(KP International) It's been more than four years since pop's popular couple Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake split up, but JT's mother is still in mourning.
"Britney grew up on my living room floor," said Timberlake's mother and manager, Lynn Harless. "I still love her to death. Justin and Britney were together for 10 or 11 years, and from day one they had that chemistry between them."
Timberlake and Spears met as young mouseketeers, and apparently remained close through the awkward adolescent years before they appeared in public as a couple in 2000. Since their split, Timberlake has begun dating actress Cameron Diaz and Spears has said walked down the aisle twice (though the first time in Vegas may have been more of a stumble than a walk). Her second and current marriage to backup dancer turned wannabe rapper Kevin Federline has been the focus of tabloid scrutiny and public mockery - all of which upsets Harless. "Britney is a sweet girl," she said. "I just hate what she's going through now."
