5 Curious Facts About Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel's Relationship
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have been married for five years and from their social media posts, it sure looks like things have been going very smoothly. Fans of the couple regularly get to see adorable pictures that prove that this duo is only growing stronger.
But there are a few strange things about the couple's relationship. Let's take a look at some of them below.
1. She 'stalked' him
Justin and Jessica reportedly met through mutual friends and got to know each other at a Golden Globes after-party in 2007. After giving him her number, sources revealed that he did not immediately call her.
During Justin's birthday years later, the actress gave a speech in which she admitted that she drove to the singer's house when he did not call her the next day.
Someone who was at the party reportedly told DailyMail that Jessica was emotional when telling the story and joked about "how she virtually stalked him into going on a date with her."
2. She knew she was going to marry him much earlier on in the relationship
In an interview with James Corden on The Late Late Show, Biel said:
I have this email that is really funny that I sent to my producing partner Michelle [Purple], and it's literally like, 'OK, I can't make that meeting so I have to cancel, also I know I will marry this man, you can't tell anybody but your husband.
This was obviously not based on physical chemistry because she explained to Corden that during those early months, there was not a lot of physical contact because Justin was on tour. "We were just chatting on the phone for hours. So, we never really kissed for a very long time," she revealed.
3. The many cheating rumours
After rumours that JT was involved with his Friends With Benefits costar, Mila Kunis, the couple split for a while. However, Kunis was not the only one he was rumoured to be involved with. Other women he was linked with while he was dating Jessica include: Rihanna, Kate Hudson, Lindsay Lohan, Olivia Munn, Olivia Wilde, Scarlett Johansson, and Ashley Olsen.
Of course, Justin denied all these and seemed very determined to show the world, via his social media, that he and Jessica are completely and totally in love.
4. Surprise party gone wrong
In 2011, Jessica organised a surprise party for Justin for his 30th birthday. According to an insider, Jessica gushed about her love for her man in an emotional speech. When it was time for Justin to say something, he yelled "yeah b*****s," totally ignored his woman's loving words.
According to the source, "Justin's reaction was almost disrespectful. He just laughed it off."
5. He didn't want to get married
Justin Timberlake's grandmother, Sadie Bomar, has been pretty vocal about her opinion that the relationship between the singer and actress was not as perfect as they make it out to be.
In 2009, she told Daily Mail that while Jessica was very excited about getting married, Justin was not ready. He was focused on his music and was putting his energy into making it work. "Justin does his own thing and he isn't ready to marry just yet," she said.
A source, who happened to be one of Justin's friends, reportedly agreed with Sadie. He told PEOPLE that Justin felt guilty about stringing Jessica along even though he had no plans to get married. "It was making her crazy, and it was making him hate himself," he said.
While all these reports (most of them unconfirmed) make it seem like Jessica was more keen on the relationship than Justin was, it would be unfair to judge the couple based on this. Especially considering how much effort the both of them put into convincing the public that everything is great.
