‘I drank too much’: Timberlake responds to cheating rumours

Justin Timberlake has issued an emotional statement after he was spotted ‘getting close’ to his co-star Alisha Wainwright a few weeks ago.

The Cry Me a River singer admitted that he had a ‘lapse in judgement’ and ‘too much to drink’ on the night in question.

However, he stressed that absolutely nothing happened between him and fellow actor Alisha, despite photos of them holding hands. 

Justin was also pictured without his wedding ring on the night.

He apologised to both his wife and son in the statement.

He wrote, “I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family I feel it is important to address recent rumours that are hurting the people that I love.”

The actor continued, “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement – but let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my co-star.”

“I drank way too much that night and I regret my behaviour. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son.”

Justin shared, “I apologise to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that.”

He added, “I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it.”

Justin and Jessica have a four-year-old son Silas.

The couple have been married since 2012.
