A good distraction? Justin Timberlake made a trip to the studio to record new music on Thursday, December 19 — almost one month after he was spotted holding hands with his Palmer costar Alisha Wainwright in New Orleans. “Back at it,” the 38-year-old pop star captioned a photo of himself in a white T-shirt and jeans with headphones on.

Naturally, most fans were excited for some new bops, but some were curious if he was planning on writing an emotional ballad to his wife, Jessica Biel, after he was involved in the sticky situation. One person wrote, “Yes. We are all here for it!!!” while another echoed, “WE’RE READY.” A third person chimed in, writing, “Hope you’re writing ‘Cry Me a River’ apology songs for being a giant douche to your gorgeous amazing wife.”

Just a few days earlier, the Tennessee native — who shares son Silas, 4, with his wife — left some flirty comments on the 7th Heaven alum’s Instagram video. Perhaps he was trying to get back in her good graces? “Need gift ideas for the yogi in your life?? I thought you might. My @gaiam gift guide is up on @amazon,” the 37-year-old captioned a video of herself in workout clothes. Justin left two heart emojis and one heart-eyes emoji underneath the snap.

The brunette beauty has been keeping busy ever since her husband was with Alisha, 30, at a bar in New Orleans. During their outing, the costars were spotted acting flirty, and the Florida native had her hand on his leg while they were chatting.

On December 4, the “Rock Your Body” crooner apologized for his behavior on social media. “I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people I love,” he said. “A few weeks ago, I displayed a strong lapse in judgment — but let me clear — nothing happened between me and my costar.” Justin admitted he “drank way too much” and he couldn’t believe he put his family in an awkward spot.

Even though the dad of one was remorseful for his actions, Jessica “pushed” him “to make a public statement,” a source told In Touch exclusively. “It was necessary for his image, but more importantly, another step in saving his marriage. He still has a lot of work ahead of him.”

The Limetown actress is sticking by her man … for now. “Just because she’s wearing [her ring] doesn’t mean she’s not mad at him,” a second source told In Touch. “Jessica feels totally humiliated by Justin and still hasn’t forgiven him.”
