It’s like Jamie Lynn Spears wanted to give THG something to post about today.

The newly-engaged sister of Britney Spears Tweeted at Justin Timberlake out of nowhere yesterday and referenced the “Cry Me a River” controversy.

From 2002. Which is probably about when this undated and unsourced photo she Tweeted (and then deleted right away) was taken. Check it out …

For reasons unknown, Jamie Lynn Spears wrote to JT: “@jtimberlake Weird hearing ur music as an Adult. Ha Not only do I appreciate it. I GET it. #jay #crymeariver #mirror.”

When “Cry Me a River” first came out, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears had just ended a high-profile, made-in-celeb gossip heaven romance.


The music video (below) featured a blond girl who many speculated was a Britney doppelganger, while the lyrics implied she Tweeted on the superstar.

Is she saying she now understands why he wrote what he did? And in essence confirming that her sister fooled around behind his back over a decade ago?!

Earlier this year, JT performed the track at the Super Bowl, where he said, “Sometimes, you think you’ve found the one, but then one day you find out she is just some bitch.”

He later denied this was a shot at Britney Spears.

“Wouldn’t disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever. #Relax #ItsBritneyBitch I do love that saying though *with accent* #Respect,” Timberlake Tweeted.

As for Jamie Lynn … who the heck knows what prompted that, but it was gone from her Twitter almost as soon as the 21-year-old posted it.

So we got nothing.
