Thursday night, Jamie Lynn Spears decided to send a tweet to Justin Timberlake, reminiscing about the times they spent together when the "Suit and Tie" singer was dating Jamie Lynn's sister, Britney.

It is strange to think that, despite Justin being married to Jessica Biel and Britney in a new relationship with David Lucado, there are definitely still some people out there that have strong opinions about the former couple's romance.
Neither Justin Timberlake nor Britney Spears have responded in any way to Jamie Lynn's tweets. Justine was however on his account around the same time as the original post, wishing his pal Pharrell Williams a happy birthday.
