FINALLY. At long last, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have finally split up. God knows how many times JT has screwed around on Jessica, and with God knows how many women. He tried to get with Mila Kunis, who wasn’t having it, but there was Olivia Munn and various backup dancers, and Amanda Seyfried certainly seemed up for it. TMZ’s source says that the breakup was a “pretty mutual decision … and both parties still ‘love and respect each other.’” Us Weekly’s source says: “It was mutual. Jessica is doing well.” Considering Jessica and JT released a JOINT statement, I don’t think we’re in for another debacle where, say, Us Weekly releases a story calling Jessica psycho and clingy and JT a cheater, only to have them still stay together.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are no longer a couple.
The two decided to end their relationship recently and “there are no hard feelings,” a source tells PEOPLE exclusively. “It was completely mutual and they both decided it was time to move on.”
The source adds that Biel is keeping her house in L.A. and she and Timberlake, who started dating in 2007, will remain friends.
Reps for the couple released a statement Thursday, confirming the split: “Addressing the media speculation regarding Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s relationship, we are confirming that they mutually have decided to part ways. The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.”
Timberlake, 30, and Biel, 29, were spotted together looking cozy as recently as the Vanity Fair post-Oscars party on Feb. 27.
So, JT is finally officially single again. You know Olivia Munn is probably already sexting him, thinking that she’s next in line to be his girlfriend. That being said, I doubt JT will go with Olivia for anything more than a fling – he wants a movie star. He’ll try for Mila Kunis again, especially given that they’re both single now. Don’t do it, Mila!
As for Jessica… well… I’m about to say something that may disturb some of you. But I’ve always felt that women like Jessica Biel and her BFF, Jennifer Garner, are the kind of women who won’t let their current partner go without a jumpoff in place. I think that’s why Garner hasn’t left Affleck – she hasn’t found his replacement yet. And it wouldn’t surprise me at all if, in a few weeks time, we start hearing rumors about Jessica with some dude, someone that she had waiting in the wings.
