Britney Spears tells Diane Sawyer she can “kiss [her] white ass,” finally calling the news anchor out for bringing her to tears in a 2003 sit-down interview.
“Do we dare forget the Diane Sawyer interview in my apartment almost 20 years ago?” Spears — who had just split from Justin Timberlake at the time — wrote in a since-deleted post shared to Instagram late Monday. “What was with the ‘You’re in the wrong’ approach?? Geeze… and making me cry???”
Spears, 40, continued on, explaining that she “never spoke to anyone” at the time she lived in that New York City apartment.
“My manager put that woman in my home and made me talk to her on national television,” she claimed. “She asked if I had a shopping problem!!! When did I have a shopping problem?”
Spears’ interview with Sawyer, which originally aired on ABC’s “Primetime Thursday,” resurfaced back in February, as clips were featured in “The New York Times Presents Framing Britney Spears” documentary.
Sawyer, 75, at one point asked Spears, “Justin has gone on television and pretty much said you broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain, so much suffering. What did you do?”
Sawyer also alluded that Spears was setting a bad example for children at the time, and “upsetting a lot of mothers in this country.”

Meanwhile, in other various interviews conducted in the ’90s and ’00s, Timberlake, 40, was seemingly idolized after his 2002 split from Spears, as the controversial “Framing Britney Spears” doc explored.
“Something I never shared when I had that breakup years ago was that I couldn’t talk afterward,” Spears admitted in her latest Instagram post. “I was in shock… pretty lame of my dad [Jamie] and three men to show up at my door when I could hardly speak… two days later, they put Diane Sawyer in my living room… they forced me to talk!”
