Earlier this week, Justin Timberlake sparked headlines when he was photographed holding hands with Alisha Wainwright, his co-star in the new movie they’re working on, Palmer. The pair was spotted hanging out together by the paparazzi, and people noticed right away that Wainwright didn’t look like his wife at all.
As it was previously reported, the actress and pop-star were seen walking out of a New Orleans bar in Louisiana during the filming of their upcoming movie. The cast and crew enjoyed a night out on the town and had a few drinks.
When the photos hit the mainstream press, Justin Timberlake, apparently, was overwhelmed with the backlash that he had to respond in a statement, which included an apology to his wife, Jessica Biel. Justin said in his statement that nothing happened between himself and Wainwright. He described it as a temporary “lapse in judgment.”
In a video of the incident, Justin Timberlake reportedly appeared quite intoxicated. Even though many people are supposedly starting to forgive Mr. Timberlake already, other women on social media are less forgiving for Alisha’s behavior.
One such tweet is an example of the kind of vitriol the Hollywood actress has since received.

While the reason for her sudden bout of attention is dubious, at best, there’s no question the internet is suddenly filled with interest in Alisha Wainwright. Even the Cosmopolitan began gathering information and writing extensive articles about the star’s background.
According to Cosmopolitan, Wainwright was born in the summer of 1989 in Florida. Initially, before getting into performing, the actress was into science rather than acting. The star moved to Panama after studying botany for the Smithsonian.
During a conversation with W Magazine, Alisha described the difficulties in the scientific field, including the fact departments are often competing for the same pot of money for their research. The star said she couldn’t find the money to focus on her “anthropological-botanical focus.”
Consequently, she had to make her studies far broader, and frankly, she just wasn’t interested in doing so. Additionally, the actress shared that her guiding light in the world was her mother.
