Is Justin Timberlake’s Marriage in danger?

Many people have asked that question this week following a recent scandal involving the singer. Last week, Timberlake was seen holding hands with his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright.

As this was not his wife, Jessica Biel, fans were outraged. Many are now questioning whether Justin Timberlake’s marriage is over. Early reports suggest that is not the case. While Biel is reportedly “uncomfortable” with the incident, it is unlikely to push the couple apart.

On Nov. 23, The Sun newspaper reported Timberlake and Wainwright were holding hands at a New Orleans bar.

More damaging for Justin Timberlake’s marriage was the fact he was not wearing his wedding ring. A source told The Sun that Timberlake and Wainwright looked close and were laughing together.

“At one stage he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee. She then gently started stroking his leg. Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands.”

An innocent moment in Justin Timberlake’s marriage

Timberlake’s team quickly went into damage limitation mode and released a statement through a “source” to People magazine. According to the source, the situation was “innocent”.

“It’s a balcony with a group of people and it was definitely nothing happening. He’s down there shooting [his film] Palmer, they’re starring in the movie together and they’re cool, and everybody was just hanging out.”

Expanding on the encounter, a source told E! News that “there is absolutely nothing going on between them.”

In another E! News report, a separate source close to Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel said the actress was not happy with the situation. Indeed, Biel apparently views the incident as “inappropriate”.

“They are downplaying everything and trying to laugh it off as nothing. But it was definitely inappropriate and something that would make any wife uncomfortable,” the insider explained. “He had too much to drink and got carried away.”
