Justin Timberlake Spotted Holding Hands With Co-Star Alisha Wainwright
Justin Timberlake was photographed holding hands and his co-star Alisha Wainwright.
The "Cry Me a River" singer, who's been married to wife Jessica Biel since 2012, sparked cheating rumors this weekend after photos published by The Sun show him hanging out with Wainwright on the balcony of a New Orleans bar. The two star as lovers in the upcoming football movie Palmer.
In other images, the actress is even seen resting her hand on Timberlake's knee.
"At one stage he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee. She then gently started stroking his leg,” an eyewitness told the website. “Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands.”
The 38-year-old was also reportedly spotted without his wedding ring that night and sources say the actor had been "drinking heavily and was unsteady on his feet."
However, despite the fact that the photos seems to suggest we have another cheating scandal on our hands, a source told E! News "there is absolutely nothing going on" and that the co-stars "were out with all the cast, crew, makeup artists, and everyone was just hanging out in a social setting."
Another insider offered the same explanation to People, stating there is definitely nothing romantic going on between Timberlake and Wainwright and that the PDA was "completely innocent."
"The video may look a way, but literally it was nothing," the source revealed. "Like come on, they’re on an open balcony in New Orleans and he’s famous. It was nothing."
As of right now, neither Timberlake or Biel have addressed the photos, but a rep for Wainwright responded to the infidelity rumors, also telling People, “There is no validity to this speculation. They are currently working on a project together. Members of the cast and crew were all together.”
