It’s probably a little too early to say we told you so, but as someone who’s been telling you for months that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel might be heading for divorce, I’m not super shocked to hear that there are claims JT was getting a little cozy with one of his touring singers.
Be suspicious all you want, but artists having relationships with their backup performers is a known thing. Just look at Britney Spears, Madonna, and Jennifer Lopez! They all ended up hooking up with their dancers, and why wouldn’t they?? You basically have a wall of hot, talented, fit humans dancing behind you, so if anything’s going on in your personal life, all you have to do is turn around and pick one out to make eyes at. Which is supposedly what Justin did, at least according to Star. Not only do they allege that he crossed a line with one of his touring singers, but they even have a name — Zenya Bashford.
According to them, the two of them were seen dancing super close and getting handsy at a club in Paris:
“It was definitely more than friendly. They were dancing in a way that no married man should ever dance with someone who isn’t his wife. Justin’s behavior with Zenya is unacceptable.”
So like the waltz? The rumba? The salsa? Which dance should you never do with someone who isn’t your wife?? I bet it was the salsa, you cheeky bean. But just as Star has me convinced that some hanky-panky went down, they back up off it, making it sound like there’s no way anything could happen, because Jessica keeps such close tabs on him.
“Jessica knows that she’s up against dozens of women every night while Justin’s on tour — especially women who want something out of him — so she makes sure he texts and calls her daily when she can’t be there in person. Jessica’s no fool; she knows she has to keep an eye on Justin.”
That seems pretty damning in itself, that she doesn’t feel like she can trust him, and feels the need to micromanage him…but bottom line, it seems like there’s no actual proof that anything untoward happened. Yet.
“Despite Jessica’s suspicions about her husband’s life on tour, she’s never had proof that Justin has been unfaithful.”
Okay, so I may have jumped the gun a little bit. But guys, this is how it starts, so remember where you were in this moment so we can all swap stories later on about where we were when we first realized that JT+JB might not = 4EVA.
