Speaking to MTV News, the Limp Bizkit frontman, 38, says the relationship in question began in 2003 when he was asked to work on Britney’s In The Zone LP. Fred was instantly smitten and a romance allegedly blossomed –a claim the pop tart has feverishly denied.
Six years ago, he posted a statement on the band’s Web site, saying that Britney “happens to be a person that I [wouldn’t] have thought could make me feel this way.”
Britney responded by quickly shooting down the relationship rumors. She even appeared on MTV’s TRL and declared the two were not dating, claiming that she barely knew Fred.
“It just became a fiasco of madness,” he said. “[But] I always stay true to my heart and true to everything I did and my intentions, and I am in no way a liar.”
“I just guess at the time it was taboo for a guy like me to be associated with a gal like her.”
“I look back on it as very interesting [in terms of] how things have been sort of unraveling for her since. [But] it is what it is. I can sleep at night knowing I made decisions that I wanted to make.”
