As you may know, after he was spotted not wearing his wedding ring and holding hands with his ‘Palmer’ co-star Alisha Wainwright late last month, Justin Timberlake took to his platform to address the scandal and apologize to his wife, Jessica Biel! Now, one insider report claims to know the real reason why the singer decided to issue that apology.
A source shared via HollywoodLife that ‘Justin felt that making amends publicly was the right thing to do. Justin was always taught that when you make a mistake you admit it and since his mistake was so public it warranted a public apology. That was all from the heart, Justin’s very upset with himself and he’s taking every step he can to fix this misunderstanding. Jessica is his world, as his family, he will make it right and this was the first step.’
His lengthy letter was shared more than a week after footage as well as various pictures of him packing the PDA with his co-star off-screen surfaced.
Timberlake and Wainwright were at the Absinthe House bar in New Orleans late at night on November 21 when they were caught holding hands.
Not only that but in some clips, Justin, who was visibly drunk, can be seen resting his arm around Alisha’s waist.
The footage also shows the woman with a hand on his knee at some point, looking close and comfortable together.
Soon after all this made its way to social media, people started speculating that something was going on between the on-screen love interests.
On his IG account, Justin posted: ‘A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse of judgment – but let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my costar. I apologize to my amazing wife and my family for putting them through an embarrassing situation, and I’m focused on being the best husband and father I can be.’
He went on to explain that he drank too much and that he regretted his behavior.
‘This isn’t the example I want to set for my son,’ he also stressed in the letter.
