(Gray News) – Justin Timberlake is out with a public apology to his wife Jessica Biel.
The singer and actor was seen holding hands with co-star Alisha Wainwright a few weeks ago. The two are currently filming the drama “Palmer” in Louisiana.
“I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people I love,” Timberlake said on Instagram.
“A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better.”
Timberlake and Biel have been married since 2012.
They have one child together, 4-year-old Silas.
“This is not the example I want to set for my son,” Timberlake continued in his post. “I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be.”
