Justin Timberlake is back to work as usual on the set of Palmer, after being spotted holding hands with co-star Alisha Wainwright over the weekend.
As if nothing happened between him and his co-star, Justin was seen on the movie’s set in New Orleans, arriving at his trailer wearing gray sweatpants and a black sweatshirt.
The 38-year-old star was photographed hanging out at a New Orleans bar late at night. Justin and Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright looked especially cozy, and some might say they looked kind of flirty.
The candid photos that surfaced showed his 30-year-old co-star placing her hand on his knee. On top of that, the pair were also seen touching each other and appeared to be holding hands at one point. It appeared as if Justin wasn’t wearing his wedding ring, either.
According to an unnamed insider close to the situation, “There is absolutely nothing going on between them.”
Of course, the two co-stars weren’t hanging out alone. The source also says that Justin and Alisha “were out with all the cast, crew, makeup artists, and everyone was just hanging out in a social setting,” adding that the actor and actress “are just working together. No validity to any other rumor other than that they are filming together.”
Other sources have also expressed similar sentiments, saying that their hangout was “innocent” or that “there is nothing going on between them” and that it was just “a group of people hanging out.”
However, one source said that Justin “had too much to drink and got carried away,” and called the incident “inappropriate” and “something that would make any wife uncomfortable.” Perhaps he should have had some more bottled water between all those boozy drinks.
Neither Justin nor Alisha have addressed any of the rumors floating around about their recent behavior.
So, how has the rumors affected Justin’s marriage to wife Jessica Biel?
The general consensus is that Justin and Jessica are just saying “bye, bye, bye” to the rumors and moving on.
The couple, who have been married for seven years and share a 4-year-old son named Silas, have supposedly been “downplaying everything and trying to laugh it off.”
I’m willing to bet that Justin and Jessica’s marriage triumphs over the rumors.
As for the movie, a release date has not been announced yet. Justin plays Eddie Palmer, a college football star who recently returned home after spending time in jail. Alisha plays a teacher who catches the eye of Justin’s character.
