In ‘The Woman In Me’, Britney Spears extensively chronicles her relationship with Justin Timberlake. Spears has claimed that she was pregnant with Justin’s child, which she had to abort at his insistence. The couple broke up in 2002, and she moved into Cher’s former apartment. While no one was allowed in the apartment during her grieving period, she allowed Madonna.

Britney Spears praised Madonna, writing, “Stunningly beautiful, she exuded power and confidence. She walked straight to the window, looked out, and said, ‘Nice view.'” The ‘Vogue’ songstress introduced Spears to Kabbalah, and she got a tattoo of a Hebrew word that the Kabbalists think means ‘healing’.

Britney added, “I needed a little guidance at that time. I was confused about my life. She tried to mentor me.” Madonna suggested to Britney that she take time out for her soul, which helped her form the strength that she needed.
