Justin Timberlake is reportedly unhappy about drama with Britney Spears "overshadowing" the release of his music. And by that we mean a source tells Page Six that he's "seething." But in case you missed said drama, quick recap:

  • Justin dropped a song called "Selfish" and Britney fans responded by making her 2011 song of the same name top the charts.

  • Britney then posted an extremely nice shoutout to Justin on Instagram, saying in part "I wanna apologize for some of the things I wrote about in my book" and "I am in love with Justin Timberlake’s new song 'Selfish.'"

  • Justin performed in New York City and seemingly started "Cry Me a River" by saying “I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely fucking nobody.”

Which brings us back to Page Six's insider, who says Justin is “seething” over the drama “overshadowing his new music,” and "had hoped the backlash [from Spears’ memoir] would’ve blown over by now so that he could focus on his new album, which he’s very excited about, but every day is something new."

This comes amid another source telling Us Weekly that “Justin hasn’t been letting the Britney fans get him down. He believes his music and performance will speak for itself and is looking forward to connecting with his fans from the stage again.”

AND yet another source saying that Justin is “very much on a path forward” and isn’t getting “sidetracked by the negativity."
