Another source told the publication Timberlake understands his past is a "topic of interest," as he issued a public apology last year to Jackson and Britney Spears, whom he dated from 1999 until 2002. At the time, he took accountability for the times he "contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right."

The source also told the outlet that Timberlake is looking forward to the future now that Jackson has spoken out and Spears' conservatorship has been terminated. The In Time star is, "really looking forward to the moment where he can do new music, do new films and when he is talking about his life, he can talk about the great things that are happening in it rather than harping on controversy."
