Jessie Williams and Ellen DeGeneres are both good friends with Justin Timberlake, and on Tuesday's Ellen
, the two got into a friendly, passive-aggressive debate over who was better friends with the GRAMMY-winning singer.
"I know my friend Justin Timberlake tweeted about it," DeGeneres said.
"Yeah, yeah, he's my friend too," Williams offered, innocently enough. After getting ribbed a bit by DeGeneres, Williams added, "It wasn't a battle, I was just sharing."
However, DeGeneres couldn't let it go. "Yeah, okay, but I'm closer than him," she said, nearly under her breath. "I mean, when's the last time he texted you?"
"About three days ago," Williams said, confidently.
"Yeah, he sent me an early private link," Williams said, shrugging. "I got it this morning. But it was because he changed the password to 'I love you Jess,' so I thought that was cool."
"Yeah, no, I got it a long time ago," DeGeneres shot back, before quickly moving the interview along.
It's cute to see just how much the two stars love (and want to be loved by) the celebrated singer.
