Justin Timberlake is reportedly considering legal action against ex-girlfriend Britney Spears after her shocking memoir turned fans and Hollywood A-listers against him and wife Jessica Biel, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Insiders claimed the former NSYNC star initially planned to "ride" out the storm of controversy brewing over his past relationship with the pop princess, but now he's said to be "miserable" over the tell-all scandal.
The 41-year-old Toxic singer revealed in her best-selling memoir, The Woman in Me, that Timberlake pressured her into an abortion when they dated in 2000, because he wasn't ready to become a father, though Spears admitted she raised to be against abortions and felt "conflicted" over the pregnancy.
"His original plan was to ride this out," an insider told the National Enquirer. "But it's consuming his entire life and making his family miserable."
"There's all this hate being hurled at him and Jessica and various high-profile types are unfollowing him, including Madonna — and to cap it off, Britney is threatening to come after him again in a second book!" the source continued.
"He's furious and looking at legal options," the mole added. "He's fully prepared to take Britney to court and make her pay!"
