What’s age got to do with it when it comes to love.
This was circa 1996 when Timberlake was a teen sensation-in-the-making at a wee 16-years-old and loving the older girls like Fergie, who was 23 and one-third of the pop trio, Wild Orchid.
But as fate would have it, their love wasn’t meant to last.
“He was 16 and I was 23,” Fergie told Australia’s Courier Mail. “It was before he got real heavy with Britney.”
Breaking up with Fergie only meant there was more room in JT’s heart for everyone’s favorite pop princess Britney Spears who became everyone’s favorite pop teen dream couple for three glorious years. Then he moved on Alyssa Milano, Scar Jo and Cameron Diaz, but who’s counting, right?
Because there can be a happily ever after… even in Tinseltown.
JT soon sowed those wild oats and tied the knot with his on, then off, then on-again love of five years Jessica Biel last October: “She is the single-handedly the most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person,” he told Vanity Fair in 2011.
And mommy-to-be Fergie said “I do” to big screen hottie Josh Duhamel in 2009 after five years of dating.
