Report: Justin Timberlake Abandons His William Rast Clothing Line


Justin Timberlake


The 'Suit and Tie' singer is rumored ditching his joint clothing line with good buddy Trace Ayala, hot on heels of his partnership deal with Tom Ford.

Justin Timberlake is reportedly saying goodbye to William Rast, the clothing line he launched with best pal Trace Ayala for Target in 2005. Sources tell New York Post that the husband of Jessica Biel is still involved in the brand, "but by the end of the year, he won't be anymore."

William Rast is known for its premium jeans. It has released several collections during New York Fashion Weeks but allegedly hasn't had any show since 2010. It's said the company's products could still be found on the racks of JC Penney and at discount outlets like bluefly.com.

"Not a lot of retailers wanted it," a source explains the store's reluctance to sell it. "Because the perception is [Justin's] not involved, so why would anyone want to wear it?"

A spokesman for the clothing line says, without denying Timberlake's exit, that the "Bad Teacher" actor is "eternally" connected to the brand because it's "a combination of Justin's grandfather's name and Justin's best friend's grandfather's name."

Meanwhile, JT himself is busy promoting his comeback album "The 20/20 Experience" which is expected to have a sequel later this year. He has also teamed up with designer Tom Ford to create a collection of clothing inspired by his album which has first single called "Suit & Tie".
