TORONTO (AP) — A musical reunion between Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears could be in the works after the singer said he's up for collaborating with his ex-girlfriend.

Spears said "Justin Timberlake is very good" last month while discussing whom she would like to work with one day. Timberlake, 35, said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that he would "be open to talking about" working on a song with Spears.

"It seems like a crazy idea, so I don't know. I have a 17-month-old," he said, laughing. "I don't know anything. But yeah, that's very flattering and could be something fun."

Spears, 34, and Timberlake were castmates on Disney's early 1990s version of the "Mickey Mouse Club." They dated for three years before breaking up in 2002.
