The Hills alum Audrina Patridge takes aim at ‘rude diva’ Justin Timberlake for slighting her at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards, in her new memoir
Audrina Patridge used her forthcoming memoir Choices: To the Hills and Back Again as an opportunity to walk down memory lane.
In her debut book the 37-year-old reality star dished on Justin Timberlake’s ‘rude, diva behavior’ at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards.
She explained that the 41-year-old music artist refused to take an award she presented to him with then-costars Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port.

As the TV personality prepared to share the anecdote she gave context as she said, ‘We were invited to so many awards shows, and even asked to present a few times.’
Then she continued, ‘I’ll never forget the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards, in particular. Lauren, Whitney and I were onstage to present the award for Male Artist of the Year.’
While her counterparts were ‘beyond excited’ that the former Mickey Mouse Musketeer had won, she said she ‘couldn’t have cared less.’
‘And then Justin wouldn’t even come up to us and accept the award in front of a packed house! Chris Brown came up onstage with him, took the award from us himself, and then presented it to Justin as we backed off to the side,’ she wrote.

It was actually Timberlake’s longtime collaborator and producer Timbaland who took the statue from them, although JT mentioned Chris Brown in his acceptance speech.
Audrina penned that she was ‘annoyed’ by Justin’s behavior, but her friends were ‘devastated.’
‘As if that wasn’t bad enough, Justin took center stage and said to the crowd, “MTV, play more d**n videos. We don’t want to see The Simpsons or reality television,”‘ Patridge added.
She called the pop star’s statements a ‘personal attack’ and said the women were ‘humiliated.’

Conrad previously commented on the ordeal, telling Us Weekly in 2014, ‘We were so excited, and he wouldn’t even take the award from us.’
The former MTV personality said that Timberlake was her childhood crush as she remembered, ‘Then he went up to the microphone and insulted reality television on MTV.
‘We were standing up there smiling, and I felt so stupid,’ the fashion designer recalled.
