Justin Timberlake Breaks Silence After Holding Hands with Co-Star Alisha Wainwright

Justin Timberlake is addressing the photos of him and Alisha Wainwright holding hands for the first time.

The 38-year-old actor took to Instagram on Wednesday (December 4) to release a statement saying that “nothing happened” between him and his 31-year-old Palmer co-star and to apologize to wife Jessica Biel for his actions.

“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 I love,” Justin wrote. “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement – but let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my costar.”

Late last month, Justin and Alisha were spotted getting cozy as they hung out at a bar together in New Orleans. Shortly after the photos were released, a source close to Justin said that their hang out was “completely innocent.”

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

Justin 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.”
