He may be one of music’s most beloved golden boys, but that doesn’t mean Justin Timberlake is totally immune from trouble.
The Cry Me a River singer landed himself in hot water this week when he snapped himself voting in the US presidential election in his home state of Tennessee.
Alongside a picture of himself posing in a polling station, the singer wrote: “I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote!!! No excuses, my good people! There could be early voting in your town, too.”
After sharing the image on Instagram, the 35-year-old was reported for violating a new Tennessee law which prohibits voters from using phones for any purpose while voting.
Yesterday, the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office released a statement saying it had been “made aware of a possible violation of election law” and that “the matter is under review by the D.A.’s Office”.
But luckily for Justin, the office seems to have since changed its mind as Local Memphis has reported that the D.A. will not be reviewing JT’s case.
In a second statement, D.A. Amy Weirich said: “The statement released earlier today by my office regarding Justin Timberlake and an investigation was incorrect and was released without my knowledge.”
“I am out of town at a conference. No one in our office is currently investigating this matter nor will we be using our limited resources to do so.”
Sounds like Justin won't be spending 30 days in jail after all!
