Insiders said the seven-year marriage is hanging by a thread after Justin, 38, was caught holding hands with co-star Alisha Wainwright, 30, pictured with Timberlake below.
Justin apologized to his “amazing wife and family” in a statement on Dec. 4, adding: “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better.”
“Jessica feels only a professional can help them communicate at this point, and her friends think she’s 100 percent right,” dished a source. “Jessica wants the marriage to work, but they clearly have serious issues to resolve.
She loves Justin, but she refuses to be humiliated like this!”
