Britney Spears toasts the “little things in life” after Justin Timberlake's arrest

Britney Spears shared a toast with her millions of fans on social media hours after her ex-boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, was arrested for drunk driving.

The “Womanizer” hitmaker, 42, dated the former NSYNC band member, 43, from 1992 to 2002. She claimed in her memoir: The woman in mehe had encouraged her to have an abortion during their relationship and then dumped her via text message.

Timberlake was arrested in the Hamptons for driving while intoxicated in the early morning hours of Tuesday (June 18). That afternoon, Spears shared a happy post with her followers.

The pop star posted photos of herself relaxing in a pool and enjoying a cocktail in Las Vegas, where she will be performing. “It's the little things you know!!!” she said.

Although the singer has her Instagram comments section disabled, Spears' fans quickly assumed the post was about Timberlake on other platforms.

“You mean karma sucks,” one person claimed, while other fans called her an “icon” for enjoying her afternoon.

The independent Britney Spears' representatives have been contacted for comment.

Timberlake was arrested in the wealthy Hamptons enclave of Sag Harbor, Long Island, known as a popular destination for celebrities in the summer months. The pop star claimed to have consumed only “one martini,” according to a complaint obtained by the New York Post.

According to a report, the police officer who arrested Timberlake was so young that he did not recognize the superstar. The musician appeared in a Long Island court on Tuesday and was released without bail, but he is due back in court on July 26.

Police told the outlet that Timberlake was partying at the American Hotel and ran a stop sign in his 2025 BMW as he left. The police began to follow him and stopped him when he began to swerve. The singer told police that he was following his friends home.

The singer “performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests” and repeatedly refused to take a breathalyzer, the complaint says.

The officers looked at Timberlake with glassy eyes and smelled alcohol on his breath. “He couldn't divide his attention, his speech was slower and he walked unsteadily.”

The independent has contacted a representative for Timberlake, a spokesperson for the police department and the Sag Harbor Courthouse for comment.
