- Justin Timberlake is in New Orleans filming Palmer with actress Alisha Wainwright.
- The co-stars were seen holding hands at bar on Bourbon Street.
- Timberlake issued an apology insisting nothing romantic or sexual is occurring between the two cast mates.
Married person Justin Timberlake has apologized after he was caught holding hands with not his wife.
The SexyBack singer was caught hand-holding with Alisha Wainwright, his co-star in the upcoming film Palmer. Right before Thanksgiving, the two were seen out together at a bar on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, where the movie is being shot. The pictures were initially posted by The Sun.
In addition to holding hands, there’s a picture of Wainwright’s hand gently resting on Timberlake’s knee, and one picture with her hand on his inner thigh.
Of course, the 10-time Grammy winner has been married to actress Jessica Biel since 2012. Last night, Timberlake issued a formal apology to his wife on Instagram and attempted to set any rumors about an illicit tryst to bed.
“A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my costar,” Timberlake wrote. “I drank way too much that night and regret my behavior. I should have known better.”
The 2018 Super Bowl singer continued, “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.”
Who knows exactly if anything is actually happening between the co-stars. It seems like a leap to assume that they’re sexually or romantically involved just because they held hands, even if that’s what the tabloids will have you believe. What I will say is that I was completely unaware that Timberlake was even filming a movie prior to this, so perhaps any press is good press?
