The nineties produced a treasure trove of pop culture gems. There were Nirvana, MC Hammer, reality TV, Brit Pop, and the resurgence of boy and girl bands. Regarding the latter, two of the decade’s biggest names were The Spice Girls and N’Sync. Given their popularity and touring schedules, it was just a matter of time until they collided. That happened at an airport in 1996; luckily, Lance Bass captured the moment on camera.
Per E!, the singer posted the flashback pic, admitting that even though they’d both just released their first singles (“Wannabe” and “I Want You Back”), none of their fellow passengers gave them a second glance. But Justin Timberlake couldn’t keep his eyes off one of the girls, and the two became one during a steamy fling. So, who was the Brit bandmate that spiced up Timberlake’s life? None other than Baby Spice, real name Emma Bunton.
According to Vulture, Timberlake fessed up to hooking up with one of the Spice Girls during a game of “Never Have I Ever” on “Ellen” in 2018. Still, Timberlake wouldn’t spill the name tea no matter how hard DeGeneres pressed. Thankfully, Baby Spice wasn’t so coy. She admitted to enjoying an encounter with him during an episode of “The Jonathon Ross Show.” He asked a Bunton about her little zig-a-zig-ah with the boy bander. “We hung out and partied a bit,” she admitted, giggling. “He was very sweet.”
