Earlier this week, Jessica Biel scaled Mt. Kilimanjaro.
No matter what you think of the actress' skills or her seemingly dour public demeanor, this is an astounding accomplishment, one undertaken to draw attention to the global water crisis.
Despite the feat and the message, though, Biel can't climb above the celebrity gossip fray. As soon as she (and Emile Hirsch and Isabel Lucas) reached the top of the mountain, new reports surfaced that her relationship with Justin Timberlake was over.
There's not much to the latest rumor. It's being spread by Hollyscoop.com, which simply states Timberlake had planned on accompanying Biel on her trip to Africa. Alas, he did not.
So, where is the sexy singer? In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, sources say. What does this prove about his relationship with Jessica? Nothing.
This isn't the first time insiders have claimed this pair is no longer together. In September, reports linked JT to Rihanna, a dream hook-up that never came close to materializing.
Is it really so difficult to believe that Justin and Jessica are simply a normal, boring couple? Must "journalists" continue to create controversy between the two, simply because there's no actual public drama to write about?
Sadly, it seems that way.
