Spears Opens Up About 2003 Romance in Her Memoir
According to Spears, they embarked on a passionate “two-week brawl” where they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. She describes it as an intense whirlwind romance.
Details of Their Fiery Short-Lived Tryst
Spears writes that she and Farrell were “all over each other, grappling so passionately it was like we were in a street fight.” Though only lasting 2 weeks, she depicts it as a fiery and lustful affair. Farrell brought Spears as his date to his film premiere soon after, seeming to confirm their involvement.
Spears says she tried not to get too attached but still hung up on ex-Timberlake. But the physical chemistry proved too fiery to resist.

At the premiere, Farrell denied seriously dating Spears, calling her a “sweet girl” and saying they were just mates. But Spears’ memoir makes clear their tryst went beyond simple friendship.
Both soon moved on, with Spears marrying Kevin Federline in 2004 and Farrell having children with two different women. Their short yet intense romance generated big headlines due to their huge fame.
