A representative for Justin Timberlake's co-star Alisha Wainwright has shut down any speculation surrounding the pair after pictures of them emerged looking cozy together.
In shots obtained by The Sun over the weekend, the "Cry Me A River singer," who has been married to Jessica Biel since 2012, was spotted holding hands with actress Alisha during a night out in a New Orleans bar.
Justin, 38, and Alisha, 30, are currently co-starring in football movie, Palmer, about a former sporting star who returns to his hometown after a stint in prison in a bid to get his life back on track. It's being shot on location in New Orleans.
The candid images show Alisha putting her hand on Justin's knee over his ripped jeans. An eyewitness said, "They were smiling and laughing. At one stage he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee. She then gently started stroking his leg. Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands."
Justin was previously nicknamed "trousersnake" due to his links to a string of high profile women before he settled down with Jessica, and revealed in a TV interview last year that—before he was married—he had hooked up with a Spice Girl, though he declined to say which one.
But despite what these new pictures seem to show, a source told E! News that "there is absolutely nothing going on between them. They were out with all the cast, crew, makeup artists, and everyone was just hanging out in a social setting. They are just working together. No validity to any other rumor other than that they are filming together."
Alisha's rep today told Cosmopolitan: "There is absolutely no validity to this speculation."
Nevertheless, we don't imagine Jessica Biel, who is mother to the couple's son, Silas, four, is going to be too happy about the touchy-feely display.
The pair have been dating since 2007 and married in 2012. They recently attended tequila brand Casamigos' Halloween party together, with Jessica hilariously shading her husband by dressing up as him during his N*SYNC days—complete with curly wig.
