Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel Settle Lawsuit Against Tabloid Publishing False Stories

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have settled their lawsuit with a tabloid that falsely claimed he was getting flirty with another woman and their marriage was in trouble.

“The article was based on an unfounded report regarding Justin Timberlake’s alleged behaviour at a club following a performance in Paris, to celebrate a birthday and also included a number of purported statements improperly attributed to Jessica Biel, which heat now understands had never been made by her,” a statement read in court said. “The Defendant regrets any embarrassment caused to the couple and unreservedly apologises to them.”

Justin and Jessica‘s reps told JustJared.com, “Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are very satisfied with this categoric retraction of what was a false and unfounded story, together with the comprehensive apology from Bauer Consumer Media, the publishers of heat magazine, as read before the High Court this morning. The couple will not be making any further comment in relation to this matter, but will not hesitate to take similar legal action if false allegations regarding the state of their marriage are repeated.”

    How about not printing ANYTHING about them, ever. Give them every ounce of privacy that they are asking for…PLEASE!
