Did they? It has been rumoured that Justin dumped Britney after finding a love note from choreographer Wade (pictured) who appears in the Leaving Neverland documentary
Britney, now 37, and Justin, 38, dated from 1999 until 2002 and were something of an iconic pop couple in their matching double denim outfits.
But it has been rumoured that Justin dumped Britney after finding a love note from her choreographer Wade Robson, 36, before they were about to appear on SNL.
This rumour was also referenced in a Lifetime biopic about pop star Britney in a show called
Partnership: Britney and Wade grew close after he co-directed her 1999-2001 tours, but neither party have ever commented on the rumours about a fling

It’s fair to say that Justin hinted that Britney had an affair in the music video for his single, Cry Me A River, released that same, year, which featured a Britney lookalike.
Justin wrote in his book, Hindsight: & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me: ‘I’ve been scorned. I’ve been pissed off. I wrote Cry Me a River in two hours.
‘I didn’t plan on writing it. The feelings I had were so strong that I had to write it, and I translated my feelings into a form where people could listen and, hopefully, relate to it. People heard me and they understood it because we’ve all been there.’
Shock claims: Wade, pictured aged 5, won first prize in a dance competition which led to his fateful meeting with Michael Jackson, (pictured) and years of alleged abuse
Justin is now happily married to Jessica Biel, while Britney is dating Sam Asghari. Wade has been married to Amanda Rodriguez since 2005.
MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Britney Spears for comment.
Wade appears on the Leaving Neverland documentary, released this week and in which he details the alleged abuse he suffered for many years by Jackson as a child.
Robson, an Australian, was five when he first met Jackson after winning a dance competition in Brisbane.
Jackson’s estate wrote to Channel 4 last month claiming the documentary violates the network’s programming guidelines.
The family has denounced Leaving Neverland, saying: ‘Michael always turned the other cheek, and we have always turned the other cheek when people have gone after members of our family — that is the Jackson way.
‘But we can’t just stand by while this public lynching goes on…. Michael is not here to defend himself, otherwise these allegations would not have been made.’
The family points out that Jackson was subjected to a thorough investigation which included a surprise raid of his home, the Neverland Ranch, but was still acquitted at his criminal trial in 2005, in a case involving another young man.
Mr Robson testified at that trial, saying he had slept in Jackson’s room many times, but that Jackson had never molested him.
