Justin Timberlake took to his Instagram account on Dec. 4 to write up an explanation and apology about the shocking photos that showed him holding hands with actress Alisha Wainwright during a late night outing in New Orleans on Nov. 21.
Justin Timberlake, 38, is finally speaking out about holding hands with his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright, 30, on Nov. 21 and he’s admitting it was all “a strong lapse in judgement”. The singer, who has been married to wife Jessica Biel, 37, since 2012, shared a message he wrote to his Instagram page on Dec. 4 and explained exactly what happened during the outing. “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,” his message began. “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse of judgement – but let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son.”
Justin went on to issue an official apology in the heartfelt 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,” he wrote. “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.”
