Jessica Biel’s parents hate Justin Timberlake, and they have excellent reasons

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were just in Italy last week, on what seemed like a romantic pre-wedding vacation. Biel had been in Paris beforehand, allegedly meeting with various designers about her wedding dress. Everyone seems to think that the wedding will be going down some time this summer – my guess is that it will be a late summer wedding. Maybe late June, early August? That’s what I consider late summer – I’m not one of those people who counts September as part of the “summer”. I’m old-school like that. Anyway, everything seems on track for Biel and Timberlake. And by “on track” I mean that everything is a complete mess but Jessica won’t stand up to Justin because she’s so hypnotized by the idea of becoming a bride. According to this week’s Enquirer, Jessica’s parents still have major qualms about their future son-in-law. With good reason, as you’ll see:

Jessica Biel’s engagement to Justin Timberlake is being rocked by her family’s distrust of him! Tensions in the Biel family have reached fever pitch with Jessica’s devoted dad remaining suspicious of Timberlake’s intentions, sources say. And Justin’s reached the end of his rope.

“Justin has tried everything to win over Jessica’s family – gifts, wining and dining her parents, attending key family events, and even giving her brother Justin a job, only to have it thrown back in his face,” revealed a friend of Justin. “He finally got frustrated and blew up at Jessica. She begged him to have patience and assured him that she loves him and has faith in him.”

But it’s easy to see why her parents would feel otherwise.

“Jessica dad and her mom Kim will never forget the hurt Justin caused their daughter when they split early last year,” said a source close to the Biel family. “They’d been together for four years and she put up with so much, including his on-set affair with Mila Kunis and him hooking up with Olivia Munn shortly before they split.”

Justin has also been linked to Olivia Wilde and Ashley Olsen, and Jessica constantly fins phone numbers from girls in his pockets, added the source. Even after they got engaged in December, Justin reverted to his bad-boy ways.

“Jessica started to complain that she hardly ever saw him… in February, Jessica actually begged Justin to teach her how to sing – not because she wanted to try musical theater, which is what she told him, but because she wanted to spend quality time with him!”

Still, her parents remain worried that he’ll cheat on her again, according to the source.

“Justin refuses to sell his bachelor pad on Mulholland Drive, and that’s left a foul taste in her dad’s mouth,” explained the source. “Justin insists he wants to keep his boys-only parties away from Jessica’s house, where he normally stays. But even when Jessica offered to build him a ‘man cave’ on her property for him, he refused to sell. As far as her parents are concerned, these are not the actions of a man who’s serious about settling down – and no amount of cash-flashing will convince them otherwise.”

Look, I’ve said it before – this wedding should not be taking place. Jessica and Justin are a MESS together, and this story only emphasizes that. I’m not saying that everything in here is true – although many of the details can be verified or assumed by most logical people – but if only a fraction of it is true, how can Jessica walk into this marriage? He won’t give up his “bachelor pad.” He still gets digits when he goes out “with the boys.” Jessica has taken him back after he flaunted his infidelities. Basically, her parents seem like nice, normal people who have no interest in seeing their daughter marry a cheating d-bag. But I have to wonder – what are Jessica’s parents saying to HER? “Honey, you don’t have to marry him. Think about it. Stand up for yourself.” Why isn’t she listening?

    He has $$$$$$$$!! She wants to retire.. her acting career isn’t much to sacrifice..

    • Jackie says:

      i’m sure he has an ironclad prenup in place.

      • Zvonk says:

        1. A prenup has no bearing during a marriage, only in the event of a divorce. So any desire to retire on her part won’t be effected by a prenup.

        2. A prenep only protects money you had when you entered the marriage. Any money earned during the marriage is unprotected. Justin’s film career is taking off, plus he still has his music career. He’s definitely going to be earning decent money over the next few years, and she’d be entitled to half of what he earns during their marriage, in the event of a divorce.

      • Jackie says:

        a prenup only has bearing in the event of a divorce…gee, thanks for the update.

      • Roma says:

        @Zvonk: Actually, each prenup is different and he can protect his earnings while they are married. There might be a maximum settlement in place, etc.

      • Day says:

        “Justin’s film career is taking off”

        HA. What film career? He has been at this how long now and still hasn’t made a half way decent film? The dude can’t act. Period. He needs to return to the stage because that is where he belongs. Singing, dancing and writing songs are the things he’s good at. I love JT the entertainer; JT the actor leaves a lot to be desired.

      • Elizabeth says:

        Zvonk,a pre-nup may or may not protect either party’s post-wedding eearnings. It depends on how it is written and what the parties want it to cover.
        Aside from that, she seems to be that kind of woman who marries the wrong kind of man and justifies it by pointing to all of the time she has put in getting him to the alter (i.e. “but what about all of the time I’ve put in to this relationship?”). Always a bad move.

    • says:

      Not just money (I;m sure it’s a plus but not her main reason), I think she a)likes that she’s the one to land him (really I would have thought Diaz had a better chance) and 2) he keeps her relevant.

      Maybe she wants to retire (doubt it) but she’ll get to the be on the top rung of the Hollywood wives club once that happens thanks to him (even if most americans find his cultural relevancy long dead, Hollywood seems unable to let go).

    • Raven says:

      People who think they are in love (or are in love) don’t listen to reason. I had a close friend who married a disaster of a woman. His friends tried to talk him out of it, even his father tried to get him to rethink things. He just got angry with all of us. Of course, things didn’t work out and a couple of years later they got divorced, which really screwed up her poor son. JB is obviously blind on this subject, which is too bad.

  2. Dex says:

    Justin you are too good for her. Leave her. She is nobody.

    • Tapioca says:

      Oh, that was way harsh, Tai!

      She’s attractive, athletic and has her own career. So she’ll (probably – Halle Berry!) never win an Oscar, but she’s working consistently.

      I do wish she’d just grow some self-respect and ditch the little twerp, though. It’s HE that doesn’t deserve HER!

      • St says:

        Halle Berry was good in Monster’s Ball and other films. I feel she chooses bad movies but when in the right movie does a good job.

    • yo momma says:

      ugh! on the contrary, i’m not even a Biel fan (think i have seen her in one movie?) but shes too good for him. he sounds like a shitty partner which is probably why all his other famous girlfiends didnt stick around. sounds like she may be a tad bit insecure which is a pity, i hope she reconsiders because there are more decent men out there!

    • Sa11i says:

      All i know is I lost total and all respect for him when he was on Punkd and they tried to tow his car so he called mommy while trying really hard not to cry. Then when he found out it was a joke, he got all “faux ghetto” and tried to act badass. For me, there is nothing less sexy than a Beta male. Jessica can do much better than him and his constant need to validate his masculinity by treating his woman like crap.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Yes! ^^ This!

        (I know he was younger then, but come on! Calling mommy and crying?)

  3. Lol says:

    That poor girl has the most horrible engagement ring ever

    • WillyNilly says:

      It looks like something that can be purchased at Claire’s for $12. Fo’ real.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Have you seen Angie’s?? Everyone can’t stop raving about how gorgeous it is, but I think hers is even worse than JB’s.

      • hunter says:

        Angie’s is basically a huge diamond with a hole in the middle for her finger.

        I’m not wild about it.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        I don’t care for it. It reminds me of a tacky chandelier; something you’d see in “The Donald’s” place.

    • Assistantrachel says:

      Yes, that ring alone is enough reason for her parents to hate him.

  4. Jackie says:

    she is determined to have a wedding. i’m sure we all know lots of women/girls like this. it can be a crappy relationship, but that won’t stop them.

    anything to have that “fairytale”!

    • Kitten says:

      Yep. Honestly, the asking for digits when he goes out to bars- I see married guys asking for numbers, hitting on chicks all the time at bars. Guess those ladies shouldn’t have gotten married either.

    • molly says:

      I agree. She actually reminds me of Waity Katie if you ask me.

  5. Esmom says:

    Wow, I had no idea what a trainwreck they are.

    • Carolyn says:

      A significant proportion of gossip sites and devotees consider this to be a marriage between one or more beards. This “drama” is a PR ploy to a) try and drum up interest and b) make it look like there’s some emotion happening. I can’t get excited about this union, either way.

      • akua says:

        I know, I always thought she was gay and he was at least bi; and that this whole thing is for show

      • Jordan says:

        I agree, Carolyn. This has got to be a bearding situation b/c how does almost the entire world not understand this union and yet they are supposed to be ‘so in love’? I don’t see any love or affection. And I’m not saying they have to be all over each other but just don’t look miserable every time they’re seen together. Those who insist that it is just the paps that make them miserable, I’ve seen a couple of reg people photos of them in a restaurant (they didn’t know they were being photo’d) and he is always the one talking to the table, ignoring her and she just sits and stares at either her plate or him. This is a staged relationship, for sure. I don’t even know if they like each other.

  6. ataylor says:

    First of all, I don’t see why Justin would have to sell any real estate holdings clearly purchased prior to the start of their relationship, especially in this economy.

    Second, she doesn’t need any help in the singing department. She can already sing and is pretty darn good. Heard her sing live in a musical a few years after she left 7th Heaven. Musical theater is something she has already DONE.

    Third, I don’t think it’s girls numbers she keeps finding in his pockets. Then again, I have serious doubts about the both of them.

    • Naye in VA says:

      Two things i agree with. She did that movie Easy Virtue a few years back and sang. Secondly, in this glorious age of cell phones, who keep numbers in their pants pockets? lol

      • Jaye says:

        I was thinking the same thing in regard to the phone numbers thing. Nobody writes down numbers anymore. The just program them into their phones.

      • mln76 says:

        I actually believe the #s on paper not on the phone. JT is such a player and cheated so many times he probably doesn’t want to get caught with suspicious #’s in his cell.

      • LAK says:

        i liked Easy Virtue.

      • Kate says:

        People probably just shove them in there. I doubt she found Mila’s or Olivia’s.

      • Brittney says:

        I believe the numbers on paper, too. Girls can’t “slip” their numbers into someone’s phone; I still see plenty of women (and men) trade phone numbers on bar napkins. I’d imagine that it’s especially true for celebrities and their fans; it’s much easier to pass Justin Timberlake a number than to see if he’ll care enough to program it into his actual phone.

  7. mln76 says:

    Poor Jessica no self esteem and even less intelligence. Justin Timberdouche is sooo not worth it girl.

  8. brin says:

    This has irreconcilable differences written all over it.

  9. Anon says:

    He’s not even that good-looking. I’ve never understood the attraction.

    • Gia says:

      Totally. I don’t see the appeal either. I find him so annoying and show-offy. ‘look at me!look at what I can do’! His mama told him he was special way too often.

      • Roma says:

        I like to call it the “special butterfly syndrome”. My boyfriend’s baby sister is studying acting at NYU and every single person in her program (including her) suffers from it.

        I always blame the mom.

      • moonriver says:

        I like to say they think they’re ‘godd*mn special little snowflakes’ (thanks palahniuk!). I’m go to a campus full of mostly art majors…. sigh.

  10. Agnes says:

    justin should try not treating her like crap and cheating on her, instead of buying her parents gifts, maybe that new approach would win them over. ha!

    • kit says:

      I’m sure Jessica’s parents just want him to treat her right. If he can’t pull that of now, what will he do a few years down the line?

    • yo momma says:


    • Izzy says:

      LOL, exactly what I was thinking! Even a twerp like him should be able to figure out the obvious – try manning up and treating their daughter with respect. He seriously expects her parents to respect him at all, with the way he’s treated her?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Wait, what? You mean treat someone with the same amount of respect you’d like to be treated?

      Not gonna happen with him. Not until she divorces him and takes half, and/or he’s one of those pathetic skeezy older guys in bars hitting on girls young enough to be their granddaughters.

  11. jc126 says:

    She’s a pathetic, clingy chump.

  12. Zelda says:

    Has there ever been anything but heresay about all this? I mean, it’s always from “a source” in their case, never a photo, never more than an untraceable rumour…

    I can believe it’s all true, but really, I find these two SO boring because there is nothing really about them that can be actually tied to reality in anyway. No scandal, just stories from faceless nobodies.

    They can’t even fuck up their lives interestingly. :/

    Lamest gossip fodder ever, these two.

  13. Esther says:

    But when is he going to all these bars and stuff he’s been Busy filming and when he does go out its to play golf. If he were getting girls numbers they probably be in his phone and not on paper he could just save the numbers into his phone and shed never know. He doesnt need to sell his home if they get married and then divorced its pretty likely she’ll want whatever house they move into so he will need something to live in when that happens so he doesn’t have to buy a new home.

  14. valleymiss says:

    I’m surprised Kaiser didn’t make note of the confirmation (well, in gossip terms, anyway) that Mila and Justin DID get together!

    • cupidityrox says:

      My heart broke when i read that Mila hooked up with him. I love her & detest him. He’s an overated, arrogant, wimpy mama’s boy. I don’t give two shits about Jessica biel

    • lol123 says:

      Where was that confirmed? Recently?

      • Fifi says:

        I think vallymiss is talking about the Enquirer article above which states ‘including the on-set affair with Mila Kunis’ It’s the first time a gossip rag has acutally bluntly called them out.

        Also if your interested, (it’s sorta old news but whatever)

  15. Talie says:

    She’s not the first pragmatic bride we’ve seen–hello, Kate Middleton, Salma Hayek, Katie Holmes, etc…a lot of women look the other way to enjoy other perks along the way.

  16. barbi says:

    Does she have to stick her hand out in some way, in every picture now? Lol We get it, you’re engaged to some ugly dude who thinks he is too good for everyone, blah. I for one, am not impressed!

  17. ladybert62 says:

    I believe they will be officially separated before the first 6 months of their married life – a disaster in the making.

    • Ellie says:

      If they actually do get married, I don’t think their marriage be over in 6 months. I think Biel comes from the Jennifer Garner school of wifery. She’s gonna make that ish work. She’s gonna struggle through it for years (as she already has). She’s gonna pop out some babies hoping that it will settle him down. And for all of that, she’ll be a little bit miserable with brief periods of happiness.

      The difference with Garner is that at least Affleck actually wanted to be married to her at some point. He seemed happy to settle down with her. Justin’s never reached that point. So Biel is going into this as an uphill battle.

  18. Quinn says:

    All this drama and they’re STILL both boring…

  19. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    By keeping this house, it’s like he’s planning the end before the marriage even starts. He is so pathetic..ugh she is too. They deserve each other. Anyway, wasn’t there speculation a few months back that she was into girls? The pic of a girl grabbing her a$$ at a football game..who knows, may have an arrangement.

  20. Holden says:

    Run bitch!

  21. TG says:

    Never liked him even before I read a word about him. He just has this douche look about him. I think someone called him a Twerp and that is exactly right. I really really can’t stand mamas boys or mamas girls (Kim K), anyone who can’t make a decision on their own without mommys consent. If you look at his older pics pre-Cam days and also during his relationship with Cam you can see it in his face he is trying so hard to be taken seriously and look like a man. Yuck. He ruins every girl he is with and I no longer like Mila if she hooked up with him. Don’t women and men too have any self-respect. And lots of laughs @Roma regarding the “Butterfly Syndrome”. Too true. Seems lots of people are raised to think they are darn special. I can’t tell you how many young women I meet at work and they all talk about how they were going to do modeling as a teen or some nonesense like that and I look at them and think they aren’t even that attractive or with a body for a model. Does every parent tell their teen daughter that she is model material and should be an actress?

  22. paola says:

    Please can someone tell me why Jessica Biel is relevant?

  23. Jenna says:

    Wasn’t he cheated on all those years ago? I don’t understand why he’d turn around and do that to someone else. And Jessica, have some respect for yourself! Sheesh.

  24. Lotta says:

    I think that Angelina and Jessica are the two most beautiful women in Hollywood today. Justin is just ugly and nasty, hope she cuts herself loose before it is too late, she is too good for him.

  25. alexis says:

    She needs to get a clue.

  26. cupidityrox says:

    First off. She’s fug.
    Two. This marriage so won’t last. He’ll be cheating on her during the honeymoon. He’s made it obvious he doesn’t want to marry her. This marriage is a publicity stunt on both their parts

  27. Esther says:

    I don’t think he’s worried about pleasing her parents nor does he care.

  28. Gene Parmesan says:

    Why is she going through his pockets?? lmao

    • sluggo says:

      Probably looking for some loose $$$. After all, girl’s gotta save for a rainy day. Those film roles and $12 Claire’s rings don’t buy themselves, you know. Plus the only way she’s ever going to get an Oscar is if she buys someone else’s, and they don’t come cheap.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Have you ever tried cleaning paper bits out of your washing machine? It. SUCKS.

  29. aud says:

    I hope she isn’t one of the delusional girls who thinks that marriage will fix everything wrong in a relationship.

    marriage only makes it worse cause breaking up is a biatch

    • RoxyRoller85 says:

      I’ve met some ‘regular guys’ who have married their woman in an effort to either turn her or keep her honest, as they say- never ever works out- i think ya gotta marry ppl 4 the f up they are- not your idea of the perfect partner

  30. Day says:

    Both of them think they can be A list actors, so that right there tells you neither has a firm grip on reality. So much delusion in one relationship. Of course it won’t last. Jessica isn’t the first chick to be so blinded by her delusions of a perfect family/life that she settle for the first loser to come around. Assholes like Justin seek out weak minded women like her b/c they can easily be manipulated.

  31. palermo says:

    He’s homely, he’s a cheater, and he’s a big Mommy’s boy. I wouldn’t touch him with a ten foot pole.

  32. Eleonor says:

    She will be cheated, she knows it, but she is a mess and still wants to marry him. No simpathy, the only thing I can say the girl wasn’t even able to get a decent engagement ring.

  33. bagladey says:

    I don’t get the impression that he’s crazy about her, at least not the way I could feel the energy about the insane way he felt about Mila Kunis. Well, maybe Jessica thinks there’ll be some status in being JT’s first wife.

  34. the original bellaluna says:

    I hope she has a high-powered attorney who works out a favourable pre-nup, for her benefit. She’s gonna need it.

    I can understand why her parents don’t like him – if someone dating my daughter treated her that way, I’d hurt him.

  35. dirtyrich says:

    US Weekly has a story up on their site about them planning to do it in Italy.

  36. mar says:

    I really do not understand why he is settling for her. Shes seems like such a bore.

  37. theone says:

    I really wonder what to believe here. Or what NOT to believe. I think they don’t have much in common though etc. I just wonder if they will even get married. Or how much of this is PR or not and just all talk..

  38. Nicole says:

    She’s so pathetic. I don’t feel sorry for her anymore.

  39. lol123 says:

    He reminds me of Don Draper… “I gave you everything! what more could you possibly want?” Reminds me of so many cheating men. Biel is just like their wives, just like Betty – all she wants is to be able to trust him, and for him to come home to her and her alone at night.

    Sadly, that’s not going to happen.

    Find someone on the same page as you, JB.

  40. fabgrrl says:

    If I were her parents, I would be disappointed in Jessica for putting up with such crap! Although, they should really be disappointed in themselves for raising a child who would do so.

  41. skuddles says:

    Ugh she’s seriously that stupid and desperate to marry him even after she discovers he’s gone back to his “bad boy ways”? Grow a spine girl – scrounge up some self-respect!! THINK!!

  42. judyjudy says:

    Her ring looks like it is made out of tin foil.

  43. MaxxHotness says:

    Guess her parents don’t know she’s gay

    • Kimmie says:

      please she at least is gay..him I say dbl dips..that is why there is no chemistry…shows how bad they act..can’t even fake a romance…

  44. Aubra says:

    …she gonna get “Brangelina’d”…with a “normal” girl. I SWEAR him and Bradley Cooper are gonna wind up with “normal” women!

  45. Chrissy says:

    Maybe it’s just a bad picture but that ring looks ugly and cheap. It kind of looks like a man’s school ring.

  46. Original Lucy says:

    When you see them together, there is absolutely zero chemistry between them…I don’t get them together at all…don’t know if JT hooked up with Mila, but they seemed to have more chemistry together…and as for the ring, maybe Jessica picked it out, because by the look of most of the clothes she wears, she has horrible taste…

  47. Dhee says:

    I have never once thought either of these people are homosexual. Biel reminds me of my aunt who can’t live without a man. After she lost her husband she latched onto the next one and wouldn’t give him up even after he cheated on her and gave her aids. Her reasoning? She’s invested a lot of time on making the relationship work and they were already comfortable with each other. Her exact words, “Besides he has aids and I’ve already caught it, leaving him isn’t going to change that. And who else would want me now?”

    I hate to say it of my own aunt but that’s who Biel reminds me of. I think she’s desperately in love with him and is probably one those women who rationalizes all of their man’s mistakes. She probably thinks he’ll respect her more when she’s his wife.

    And Justin will probably never let her good because being married can work in favor when you want to seem more grounded and established (mature). Plus he’s found a woman looking to over look his discretion. He can have a little lady at home and still get some on the side.

    I can’t respect women like that.

  48. lisa says:

    I don’t know much about her. I know that Justin was with Cameron for a long time. But who was Jessica with before Justin?

    • Toni says:

      Derek Jeter for a short period and before him Chris Evans in a long term relationship.
      Is there away to get around moderation? I’ve never posted something to break the rules why am I being monitored?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Sometimes moderation just happens. Certain catchphrases and names in the comments, I think.

  49. Karen says:

    Justin’s a jerk. Always has been, always will be. Her parents are right to distrust him. The relationship is doomed for failure and when it does, Baby Juju will trash talk Jessica to get ahead and make himself appear the wronged one.

  50. Mario says:

    He’s an arrogant womanizing douche bag, and her parents are smart enough to know that he’s a two faced prick.

  51. Deann Baldwin says:

    Beard for both.

  52. Samanthalous says:

    If Cam could not pin this one down no one can, she wants to be the one that pinned JT down into marriage which clearly is a mistake.
