But was their shock split all down to Michael Jackson accuser Wade Robson? Here's the story.
How does Michael Jackson accuser Wade Robson know Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake?
Britney and Wade grew close after he co-directed her 1999 and 2000 world tours, and her Dream Within a Dream Tour in 2001.
He also choreographed her music video Slave 4 U and Drive Me Crazy – the latter he briefly appears in.
Wade was also good friends with Justin and was both director and choreographer of NSYNC’s PopOdyssey Tour in 2001.
Did Wade Robson break up Britney and Justin?
Although it’s never been confirmed by any of the trio, it was widely reported at the time that Wade was the real reason for the Justin and Britney split.
It's reported Brit and the choreographer were 'hooking up' during her tours in the early 00s.
It was revealed that Justin uncovered the alleged affair when he discovered a note in Britney's room in February 2002, on the night that the two pop stars were scheduled to appear on Saturday Night Live.
The pair split soon after this and in September 2002 Justin told The Telegraph: “The break-up was absolutely heartbreaking for me.
"I can’t just have meaningless relationships with women.
"I have to find Miss Right in order to have a relationship. There’s got to be that big moment when she comes along."
Was Justin's song Cry Me a River about Britney 'cheating' on him?
We all remember Justin's song Cry Me a River, which basically pointed the finger at Britney being responsible for their break-up because she had an affair.
While JT has never confirmed this, he has revealed it didn't take him long to write the tune as he was so angry.
Speaking about the song in his book, Hindsight: & All the Things I Can't See in Front of Me, he said: "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," according to People.
"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."
What did Wade say about Britney in the Leaving Neverland documentary?
Wade revealed in the Leaving Neverland, which aired on Channel 4 in March 2019, that Michael Jackson was "obsessed" with Britney.
Speaking on the controversial documentary, he said: "Michael had some obsession with Britney, and he would call me and he would want to know what she was like and (he would say) 'Isn't she sexy? 'Isn't she beautiful?' Wondering if I could set up a way for them to meet."
Wade was joined in the documentary by James Safechuck in accusing the late singer of sexually abusing them when they were children.
