Jessica Biel believes that ‘natural charmer’ Justin Timberlake ‘didn’t cheat on her’

The 89th Annual Academy Awards Arrivals

No one: …

Not a soul: …

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel: Everyone is talking about how Justin cheated except he didn’t except that he absolutely apologized and Jessica made him apologize publicly and stop gossiping about our marriage, we’re super-private and why won’t you just leave us alone to repeatedly make public statements about how Justin held hands with a costar?!?!?!

So, that’s where we are now. I would happily ignore Justin and Jessica but they keep on wanting to talk about it, so here we are. “Sources” went to People Magazine for this week’s issue, and they spilled the tea on how Justin absolutely loves his wife and he’s absolutely doing the most to make it up to her.

Jessica Biel and husband Justin Timberlake are moving forward despite recent drama surrounding their relationship. In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, a source close to the couple says that the Sinner actress, 37, “is standing by” the former ‘NSYNC frontman, 38, after he was seen holding hands and mingling closely with Alisha Wainwright, his costar on the upcoming film Palmer, on a balcony during an outing with friends in New Orleans on Nov. 23.

“Obviously Justin drank too much this time, but Jessica believes he didn’t cheat on her,” the source says of the couple, who have been married since 2012 and share a 4-year-old son, Silas. “What’s most important to her in life is her family and being the best mom to Silas. She’ll never break up her family over something like this.” A source close to Biel says “it was good” that Timberlake apologized publicly, but that “the real work he is doing is in private.”

While Timberlake is known in entertainment circles as a “natural charmer,” a music industry source says he has matured since becoming a dad. “I don’t think he would do anything to change his current situation,” the source says. “He has grown up a lot over the past few years and enjoys every minute of being a dad. He even likes the added responsibilities.” Of the misstep, the source says, “I doubt it will happen again.”

Another insider adds, “Jessica is a beautiful and intelligent woman; he knows that. He loves her.”

“Timberlake is known in entertainment circles as a ‘natural charmer’…” Where? Show it to me. I actually think “natural charmer” is one of those euphemisms used by high-end tabloid media. Like, when Duchess Kate and Rose Hanbury were “rural rivals” it meant that Prince William was boning Rose. In this case, “natural charmer” is probably a euphemism for “he gets drunk/high and tries to f–k anything with two legs and a pulse.” As for this: “She’ll never break up her family over something like this…” Yeah… that implies that there are some varieties of infidelity that will lead to the break up of her family.

    I’ll never like him.

    He also needs to apologize to Janet Jackson and Britney Spears.

    • Weldy says:

      THIS. He was the one who ripped her dress, for Heaven’sake! And Janet was the only one blamed for the whole incident. Misogyny and sexism at their best here.

  2. phaedra says:

    “Natural charmer” = sex pest.

  3. Louisa says:

    Sure Jan.

  4. olala says:

    He is perfect example of asexual to me. Together with Leo di Caprio. Lol

    • AnnaKist says:

      Ha! I feel the same about the pair of them.

    • Lulu says:

      @opals bwahahaha! I feel the same way….except he obviously has sex because he is a known cheater. But with narcissists isn’t sex more about reiterating their own delusions of grandeur? Because I don’t get natural human warmth emanating from him

    • deezee says:

      Um no. Neither of them are asexual and they don’t present that way either.

      Tim Gunn is the perfect example of asexual as that is how he describes himself.

  5. Bettyrose says:

    Don’t care about these two…but this dynamic is common enough and I don’t get it. Such a tired cliche.

  6. dothedougie says:

    What publicist, or 13-year old writer at People magazine, actually thinks people will believe this stuff? It’s so cringe worthy to read and embarrassingly transparent. If the goal of this article was to assure the public that JT is a changed man and their relationship is fine, it accomplished the complete opposite.

    • Ann says:

      This. All of this. The whole statement total does read like a 13 year old girl wrote this while PMSing. Because of that it seems overwrought, unnecessary, and accomplishes the exact opposite of its intent. All I could think reading it is their divorce is going to be messy and stupid. They should get better publicists so all these dumbass statements don’t come across like middle school gossip.

    • Ana Maria says:

      the goal of the article/publicist is to reassure the public, and Justin Timberlake, that JT still matters

  7. HK9 says:

    Ok people, who’s gonna break it to her…

  8. Originaltessa says:

    I’ve never in my entire life stroked the inner thigh of a man in public that I wasn’t having sex with. It’s such an intimate gesture. I’m sure there are people a lot less prudish than me that don’t think it’s a big deal. But if that was my husband, I’d feel cheated on and betrayed just from that hand placement.

    • MariettaJones91 says:

      @original, I feel you. Same for me. I had a gay friend in college that I have done that with, hand on the thigh, but we were both single and were super close. If he had been seeing someone I would have never even thought about doing that. Drinking included.

      But I guess I have respect for people that are in relationships. That’s the thing that bugs me about JT, he has no respect for Jessica. I also feel like a lot of other celebs have no respect for anyone, friends, costars, etc. It’s like the minute they become famous they are just given a pass because of who they are. I don’t know how I would be able to trust anyone in that world.

    • Kosmos says:

      ABSOLUTELY ***** thank you!

  9. LW says:

    Is this just some sort of stunt to get attention for this movie? Because it’s all so sloppy and they just keep rehashing it.

  10. Mrs. Peel says:

    They are both so thirsty for attention and recognition it’s sad really.

    • Christina says:

      Poor Jessica, using her husband’s infidelity to get attention from Hollywood. They still aren’t going to hire her.

      He’s never going to change, but she knew who she married. And she expected to have a career married to him, but that didn’t happen. The restaurant failed. Can you imagine wanting a public apology when your husband humiliated you? Lela Rochon has so much class compared to this dolt. You aren’t leaving. Work on your marriage in private, but that isn’t the priority.

      • daniela says:

        who say’s it Jessica’s doing. Tabloids are obviously going to follow up his apology with their own stories. Jessica isn’t the one who needs to do damage control, Justin is.

      • Christina says:

        @daniela, it’s been reported that she asked him to make his apology public. For what? Why is that necessary? I wouldn’t ask my husband to take out an ad or put it on Instagram. What’s the point? The point is that this is Hollywood.

        Sometimes a marriage to a famous person will build the persona of the partner. Sometimes it doesn’t. Her career as an actress has faltered. There is no reason to ask someone to do this unless you want the attention.

        Maybe she DIDN’T ask him to publicly apologize to her, but it sure looks that way. Initially, it was reported that he voluntarily did it. If so, she is keeping their lives private. If not, why do it? Who? Publicity? You are right about the tabloids covering what they can to sell, but this looks and is being reported in a weird, deliberate way.

      • Meg says:

        Yeah jess doesnt really leave an impression on audiences, this is an excuse to keep them in the news because of that.I
        she was a doormat for justin even when dating.
        Remember those embarrassing wedding pictures they released to people where he hogged every picture pulling focus and even their pregnancy announcement he cut her out!

  11. Kinta07 says:

    And I believe in Santa Claus ^^

  12. Well-Wisher says:

    Ditto @Mrs Peel.

  13. Rocķy says:

    I think they have an agreement that he can cheat as long as it’s not public. So it’s a big deal to her that he got caught and embarrassed her. That’s what the problem is.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Then she can get in line behind Hillary Clinton, Kate Middleton, and the multitudes of other spouses who discovered that won’t work out. (Note on Hillary Clinton, though, I’ve always thought she did/does manage discreet affairs. Some people can make it work).

  14. Joan Callamezzo says:

    If he didn’t cheat on his wife why does he have to do any “real work in private”? Was Timberlake the source for this article because it’s just as problematic as his PR statement. He’s overrated, unattractive and has a huge ego.

    • Kebbie says:

      Jessica is the one always harping on about how pretty she is, I think she’s behind the “beautiful and intelligent” quote. Honestly, they deserve each other, they’re both the worst.

    • lucy2 says:

      Exactly.
      Like the last time this went through the media cycle, with his “apology”, if nothing happened, there’s no need for all this. They keep putting all this out there, when people already forgot!

      I think they deserve each other too.

  15. jenner says:

    Well it’s fun watching them drag this out in the worse way possible.

  16. Kebbie says:

    Why are they so intent on keeping this story alive?

  17. Sparkles says:

    She is in denial. She clearly isn’t ready to accept her husband probably is a chronic cheater incapable of changing. He must be a good BS’er to explain away those photos and videos.

    Dump him! There are actually men out there who DONT cheat on their long term girlfriends and wives! find one! Id rather be alone than be with a cheater like Justin!

    Also, he has such cocaine eyes and strung out grumpy face in so many photos. Who wants a guy like that around anyways!!!

  18. Ali says:

    I had a cheater tell me once that texts I read that very clearly showed a sexual relationship with someone else was just “rowdy banter”. So, yeah, natural charmer works, too.

  19. Andrea says:

    Kate Middleton 2.0.

  20. Sam says:

    Jessica Biel was so good in The Illusionist. Speaking of magicians, maybe one can make Justin disappear.

  21. My3cents says:

    Well she also dosen’t believe in vaccination.

    • GreenTurtle says:

      I know! How sad. The Measles-Mumps-Timberlake (MMT) vaccine is a real lifesaver. People like her are threatening our herd immunity against “natural charmers.”

  22. BendyWindy says:

    No comment on their BS, but I wouldn’t break my family up over an affair either. My husband hasn’t cheated and isn’t likely to, but he is my soulmate and my partner. We have four children and have built a life together. I’m not throwing that away because he boned some random.

    And I believe in unicorns..
