All The Reasons We Think Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Might Be Headed For Divorce

I’m well aware that you guys hate it when I speculate on celebrity marriages ending — looking at you, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner! – but I can’t be alone with my suspicions about Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel any longer. I’ve stayed (sort of) quiet for as long as I could, and now I need to show you all the evidence of their possibly impending divorce that I’ve been mentally archiving for months now.

1. They Were On-Again-Off-Again

To start with, I’m really skeptical of a couple that’s been dating for a long time, then breaks up, and is engaged within a couple months of getting back together. To me, that suggests that the relationship broke up initially because one partner was ready for commitment and the other was shying away from it. But that doesn’t mean that the noncommittal partner wants to be completely single, so in the cases I have in mind, after being single for a bit, they cave to the marriage pressure just to get the person back into their lives.

I have no idea if this reflects JT and Jessica’s experience or not, but their relationship timeline does conform to the one I just discussed. They dated from May 2007 to March 2011, a little under four years, before breaking up. There isn’t a clear date for when they reunited, although it was presumably in June or August, when they were seen publicly together ‘as friends’. But regardless of timing, Justin proposed to Jessica just a few months later, in December 2011, and the two were married in October 2012.

2. She Wasn’t At The AMAs

Just a year after their wedding, rumors started that the marriage was on the rocks after Jessica was a no-show at the American Music Awards, which Justin attended. Sure, they’re not the Grammys or the Golden Globes or anything, but I’m pretty sure that being a plus-one to fancy award shows is second on the list of benefits to being married to Justin Timberlake. (Number one is clearly ‘being married to Justin Timberlake’. Simple as that.)

Her absence was conspicuous enough to start speculation that she was staying home to conceal the evidence of a pregnancy before they were ready to tell people, but it’s five months later and we see neither baby nor bump, so what was the deal.

3. She Knows It’s Weird She Wasn’t There

It’d be one thing if these two had their own system figured out and didn’t realize how odd it was that they didn’t get photographed out together very often, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. While the AMAs were airing, Jessica apparently noticed a bunch of people were asking where she was, and she responded via her own Twitter:

Right but why? If you’re watching anyway, it sounds like you didn’t have anything better to do, and you didn’t even bother to come up with an ‘I’m sick’ excuse. Super weird.

4. He Wasn’t At The Oscars

Honestly, I couldn’t even believe my eyes when I saw Jessica Biel sitting by herself at the Oscars this year. I mean, her skipping out on the 2013 AMAs was one thing, but the Academy Awards? There is no more legit party in the entertainment world, I feel like, and you’re just gonna miss it? Without even an excuse? What is going on here — am I a crazy person? You get street cred just for showing up at that thing, and there’s no way that Jessica wasn’t given a plus one. 1. She was presenting and 2. C’mon, it’s Justin Timberlake.

And before you ask — no, he didn’t have a show that night. I know that because I looked it up at the time. Not only was he not performing that night (March 2nd), he was actually on a multi-day break from his tour (from February 27th to March 4th), so he was presumably super available. WTF.

5. He Extended His Tour

Speaking of that tour, Justin recently added on more dates to it, even though he’s been out traveling since November 2013. With the new dates, he’ll be on the road until December 2014. Every concert so far has sold out, so I can understand wanting to really milk that, but being away from a spouse for over a year when the two of you have been married for less than two has to put some serious strain on a relationship, right?

6. Jessica Is Producing A Couples Therapy Show

As if this cry for help couldn’t get any louder, Bravo just announced that Jessica will be producing a new ‘couples therapy style reality series’ for them called, heart-breakingly, Last Chance. Here’s the synopsis:

“Two exes have the ultimate opportunity to give their relationship one last chance through a series of social experiments over the course of 30 days. The couple will reunite and be pushed to their relationship limits under taxing scenarios – including returning to the scene of one their most difficult, uncomfortable and contentious times, playful events and emotional conversations to determine their fate once and for all. Will they re-kindle their romance or is their flame out for good?”

Two questions. 1. Is this just a word-for-word description of her experience in her own relationship? And 2. Do you think she’ll have Justin on the show for their very own televised Last Chance?

    • Really?

      I also love it, it’s kinda stupid but i like it because it makes me laugh hard…..LOL People kept saying this couple won’t last since 2007 and look we’re in 2014 and they are still together.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      It’s kind of my specialty.

  • dala

    stop it all ready!!! she have work to do and him too!!! you already write it many time and still they are together.

    1. they were together long and it wosnt break up but they had time break which justin had to figure out if they have future.(says jessica)

    2. they dont have to be together on every award. if she was sick you thing she would be teling the world when they prevent the privacy so hard both!!! jessica wanst even on people choice award and still justin thank her and they are still together!!! they go on barbados for jessica birthday too!!

    3. he didnt perform that night but if you dont no…he cant just be on concert that night…he cant show on concert 5 minut before concert…they have too prepare everything and rehearsals, soundcheck…you alone write that he had 2 days before concert so they have to practice and prepare everything. especially when they had long pause!!! and if you didnt notise its justin show and he is boss so he has too direct everything!!!

    4. maybe you should looking for pictures that jessica come on some justins concerts…so they are together!!

    5. it dont has to be about them…it woud be like you would say that every song what justin wrote has to be about jessica!!! justin wrote many song about things and one song for example about story another couple what he heard!!!

    so stop wish someting so horrible for another people!!!

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I’m not wishing it! I’m making inferences based on my observations.

  • J_Doe5686

    I’ve read in Blind Gossip that she was in rehab. The clues pointed right at her.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Innnnteresting. Did it say for what?

    • J_Doe5686

      I think it was for pills.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Oh boy. I’ll have to keep my eye out for more blinds.

    • Mhmm

      Because blind items are 100% true? Also Alexis YOU ARE wishing divorce on someone when you write the same article twice. Disgusting

    • J_Doe5686

      You replied to J_Doe5686 not Alexis. The post is 15 days old, time to move on!

  • Candi

    Private couples don’t have to tell the public everything!! Stop!!

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I don’t disagree with you, but do you really consider Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake a private couple?

  • Cool

    People kept saying this couple won’t last since 2007 and look we’re in 2014 and they are still together.

    When will those people get a life? Sad.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      You don’t need to put my name in quotes. It’s definitely Alexis.

    • anonnnn

      This made me LOL

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I’m glad!

    • Cool

      Why? You must be ashamed of your name that much!

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I’m assuming that you understand quotation marks and are thus using them correctly — so thanks for implying that my articles are actually good!

    • Cool

      Not really, i personally use quotation marks to express my opinions from the bottom of my heart. So when i say bad i actually mean it. How sad is that for you?
      And i find it funny how you turned the talk from Justin and Jessica into quotation mark? That explains much.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      That’s very sweet…and yet also, not how quotation marks work.

      For any questions about how I feel about Justin and Jessica, please refer to the 800+ word article right above this.

    • Cool

      Oh i know very well your feels about Justin and Jessica, all those funny articles written by you saying they are getting a divorce and the other articles esp. the one with the title (I’m Confused: Why Are Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Smiling In Their Wedding Photo?) And this one (It’s Not Too Late For Britney Spears To Crash Justin Timberlake’s Wedding To That Chick From 7th Heaven) LMAO…I’m not gonna assume but i’m believing that you’re a Justiney hard shipper after all, it’s too obvious that you just like every fan of justiney dreaming and just wishes JT leaves Jessica and go back to Britney, and your negative, untrue, pointless & worthless articles about Jess/JT are the proof of my words, i feel sorry not only for you but for all those dreamy justney fans out there because you have no idea what kind of guy JT really is…..

      I’m not with Jessica side nor Britney, i’m just a JT fan and been his fan since MMC so let me explain things straight for you, shall we?
      You don’t like JT with Jess and want him to go back o Brit, right? (Your articles says a big YES to that Q) So let us assume that JT will leave Jess one-day, you really think he would go back to Brit? Really? You think JT’s high morals & even his ego would allow him to go back to Brit after she having many BFs & many relationships? After getting married twice and having 3 kids? Also she has been on rehab after drugs & alcohol and all that…..after CHEATING ON HIM!!!!
      You really think JT would discredit his clean image by going back to Brit and be the babysitter of her kiddies? LOL…No chance in hell.
      And if he forgot about morals this time after leaving Jess, do you really think Brit would still have a chance? Because there are millions of hot young & fresh women out there dreaming to have him because he’s Justin freakin’ Timberlake! So, keep dreaming.

      I’m still waiting for that day when you move on, get a life & write one positive article about JT/Jess. You should know that your negative articles about them changes nothing because as i said, JT knows very well that he’s too good for Britney.

      And if you think this answer and the whole Briney thing have nothing to do with this, then read your articles again.
      Only Justiney hard shippers like you would write those kind of articles and try hard to make JT/Jess look like enemies.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      You have a fun habit of copy-pasting and reusing the exact comments that you post on other sites via Disqus, so maybe we’ll both admit our failings and move on?

      Also hate to burst your bubble, but I didn’t write the piece on Britney crashing his wedding. Right in the byline, my friend…

    • Cool

      Why yes actually i’m a lazy person and i don’t want to write things twice that’s way i copy paste my words. Do have any problem with that?

      And sorry for some reason i thought it was your article but apparently it’s your friend Jenni Maier. But still you prefer Brit & JT over Jess/JT or else… if you’re writing those articles about them getting a divorce for no reason then i think you really have a big issue, bigger than Jenni Maier’s issue.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Don’t you dare call Jenni Maier my friend. She’s my coworker, and she’s a monster.

    • Jenni

      There is nothing written here that is untrue.

    • Cool

      I wrote that long answer after reading one of your articles about JT & Brit. Read it again because it was for you and i’m too lazy to write it twice. Lol

    • IMO

      @deppfanatic:disqus Sorry I needed to interject. Justin too good for Britney? I know Justin can be an arrogant cocky sh!t sometimes, but that would really be a bold thought coming from him. I don’t remember seeing Britney’s name in this article so why are we talking about her? Sounds like you are just anti. But while on the subject, yes – Britney and Justin are probably never going to happen just as much as “fetch” isn’t. However, as someone who also watched JT since the MMC I can say that there was no one more perfect for Justin than Britney.This is why articles and blog postings like the one mentioned will continue to be written. The world also saw it, and will never be over it.

  • Elizabeth Aspen

    They are one of those couples I see and go ‘Wha . . ? They make no sense together. Mulder & Scully they are not. I see no chemistry between these two.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Like a dry dry desert.

  • IMO

    I wouldn’t “wish” divorce on anyone. And heck, I don’t even think its all that weird that they dated a long time, broke up, got back together and engaged really fast (HELLO – Enter Prince William and Waity Katie). BUT – I DO however think that this couple is HELLA odd. I don’t even think they’d have on-screen chemistry if they were in a ROM-COM together. But then again, you could probably blame that on JT’s acting skills (or lack of). I’m not saying he doesn’t love her or that they should divorce. I’m saying if the only thing a lyrically romantic guy like JT can think of while thanking his beautiful wife on stage is “dirty dishes” (all of this while she’s at home watching in her PJs), then someone’s gotta be in the dog house.

  • Julia

    Well, Jessica Biel is now in Norway with Justin. Guess your wrong!

    • Kay

      Alexis Rhiannon is more dangerously correct than a lot of people realize. That marriage is not what many people believe. Maybe if the media would stop purposely putting false images out there that they are SOOOO in love, this couple could stop putting on a charade and JT can stop torturing himself. Remember, Hollywood has been helping to produce and/or cover false marriages for decades now, which is one of the major reasons why a lot of those fictitious nuptials end up in divorce. @alexisrhiannon:disqus your observations are very good despite the flack that others are trying to give you and you are not the only one that has observed the same things. It’s not about wishing that someone else’s marriage ends in divorce, it is about looking past the smoke and mirrors and seeing things for what they really are. I know this conversation is old but it is a public one nonetheless and is meant to be open for discussion to whomever wants to participate, whenever they want to. So, why try to put a time frame on responses?
      @alexisrhiannon:disqus, thank you for not being bullied into silence and know that there are some of us who see exactly what you see…

    Ya’ll are crazy! They are still together and all of you are whinning because they haven’t been photographed together.Ya’ll crying becase jessica and justin haven’t had a photo taken together. With their high profile can you imagaine what would happened with a picture of them together? No one has given them any privacy. Then their is Alexs…. …. You’re a gossip monger which I’m sure these “blogs” (Alexis… notice the name in quotes?) It’s none of our business and I’m sure they are flying under radar just so they don’t have to get into contact with someone like you!

  • Oliver

    O.K. I’m done… this blog is boring me. All you guys just want to make everything negative. You know if you smile more often, give positive feed back to friends or strangers (hey I like your blouse). Life is so much easier. Dealing with negative and rummored BS just wears me out. Good bye and good luck to all!

    Finish each day
    and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and

    new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered
    with your old nonsense” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
