As the youngest member of NSYNC, one of the best-selling boy bands of all time, Justin Timberlake became a heartthrob to millions of women of all ages all over the world. The talented singer and dancer further grew into being a sex symbol and was on several occasions named the sexiest man alive by magazines such as GQ and Cosmopolitan, which meant he was spoiled for choice when it came down to him choosing a partner.
As history tells, an appropriate mixture of good looks and talent opens the door for a star to get lost in the negative side of fame. However, Timberlake, who we can authoritatively say has an abundance of both ingredients, has been able to manage his affairs with women, not giving room for many tabloid-worthy headlines, and keeping the number of women he has been linked with to the barest minimum, in Hollywood’s standard.
Justin Timberlake’s Relationship Through The Years
The first lady Justin Timberlake dated from his long list of partners is singer Veronica Finn. Finn was 16 years of age and in the girl group Innosense while Timberlake, 17, was a part of NSYNC when their hookups began. Despite having conflicting schedules, the pair always found time to spend together and do things they loved like go to the movies or amusement parks like other normal teenagers. The couple was said to be deeply in love with each other which made it a huge surprise when they decided to part ways in 1998 after just a year and a half together.
In the early months of 1999, Timberlake began dating singer Britney Spears, who starred alongside him in the Disney variety television show, The New Mickey Mouse Club. During their time together, the couple enjoyed huge success in their individual careers and were always on the front page of one magazine or the other. The relationship lasted for three years before abruptly coming to an end in March 2002 for unknown reasons, although speculation had it that either party might have cheated on the other.
Before officially becoming an item with actress Cameron Diaz who he began dating soon after meeting her at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in April 2003, Justin Timberlake was linked to every woman he was seen or had worked with. They include Alicia Keys, Alyssa Milano, Staci Flood, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and Tatyana Ali. Some of these women have confirmed that they and Timberlake were indeed an item for a very short time while others have maintained that they were just friends who liked each other’s company.
With Diaz, however, Timberlake found comfort and stability although every other publication always had a rumor about them having parted ways. The two eventually called it quits in December 2006, around the same time he had been shooting the music video for “What Goes Around Comes Around” with actress Scarlett Johansson who he reportedly began hooking up with at the time although both parties never confirmed it.
Justin Timberlake’s next notable relationship was with actress Jessica Biel, who is best known for starring in Blade: Trinity (2004), The A-Team (2010), and Total Recall (2012). The pair reportedly began seeing each other in January 2007 after first meeting each other at the Golden Globes and then subsequently enjoying each other’s company at the events’ after party. In the following months, the new couple was spotted all over the place in different parts of the world, side by side in each other’s arms.
Everything looked rosy in their relationship until January 2011 when reports surfaced of Timberlake allegedly cheating on Biel with actress Olivia Munn. Amid the controversy, the couple stayed together before eventually deciding to break up in March that year. They reportedly ended things on a very good note and promised to remain friends.
During their break, Justin Timberlake starred alongside Mila Kunis in the raunchy romantic comedy, Friends with Benefits (2011). The two were subsequently linked with each other but Timberlake still had his eyes on Biel who he had continued to keep in touch with as the pair were each other’s dates to a few more public events. Things got a bit more serious when the supposed platonic friends were spotted on a double date with Timberlake’s parents. By December 2011, Timberlake proposed to Biel, and today, they are husband and wife. Justin and Jessica exchanged vows on the 19th of October 2012 at a ceremony in Italy.
