Singer says she's a great person

Justin Timberlake has revealed that he still loves teenage sweetheart Britney Spears.

The star, who split with Brit in 2002, appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show last night and admitted that there are no bad feelings between them – but they don’t stay in touch.

‘I haven’t spoke to her in years,’ he tells Oprah.

‘I mean, there is no ill will – I have nothing but love for her.’

The 26-year-old – who rarely talks about his romance with the troubled star – says that being famous took its toll on their relationship.

‘I think she’s a great person,’ says Justin, ‘I don’t know her as well as I did. What I do know about her is that she has a huge heart.’
