Britney Spears, the pop icon, has seemingly responded to her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake's recent arrest with a cryptic Instagram post. On Tuesday, Spears shared a photo of a colorful cocktail adorned with a flower and cherry, captioned, “It’s the little things you know!!!” The post appeared shortly after news broke of Timberlake's arrest on DWI-related charges.

The Grammy-winning singer also posted a video of herself in what she described as her “first cocktail dress ever” and shared a glimpse of her legs as she tanned in a pool. The timing of these posts has led many to speculate that Spears was subtly addressing Timberlake's legal troubles.

Timberlake, 43, was arrested early Tuesday morning in Sag Harbor, NY, after a night out at the American Hotel with friends. He was pulled over by police for allegedly running a stop sign and swerving out of his lane. According to the Sag Harbor Village Police Department, Timberlake refused a breathalyzer test and insisted he had only consumed one martini. The arresting officer noted that Timberlake had "bloodshot and glassy" eyes, as confirmed by his mugshot.

Following his arrest, Timberlake was taken to the Sag Harbor Village Justice Court where he was arraigned and released without bail. Timberlake, who is married to actress Jessica Biel and has two sons, Silas and Phineas, has not publicly commented on the incident. Sources have told Page Six that Timberlake has been "hiding and masking" a "real drinking problem ... for years."

Spears and Timberlake, both former stars of the “All New Mickey Mouse Club,” dated from 1999 to 2002. Their relationship was highly publicized and tumultuous, with accusations of infidelity from both sides. After their breakup, Timberlake released the hit song "Cry Me a River," which implied that Spears had been unfaithful. In her 2023 memoir, "The Woman in Me," Spears countered these accusations, claiming that Timberlake had been the one to cheat. She also revealed that she had an abortion during their relationship because Timberlake was not ready to be a father.

Timberlake’s arrest has drawn significant media attention, partly due to his high-profile marriage to Biel. The actress was seen continuing her work on the film "The Better Sister" in Manhattan on the day of Timberlake’s arrest. The incident has brought renewed scrutiny to Timberlake’s personal life and past behavior, with many recalling Spears' revelations in her memoir.

Spears' Instagram post, while not directly addressing Timberlake's arrest, has been widely interpreted as a subtle nod to the situation. The singer has frequently used social media to communicate with her fans and share glimpses of her life. Her recent posts have continued to captivate her audience, sparking discussions and speculation about their deeper meanings.

Timberlake’s legal troubles come at a time when he is actively touring for his "Forget Tomorrow World Tour." The impact of his arrest on his professional commitments remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Spears, who has been in the spotlight for her own legal battles and conservatorship issues, appears to be enjoying her time in Las Vegas, sharing moments of relaxation and celebration with her followers.
