And just like that, sources just revealed what Jessica Biel thinks of that whole hand-holding mess involving her husband Justin Timberlake and his co-star Alisha Wainwright.
Last week, The Sun dropped a major bomb on everyone: Justin was seen cozying up to Alisha, and she was seen resting her hand on his inner thigh. The photos were damning and the internet (+ One Tree Hill star Jana Kramer) has been dragging Justin ever since.
This whole time, Alisha's camp denied anything happened between them, and a few days ago, Justin released a statement of his own. In an Instagram post, he wrote, "I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people that I love/ A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my co-star." He also added that he "drank way too much," regrets it ever happening, and apologized to Jessica and his family for "putting them through such an embarrassing situation."
Hours later, a People magazine source shared how Jessica reportedly feels and why she's sticking with Justin. The source said Justin definitely "drank too much this time, but Jessica believes he didn't cheat on her" before adding, "She will stand by him."
And another insider gave some insight into how Justin is going to handle this. The source told the outlet, "It was good that he apologized publicly but obviously the real work he is doing is in private and hopefully this was just a bad drunken night of this type of behavior."
Whew. What a week.
