Wendy Williams thinks Jessica Biel forced Justin Timberlake to issue public apology: 'It must be hell at home'
Wendy Williams addressed Justin Timberlake's recent apology to his wife Jessica Biel and family after being spotted getting cozy with his costar Alisha Wainwright last month, suggesting that the singer-songwriter was forced to issue the public statement on his spouse's demand.
"We do Hot Topics, that's our business," the 55-year-old talk show host said on 'The Wendy Williams Show'. "I forgot all about you, Jessica Biel, the co-star and the whole bit and now you're apologizing? It must be hell at home, honey!"
She added that the statement brought "more light to the fact your marriage must be in scrambles right now."
Leave it to Wendy to praise as well as criticize celebrities in the same breath. The pop culture expert whose marriage to estranged husband Kevin Hunter made headlines after their messy split earlier this year, called Jessica "very beautiful" and "a lovely girl" but said that she did not understand the chemistry between the 'Mirrors' singer and the 'Valentine's Day' star.
"They look good together, but I don't really understand the appeal of Biel beyond a look. I don't see her being able to dance to his music or drink all night with him. Maybe too serious for him," she said.
Photos and videos which were was taken on November 21, were originally posted by the Sun and quickly wewnt viral, sparking speculations of the singer, 38, cheating on his wife, 37. They showed Justin and Alisha taking a break from shooting their upcoming movie 'Palmer' and going for a midnight trip to a bar where they enjoyed some drinks on a balcony.
During their hangout, the 30-year-old actress was spotted stroking his knee before he grabbed her hand. Justin was spotted without his wedding ring during the outing in question and appeared to be unsteady on his feet as he put his arm around Alisha's waist.
After rumors of a possible extramarital affair started plaguing Justin's marriage and refused to die down, he finally addressed the matter on Instagram Wednesday, December 4, apologizing to his "amazing wife" for his regrettable behavior.
"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," he wrote in an extensive statement. “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better.”
“This is not the example I want to set for my son,” Justin added in his social media post. “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. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it."
