Britney Spears is pulling no punches on social media any more, and her latest post was a sassy reference to her ex Justin Timberlake using a lookalike of her in his music video for Cry Me A River. 

Justin, 40, had released the music video in 2002 after the couple split, casting a girl who looked similar to Britney and paying reference to the newsboy cap she used to wear as well as her tattoo.

Britney addressed the lookalike as she posted a video of her trying on a host of outfits on Wednesday, including a hat like the one she used to wear. 

She told her followers: ‘Thoughts while making this video… Hmmmm something looks familiar …. The hat…. 

‘Wait I look like that girl in the Justin Timberlake video with that hat in Cry Me A River !!! Oh s**t that’s ME !!! I’m Britney Spears??? I guess I forget that sometimes…’

Continuing her dress-up session with a white coat, she added: ‘Oh s**t I look like a doctor in this video too though with the white coat… maybe I’M THE DOCTOR … I mean who’s playing who???

‘I mean my brother wears that kind of hat … but wait the skirt … I haven’t worn a skirt in forever !!! Am I Britney Spears ??? Psssss HMMM all this time ??? Play on my icons … play on!!!!’

Britney is currently working to end her conservatorship after 13 years and has seen significant progress after her father Jamie Spears was removed as conservator in court. 

The Toxic star vowed to continue speaking out on social media as she awaits the next hearing in November to establish whether the rule can be lifted entirely.

Britney has been using social media more than ever in recent weeks, including seemingly calling out her family for not helping her ‘get the hell out’ of the conservatorship. 

The rule had been put in place in 2008 after Britney suffered a public breakdown the year before, but has meant she has not had control over her personal or financial decisions for 13 years.
