Justin Timberlake’s surprise reunion with *NSYNC was not the only moment that made headlines at the 2023 VMAs. Fans believed that Timberlake and Megan Thee Stallion had a heated argument backstage however, a source told Variety that was not the case at all.
A video went viral last night (Sept. 12) when the “Plan B” rapper was getting her hair touched up backstage. It is then seen that Megan is talking to someone with an emotional expression on her face which is then identified as Timberlake. A source backstage told Variety there was “zero fight” but just an exchange of showing love for one another.
“He said, ‘It’s so nice to meet you,’ and she said ‘No, no this don’t count, this don’t count. We gotta meet proper.’
“It was very cute,” the source says.
Another source backed up the claim saying that, “Meg loves Justin. She was saying ‘No, no, no, we’ve never met before.’ It was their first time meeting and she was excited.”
Megan Thee Stallion Clears Up Rumor
In addition, Megan posted a video on Instagram of her and Justin smiling with the caption “I just talk with my hands lol @justintimberlake love ya [blue heart emoji].”
Both artists received a lot of attention that night as Taylor Swift fan-girled when *NSYNC presented her with the Best Pop Video award for her song “Anti-Hero.”
Megan Thee Stallion performed in her first televised event since Tory Lanez’s sentencing. The “Say It” rapper was sentenced to 10 years in prison after the 2020 shooting which left Megan with a bullet in her foot. In May, Megan spoke to InStyle Magazine about releasing new music – telling the publication that “fans can expect new music when [she’s] in a better place.”
Megan recently hopped on Cardi B’s “Bongos” which is the Bronx rapper’s first song as a lead artist this year.
