Spears also revealed in the pages of The Woman in Me that Timberlake cheated on her with another pop star during their relationship. Although she did not name the second woman to preserve her privacy, speculation has grown that it was Nicole Appleton, a member of the British band All Saints, per Page Six. A report from the time depicts Timberlake and Appleton evading photographers in the back of a car.
These revelations have put Timberlake's career at risk as per the source. The source stated that his representatives are working hard to protect him from the potential consequences of these charges. They are concerned about how these allegations may affect his image and, more importantly, his song sales.

According to the insider, Justin has spent months in preparations for his "big music comeback," and "he feels it's fresh and some of his best work." Now, he's experiencing "fear that the entire campaign will be centered on his reaction to the Britney stories and derailed by that narrative."
The source revealed, "For months the plan was all positive vibes built around the plan of Justin being back with some huge hip-hop tunes. But now it is what will he say about Britney and how will he handle it both in media promotion and even with fans? And no matter what people say publicly, behind closed doors the biggest fear is whether any of this will impact his sales. That is a big f**king worry."
The focus has shifted to how Timberlake will respond to these media charges and how his followers will see him in light of the scandal. His main concern is that these discoveries will have a negative influence on his sales. Spears' memoir has not only highlighted Timberlake's disloyalty but also shed light on the difficulties of their relationship.
