When the couple got engaged back in 2011, it was immediately after a short split. They are known for being pretty on and off and there have been rumours of divorce many times as well. However, the most serious one was in 2019 amidst Justin Timberlake’s cheating scandal.
Here’s What Happened
Justin Timberlake and his ‘Palmer’ co-star Alisha Wainwright were caught spending time together in a New Orleans bar sometime in November 2019 whilst shooting for ‘Palmer‘. They were allegedly holding hands and getting quite close physically.
Of course, the video went viral and was on every news page by the next day. It was all over the internet and the rumours did not seem to die down even after a few days’ time.
Jessica Biel, as you would expect, wasn’t too happy with what she was seeing and hearing.
Justin Timberlake’s Apology
A few days after this, Justin Timberlake took to Instagram to clear things up.
As per his statement, nothing ever actually happened between him and Alisha Wainwright. They did hold hands but that was it. After their time in the bar, Justin went home alone to rest.
He apologised for hurting his wife and putting her and his whole family in such an embarrassing position. He also said that this wasn’t the kind of example he wanted to set for his son and it wouldn’t happen again.
Jessica Biel’s Reaction
As per reports, the couple has started going to therapy. Jessica is still upset with her husband and they are working on it. While things are smooth on some days, they go through rocky phases too, like every other couple.
Jessica did not make any public statement regarding this.
Was Jessica Pregnant With Their Second Child During This Whole Scandal?
When the couple announced the birth of their second child, Phineas Timberlake, back in July 2020, these rumours came back. People calculated the time span and figured out that Jessica must have been pregnant with their second child when this incident took place.
This would surely have been added pressure and way too much stress to handle for a pregnant woman.
Considering this, it is understandable that she is taking her own time to forgive Justin.
The couple also has another son named Silas Randall Timberlake.
Rumours Of A Split Between The Couple
Quarantine was a terrible time for the whole world. Couples broke up, lives were lost and the whole world almost came to a standstill. Amidst this, there were rumours that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were also on the verge of a split. They had been fighting a lot and Justin’s past mistakes were brought up apparently, including this episode of supposed infidelity. All this leads us to believe that he may not have been forgiven by his wife just yet, however, they are the only ones who know the truth.
