  • Jessica Biel allegedly made Justin Timberlake publicly apologize to her on Instagram, according to Us Weekly.

  • Justin apologized on Instagram last week after he was photographed getting cozy with his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright.

Hello and welcome back to the saga that is Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's relationship! If you know anything about Justin and Jessica, it's that they typically stay drama-free in public. But I guess all those years of repressed drama came to a head last week when Justin was caught by paparazzi getting cozy with actress Alisha Wainwright while filming their new movie, Palmer, in New Orleans. Justin held Alisha's hand, Alisha had her hand on Justin's thigh—it was all very sus.

Following the massive storm those pictures caused, Justin ended up making a Notes app Instagram statement to explain himself and apologize to Jessica and his family for the trouble he caused. Justin denied that anything happened with Alisha, and called his actions a "strong lapse in judgement."

“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 that I love,” Justin wrote in his Instagram post. “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my costar.”

Justin continued, adding, “I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. 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.”

But wait, there's a new development! According to an Us Weekly source, Jessica actually had to force Justin to make his public apology, if you can believe. Honestly, I would too—I'm not gonna just sit there and let my man make a fool out of me!

“Jessica encouraged Justin to put out his statement on Instagram because she felt embarrassed by his actions and wanted him to take accountability,” the source said, making a point to note that the couple are “still united.”

FWIW, People reported last week that Justin and Jessica were reportedly "working through this," so I'm guessing Justin's apology was the result.
