Jessica Biel’s father tries to bribe Justin Timberlake into marriage


Justin Timberlake is having issues with Jessica Biel… her father, that is. Apparently, Jessica’s dad Jon Biel is all up on JT, trying to get Justin to marry his daughter. Jon calls JT to have “man-to-man talks” about getting his little girl down the aisle. According to the National Enquirer, Jon even offered a “bribe” to Justin (and I’m not even joking, NE refers to this as a “bribe”) – that he would pay for the whole wedding. That’s not a technically a “bribe”, dude. A “bribe” would be $300,000 in unmarked bills waiting for Justin after the deed is done. Offering to pay for the wedding is ole-timey tradition for the bride’s family – although who knows how many brides’ families still adhere to that in this day and age.

Justin Timberlake is being pressured into marriage – by his girlfriend’s relentless dad, say sources.

The “SexyBack” singer has been dragging his feet over proposing to Jessica Biel, his girlfriend of two years. The former 7th Heaven beauty’s dad has begun hammering away at the 28-year-old Justin to march down the aisle, revealed an insider.

And to sweeten the deal, Jon Biel has offered to pay the wedding bill.

“Jessica’s dad is really putting heat on Justin to marry her,” said the insider.

“Jon’s been calling Justin a lot lately for man-to-man talks.”

The no-nonsense dad asked the performer to “do the right thing” regarding his daughter, the insider revealed.

Justin moved the 27-year-old actress into his Hollywood Hills home last summer, and since then, wedding speculation has run rampant.

“But Justin is running out of time and excuses,” the source said. “Jon has made it clear he’s growing impatient.”

Jessica’s dad even offered him a “bribe”, says the insider.

“Jon told Justin that he’ll cover the entire cost of the wedding.”

My first thought was “I bet the unnamed source is Jessica.” My second thought was “How embarrassing for Jessica if even part of this is true.” Jessica seems like she really wants to get Justin down the aisle, true. But I doubt she gets her father to do her dirty work. On the bright side, at least Jon isn’t threatening Justin with a shotgun. Or at least, there will be no shotgun threats until Jessica gets “accidentally” pregnant. There’s a bribe – marry my daughter or I’ll shoot you. No, wait, that’s not a bribe. That’s a felony!

    Not a good way to convince Justin to take it to the next level…

  2. heh-heh says:

    In that first photo, he looks like a homeless nerd and she looks like she just got out of prison.

    HE: I can’t believe I don’t have a job! I went to Missouri TECH for cryin’ out loud!

    SHE: You happen to know where I can get a new shank!?

  3. j. ferber says:

    They never look happy together and seem incredibly full of themselves, for whatever reason. I’ve always thought this was a “show” relationship. I’m betting he’ll dump her soon.

  4. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    Hmmmm, strange story – JT is obviously really short of money so her father offering to pay for the wedding is really going to help persuade him to marry her. I mean, that’s the only reason they haven’t married yet – they’ve been saving up for the wedding.

  5. JSH says:

    If a man wants to spend the rest of his life with the woman he loves, he doesn’t need to be bribed.
    If if hasn’t happened already, it probably never will.

  6. FF says:

    I honestly can’t say I want them to marry. She doesn’t seem like she’s had enough fun yet. I mean the minute she started dating him it’s like all the hotness drained out of her.

    I’m not feeling that they’d start looking happier after a wedding but I’d be cool with being wrong.

  7. Pam says:

    Is this the ugliest couple or what… eww!

  8. ash says:

    Justin, that is NOT a good look for you.

  9. larawinn says:

    They don’t look happy, and they look like that in every recent pic. And I don’t get the “bribe”…how is that supposed to convince Justin? I’m sure the #1 reason he’s not proposing is because of the wedding bill…ha

  10. Ned says:

    Justin always makes his woman miserable.
    HE has too much ego, that there is no room for a wife in his life.

    Jessica is a young woman. She should move on with her life and stop wasting her time on this narcissist.

  11. Maritza says:

    Jessica needs to get pregnant, that will pressure him to get married.

  12. Anoneemouse says:

    Ummm pretty positive that if Justin is dragging his heals marrying his daughter it has NOTHING to do with paying for the wedding!

  13. Bob says:

    They won’t get married until they can figure out who would wear the tuxedo and who would wear the wedding gown.

  14. TinaWithPom says:

    @Bob :-)

    This has got to be made up baloney. I can’t imagine any woman’s father–or mother, for that matter–being impatient for his daughter to get married! This is the 21st century and women have all kinds of options out there. I, for one, was overjoyed, but honest to God, in absolute tears, at each of my daughter’s weddings.

  15. Taya says:

    Jessica is just a nasty looking bitch. They are both ugly together. What is the hype all about with these two?

  16. Lem says:

    her career has completely left her
    her looks are hiding
    her smile seems to have vanished
    she better get outta there
    ..
    Does anyone else have a little quilted ‘shop for this look’? Why in the 80′s hell would I want to shop for that look?

  17. Lalaine30 says:

    Justin is going to bolt any moment now because of all the pressure being put in to him about this marriage thing.
