While PDA is supposed to be a “public display of affection,” Justin Timberlake probably should have rethought this when he was holding hands with someone other than his wife and mother of his child, Jessica Biel.
It was the handhold seen round the world, and clearly nobody is going to let the former NSYNC singer forget it.
Justin was seen looking completely drunk while holding hands and caressing the thigh of his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright. All this happened on a balcony in New Orleans in plain sight.
Things got so bad, he was forced to make a public apology to his wife on Instagram, which is basically our generation’s equivalent of Bill Clinton’s “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” speech.
Justin wrote in a post, “I stay away from gossip as much as I can.” Well, of course you do, and your cheating is the fault of the media right?
He continued, “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and regret my behavior. I should have known better.”
Well, that is the understatement of the century.
A source told Us Weekly, “Sometimes they’ll have a great day together and other days they argue.
Apparently, Justin has been pulling out all the stops to win back his wife’s affection. Possibly, he should have been doing this long before any cheating scandal broke out.
A source recently told Life & Style Weekly that Justin has been taking Jessica out for dinner dates, trying to wine and dine her into happiness once more.
The source said they recently went for dinner at Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, and claimed, “Justin knows he’s still got a lot of work to do.”
The source continued, “Justin pulled out all the stops, though, reserving the best table at one of their favorite restaurants. He hoped being there would bring back fond memories.”
Jessica clearly prefers actions over words, though whether or not those actions are working remains to be seen. Will a few rounds of couples therapy do the trick?
A source told Us Weekly that he’s trying to prove himself in the marriage, saying, “Justin knows exactly what Jessica wants to hear to relieve any stress. They believe it’s constructive for their relationship, he is trying his hardest to prove himself.”
While Jessica is reportedly trying to let it go, seeing your husband in pictures, getting intimate with another woman is sure to leave a scar on any woman’s psyche.
Will all the dinner dates and couple’s therapy work? Maybe so, or we’ll see a divorce announcement in their future.
