Britney Spears has lashed out at ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake's CRY ME A RIVER VIDEO again, branding him "desperate" for using their personal life to sell his records.

The sexy singer was furious when she saw the promo, which featured a blonde Britney look-a-like and suggested she'd cheated on her lover, played by Justin.

And even though he'd called and warned her about it beforehand, the BOYS singer was still shocked when she saw quite how intense it was.

She admits, "The record label called me and said, 'If you want to change this, you can.' I thought, 'Hey, it's your video.' I hadn't seen it.

"Then it came out. I said, 'I should have freaking said no to this s***.'

"I think it looks like such a desperate attempt, personally. But that was a great way to sell the record. He's a smart guy."
