Setting the record straight, Justin's representative insists that there is nothing romantic going on between the 'Friends with Benefits' actor and actress/fashion designer Ashley.
Ever since he broke up from longtime girlfriend Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake has been linked to a number of single ladies in Hollywood. Most recently, the "Bad Teacher" actor was rumored to be hooking up with Ashley Olsen. His representative, however, was quick to deny the dating report.
When setting the record straight, Justin's rep also shot down rumor that Justin might be romancing Olivia Wilde. "Justin is friends with both Olivia and Ashley," the rep told E! Online. "He is not romantically involved with either. He is single." A friend of the singer-turned-actor added, "Justin and Ashley have a ton of mutual friends. Yeah, they were hanging out. But there is nothing going on."
News of Justin's possible hook-up with Ashley was brought up by Us Weekly. In its latest issue, the publication claimed that the two single stars have been inseparable in and around New York City, noting that they were spotted together at the Greenwich Hotel, a "Saturday Night Live" afterparty, two Broadway shows and a polo match.
The magazine went further by citing a so-called inside source who confirmed that Justin and Ashley "are hooking up." Another source was also quoted as saying that the "SexyBack" singer and the former girlfriend of Justin Bartha are "really trying to keep it on the down-low."
Justin himself recently opened up that he hasn't been in contact with ex-girlfriend Britney Spears for years. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the "Friends with Benefits" actor confessed, "We haven't spoken in 9 or 10 years." He explained, "We were two birds of the same feather - small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn't make any sense."
The 30-year-old went on to share, "I won't speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person. I just don't think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers."
As for his most recent ex Jessica, Justin dubbed her as "the single-handedly most significant person" in his life. He elaborated his remark, "In my 30 years, she is the most special person, O.K.? ... I don't want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me - for instance, her."
