An 88-year-old Justin Timberlake fan has finally had the chance to meet her hero, after the former N-Sync star invited her backstage at a recent show.
Bette Maloney, or ‘Nammie’ as she is known, was surprised by her family last Easter after they bought tickets to the star’s concert in Orlando, Florida.
But a much bigger surprise was in store at the concert, with photos showing Nammie smiling backstage with Timberlake.
“She was so excited,” Maloney’s daughter Beth Watson told US Media.

He’s a class act, y’all. Humbled by and beyond grateful for all the love shown to sweet Nammie tonight. @justintimberlake was kind, lovely and wayyyyyy cute in person. Best night ever, and FOR SURE best concert we’ve ever seen. // Can’t say nicer things about the team at @amwaycenter. We were taken care of by Tonya, Alex and Cat (on her first night as an intern!) and later by Jacoby, all of whom couldn’t have been more delightful. Tonight also wouldn’t have been the night it was without Angela and Johnny from Wright Entertainment Group. B E Y O N D grateful. #motwtour #manofthewoods
“She did have a few things to say planned, and she brought Justin’s son a gift to give to him.”
Maloney previously described Timberlake as “very talented”.
“I think he’s a very, very nice young man and he’s so talented”, she said.
“He writes, sings, dances, acts, performs. And he’s married and has a baby. He seems to be pretty settled.”
During the concert, Timberlake also offered a shoutout to Maloney.
The concert came as part of Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods tour, which hits the UK later this year.
He also performed at the Super Bowl half time show, with NME describing the performance as “underwhelming”.
