Justin Timberlake stopped his media tour to spend time with a special fan: a 13-year-old brain surgery survivor.
JT was being rushed through an NYC building on his way into a live radio interview Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Tina DiLascio — who told Justin her daughter Giana is a “Make-a-Wish” kid who underwent brain surgery last year to fix a serious blockage in her pituitary gland.
Justin was so impressed — he stopped in his tracks — and asked if he could meet Giana, who was waiting outside the building with her brother. We’re told JT waited patiently as Tina grabbed Giana … brought her inside … and introduced the two.
Tina tells TMZ … Giana and Justin chatted for several minutes. JT asked if she watched the VMAs and she lit up, telling Justin he’s “The next Michael Jackson” … to which JT bowed his head and said, “Thank you.”
Giana asked if the she could take a pic with Justin, who agreed … but only under one condition — “Only if you make it your screen saver!”
If you’re wondering, the pic is definitely Gina’s screensaver.
