Ginuwine doesn’t recall the hilarious interaction that he supposedly had with Justin Timberlake in New York City, as recalled by Britney Spears in her new book, The Woman in Me.

Billboard spoke with the R&B singer this week, who told the outlet he doesn’t remember the *NSYNC singer saying to him, “'Fo' shizz. Ginuwine, what’s up homie?’"

“Nah, I don’t remember that,” Ginuwine told the outlet, laughing. “I would have probably looked at him very weird if he did that like she said,” he added. “I just don’t remember that, but I remember him [Timberlake] being a cool dude and me kicking it down there in Florida with [*NSYNC’s] producer at one time.”

In late October, around the release of The Woman in Me, a clip from Britney's audiobook—read by Michelle Williams—went viral. The snippet recounted the alleged interaction between Justin and Ginuwine.

"One day, [Justin] and I were in New York, going to parts of town that I'd never been to before," Williams read. "Walking our way was a guy wearing a huge blinged-out medallion. He was flanked by two giant security guards. [Justin] got all excited and said so loud, 'Oh yeah. Fo' shizz. Fo' shizz. Ginuwine what’s up homie?’"

She added, "After Ginuwine walked away … [Justin] wasn't even embarrassed.”

The passage also explained that *NSYNC, “were white boys, but they loved hip-hop."
