There are few things in this world that can take away from the unconditional love and total respect we have for Justin Timberlake. We’ve been through a lot — the cornrows, NippleGate 2K4, his decision to marry someone else — and looked past it all.
But hearing that his old restaurant Destino was shut down because of poop… We’re just not sure we can get onboard.

According to a lawsuit filed by the former restaurant’s partners against their insurance company, Destino was shut down in 2013 after ruptured plumbing “spewed human waste” on the walls of the NYC eatery.
The 33-year-old’s restaurant was allegedly twice flooded with “raw sewage” caused by the illegal piping, the lawsuit claims. The insurer reportedly denied Destino’s claims, including a request for $275,000 for repair and unspecified damage.

We don’t know why we’re so confident, but we have a feeling this will work out for JT and his partners. After all, what goes around… comes around. The insurers will be crying a river (of sewage). Dirty poop…
Fine. That last one might’ve been a stretch. We’re done — bye, bye, bye.
Page Six first reported news of the lawsuit.
