Justin Timberlake Spotted Holding Hands With Woman Who Isn’t Jessica Biel
Wait, what is happening?! Over the weekend of Nov. 22, Justin Timberlake was allegedly seen being intimate with a woman who is not his wife, Jessica Biel. He reportedly went out with his Palmer co-star, Alisha Wainwright, and things looked seriously flirty.
Obviously, this raises questions. Like, who is Wainwright exactly? Is there something going on between her and Timberlake? And what has Biel had to say about this??
Inside Justin Timberlake and Alisha Wainwright’s night out
On Nov. 23, photos surfaced of the entertainers getting close. According to The Sun, they were spotted taking a break from filming Palmer, in which they play lovers, and hitting a New Orleans bar.
There, Wainwright reportedly touched Timberlake’s knee, and they held hands. As seen in photos, Timberlake did not appear to have his wedding ring on. However, The Sun reports that he’d worn it earlier in the week.
“They were smiling and laughing,” a source told The Sun. “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.”
You can see photos and a video of them on The Sun.
Wainwright is an actress who is most known for her role in Netflix’s Raising Dion, in which she stars alongside Michael B. Jordan. She’s also appeared in productions such as Criminal Minds and Switched at Birth.
Sources say it’s not what it looks like
Multiple insiders have since claimed that the outing was truly innocent.
“It’s a balcony with a group of people and it was definitely nothing happening,” one source told People. “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.”
Wainwright’s representative also pushed back on the romance speculation, adding, “The video may look a way, but literally it was nothing. It was some friends, members of the team, crew and people like that. They all know each other and were hanging. Like come on, they’re on an open balcony in New Orleans and he’s famous. It was nothing.”
A source added to E! News that “there is absolutely nothing going on between them.”
“They were out with all the cast, crew, makeup artists, and everyone was just hanging out in a social setting,” the insider continued. “They are just working together. No validity to any other rumor other than that they are filming together.”
For what it’s worth, other people can be seen standing near Timberlake and Wainwright. But Showbiz CheatSheet cannot identify them and definitely say whether they are cast and crew members.
Has Jessica Biel commented at all?
As of writing, Biel has not addressed the outing. But things seemed fine between them a few weeks ago.
For Halloween 2019, Biel dressed up as Timberlake back in his *NSYNC days, complete with a blonde, curly wig and a shiny jumpsuit. To compliment her costume, the “Suit & Tie” singer dressed as her microphone.
Biel and Timberlake married in 2012 following a five-year relationship. They share one child, a son named Silas Randall, who was born in 2015.
