, Timberlake told the crowd, "Stop drinking! You know who you are. I'm speaking to you. You are going to get sloppy!"

Naturally, some tabloids guessed was a reference to Spears, who checked her crazy self into rehab later that month.

Timberlake says he "didn't know anything" about the rumor and shakes his head in disbelief, asking, "A coded message to Britney Spears?"

Seriously. There was also a supposed heartwarming letter to Britney he didn't write.

Anyway, Justin clearly has other things to think about. No, not tapping the incredible booty of Scarlett Johansson. Well, at least we don't think so.

JT is midway through his FutureSex/LoveShow tour, which wraps up in China in September, and starring in the new movie, Black Snake Moan, with Christina Ricci and Samuel L. Jackson, currently in theaters.
