Jessica Biel Did NOT Get Pregnant To Save “Troubled” Justin Timberlake Marriage
Jessica Biel did NOT get pregnant to save her marriage to Justin Timberlake, despite a new tabloid rumor claiming a baby is her bid to rescue the couple’s “extremely troubled” union. The report began in the pages of In Touch, an outlet that’s been hilariously clueless when it comes to Biel and Timberlake. It’s the same magazine that once falsely alleged they brawled at a bar mitzvah, wrongly claimed he cheated on her with Olivia Wilde, and fabricated a number of other desperate, sensationalized and inaccurate reports.
This time, a so-called “insider” for the tabloid says, “There was a point earlier this year when Jess had decided to throw in the towel.” According to In Touch, the couple was contemplating divorce when Timberlake supposedly promised to have a child with Biel if she “stuck with him” during his recent world tour.
“And he kept his word!” declares the In Touch source. “Jess’ pregnancy really turned their marriage around.” Uh-huh. Here’s what actually happened: The magazine spent years spreading rumors about Biel and Timberlake breaking up. They did not break up, so the tabloid decided to use the recent revelation that they’re expecting a child as a way of again claiming the stars had been in trouble until very recently.
It’s simply not true, and insulting. Biel and Timberlake did not plan a baby as any kind of marriage-saving gimmick, a source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop.
