After photos of Justin Timberlake holding hands with his Palmer costar Alisha Wainwright went viral last month, Justin Timberlake has broken his silence on Instagram.

Justin writes, “I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family I feel it is important to address recent rumours that are hurting the people I love.  A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement – but let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my costar.  I drank way too much that night and I regret my behaviour.  I should have known better.  This is not the example I want to set for my son.  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.  This was not that.  I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer.  Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it.”



It was last month Justin and Alisha were hanging out at the Absinthe House bar, located in New Orleans.  A photographer from The Sun leaked photos of Justin holding hands with Alisha underneath the table.  According to a source, it was confirmed to Us Weekly that, “Several cast members were there and it was just a cast gathering.  Nothing remotely romantic is going on with Justin and Alisha.  The whole cast is shooting out there and like to hang out together.  They were very much in public and nothing inappropriate was happening.”
