Cameron Diaz allegedly told mag staffer: ‘I hope you get cancer’

“How does it feel” to be smashed into a memoir?

Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner has seemingly disapproved of Cameron Diaz in his upcoming book “Like a Rolling Stone.”

Wenner, who also owned Us Weekly, writes in his book that in the mid-2000s, the celeb-heavy magazine was part of the zeitgeist. He goes on to say that one of the magazine’s first firsts was a paparazzi photo of “an actress” cuddling Justin Timberlake on a surfboard.

While Wenner doesn’t specifically mention Diaz by name, his writing seems to imply that he’s referring to the “Charlie’s Angels” actress as she was famously photographed having a sweet kiss with Timberlake while the two were vacationing in Hawaii in 2006. He describes the unnamed actress as “unpleasant to deal with,” this person even told one of the magazine’s researchers at the time: “I hope you get cancer.”

Diaz, 50, and the “NSYNC” alum, 41, were a Hollywood A-list couple. They first met in 2003 at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, when actress Timberlake presented the “Best Burp” award.

The two clicked and started dating, but eventually broke up in early 2007.

Though the couple claimed the split was amicable, they made headlines weeks later when Diaz reportedly approached Timberlake — who was chatting with his now-wife, Jessica Biel — at a Golden Globes afterparty and had an intense conversation with him. .

The “Cry Me a River” singer later referenced the evening in his 2018 memoir.

“Then came the Golden Globes, and then we planned to see each other,” he wrote in the book, referring to the desire to be with Biel.

“We were both still seeing other people, to protect ourselves from injury, to really put ourselves out there. It took both of us some effort to admit to ourselves that we were really, really into each other.”

Timberlake married Biel in 2012 and shares two children: sons Silas, 7, and Phineas, 2. Meanwhile, in 2015, Diaz said “I do” to Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden. The two welcomed a baby girl, Raddix, via surrogate in December 2019.
