Justin Timberlake's public apology tour continues, this time in the comments section of Jessica Biel's Instagram. The 38-year-old singer left some loving emojis on his wife's latest sponsored post. It's been three weeks since Timberlake was photographed holding hands with co-star Alisha Wainwright and he's still getting heat from fans. Timberlake's flirty comment was met with multiple eye-rolling emojis from Instagram users, a few "doghouse" comments and one person who wrote, "you just look more and more guilty."

Biel, 37, has not commented on Timberlake's night out with his Palmer co-star — but he has. The actor publicly apologized to his wife of seven years and their 4-year-old son, Silas.

"A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar," he wrote on Instagram on Dec. 4. "I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better."

Privately, Timberlake is said to be making amends as well. Us Weekly reports he invited his wife to set in Louisiana.

"Justin has told Jessica to come down to New Orleans while he is shooting [Palmer] so she can see for herself that nothing is going on between him and Alisha," a source claims. "Jessica plans to visit him there."

The magazine's insider says Timberlake and Biel are "planning to go out together."

People magazine reported the couple plans to "work through this. It was good that he apologized publicly but obviously the real work he is doing is in private and hopefully this was just a bad drunken night of this type of behavior."

Another source confirmed to People that Biel "is standing by" her husband amid his misstep.

"Obviously Justin drank too much this time, but Jessica believes he didn’t cheat on her," the insider claims. "What’s most important to her in life is her family and being the best mom to Silas. She’ll never break up her family over something like this."
