Justin Timberlake credits his mother for "everything" he is.

The 'Suit and Tie' hitmaker paid a touching tribute to his "first partner in crime" Lynn Harless on Instagram to celebrate his mom's birthday yesterday (20.01.15).

Alongside an old picture of the pair when he was a toddler, he wrote: "Happy Bday to my first partner in crime and the FIRST QUEEN OF THE HOUSE. We have been through so much together and I love you more than words can begin to describe.

"Everything I am and continue to strive to be is because of you. I love you, Momma! #UandMeVsAnybody.(sic)"

The 33-year-old star - who is expecting his first child with wife Jessica Biel - has previously described Lynn as his "best friend" and admitted he had a hard time finding the right woman for him because no one he had dated was as "good" as his mother.

Speaking before he began dating Jessica, he said: "We have a very special relationship. She's been my best friend since I figured out who I wanted to be.

"She's always been there beside me, and I think that's part of my problem with girls. You keep searching for somebody as good as your mother, and that's a losing battle."
