I know. I know, you guys, there’s no need to tell me that what I’m saying is blasphemy. I know that. But I’m not getting this information out of some vague quote from a supposed ‘insider’ or a ‘source close to the couple’ — I’m getting it from my very own eyes noticing things and my very own brain trying to puzzle out the meaning.
Maybe they’re a happy couple and I’m reading into this, but how come we hardly ever see them together? I know that Justin has a busy tour schedule with the 20/20 Experience, but I’m not talking about them not being spotted running out for coffee and a gluten-free muffin in the morning or whatever. I’m talking about big events that they should both have time in their schedule to attend.
Events like the American Music Awards last November. Justin showed up solo, and everyone said the reason Jessica didn’t come along was because she was home pregnant. They said she was just starting to show and that she didn’t want to get the rumor mill spinning. (Sorry Jess.) But then I we see her presenting at the Oscars this past weekend, and she’s very much non-sperminated. There is no baby in that bump. There’s not even a bump in that bump.

And before you say maybe she had the baby a while ago and already got her body back — nope! I thought of that too, but there’s a photo of her above in a literally midriff baring top at an event last December. There’s no way.
And speaking of the Oscars, let’s talk some more about that. Where was Justin? He does movies, and he’d be more than at home in that crowd (and on that stage!), but he was nowhere to be seen. And I hear what you’re saying — he was probably on tour that night! Of course! But nope! A quick trip to Wikipedia shows that JT had concerts on February 27th in Boston and on March 4th in Fort Lauderdale, but nothing in between. Meaning he was not only free on March 2nd, Oscar night, but enjoying a long weekend. Just…apparently not with his wife.
The only events that these two have been spotted at together are few and far between. They hit the Runner Runner premiere in matching tuxedos in September 2013 and the GQ Men Of The Year dinner together in November, but there were many more events in between where they were seen separately. Is it possible that their marriage is bottoming out after only a year and a half? (They were married October 19th, 2012.) Yeah, probably. That’s a pretty decent run in Hollywood, especially considering that the two of them broke up once in 2011, a move that they confirmed in March, only to get back together in June of that year, with Justin proposing months later in December.
I’m not saying this is definitely the case, just that the signs are all there — including the persistent rumors that the marriage is on the rocks because of Justin’s refusal to start a family, long periods spent away from the relationship and on tour, and supposedly wandering eye.
I don’t know about all that, but I do know that nobody turns down a plus-one opportunity to the Oscars with someone they love. It’s the OSCARS.
