That’s because backstage video of the event showed the two performers having an animated conversation after Timberlake had reunited onstage with his *NSYNC bandmates. Megan, meanwhile, was getting ready for her performance with Cardi B.
Although the volume isn’t great in the video below, it appears that Timberlake said something that angered Megan.
One person noted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that if you look at the bottom of the screen, it appears as if Timberlake reached out to touch Megan.
Although many people on social media assumed there was a quarrel, Entertainment Tonight reported that it was apparently the opposite.
Citing unnamed sources, ET said that Timberlake told Megan, “It’s so nice to meet you,” and she responded, “No, no, this don’t count, this don’t count, we gotta meet proper.”
Another source told ET that Megan is a fan of Timberlake and that “it was their first time meeting and she was excited.’”
