Justin and Britney dated for a few years, before their romance ended amid rumours she had cheated on the singer with one of her backup dancers.

Fans hit out at Justin after the Framing Britney Spears documentary explored their romance and he later issued an apology to the singer "because he cares for and respects" her and "he knows he failed".

However, a source insists Britney holds "no grudge" to Justin for the music video.

"Britney has been on the receiving end of so much hate through the years, particularly on social media," the source told US Weekly.

"She would never want her fans to release the hounds on Justin. Hate isn't going to solve anything, regardless of what happened in the past. Britney does not hold a grudge against Justin over anything he's said or done."
