The hosts of “The Real” sound off on THOSE Justin Timberlake photos.
Over the weekend, The Sun published scandalous pics of the “Can’t Stop the Feeling” singer — who has a 4-year-old son, Silas, with wife Jessica Biel — holding hands with his “Palmer” co-star Alisha Wainwright at a New Orleans bar, and he did not appear to be wearing his wedding ring. The 30-year-old actress was also photographed placing her hand on his knee.
Additionally, the publication shared a video in which the musician is seen putting his arm around her waist.
Despite the controversy, an Us Weekly source on Saturday said the two are “just friends.”
“Several cast members were there and it was just a cast gathering,” added an insider who was at the bar. “Nothing remotely romantic is going on with Justin and Alisha. The whole cast is shooting out there and like to hang out together. They were very much in public and nothing inappropriate was happening.”
Wainwright’s representative also told the publication, “There is no validity to this speculation. They are working on a project together.”
On Monday’s live episode of “The Real,” hosts Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai and Loni Love — along with guest co-host Tisha Campbell — gave their two cents on JT’s drama.
“It makes me sad, because you know me — I always try to find the positive in the situation,” Tamera commented. “So, at first I was like, okay, I know when you’re doing a feature film, especially on location and for long periods of time, sometimes you become family. But that was just… To me, this is the thing. They seemed a little bit too comfortable together. Now, they weren’t alone. That doesn’t make it right.”
While Tamera said Timberlake, who was videoed drinking, seemed “really inebriated,” it “doesn’t make it right either.”
“He was more than lit,” Loni added.
Alleged cheating aside, Tamera was concerned about Justin’s well-being.
“He looked really sad,” she remarked. “And I think that’s what hurt me, ’cause I was like, ‘Yo, what’s going on?’ You know?”
Timberlake and Biel married in 2012.
