Justin Timberlake may be famous for bringing sexy back.
But multiple reports, and even damaging news photos, now allege that the beloved singer may have brought a sexy woman home with him this weekend.
And that woman was not his wife.
In photos posted by The Sun that have since gone viral, Timberlake was out in New Orleans on Thursday night with Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright!.
These pictures depict the singer and the actress on the balcony of The Absinthe House, a Big Easy bar on that city’s famously raucous Bourbon Street.
They are rather explicit and, as some are speculating, also rather telling,
Wainwright was spotted in the images with her hand on Timberlake’s knee — and they were also covertly seen holding hands under a table… with the artist appearing to NOT be wearing his wedding ring.
Timberlake, of course, has been married to Jessica Biel for seven years.
They have a son named Silas and have often come across as one of the more stable and content couples in Hollywood.
Just consider these anniversary tributes from the superstars to each other back in 2017.
Just under a year ago, however, we started to hear grumbling that a divorce could be nigh for the couple, although obviously there’s been no paperwork filed in the ensuing 11 months.
The Sun reports that Timberlake and Wainwright were talking and drinking in the aforementioned bar at around midnight and were smiling and laughing together.
There’s also a video.
It appears to feature the singer placing his arm around the actress’ waist and it also appears to feature Timberlake looking a bit unsteady, presumably due to extreme alcohol intake.
Here is a recent photo of Alisha Wainwright:
She and Timberlake costar in the drama Palmer, which is about a former college football star who goes back to his hometown after a stint in prison.
The actress has also enjoyed roles on Criminal Minds and Lethal Weapon before landing her breakout role on Freeform’s Shadowhunters.
She likes to box and is good friends with Michael B. Jordan.
Just this past June, Timberlake gushed about his wife while delivering a speech at the 2019 Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York City.
“To my wife, who is here tonight and who has given me the greatest gift of love,” Timberlake said, adding at the time:
“Our son is 4 now, and he’s dope too! I’ve written so many songs because of that that I’m so proud of and I just …
"I’m extremely humbled. I hope that I can represent this award for all of you."
Biel. meanwhile, paid an emotional tribute to her husband earlier this year after he wrapped up his Man of the Woods tour.
"I would say that I’m so proud of you but I feel like that’s the understatement of the century and that somehow that I take ownership to what you’ve done this past year and a half,” Biel said in an Instagram video backstage at his concert in April.
“I just am in absolute awe of you every night to see you up there in your glory, doing what you’ve been put on this Earth to do."
And Biel concluded this spring:
You make my heart burst with joy and love when I see you doing your thing, baby. I’m your No. 1 fan, I love you.
