Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are, allegedly, heading for a $449 million divorce.
Last year, reports swirled that Justin Timberlake cheated on his wife with his co-star, Alisha Wainwright. The co-stars were photographed holding hands during their night out in New Orleans.
Justin Timberlake releases statement
Shortly after their photos made headlines, Timberlake released a public apology to Biel saying that what he did was a strong lapse in judgment.
“I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people I love. A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment — but 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,” the singer posted on Instagram.
In his lengthy post, Timberlake also thanked Biel for putting up with him through such an embarrassing situation.
Jessica Biel allegedly embarrassed by her husband’s actions
A source told Us Weekly that Biel was upset and embarrassed by her husband’s behavior. The source also claimed that the Seventh Heaven star thought that Timberlake’s actions were inappropriate.
Even though months have passed since the cheating scandal broke out, some tabloids are still saying that Justin Timberlake and Biel are struggling in their marriage.
Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel allegedly having problems with trust
Earlier this year, OK! magazine Australia said that things are no longer what it once was for the couple.
“Sure, they’re putting on a united front and they’re in therapy, but Jessica no longer trusts him. Things aren’t good and no one knows if it’s going to work out,” the unnamed source said.
Prenuptial agreement rumors
The insider also claimed that the couple is in talks about possibly divorcing if they cannot move past their issues.
“They looked at their assets. Jessica’s attorney did a mock-up of what things would look like for her based on their prenup agreement. She’d be well taken care of,” the source said.
After all, Biel, allegedly, included a $750,000 cheating clause in their prenuptial agreement before she married Timberlake in 2012.
The source also claimed that Timberlake has been doing everything that he can to win back Biel’s trust. However, it seems that his efforts are no longer enough.
“He’s done this kind of thing before. Friends just don’t think it will last – Jessica doesn’t want to live in fear of him straying anymore,” the source concluded.
However, no concrete pieces of evidence can confirm that these hearsays are correct.
Justin Timberlake and Biel are still together five months after the tabloid published their dubious claim.
