In a statement posted to Instagram, the 40-year-old said he was "deeply sorry" for his behaviour following their split. He wrote: "I've seen the messages, tags, comments and concerns and I want to respond I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn or did not speak up for what was right.

The documentary looks at how Britney was treated by the media

"I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism."

Justin continued in his statement: "The industry is flawed. It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It's designed this way. As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn't recognise it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again."
