TAB: Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson Feuding Over Justin Timberlake
“Hitchcock costars Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson are locked in a cold war over Jessica’s husband, Justin Timberlake,” reports Star. The mag claims that Timberlake and Johansson had a “sizzling fling” five years ago when she starred in his “What Goes Around… Comes Around” music video, and now Biel is allegedly “worried that ScarJo may be scheming to get him back!”
Um, Biel and Timberlake just got married, and Johansson is dating a French journalist named Romain Dauriac. Anyway, a supposed “insider” tells the tab, “Jess and Scarlett are smiling for the cameras, but behind closed doors the claws have really come out.” The so-called “source” tattles, “Scarlett told Jessica that she landed a really great guy, but then baited Jessica by saying, ‘Keep an eye on Justin; he’s trouble!'” Saucy!
This purported “spy,” who was apparently present for this very private (alleged) conversation, claims Biel then attempted to get the dirt on Johansson’s supposed fling with Timberlake, but Johansson “played dumb.”
“She acted like she didn’t know what Jess was talking about and told her to stop being paranoid,” adds the insider. Uh-huh. Star goes on to allege that since the supposed showdown, Biel has “forbidden Justin to have any contact with his former flame.”
No, she didn’t. None of this ever happened. Biel and Johansson got along wonderfully while promoting Hitchcock, and were spotted laughing and chatting about Biel and Timberlake’s honeymoon at the film’s November 18 premiere in New York. There’s absolutely no drama between them — nor was there ever. A source close to the situation called the tab’s tale “silly.”
