LOS ANGELES, CA Wednesday Feb.21.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Justin Timberlake's former N Sync bandmate, JC Chasez, is speaking out in defense of everyone's favorite trainwreck, Britney Spears.

Chasez told MTV, "This poor girl is in the middle of a divorce! There is no denying it."

"I've known her since she was 12 years old. She is one of the sweetest people you have ever met. She has a heart of gold. A divorce at 25 is never going to be easy."

"The one person that she trusted more than anybody in the world now, is not with her. It's a transition and I genuinely feel bad for her. I mean sure she goes out with a beer and cigarette in her hand and everybody flips out. She is 25 kids! It's not illegal."

Spears has since shaved her head, got some tatt's and checked herself into rehab.
