Justin Timberlake called out after leaving flirty comment on Jessica Biel's Instagram video
Earlier this month, Justin Timberlake finally addressed the photos which emerged of him holding hands with co-star Alisha Wainwright in November. For those who aren't aware, the 38-year-old performer and 30-year-old Wainwright were spotted holding hands at a bar in New Orleans in photos obtained by The Sun.
The photos also showed how Wainright, who starred alongside the singer and occasional actor in the movie Palmer, had placed her hand on Timberlake's knee.
The Can't Stop The Feeling! singer, who is married to actress Jessica Biel, took to Instagram on Wednesday, writing:
“I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people I love. A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment -- but let me be clear -- nothing happened between me and my co-star. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it."
And nearly two weeks on from Timberlake's public apology, it seems that his fans have not yet put the episode behind them.
Wendy Williams recently spoke out about how she thinks Jessica Biel forced Justin to apologize:
In fact, yesterday his wife Jessica Biel shared a sponsored post on her Instagram page, and Timberlake responded with a heart-eyes emoji, followed by a heart emoji and another heart-eyes emoji.
But what he probably wasn't expecting was for his fans (read: skeptics) to respond with eye-roll emojis and just general negativity.
A few commented on Timberlake still being in the "doghouse" and one person wrote, "you just look more and more guilty."
Remember the kid who won the respect of the whole world when he took a selfie with Justin Timberlake during last year's Super Bowl LII halftime show:
In spite of the reaction from fans, a source has confirmed to People that Biel "is standing by" her husband.
"Obviously Justin drank too much this time, but Jessica believes he didn’t cheat on her," the insider claims. "What’s most important to her in life is her family and being the best mom to Silas. She’ll never break up her family over something like this."
