Stories constantly do the rounds that Justin Timberlake got in touch with Britney Spears to offer his support during her personal problems.
In fact, nothing could be further from the truth, he tells Vanity Fair.
"I wish her the best - that goes without saying (but) we haven't spoken in nine or 10 years," said the pop star-turned-actor.
He said that he was a very different person during their romance, telling the magazine:
"We were two birds of the same feather - small-town kids, doing the same thing.
"But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn't make any sense.
"I was a totally different person. I just don't think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence.
In the interview he also describes actress Jessica Biel as still "the single-handedly most significant person in my life".
Their relationship ended in March.
