Justin Timberlake has denied rumors he's dating Jessica Biel, insisting she's just his best friend.
Justin Timberlake breaks his silence, sets the record straight on the persistent rumors he's dating movie beauty Jessica Biel.
Denied dating Biel, Justin insisted she's just a "very dear friend of him". On her joining him on his "FutureSex/LoveShow Tour", the singer explained, "She truly insisted that she came with me on tour. I don't know how to say no to a pretty face. But it wasn't really a good idea. This time I'm putting the machine before everything else. Jessica met up with me in Manchester, but for Paris I told her categorically no."
Insisted that for the time being, he was only interested in the next stop of his "FutureSex/LoveShow" tour, Justin said, "This tour is very important for me. I'm doing it really seriously so there's no question of playing sweethearts."
Becoming single again following his split with Cameron Diaz, Justin was highly publicized, mainly for his love life. He once also romantically linked to Scarlett Johansson, a rumor he claimed as not true.
