Last week, we reported about the scandal that broke out when Justin Timberlake was seen being overly cozy with Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright.
There is a classic saying that ‘A Picture Paints a Thousand Words’ and now the former NSYNC leading man is painting his apology.
Timberlake went on to his Instagram to post a long, thought-out statement and said that he did not cheat on his wife of seven years, Jessica Biel with Wainwright and apologized for his behavior. The actor-singer opened stated that he tries to stay away from gossip but feels the need to address the current rumors surrounding him and his co-star that are apparently hurting the people that he loves.
Jessica Biel, Timberlake’s wife has yet to address the situation and has not posted anything on social media after the news broke out. Wainwright, on the other hand, has immediately shot down the rumors that there was some funny business between her and Timberlake.
Entertainment Tonight reported that Wainwright’s representative told them that there was zero validity to the ongoing rumors about their alleged fun time and has not posted anything on social media as well.
Timberlake and Wainwright are both on-location in New Orleans shooting for their upcoming film, Palmer. Before Thanksgiving, the cast and crew were seen having a good time at the balcony of a local bar in the popular Bourbon Street. People took photos and videos of an obviously drunk Timberlake who got a little bit intimate with his Palmer co-star with his wedding ring, not insight. Someone who was there that night told media outlets that at one point, the actor grabbed Wainwright’s hand and placed it on his knee and the actress went on the rub his leg.
The video left a shocking and sour taste in everyone’s mouth on Twitter. A lot of people have chimed in again and has roasted the actor for apparently being irresponsible. Netizens went on saying things from Timberlake not taking responsibility for his actions and blaming alcohol to not believing the actor’s statement that he has never been unfaithful to his wife. Oh, and lots of gifs and memes. Lots.
Some people have been fanning the flames of intrigue though, as other news outlets have pointed out that during her appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden last month, people have pointed out that she too was not wearing her wedding ring in her interview.
Unless some huge and tangible evidence drops, all we can do is speculate. And it seemed that there wasn’t any trouble in paradise prior to the incident with Timberlake and Biel posting on social media and appearing on late-night talk shows together.
