Though a viral video taken backstage at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards Tuesday night appeared to show the pair apparently in the midst of a heated exchange, their brief chat was anything but angry.
In the clip, Megan is seen getting her hair touched up backstage when Timberlake and his *NSYNC bandmates walk by. As they pass, Megan waves an enthusiastic finger at the star, and he smiles as he walks away.
The insider says that what Megan was actually saying was that she’d like to hang out with Timberlake in a less chaotic setting.
“He said, ‘It’s so nice to meet you,’ and she said, ‘No, no, this don’t count, this don’t count. We gotta meet proper,’” the source says.
A second source close to the situation adds that there was certainly no tension between the two.
“Meg loves Justin,” the source says.
