Justin Timberlake received a lot of criticism for his photos with Alisha Wainwright, but he seems to have a true follower who was willing to defend him. The former NSYNC bandmate, Joey Fatone, defended Justin arguing that "he looked like he was drunk."
As you may have heard, Timberlake was caught by the camera holding hands with his co-star Alisha Wainwright and people were really upset about that, since he is married!
Not only that, but he didn't wear his wedding ring at that time either!
While he generally does not address any drama and gossip about him, this time he did, turning to social networks to apologize to his wife for not thinking clearly while he was drunk.
Justin wrote in that moment in part: ‘… Let me be clear: nothing happened between my co-star and me. I drank too much. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. "
The long letter continued with the singer and actor apologizing to his wife for putting her in an embarrassing situation.
About that, Joey told HollywooLife that ‘I think what he published was legitimate. Anyone gets drunk. Your shit comes out the door. It really inhibits certain things. It looked like he was drunk. He was literally sitting there. That is what it looked like. That is what I thought. That's what I saw too. "
When asked if he approached his former bandmate after the scandal broke, Joey shared with the media that he sent him a text message ‘Like,‘ Hello, man, I hope everything is fine. I just say what's up "That's it,quot;
However, he admitted that Justin did not respond to his text message and continued saying that it has been difficult to keep in touch since the members are busy doing their thing.
