Britney Spears reminisces about Justin Timberlake romance and says she's 'learning'

Britney Spears has been reminiscing about her past relationship with Justin Timberlake as she admitted "she's learning".

The 41-year-old Princess of Pop took to Instagram on Tuesday to share some throwback snaps of herself playing basketball with her ex-boyfriend, who she dated from 1999 until 2002.

In the now-deleted post, Justin and Britney donned matching basketball kits as they participated in a charity game back in 2001.

"When we used to shoot hoops TOGETHER … that’s when miracles happened," Britney captioned her post.

She added a cryptic message about being "cast out", writing: "I came out of my mom’s stomach just like we all did !!! Psss … why always cast me out ??? I’m equal as all !!!"

Fans seemed confused by Britney's post, with one person tweeting: "Now hold on why is Britney Spears posting old pics of her and Justin."

Another added: "Britney out here posting Justin pics now. Omg. Is this 2002?!"

A third fan joked: "Lawd Britney is out here reminiscing about Justin. JLo and Ben are married. Carrie and Aidan are holding hands. I just need my early 2000’s ex to know he can stay right where he’s at…I’m GOOD."

The post comes as Britney also shared a message about learning to love yourself.

The singer posted the words "She's learning (I'm she)" and wrote: "I wonder what attention feels like !!!

"Not the kind where you’re on defense, but the kind where you learn to sink into your bones and love yourself !!!"

Britney turned off comments on the post.

She also shared a teaser video after getting a new tattoo on her arm.

In the clip, posted on her Instagram account, the Baby One More Time hitmaker danced around her hotel room before an artist started tattooing her arm.

Britney wrote: "Tattoo in Maui 3 days ago !!! Can’t show it because it sucks !!! Like really really sucks !!! S**t !!! Psss … I have to fix it !!!"

The star seemed to see the funny side, however, as she added a series of crying laughing faces.

Britney has at least nine other tattoos, including a triangle tattoo on her right hand, a fairy on her lower back and lips on her right forearm.
