But Timbaland went further, cracking: “I wanted to call and say, ‘JT, you gotta put a muzzle on that girl.’” In the memoir, Spears wrote that Timberlake used the song to tear her down for cheating on him, when in fact he had serially cheated on her during their relationship. Outraged responses to Timbaland’s comments came in thick and fast, with Spears devotees calling for his cancellation.
