There have been persistent reports that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have broken up ever since they were initially linked romantically back in 2007.
Even after getting married and having two cute kids, the rumours kept rising. The “cheating incident” involving the pair in 2019 was especially damaging, since it sparked widespread outrage among both the media and their fans.
Is this what truly transpired between Justin Timberlake and Biel, or was their marriage in jeopardy? The article below dissects the allegations that Timberlake cheated.
Alisha Wainwright Incident
Singer Justin, who is married to actress Jessica Biel, 37, was spotted holding Alisha, 30, by the hand after she was photographed stroking his knee. The two were photographed in a pub in New Orleans at midnight while on break from filming a movie in which they play lovers.
It was said that 38-year-old Justin appeared to be intoxicated and was stumbling around. The sight of him and Alisha holding hands stunned observers, who worried about upsetting his wife of seven years and the mother of his four-year-old boy Silas.
In one scene, he took her hand and gently placed it on his knee. She reached over and began softly massaging his leg. “Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands.”
A wedding ring photo of Justin from earlier in the week suggested he was wearing it, but he was spotted without it on his night out. Timberlake went home by himself soon after the false video was shot so he could sleep off the alcohol.

The Apology from Timberlake
I can only imagine how terrifying the morning after was for the “Cry Me a River” singer. We can only assume Jessica Biel was hurt by the widespread dissemination of the cheating rumours online.
The outrage didn’t subside in the days that followed, which was a major setback. After weeks of speculation, Timberlake finally addressed the rumours of an affair between him and Wainwright by posting a screenshot from the Notes app on his Instagram feed.

The ex-NSYNC member began his email by stating his general policy of ignoring celebrity rumours and gossip. To counter this, he added, “for my family I feel it is important to address the recent rumors that are hurting the people I love.”
Timberlake then expressed regret for his “strong lapse in judgment.” He admitted that he had been drinking too much that night and had acted unreasonably for a married father of two. Timberlake, however, used the event to clarify the circumstances of his rumoured affair with Wainwright.
“A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my costar,” Timberlake told his followers. “I drank way too much that night and regret my behavior. I should have known better.”
The musician continued, “This is not the example I want to set for my son. 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.”
The media gave the famous couple some space after Timberlake’s apology and the dismissal of the infidelity claims. The news of the couple’s second child’s birth in July sparked a new round of headlines. Fans were taken aback by the revelation because the couple had done such a good job of keeping their pregnancy under wraps.
Rumors Concerning Justin and Jessica Biel
Despite the fact that they appear to have resolved all of the problems that have been brought up about them, the press continues to focus on the super-famous couple.
The tabloids keep reporting that the actress from The Sinner and her pop star husband are having marital issues, fueling speculation that the “cheating scandal” between them is real. The rumour mill just won’t stop, whether it’s false tales of a divorce or speculation that Timberlake has a “wandering eye.”
Fortunately, the couple appears to be able to put aside their differences and press teasing by working together to find a solution. The turbulence and speculations that Timberlake and Biel have had to endure seem to have only made their marriage stronger.
