01 – From US Weekly: “Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears ran into each other on August 1st, for the first time since their March split – and it wasn’t pretty. According to sources, Timberlake, 21 was dancing with gal pal Jenna Dewan at the Lounge in LA when Spears – whose parents, Hot Stuff has learned, have officially divorced – walked in around 12:30 a.m. As Timberlake and Dewan danced, Britney “watched like crazy,” says a spy. Then, when Justin went to get drinks, Britney got up and followed him.” That’s when it got messy. After Spears, 20 asked if they could talk (they haven’t spoken for about a month says a pal of hers), Timberlake, says a source, told Spears, “If its about us getting back together, forget it.” From there, says the source, Spears – alluding to Timberlake’s sighting with Janet Jackson – “started talking crap about Jenna and the way he was using different women for media attention.” Timberlake then shot back about “her cheating and they got into a huge argument” says a snitch. Then the 10 minute blow out ended, and Timberlake got back on the dance floor. As the *Nsync song, “Girlfriend” played, Timberlake and dancer Dewan began doing some of the moves they had done at this year’s Grammys. Spears then hit the dance floor “and started a dance off” says another witness. “He would do a move, then she would do a move, says an onlooker. “It was very tense and dramatic, like West Side Story. Alas, there was no happy ending. By 2 a.m., Timberlake had split leaving Spears solo.”
