After nearly three years together Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have split. A mutual friend of the couple says that Timberlake told friends, “It’s over,” and that he ended it for good – over the phone. I thought celebrities only texted their breakups? Times are a-changin’.
While no reason is given for the breakup, rumors are increasingly pointing to Timberlake’s close relationship with Rihanna – the two worked together on Rihanna’s last album and are said to be ‘working together’ a lot lately.
The mutual friend reveals that Biel is in “severe denial and won’t accept” the split. The breakup must be even more difficult for Biel since she had been feeling that the relationship was headed towards marriage – and children. Rumor had it that Biel had been wanting to have a baby with JT saying that motherhood ”is a rite of passage for a woman.”
But some think the breakup could be temporary, maybe because the volatile pair have called it quits before. “There’s no way of knowing if it’s a firm breakup, because with them it’s so hot and cold,” the friend says.
