Justin Timberlake Apologizes to Jessica Biel After “Strong Lapse in Judgment”

On Nov. 23, The Sun posted photos and a video of Justin Timberlake holding hands with his Palmer costar Alisha Wainwright during a night out in New Orleans, and now, the 38-year-old singer and actor is setting the record straight. On Wednesday, Justin publicly apologized to his wife, Links”>Jessica Biel, and his family for his “strong lapse in judgment.” He also maintained that he and Alisha are just working on a movie together and there is nothing romantic going on between them.

“Let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better,” Justin wrote. “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.”

Alisha’s rep also previously denied the speculation in a statement, saying, “There is no validity to this speculation. They are currently working on a project together. Members of the cast and crew were all together.”

Justin and Jessica tied the knot in Italy back in 2012, and they’re parents to 4-year-old son Silas.
