Us Weekly: Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake are engaged, officially

Well, it happened. There were reports just before Christmas that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake might have gotten engaged while they were spending their holiday together in Wyoming. There were rumors on Twitter, and all of that good stuff. Now Us Weekly confirms that Biel and Timberlake are definitely official. Sidenote: I wonder what kind of deal Biel’s publicist has with Us Weekly?

After a series of breakups and makeups, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have finally decided to get married!

Several insiders tell the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday) that the couple of four and a half years became engaged in late December.

Timberlake, a six-time Grammy winner, popped the question to Biel, 29, in the mountains of Jackson, Wyoming.

“Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place,” one insider explains.

After a brief three-month split in 2011, Biel made it clear that she wanted to spend her life with Timberlake, 30. “When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step.”

Another Timberlake insider adds that he’s “never been happier” with the New Year’s Eve actress. “He knew it was the right time to propose.”

[From Us Weekly]

I don’t even know. I mean, congratulations to the happy couple. I would really, really love to know what the proposal was like. Did Biel demand a certain kind of proposal? Or did it just come out of a “Where are we now, what is the next step in our relationship” conversation? Did Justin have a ring ready? I’d also like to know how all of this works – Justin has cheated on Jessica before, and their relationship has always been on-again, off-again. Are they both settling? Why do they feel the need to make this disaster official? I still don’t understand. Meh.

    I’ll believe it when they actually walk down the aisle. I bet they never make it. I don’t like either of them.

  2. Marjalane says:

    Sounds like a PR team decided it was time for Timberdork to look like a grown up by getting married. I doubt if marriage to J.B. will end his cattin’ around.

  3. Jackson says:

    Congratulations? She’s boring and irrelevant and he’s a whiney douche. Good luck with this.

  4. Liz says:

    I don’t get these two as a couple. I just don’t see what either of them gets from it.

    “On-again, off-again” implies that there’s something – some little spark – there that keeps dragging them back again. I’m not seeing it.

    I don’t see why Timberlake doesn’t just sleep around as a single guy like he clearly wants to do. (But then again, I also don’t see why he doesn’t just go back to music and stop being an ack-tore. In an industry with 90%+ unemployment, people must be spitting nails that *he’s* the one getting those gigs.)

    I don’t see why Biel…is there at all. I can’t see how he’s helping her career, and it’s not like she’d be alone for long if she walked.

    I see no chemistry, no friendship, not even fidelity. I seriously cannot understand those two. I don’t see them marrying, but then I never saw them as a real couple, so they probably will.

  5. RocketMerry says:

    Maybe she thinks he’ll change everything about his cheating ways when a ring will be on his pretty finger. Because, you know, men do that a lot.

    On another note, could be all publicity. Who knows.

  6. Pat says:

    I will believe it when I see it in People – and we all know that if they were sure of this and had the OK of the couple it would be the cover story. I just don’t understand how you guys here at this site fall for the tabloids like you do. You actually believe them! Crazy

  7. grazi says:

    I still think she could do so much better. Whatever she is, JT is much much worse. I dont think I ever disliked so much someone I never even met!

  8. lisa says:

    Well is this confirmed.. I know the rumors were out a week or so.

    I don’t see it on People.com..but they are not the go to like they use to be. People is more of a tabloid now. I use to trust them but now anymore.

    (this is going to be an interesting thread)

  9. GiGi says:

    I know this isn’t the popular opinion, and while I don’t really care for either of them on their own, I kind of like them together. *waits for reprimand*

  10. carrie says:

    Cameron Diaz probably is crying

    and congrats!

  11. The Original Mia says:

    She’s a doormat & he’s a douche. Congrats!

  12. ahoyhoy says:

    There is just no heat from these two. Feels like an arrangement.

    Also, I truly wonder what it feels like to kiss those over-filled lips. They look hard as a rock.

  13. Girl says:

    I’m loving that pointy boob pic.

  14. Nanz says:

    This has disaster written all over it. I don’t see what they gain individually by marrying each other. If they both want better acting careers, don’t they need to date/marry higher listed actors than themselves?

  15. Jessica says:

    This is a clear PR stunt. They aren’t getting married they’re getting magazine covers! There was a blind item recently about and upcoming, pre-arranged (by two management teams) engagement announcement. And here it is.

    • jess says:

      I was about to post the same thing about the blind item. The blind item also said they would break up at the end of the year. Justin is the only thing that is keeping Jessica relevant, so justin probably went along with it because he felt guilty for cheating on her.

  16. Bermuda Blues says:

    I bet the engagement was discussed when they got back together, just like Good Prince William & his Waity Bride. Timberlake dumped Biel, just like William did, and then realized there weren’t acutally too many A-list actresses willing to bone him and look the other way while he was on tour. Suddenly, Biel had the upper hand and used it to seal the deal.

    Plus, Justin is now in his 30s. He’s a momma’s boy. Momma probably said, “I want grandbabies” and Justin looked around and saw all his peers were having children and building families and wanted that too.

    • Bubulle says:

      I think you nailed it Bermuda.

      • Bermuda Blues says:

        Thank you both.

        I doubt the marriage is a PR stunt. But it IS a pragmatic marriage. They both understand what they get out of it, they enjoy each others company, they have similar interests, similar celebrity lifestyles, and they want to have children. The mutual benefit for their public images is only peripherally an advantage.

        But watch Biel will transition quickly into Jen Garner with babies and sneakers and photo ops aroud LA. They’ll probably become the best of Mom friends.

    • TG says:

      god Bermuda you have me cracking up over here. I would like to go one further though and say there probably weren’t any A List actresses willing to have sex with him period. Never mind the looking the other way part. LOL I hate momma’s boys and mommas girls. You know who would be perfect for this douche? Kim Kartrashian. Neither one of them can make a decision without their mom.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @Bermuda, I think it’s also possible that she may have given him an ultimatum (marriage or I’m leaving) and he called her bluff. He figured out he couldn’t pull as much “tail” as he thought he could, so he reluctantly came back and popped the question.

  17. lucy2 says:

    I don’t get it. You just know it won’t end well.

  18. Enny says:

    I think she knows a lot and isn’t afraid to share it, so she gets the big white wedding with JT that she always wanted in exchange for her silence.

  19. Meg says:

    i think marriage makes him look stable and not like a pure asshole. older men who date around a lot for a long period of time are seen as possibly not respectful to women whereas dating like that in your 20s and early 30s is seen as normal. she’s his beard. she wants this because of the connections it will give her.

  20. Jezi says:

    Congratulations? I just hope it’s really what he wants.

  21. kazoo says:

    Oh, so settling is in for 2012. Good to know.

  22. Ash says:

    Congrats to the wonderfully vanilla couple!

  23. Esperanza says:

    Did he propose to Anne Hathaway first?

  24. normades says:

    His career is down, hers is non-existant…this way people will talk about them. Can’t wait for them to start having kids…and pimp them out

  25. Jayna says:

    Congrats. She is beautiful and has a great sense of humor. I have many friends who had a long term relationship and broke it off because where was it going. The time apart made each man realize how much they loved them and begged them back and got engaged. All happily married.

  26. lol123 says:

    I don’t care what anyone says, Justin Timberlake is effing HOT and I’m honestly shocked this story is true. Jessica Biel is the most bland bitch ever, and not even that cute. Justin needs Mila or Scarlett…

    • KC says:

      No Justin needs to grow a pair. he has a head full of pubic hair, he is known to have a horribly entitled attitude, and he cried on national t.v. during an episode of punk’d. Oh, and he tried to be a bad-ass and show Janet jackson’s boob, and as soon as he got in trouble, he cried and blamed it on everyone else. He ain’t nothing but a p***y.

    • Carolyn says:

      JT was hot when he sang SexyBack but since he’s proved to be a bit of a self-entitled douche. Maybe he did ask Scarlett and she turned him down and went back to Biel…?

  27. anne_000 says:

    So JT supposedly gets engaged about the time Britney announces her engagment. Odd timing…

  28. Nonny says:

    What the flick is she wearing in that last picture?

  29. only1shmoo says:

    Blah, next. Honestly, I don’t get what other women see in him.

  30. Lindsey G. says:

    This is going to end either in a) a broken engagement or b) they get married, he cheats on her, again (I still believe he hasn’t gotten his sluttiness out yet), and this ends in divorce within a year.

  31. Amanda G says:

    I have a feeling this will be a disaster. Even though Justin has had a few long term relationships, I still don’t see him as the “marrying kind.” He’s too immature.

  32. girlindisguise says:

    So Blah Blah and McDouchy are getting married? I believe it when I see it.

  33. Lady_Luck says:

    She is flavourless and boring and the tried and trusted doormat, he is just pure arrogant douche. Together they make an unflattering team, get a whiff of those two coming towards you and I would literally run a mile. They just don’t make a ‘nice’ couple.

  34. ruby says:

    Wow, I didn’t expect that. Somehow I can’t imagine them married, after that on and off relationship. It seems like it’s not serious because of that. I hope they’ve thought it out well and they won’t divorce after a couple of years.

    I wonder how Mila Kunis feels about it ? And do you think they’ll end up having kids ? Justin seems very immature for that.

  35. DarkEmpress says:

    I think this could work. she seems insecure, so the ring gives her the security she needs and she will be happy. then justin can do whatever he likes. Deal!

  36. Green_Eyes says:

    Talking of marriage as the next step right after a break up sounds too conditional and like desperation. When getting engaged…don’t think I would want my PR Reps to put that out there. Does make it sound like trying to hard to revive not just a relationship but career(s). Wow, why did I think Jessica was older? Hmmm could be Due to the fact she dresses like an old lady and he comes off as a smug never grew up kid. IF they do walk down the aisle the wedding, pregnancies, and kids will be pimped to media. Hmm should we start a pool now as to how this will play out??

  37. skuddles says:

    This is one celebrity marriage that might actually last… if only because Jessica will never dump Justin, no matter how many times he d==ks around. And believe me, he’s gonna.

  38. wtf? says:

    um…. wasn’t she just riding with gerard butler…

    on his motorbike, that is,…..

    must of been some ride????

  39. Tazina says:

    It will last for a while, probably long enough to produce a couple of kids. If it lasts, that would be a pleasant surprise but a 50% divorce rate plus a Hollywood marriage (where cheating opportunities abound), tacked on top of that dismal divorce statistic, doesn’t bode well for long term.

  40. Agnes says:

    Oh, this will end well, I’m sure.

  41. truthful says:

    I read a good blind about a couple, wher the male was holding out for a mag to purchase the story and that the marriage will never happen.

    its a business arrangment, I’m tempted to beleive this one.

    what a joke.

  42. shontay says:

    This won’t end well. I doubt they will even make it down the aisle. Poor Jessica. Stooping so low for a ring and Justin is an ass for taking advantage. Pretty sad situation, I think.

  43. Little Darling says:

    Brin’s comment (#4), “Congrats to Meh and Meher.” summed this whole courting up in a nutshell. That would specifically be JT’s nutshells as this SURELY must be where JB has him by now.

    My opine is that he, like most douchefaced cheaters/womanizers who AREN’T FAMOUS do, realized that all of that dick donging about town left him with nothing but rashes and headaches, why not marry her, the Waity Kaity in his life? Certainly he likes her enough to keep going back, unable to completely just walk out…he always goes back to her, and she always takes him back. They’re like that couple in high school that we all knew…

    The only *if*, and it’s a huuuuuuuge if, is that maybe, maybe he realized that he really does love her and will change. I don’t think the likelihood is high, but there is that chance that he has cheated enough and been without her enough to think he’s ready. Sometimes that last getting together really works for couples. However, I won’t believe that until I see more to come. We will know the deal after a couple of “mehxclusives” to UsWeekly of their engagement and all that jazz. I want to believe it with my own eyes that it’s more than PR. They will be blinded if it is!

  44. Camille says:

    I guess the waiting and turning a blind eye on his cheating finally paid off for Biel. We can call her Waity Biely or some sh!t now lol.

    I give them a year or 2 tops. If they make it past 5 years of marriage I would be shocked. lol

  45. kristiner says:

    If Jessica doesn’t stick with Justin she will fade away. He’s the only thing keeping her relevant and keeping people remembering her name. She sucks as an actress as proven by her resume outside of 7th Heaven.

    She HAS to stay by his side. Either has the Goldie Hawn to his Kurt Russell and them never getting married or getting married and never divorcing.

  46. Lynnie says:

    Isn’t this the dizz who talked about not getting roles because she’s “too beautiful?”

    • Cherry Rose says:

      I think it was more like “I have ruined my face with needless plastic surgeries, and the directors don’t want to go over-budget in trying to make my plastic face seem somewhat normal.”

      Oh, and that she can’t act.

    • laji says:

      I’ve always found this hilarious. So Biel thinks she’s more beautiful than Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Kate Beckinsale, Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis, and so on, who have little trouble getting offers. Sure. Sit down, Biel. You might get told you’re beautiful all the time so maybe you believe it, but believe me, that’s not the reason why you don’t get work. And I’m not even a casting director.

  47. Deven says:

    My useless comment is that they just don’t look right together.

  48. Katie says:

    So if they are engaged, where are the ring pictures? I won’t believe it until she show’s off some ice. Also, they will NEVER make it down the aisle.

  49. Original Bee says:

    Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. I give up on finding anyone better. In a few years I bet Jessica ends up like a woman I read about who admitted she and her husband settled for each other. When her husband eventually left her for another woman, he was actually angry with her for not being happy that he’d finally found his soulmate.

  50. Jordan says:

    Place your bets! Will JT first cheat (from this point on) during the engagement or after the wedding? And with who? My bet is during engagement with ScarJo (again).

  51. whatevs says:

    weren’t they off for a while? is she his beard btw?

  52. Charlotte says:

    Do you think he’ll give her a “Dick in a Box” for an engagement gift? Hee Hee.

  53. Quinn says:

    That’s the first time I’ve ever fallen asleep in the middle of a headline.

  54. SamiHami says:

    Don’t know much about either of them, except I know I saw her in a movie once. She was okay; not great, not terrible. As for him, I like that he laughs at himself and isn’t afraid to get silly (SNL). I don’t know his music at all. (My age is showing, I guess. give me Michael McDonald over him any day of the week!)

  55. AttorneyJane says:

    An engagement a month after BRITNEY’S? This jerk just wants to win the race to the altar. He’s still bitter about Brit cheating on him, he wouldn’t even talk to her. Douchebag.
