Jessica Biel is giving away all of the gifts Justin Timberlake gave her


Gerard Butler still hasn’t come to Virginia to propose to me, so my experience with rich boyfriends is… limited. The most expensive thing any dude has ever bought me was… well, I don’t even want to say. It’s embarrassing. Still, I think I may have golddigger tendencies, because if I ever got the chance to land someone decent and rich, I would totally expect expensive gifts. Not quite Style of Jolie junk, but some pretty cocktail rings, and maybe some art and nice purses. Is that too much to ask? Call me old-fashioned, but I consider that kind of stuff an investment. The actual gifts would be an investment for me, and for the guy, they would be an investment in my biscuits.

Jessica Biel has no desire to hang on to those investments, however. At least according to Star Magazine, whose sources claim that Biel is currently giving away some of the higher-ticket items that Justin Timberlake gave her while they were dating:

It’s good to be Jessica Biel’s friend! Since splitting from Justin Timberlake after four years together, the actress is unloading all the love gifts he bought her during their relationship, says an insider.

“She gave a $9,000 Rolex watch to her assistant and a $10,000 diamond bracelet and a one-carat diamond earrings to her producing partner.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

I can see giving that stuff away if it’s not really your taste, but who would honestly give away $10,000+ worth of diamonds? Even if they reminded you of your douchey cheater ex, YOU KEEP THE DIAMONDS. The diamonds make it all better. Not really, but they are definitely what you hold on to post-split.

    Jessica Biel, friend with benefits.

  2. Enny says:

    You give them away if your douchey ex keeps pestering you to give them back. That’s one way to get him off your back AND piss him off, all at the same time. Win-win and not a bad deal at $10,000.

  3. kazoo says:

    i’m surprised she isn’t auctioning them off. take advantage of the weirdo JT sycophants.

  4. tracking says:

    1. Your post made me LMA this morning. Biscuit investment, hah!
    2. But yeah, put those diamonds in a safe deposit box and you’ll be very happy to see them in 10 years when the guy is a distant memory (and you’re no longer working).
    3. That dress, and her body, are freaking amazing.

  5. krissy says:

    I think this is just more stories from camp Biel to make her sound like a strong and generous woman. If he even gave her anything I’m sure she sleeps with it under her pillow every night.

  6. Zelda says:

    That silver and gold dress is amazing.

    And it depresses the f*ck out of me that someone with as sh*tty a resume as Jessica Biel can afford to give away $20,000 in jewelery.

    I mean, did you SEE “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry?” Christ.

  7. Brittney says:

    It’s hard to imagine giving away $10,000 worth of anything because of a break-up, but these people think on larger scales than we do. My last horrible, cheating ex didn’t give me much in comparison, but for us it was special: an amber necklace from his trip to Russia, a pair of glass mushrooms, and other, more sentimental things. I gave every last gift away, either to charity or to a friend who I didn’t see often (and wouldn’t have to see wearing the necklace, natch).

    If we’d had more money, the items may have been grander, but I definitely still would have ditched them. Sometimes you simply can’t heal from a relationship with any physical reminders around (there are already too many reminders in the world).

  8. Quest says:

    Keep the goodies, and flaunt them while dating other guys…that is sweet, sweet revenge (either that or ebay)

  9. haribo says:

    just goes to show that he dumped her and she’s really hurt. she wants him to think that it all doesn’t mean anything to her anymore and she’s gotten quickly over him. unfortunately, she’ll be kicking herself in the butt later on when he really doesn’t mean anything to her and she’s out on the diamonds und co.!

  10. I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. omg how silly can she be??? YOU KEEP THE DIAMONDS.

  11. Dana M says:

    CRAZY!! Don’t give them away! Trade them in for something else!

  12. Embee says:

    “YOU KEEP THE DIAMONDS. The diamonds make it all better.”
    Mwah hahahahah! I love it.

    Entering a divorce now. Will be keeping $30k engagement ring as investment. Heck yeah. It doesn’t make a dent in what he has cost me, anyway.

  13. Marjalane says:

    Sounds like a way to get some revenge publicity to me, and likely she’ll make the “giftees” (paid employees of hers) give the stuff back in a few weeks. Her future “acting” monies are so not secure enough for her to be giving away anything of value!

  14. Cletus says:

    I’m a firm believer in dumping the swag. One of my most precious memories is putting a rather expensive (for us) piece of jewelry my ex-husband gave me for our 2nd anniversary down the disposal right in front of him. I offload everything, including pictures. It reaffirms my idea that not only do I not need you, I don’t need any of your shit, either, and if I want something then I will buy it for my goddamn self.

    Of course, scale may have something to do with it. I doubt if even I could put a rolex and 10gs worth of diamonds in the sink-pig, but you can bet your sweet ass that I’d sell that shit and have a righteous party for all the people in my life who DON’T suck.

  15. truetalk says:

    that famewhore?! no way is she really giving away expensive jewellery. her friends are probably helping her to sell it.

  16. tango says:

    With Jessica’s career, she’d be better off saving the expensive trinkets in case she needs to make some cash later. But then again, with what she knows about JT and his sexual preferences, she might have a great retirement account already negotiated.

  17. Vickyb says:

    Ugh. Dis Elizabeth Taylor get as fabulous as she was by giving away jewels from ex-lovers? Nooooooo! If you hate the ex that much, melt the jewelery down, keep the stones and have that reset in something else. Simple.

  18. Justaposter says:

    She doesn’t strike me as the type to give these types of ‘gifts’ away.

    She is much too clever for that. (or at least I hope she is)

  19. Whatever says:

    I don’t see the big deal. She gave away some gifts her ex gave her. Happens all the time. Maybe she’s not into diamonds or care about the money. It actually is possible to NOT love diamonds and money.

  20. Sigh. says:

    Certain “quality” diamond jewelry is 100% recyclable!!
    Have the metal melted down and the stones remounted in another piece of jewelry of your liking/design.

  21. really says:

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, no wonder he dumperd her! she is so boring!

  22. Liz says:

    @Krissy agree!

  23. JQ says:

    Many years ago, I had a very wealthy boyfriend. He was so generous with things – he took me to a 5-star resort in the Florida Keys, took me to Jamaica for 2 weeks at another 5-star resort, bought me tons of designer handbags and shoes, and even some jewelry. But he was stingy with his heart so we broke up. I still have almost everything he gave me, as he and I are still very good friends. It just didn’t work out. One thing I wish I’d been able to keep was the diamond necklace he gave me but at one point when I’d lost my job, selling it to a jeweler was the only way I could make my car payment. Even though when we broke up, it was super painful for me. Now I’m so happily married that when I look at those purses and shoes, I laugh. It’s nice to have them but being happy and truly loved is much more priceless than anything else.

  24. esblondie says:

    The best gift I got from my ex is a Bose iPod player, and I use that effer every day. You couldn’t pay me to give that thing away…

    (I did have a beautiful engagement ring but I’ve never understood why women hold on to those after a split. Plus, it was his mother’s diamond, and keeping that is bad karma right there…)

  25. Hollowdoll says:

    If you don’t want the stuff around to remind you, why would you give it to people who will wear it in front of you.
    I think this story is BS, leaked to get attention as the woman scorned. She knew what she was getting herself into. I don’t feel sorry for her at all.

  26. esblondie says:

    @Cletus – well said! Love it.

  27. ninjajeje says:

    I had a boyfriend who gave me a beautiful Tiffanys necklace for christmas & he broke up with me by text during a pregnancy scare – I still wear the necklace because I can seperate the value of the jewelry from the heartache. I think you have the right idea #4 Tracking. 🙂

    Put the jewelry away for a few years until you feel ready to appreciate it.

  28. Fire says:

    Leaked story from her – don’t buy it. Stores it all under her tear-soaked pillow so she can pet it every night.

    You CLUNG to a cheater and he dumped you when he finally could. WAH! Sour grapes, baby! Doubt he cares when this “news” gets back to him. He’s already on to the next chickie, buyin HER jewelry to get in HER pants.

  29. OXA says:

    Melt the gold down take the diamonds and make some nice earings or a cocktai ring. I think its petty or she is just saying it for the attention. Better idea for media coveragewould be to sell the other stuff on Ebay and donate the proceeds to charity.

  30. notnormallyagingerbut says:


    Completely agree, this is BS

  31. melinda says:

    I’ve never given anything back and never asked for anything back. Gifts are just that. I don’t think she should have given away the loot. She could at least have it melted down or take it in for a trade for another lovely piece.

  32. The H says:

    Beige-y beige beige.

  33. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I would’ve kept the ‘diamond’ from my engagement ring from my ex-husband, but when I went to have it appraised I found out it was a fake! Haha, just one more bastardy thing he did, I guess…So, I sold it (and his wedding band) to a cash-for-gold place for $300 and used that for the filing fee for my divorce papers.

  34. Cherry Rose says:

    I’ve given away some of my stuffed animals my exes have given to my younger cousins. They love it when I bring them the stuffed animals.

    However, anything else I get as gifts I keep, including this pretty ruby, diamond, and white gold ring I always wear on my right ringfinger and a Bettie Page cigarette case. I’m too attached to them to give them away. ^.^;

  35. candy says:

    Generous of her. I definitely believe in getting rid of all shit if the memories are unbearable and the break-up bad. Jess can buy her own jewels so take that a-hole!

  36. dovesgate says:

    Stupid. Auction them for charity, sell them, redesign the jewelry if you must. You give the engagement ring back if you got one without getting married but the rest? That kind of money? Even more stupid than I thought she was in the first place.

  37. jemshoes says:

    I have zero interest in diamonds or jewellery, but I can see how being practical with the goods at the end of a relationship can be financial smarts! 😉 Keep the bling, if only for a rainy day.

    My ex-boyfriend once drew me a map from my house to his, in the style of Dungeons and Dragons / Tolkien, complete with a little dragon and compass. Sweet! 🙂 (See why I have a thing for nerds?! Being married to another, better nerd has only been sweeter.) The relationship was a huge mistake, but I kept that map for ages without bitterness and some sentimentality. Yes, no bling, but I got a map! 😀

  38. Isa says:

    Would be nice for her to pass some of that stuff over here.

    I was going to get rid of a necklace that an ex gave me. My teacher convinced me not to and I’m glad he did. I still have it, although I put the word out that I sold the necklace for five dollars! 🙂

  39. LuckyLilGem says:

    Seems like she’s trying to prove that she wasn’t into JT for the gifts. Don’t understand giving it to an assistant, why not auction it through Christy’s for charity? Many a famous former lovers have done that.

  40. B says:

    I understand…it’s like a cleansing (for someone who doesn’t need the cash value trade-in)…out with the old and in with the new.

    She gave & shared so other people can enjoy what she doesn’t want as a reminder. Now she can start with fresh energy since she doesn’t need (and can buy her own) inanimate objects.

    I do agree it would have been great to auction or donate to earn charity $$$, if this story is indeed true…

  41. Hakura says:

    Ahh, to be so wealthy that you have no problem throwing away 10,000 worth of diamonds.

    It’s definitey a vindictive move on her part, not that she doesn’t deserve it after dating JT. Granted she knew what sort of guy he was for years, & still tolerated it. No woman I know with any self esteem would ever do that. I’d say selling her self esteem was the higher cost than any rolex or diamonds.
