If “insiders” are to be believed, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s marriage will survive after photos of him holding hands with actress Alisha Wainwright surfaced.

Timberlake and Wainwright are co-starring in Palmer, and photos of them in New Orleans show Timberlake sans wedding ring drinking and chatting with her on a balcony. And yes, they did look pretty handsy. When the images surfaced, rebuttals were issued with claims of “they’re just friends!” and “there is nothing to see here!” being issued from all corners. 

Wainwright and Timberlake headed back to the set in New Orleans Monday, and Biel was photographed in L.A. with an oversized pillow and Transformers toy for their son, Silas

On social media, the reactions came fast and furious. One observer wrote, “So a man can be seen holding hands with and having his thigh stroked by a woman who’s not his wife and it can be defended by claiming to be ‘just friends’ but a woman can be accused of being unfaithful without actual evidence and she’s guilty? Ok….,” while another pointed out that this isn’t the first time Timberlake has been caught with another woman: “First public post marriage incident 2014 I think…. backup dancer… hence we got man of the woods era.”
