Right after Thanksgiving, we told you guys that there was a rumor floating around that if Jessica Biel threatened to leave Justin Timberlake, he would marry her. The deal was that Justin didn’t really want to get married because he thought “marriage would hurt his career,” but if push came to shove, he’d get shoved, I reckon. Then, right before Christmas, we let you guys in on the word on the street, which was that Justin proposed to Jessica at a ski resort in Wyoming. And today, just a few days after New Year’s, I’m here to tell you that Us Weekly is making it official with an exclusive:
After a series of breakups and makeups, JustinTimberlake and Jessica Biel have finally decided to get married!
Several insiders tell the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday) that the couple of four and a half years became engaged in late December.
Timberlake, a six-time Grammy winner, popped the question to Biel, 29, in the mountains of Jackson, Wyoming. “Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place,” one insider explains.
After a brief three-month split in 2011, Biel made it clear that she wanted to spend her life with Timberlake, 30. “When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step.”
Another Timberlake insider adds that he’s “never been happier” with the New Year’s Eve actress. “He knew it was the right time to propose.”
“But Emily, if this magazine has the exclusive, why did you add that little ‘maybe’ up there in the headline?” Well, I’ll tell you why. Because I don’t buy it. Or, ok, I could possibly be talked into buying some of it. I could believe that these two are actually engaged, and that they did have that conversation about taking the next step. What I don’t believe is that Justin is as happy as this article makes him out to be.
Ok, think about how many times Justin and Jessica have broken up. Now think about how miserable they so often look while they’re together. And now go ahead and think about all those stories where Jessica is just way too clingy and weird. Do you foresee a happy marriage for these two?
It just pains me, that’s all. I’m not trying to be negative, and if their relationship is actually incredibly different than everything we’ve ever seen from them for the past four years or so, then that’s great. Then congratulations! But if the media is right with all of this, then it hurts my heart that an individual as beautiful and wonderful as Justin Timberlake is seemingly getting trapped in a marriage to crazy ol’ Biel. I believe in true love, you guys, and the way I see it, true love doesn’t involve stalking and strong-arming.
