Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake Car Accident Nothing But Rumors

OK kids, rest easy. A vicious rumor circulating all over the world that starry-eyed pop couple Britney Spears and 'NSync's Justin Timberlake were killed in a horrible car accident on Tuesday (June 12) prompted Jive Records to release the following statement on Wednesday (June 13):

"There is no truth to the rumor circulating around the world that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were involved in a car accident on Tuesday, June 12, in Los Angeles.

"Spears and Timberlake are in great health. Timberlake is on tour with 'NSync, and Spears is currently in the studio recording her next album. Representatives for both Spears and Timberlake are looking into the situation to determine the original source of the rumor and if legal action is appropriate."

In Pennsylvania, fans of Timberlake can see him for themselves on Wednesday when 'NSync's Pop Odyssey tour hits Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia.
