Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel finally, officially break up


FINALLY. At long last, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have finally split up. God knows how many times JT has screwed around on Jessica, and with God knows how many women. He tried to get with Mila Kunis, who wasn’t having it, but there was Olivia Munn and various backup dancers, and Amanda Seyfried certainly seemed up for it. TMZ’s source says that the breakup was a “pretty mutual decision … and both parties still ‘love and respect each other.’” Us Weekly’s source says: “It was mutual. Jessica is doing well.” Considering Jessica and JT released a JOINT statement, I don’t think we’re in for another debacle where, say, Us Weekly releases a story calling Jessica psycho and clingy and JT a cheater, only to have them still stay together.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are no longer a couple.

The two decided to end their relationship recently and “there are no hard feelings,” a source tells PEOPLE exclusively. “It was completely mutual and they both decided it was time to move on.”

The source adds that Biel is keeping her house in L.A. and she and Timberlake, who started dating in 2007, will remain friends.

Reps for the couple released a statement Thursday, confirming the split: “Addressing the media speculation regarding Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s relationship, we are confirming that they mutually have decided to part ways. The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.”

Timberlake, 30, and Biel, 29, were spotted together looking cozy as recently as the Vanity Fair post-Oscars party on Feb. 27.

So, JT is finally officially single again. You know Olivia Munn is probably already sexting him, thinking that she’s next in line to be his girlfriend. That being said, I doubt JT will go with Olivia for anything more than a fling – he wants a movie star. He’ll try for Mila Kunis again, especially given that they’re both single now. Don’t do it, Mila!

As for Jessica… well… I’m about to say something that may disturb some of you. But I’ve always felt that women like Jessica Biel and her BFF, Jennifer Garner, are the kind of women who won’t let their current partner go without a jumpoff in place. I think that’s why Garner hasn’t left Affleck – she hasn’t found his replacement yet. And it wouldn’t surprise me at all if, in a few weeks time, we start hearing rumors about Jessica with some dude, someone that she had waiting in the wings.

    I would not be shocked if she a had a lady in waiting

  2. Lem says:

    the chemistry and body language between these two is SO OFF. they never did look comfortable together

  3. jemshoes says:

    At last! It was just getting beyond pathetic for Jessica Biel.

  4. Merry says:

    I finally figured out what bothers me about her face! It’s the color of her lips! Her skin and her lips are the same kind of light pink-beige-y.
    And even when she does put lipstick on, it’s neutral-beige: she sort of looks like she doesn’t have lips at all!

  5. brin says:

    Well she’s had enough time to get a jump-off. Taking his mom to the Oscars was the final straw.

  6. annaloo. says:

    Omg..all I see is that nasty ass maskface from the Real Ho-wives of Miami. Wtf IS that thing???!

  7. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I hope she does have a jump off. Good for her!

  8. Tuatara says:

    The most boring couple in history. Even their break-up is boring.

  9. MourningTheDeathofMusic says:

    I know this isn’t a popular theory, but I think, deep down inside, JT is still remotely hung up on Britney. More so, he’s still stinging from what she did to him. So this has soured the rest of his relationships.

  10. Jackson says:

    Meh. She is irrelevant and he is an annoying tool that needs to stick to music and not contaminate good movies.

    @Merry – yes, I totally agree. She needs to use some lipstick/gloss with color in it. Somewhere along the way someone must have told her how great no-color lips look on her…except, they don’t.

  11. Jezi says:

    Here’s my take on this situation. I think Jessica is beautiful, smoking body but I think she was stifled with JT. She used to be out going and into sports. Which is the type JT goes for (Cameron Diaz), but JT seems to get bored after about 4 years of dating. That seems to be his relationship timeline, then he breaks up with the girl and moves on right away to his next conquest. He’s a serial monogamous. She seemed sad for a long time. In my opinion, I don’t see her jumping into another relationship too soon. However, I do see JT making a play for Mila Kunis. I so hope she doesn’t go there.

  12. Pix says:

    I hate Justin Timberlake–He’s such a smug prick. He ruins every movie he’s in and his face makes me sick. I hope Jessica Biel does have a jump off and I hope it’s someone hot. Or I hope JT gets with Olivia Munn b/c that snatch is annoying and gross, too. They deserve each other.

  13. Name says:

    He’s always struck me as the type who can’t get over his mom long enough to have a lasting adult relationship. She’s better off.

  14. Pearl says:

    I agree with @Mourning….

  15. JustBored says:

    I am glad it’s over. I like her and it seems as if he took away that joy and amazing spirit that she once had. There was always a light shining from her eyes before him. With him she just seemed dull and subservient.

    Hope she finds a nice guy who will appreciate her and bring back the joy to her eyes.

  16. Tiffany says:

    So. They break up and we still have to see this clown because they keep giving him parts. He is going to fake flirt with Diaz (she needs a hit as well) and try he damnest with Kunis (and she is going to laugh or school him, on camera). Justin, no one saw TSN because of you.

  17. spinner says:

    Well…I think they are both Gay & should stop pretending.

  18. meme says:

    @ jemshoes said it best

  19. Marjalane says:

    I’m with #12 up to the point of caring if Jessica Biel has a new toad waiting. Justin Timberlake IS a smug prick, and he may be a smug prick with musical talent, but that’s it. He can’t act and his pathetic attempts to come off as the uber cool guy are annoying. He looks like he’s sporting a head full of pubic hair.

  20. mln76 says:

    She needs to find a producer or director , It’s the only way she’s going to get work doing more than Valentines Day 7.

  21. Mimi says:

    I know that this is probably going to get a lot of eye-rolls but I’am still kinda rooting for a Britney-Justin reunion. I guess it’s the Louisiana girl in me but I so want to see Brit truly happy. And the last time I saw that was when she was w/Justin. Yeah, I know, kinda lame.

  22. Siren6 says:

    I think they broke up ages ago, but kept it quiet through awards season because JT was dying to get something for The Social Network.

  23. Flan says:

    When they just started dating, everybody was talking about her. Now she was not even invited to the Oscars, but showed up at an afterparty, desperate to look relevant.

    It does seem like he dates for fame.

  24. Quest says:

    JB has more balls than JT (not to mention muscles).

  25. grazi says:

    good for her! and his next gf will also deserve somebody better than him.

  26. Can says:

    He’s a climber. Don’t people get it?

    He dates women in the profession he wants to rise in who are – at the time – more popular than he, capitalises on their fame/popularity, sucks them dry and then moves on/throws them under a bus – whichever creates a rising star for him.

    Britney, Janet Jackson, Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel – and they all end up looking plain awful after any relation to him.

    He’ll probably be looking for a Oscar nominee/winner next.

    I’d like to hope that Miss Biel will now get her sexy back but I suspect the damage has already been done.

    There’s already one woman in Timberlake’s life: and that’s his mother.

  27. Alejandro says:

    It would be less pathetic for Jessica if she did have somebody, either man or woman, waiting for her in the wings but I doubt it. Add me to the list of thinking HE already has somebody new…like Mila Kunis. And no I don’t think she’s too good for him she dunped Mac as soon as her career took off.


    Justin isn’t a serial monogamist he cheats on every single one of his girlfriends. He just likes the comfort of having somebody there and of course the PR benefits of having a “steady gf” even if he’s boinking every cocktail waitress from here to Kalamazoo.

  28. Isabel says:


  29. nanster says:

    Meh – they’ll both have someone new by next week.

  30. sassenach says:

    He is such a douche. I know The Daily Mail is a rag but they have a story about how she threw him a surprise party and how cold he was to her.

    He did the same thing to Cam and even years after his break up with Brit he talked about her to get some publicity.

  31. garvels says:

    Jessica is going to be working with Gerard Butler very soon……..so maybe she will be stalking Kaiser’s Gerry.

  32. im awful says:

    Yes, FINALLY.

    I hope he finds someone strong enough to put him in his place and teach him how a woman should be treated. Basically, a challenge.

    I hope she finds someone who treats her well and elevates her. But, girl needs to realize she’s not an Actress, she’s a romcom girl or tv girl.

  33. Sigh. says:

    Rumors of her and her next co-star, Gerard Butts-ler, to keep her in the public’s eye in 3…2…

  34. Kaiser says:

    Garvels – I could see Biel trying to ride Gerard, but I don’t think he would be up for it, in general. First, she’s not his type – he likes them leggy and dark. Plus, for all of his faults, Gerry has proven himself to be uninterested in using a relationship with another celebrity for fame (Biel’s M.O.). Aniston tried it and failed with him.

  35. DorothyZbornak says:

    @David: My thoughts exactly.

  36. TG says:

    Seems we all collectively despise that toad and I am glad to know that others see a poser too. He is such a mamma’s boy. Why would he leave the music industry? I actually really like his songs, though I would never buy them on principal.

    And do you guys really like Britney? She has to be one of the sloppiest looking celebrities of all time. And that acne on her face is horrible to look at. I can’t stand JT but I can’t imagine he would ever want to be reminded of his time with her.

  37. Sam says:

    JT is an immature prick- period!

  38. garvels says:

    Kaiser-Good point. Mr. Butler doesn’t seem to play along with those well publicized onset romances. I do believe Ms. Aniston was somewhat frustrated that she couldn’t reel in the playful Scot.

  39. Audrey says:

    I have no idea what people see in either of them. That said, I think David comment #1 hit the nail on the head with Biel. I always thought she was a lesbian and this relationship was just show. Remember that photo of her on the football field? Showed Biel and another woman and the woman had her hand on Biel’s ass.

  40. serena says:

    I like Jessica so I hope she find someone better (sure there are a lot of guys better than JT).
    Maybe it’s like you said but maybe she was waiting, hoping that the problems would vanish and they would be happy again. Who knows.
    What I know is that he’s an extremely douche, liar and cheater.

  41. Sigh. says:

    Kais —

    I don’t think HE’LL condone a fauxmance (like you said, too short/”light”/NOT a model/etc), but that don’t stop HER people from “leaking” stories. They don’t have to be true, just circulated (unfortunately, some articles STILL refer to him and Aniston as “exes,” for whatever reason). She’s gotta hook up to remain viable (read stave off rumors of lesbianism/being a clingy famewhore)

    Keep your shank sharpened, and close…just. in. case.

  42. Lucy says:

    He is a climber as Brad Pitt was in the beginning of his career…

    ps: I would not be surprised at all if JT decided to come out of the closet…

  43. gloaming says:

    @ Kaiser

    Did you see The Daily Mail’s account of the circumstances of their break up?

    It’s absolutely painful to read.

    I’m embarrassed for her…….But he’s still a complete tool.



  44. skilo says:

    Mila for the love of God honey DON”T just DON”T. You will lose so much respect. You’re better than that girl you’re better than that.

  45. P.J. says:

    It’s annoying how celeb couples break up. They all issue the same statement, practically word-for-word: “We’re still friends, it was a mutual decision,” etc. What a load of bs!

    My take: He likes having a steady girlfriend but is not mature enough to settle down. Give him another 10 years!

  46. Kaiser says:

    Gloaming – Oh, JESUS. That Mail story is CLASSIC. I believe every word of it.

    Everybody should read that Mail link!

  47. Someone Else says:


    Thanks for the link.

    What an a$$.

  48. mln76 says:

    @Gloaming thanks for the link. I think JT is a douche but I have zero sympathy or respect for Biel. Could she be more desperate?

  49. Sakyiwaa says:

    well, of course. what took ‘em so long?

    @Lucy; puh-lease, what has BP got to do with this? he didn’t date more famous women than himself at any time. i mean which of them do you speak of, Juliette or Gywneth or Robin Givens or Jen?

  50. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    That link story is just all kinds of wrong on both ends.

    I am embarrassed for her too. MAn Jessica, get a grip!!

  51. Tvcon says:

    Mila is smart and won’t go near him. Now Olivia Munn on the other hand, she’s probably licking her chops but I think she is still seeing Matthew Morrison.

  52. Me says:

    Read the bitchy dossier Daily Mail has published on this one. I’m sure Kaiser will update her post :-)

  53. gloaming says:

    @ Kaiser. Sorry I didn’t send the link to you this morning. Was too busy…….
    You’d have had a field day with it!

    @ everyone ‘YEAH b*TCHES!’

  54. Wholesome1 says:

    Momma’s Boys are a drag. Time for a real relationship with an adult.

  55. Sigh. says:

    Just read the Daily Mail link —

    Yeeeeee-ahhhh…That story made her look like a delusional fool and him look (more) like an asshole.

    And why would you “remain friends” after THAT? An “independent” and “proud woman” would have dumped his ass before the party’s end.

  56. original kate says:

    jessica’s teeth look like they belong to someone else. why, why would she think that looks good? very bad chompers.

  57. DiannSteph says:

    Let’s recap:

    Mila Kunis, Justin Timberlake film “Friends w/Benefits” movie July 2010-Nov. 2010
    Mila Kunis drops Mac Culkin in January 2011

    Mila and Justin are inseparable at Awards Shows before the Oscars, all thru February 2011

    Jessica spent Valentine Day’s alone.
    Justin shows up on red carpet w/Mom at Oscar’s.

    Justin breaks it off with Jessica March 2011.
    (I don’t believe the “it was a mutual decision” stuff. That was to save face for Jessica, I think!)

    It’s ON with Mila Kunis. *speculation*

  58. Raven says:

    I can see why she is BFF with Jennifer Garner their both boring, vanilla and have a manly looking a match made in some bland boring hell.

  59. Lucy says:

    @Sakyiwaa: BP fame was an empty one only based on his looks back then.

    Juliette was an established actress when he dated her. Gywneth was starting to be noticed, but she came from a family in the show business. JA was at the top on tv (not saying bigger than him, but as popular and liked as he was)and he started getting more relevant roles when he opened a production company with JA and then followed by a relationship with AJ who is a good actress and daughter of a good actor.

    You might disagree, but it is just my opinion. That’s all.

  60. Megan says:

    She looks old enough to be his mother in that pic of her wearing a red dress. Like a nerd who took his mother to the prom. They’ve always seemed like a very odd couple to me. Justin just needs to be free!

  61. malina says:


    Good for them! This was such a weird and miserable relationship with no love… at least on JT side.

    And well, I can’t get over how irrelevant he is nowadays. He used to be at the top. Everything was so much easier back then – a pretty perfect virgin couple of him and Brit, there was a talented and skinny Xtina, bada*s Pink, boring Avril, sexy Shakira and almost no famewh***s (except for Paris, but she was one of a kind).

    Life was so much easier back then…

  62. guesty says:


  63. Zzzzzzzzzz says:

    At last. It’s been so painfully obvious that Jessica was clinging to JT as hard as she could and he couldn’t care less. Don’t believe it’s mutual; that’s just for her to save face. Think he’s got someone lined up already, JT rarely statys single for long and only ditches one girl when he’s lined up another. Mila Kunis perhaps? Think she’s too tough for him but who knows?

  64. Jean says:

    Somewhere, Blake Lively is genuflecting and thanking god for this opportunity.

  65. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Men don’t do floods of emotion well in private, never mind in a situation like that. He was probably completely taken aback and switched to testosterone auto-pilot.

    I don’t know what she was thinking but somebody should’ve gotten the hook out and yanked her when she started with the creepy shit about driving to his house…

  66. Fire says:

    No kidding Bill Hicks Is God! STFU, Jessica. “I stalked him into dating me.” What a desperate fool! I am SURE that over the course of their relationship he repeatedly clued her into the fact that she wasn’t “the one” (or that he wasn’t ready to really settle down) but she just kept hanging on.

    I know I am WAY in the minority here, but I like this guy. I think he is super talented. Haven’t really seen much of his acting on the big screen, but he’s f*cking hilarious on SNL whenever he hosts and he makes fun of himself – give him props for not taking himself seriously. He dressed up as a hot dog for crying out loud. I think Mila would be a great match for him. She’s spunky and would make him work for it.

    I also think Jessica needs to have SOME lip color when she puts on makeup. A nude lip is NOT a good look on her AT ALL.

  67. Madison says:

    It’s been pretty obvious for a while now that they had split and were waiting for the right time to let the public know, if jessica wants to stay famous her jump off better be an A lister or a big time director, producer.

  68. Anon73 says:

    i am so evily happy about this breakup, i don’t know where to begin !! ; -)

  69. Victoire says:

    I cannot explain why, but I never liked Jessica =(

  70. stevona says:

    Since when is the Daily mail a reliable source? Sorry I’m in minority on saying I don’t see Justin as a douche or any other inflammatory name . I also like Jessica too. I hope they both fine love in their next relationship.

  71. Fuzzy Cat says:

    Such entertaining posts on this thread :)

  72. normades says:

    @Madison: agree 100%, they have been dunzo for awhile and were waiting till awards season was officially over to call it.

    She didn’t even get to go to any awards season shindigs. She was getting the total shaft in this “arrangement”

  73. Amy says:

    I would not be surprised if Mila and JT end up dating for a few years. You say you think Jessica is the kind of girl that won’t move on unless she has got another eye in her sights… JT is the exact same way! There were rumors he was all over Biel before he and Cameron officially broke up. They were careful not to be photographed together and I remember Cameron and JT even got into an argument at some Hollywood party and Biel was there…

    Justin has been obviously making a play at Mila and now that Mila is probably interested (and single), he is going to try to have a go with her. Hopefully she sees the light and runs away!

  74. Oh The Reality says:

    You all are aware that none of you actually know these people, right>

  75. Newbie says:

    I didn’t like them. Truthfully, I liked him with Cameron Diaz. They seemed good together.

  76. John Wayne Lives says:

    wow *sigh* how surprising. I doubt Olivia will. She wanted to be, and was pissed that he lied to her about being single. Mila will, cause I think she already has. imho.
    And I agree that he is a climber and sucks his women dry.

  77. ADS says:

    @ No’1- Absolutely. So would not suprised if this were the case. Jess and JT had all the markings of an ‘arrangement’ or a couple who rather blatantly couldn’t look anymore disinterested in the other if they tried. Lol @ 73 who seems to not realise they are on a gossip website.

  78. echolocate says:

    I was too old to really know much about N’Sync when they first came on the scene, but I remember seeing the video for “Tearin’ Up My Heart” and taking it for granted that it was a gay boy band. While that song referred to “girl,” it had gym scenes, clothing racks and fashion photos, and, especially, JT’s scenes in the wifebeater on the bed, which brought to mind Andy Bell from Erasure for some reason.

    Whatever his motivations for his various romantic pairings, I think he’s a strategic jerk who makes sure that he gets the better end publicly of the situation when things end. Didn’t he brag about sex with Britney after they broke up? Even if she made mistakes with him, he went out of his way to humiliate her.

  79. Aqua says:

    “A joint decision” I call BS on that one.

  80. Nikki says:

    Definitely agree with most of you that JT is 1. a smug prick, and 2. a mama’s boy. I think he’s wanted out of this relationship for a long, long time and just didn’t have the balls to do it until now. I always felt like Biel was way more into it than he was. She definitely seemed like a possible future It girl when they first got together, but that’s clearly not the case now. But Mila Kunis could be the next It girl, and JT is obviously interested, so we’ll see what happens…I like Mila and hope she steers clear, JT has always come across a self-absorbed douche, and he’s notoriously rude to fans too. Asswipe.

  81. jesa says:

    I think Mila could handle him just fine. maybe he’s bored with girls that are too easy. Mila would demand that he ends things with Jess before she had anything to do with him. She’s got some balls. Maybe that’s the attraction.

  82. Dana M says:

    He is going after Mila for sure. I love her. Hopefully she will not put up with his BS.

    And Mila maybe into him, hence the timing of her break up too.

  83. Snarky_Pup says:

    I have always thought that Jessica has the most amazing body. I hope she will be happier now. No one needs a cheater and IMO, she can do better. She should have dumped him years ago and is probably regretful that she did not.

  84. d says:

    i still dislike him intensely him for not having janet jackson’s back in the revealgate or whatever it was called.

    i hope biel gets her self-respect back and does what’s right for her.

    timberlake’s got weak/douchebag man eyes/face. don’t know what the attraction is .

  85. MyKosmo says:

    JT seems like a commitment phobe. Yes, he is faithful, for a time, but that always runs its course, and then its onto the next woman. She will be fun and new for a while, but then that will become ordinary and slowly sink into moving on once again. Personally, I don’t see his charisma, but he doesn’t seem to make it into the long term category….that, we can say for sure!

  86. ordinarygirl86 says:

    Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel finally, officially break up

    Translation: Justin found somebody better than Jessica Biel to be his girlfriend. And by better I mean prob better looking and more famous then she is…

  87. lcat says:

    Lucy #59: Brad Pitt is far more talented and attractive than any of the women he has dated. I Don’t really see how he would be climbing. None of them were that much more famous than him. Also, if you have a great career why would you want to date someone with a crappy career? People generally like to date people on a somewhat even footing with them. It makes sense that he would go for Jen, who had an equally great career and AJ who is a good actress (from time to time).

  88. Dana M says:

    Thx for the daily mail link. Some good stuff.

    JB is so desperate- just like we all assumed.
    Probably pretty needy too. Bet he’ had been trying to dump her for quit sometime now.

    Mila watch out!

  89. mln76 says:

    @#59 Brad has nothing to do with JT. They aren’t similar in anyway.
    Brad and Juliette met on the set of a TV movie and dated for 2 or 3 years neither one of them was famous in the beginning. It’s true that for a very short time JL became more successful and he was known as her boyfriend but that wasn’t a very long time.
    Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t a known actress until Se7en. She became an ‘IT’ girl due to her beauty and the off-screen relationship she had with Brad. Her association with him brought her fame not vice versa.
    As for Jen Aniston she admits she had her manager introduce her to him, and though she was famous and a TV it girl when she became associated with BP her fame doubled.

  90. jc126 says:

    Finally, the barnacle is scraped off the side of the boat JT.

  91. JenJen says:

    She mine as well go back were she came from and find a wealthy man, since she has been crying she can’t make any money in Hollywood for years. Of course I am not saying she NEEDS a man to support her, if she would get a job other than trying to be in movies. I think her blabbing to the press that she could not pay her bills was a sure sign this relationship was all show and she was a hanger-on to him. And she branded herself as a “loser”, duh, not winning.

  92. Camille says:

    According to E news and their ‘sources’, JT was the one who did the dumping and JB is apparently devastated. This was all just a matter of time, I’m amazed these 2 dragged things out as long as they did.

    I hope JT doesn’t go anywhere near Mila. Mila is far, far, far too good for him.

    @mln76 89#: You nailed it. 100% correct. :)

  93. Sue says:

    I don’t like Justin but he check out of the relationship a long time ago and Jessica was the one hanging on to it and she look like a fool in the process. I mean if people looking at pictures can see that Justin check out of the relationship then what was she smoking that she who was living it could not see it.

  94. MrsOdie2 says:

    I do not buy the gay rumors AT ALL for either one. Just because a woman is buff and athletic, doesn’t mean she likes women. Jessica and JT were crazy into each other and it was so obvious at a Vanity Fair Oscar party four years ago that his recent ex, Cameron Diaz, FLIPPED OUT on both of them in a very public and embarrassing way. I think that like many romances, this one just fizzled. It happens.

  95. ADS says:

    @78 Very true. Not only did he humiliate Britney he used their break up to promote himself when he first went solo. Going on record about the relationship of course when it suited him. Interestingly never spoke about the relationship when they were together. As far as I know also hasn’t spoken out in support of her in regards to her problems. It seems he is one of the ‘protected’ species of celebrity as he never really gets called out and has continuous favourable press.

  96. DiMi says:

    I think this man is gay, gay, gay, gay, gay. Come out of the closet already, we can all see you hiding in there.

  97. Sue says:

    ADS:@ “As far as I know also hasn’t spoken out in support of her in regards to her problems” Why should he Britney is not his responsibility and he not obligated to make a public statement and what singer hasn’t used their breakup for a song.
