Megan Thee Stallion has spoken out about what really happened between her and Justin Timberlake at the MTV VMAs after the pair appeared to have words backstage.

As if NSYNC's surprise reunion wasn't enough of a talking point, MTV's backstage cameras apparently captured a heated interaction between Justin and Megan, too.

In the clip, the band is seen walking past Megan in a crowded corridor, before the rapper begins pointing and gesticulating wildly, and appears to shout something at the musicians.

See the footage below:

While many assumed that Megan and Justin were having an argument based on the footage, she later took to social media to clear up exactly what was going on in the clip.

Sharing a clip of her and Justin later in the night, she made it very clear that there was definitely no beef between them, despite how it appeared on camera.

She shared a video clip of the two of them smiling as she once again gesticulated with her finger pointed, telling her followers: "I just talk with my hands lol see ya next time @Justin Timberlake."

Megan also elaborated on what she was saying to Justin while getting her hair touched up by stylist Kellon Deryck, telling Entertainment Tonight: "Kellon is doing my hair and I got my in-ears in and I'm telling Kellon I'm already nervous, just stop touching on me.

"Then Justin Timberlake walks by, he's like, 'It's nice to meet you,' [and] I was like, 'No, no, first of all, I can't hear you so, no. Take it back, this is not how I'm gonna meet Justin Timberlake, OK?'

"And JC was back there looking cute! I said, 'Hold on, y'all need to relax. Wait until I get off stage and then Ima be ready for y'all.'"

Megan added that both she and Justin found it absolutely hilarious that people thought they had bad blood, adding: "We were really crying-laughing because it was like, in what world is Megan Thee Stallion beefed out on Justin Timberlake? I'm in the back tussling with NSYNC? That sounds crazy!"

She explained: "I just I thought it was so funny because I talk with my hands and my nails are so long so I know this looks crazy, like you almost thought I was coming for you and I was coming for him. But, yeah this is just how I talk."

The beef was in fact so non-existent, Megan even joked: "We're both Aquarius, I was like, 'We are meant to be besties!' It was meant to be."

The best friendships do start with an incredible story - and this has to be one of the funniest, so we have no doubt these two will be pals for life after this.
