Justin Timberlake publicly apologizes for holding costars hand

A few weeks ago we were all gasping at the photos of Justin Timberlake holding hands and massaging hands with costar Alisha Wainwright while out at a bar in New Orleans.   Now comes the apology.

The father of one, 38, blamed alcohol for his lapse in judgment while on a night out in New Orleans, but insisted ‘nothing happened’ with his Palmer co-star, 30. An excuse that, if I were his wife, would upset me more.  That means you can’t be trusted to drink around a woman again? Grow up.

Timberlake added his behavior, ‘is not the example I want to set for my son,’ referring to his four-year old son Silas, his only child with Jessica Biel.

He went on to write: ‘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.’
