Tearin’ up our hearts! Justin Timberlake shared an emotional moment with a young fan during his show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Sunday, Dec. 14. The interaction — which was filmed and posted to YouTube by a fellow concertgoer — brought both the 10-year-old boy and the 33-year-old pop superstar to near tears, as fans including Taylor Swift and Beyonce looked on.
As seen in the video, Timberlake took a break during the concert to acknowledge the white-suit-wearing fan, who handed the “Mirrors” singer a box containing a bow tie. “For me? How old are you, man?” Timberlake — whose wife, Jessica Biel, is pregnant with the couple’s first child — asked the kid.
Repeating the fan’s answer for the entire crowd, he said, “You’re 10, you’ve been watching me since you were 2.” As Timberlake unwrapped the gift, the boy started to cry, prompting the dad-to-be to plead with him from the stage, “Come on, man. Come on, little man!”
At that, the ‘N Sync singer choked up a little himself, telling the kid, “Hey man, greatest gift ever. Because a gentleman can never have too many bow ties. I might have to wear that on Christmas day. I love you, kiddo.” Then, walking to the back of the stage to collect himself, he quipped, “S–t, that got me.”
