Jessica Biel’s grandmother-in-law is spilling the beans on the actress’ nearly two-year marriage to Justin Timberlake; Sadie Bomer, Justin’s grandmother, recently told The Sun, “They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it’s hard going. I’m sure when it’s right to have children they will, but not now.”
Timberlake and Biel have been married since October of 2012, though they dated for five years before their engagement.
Rumors about the relationship have followed the couple since they became an item in 2007. The two have been notoriously private about their lives together, since the beginning of their courtship. Break-up rumors and cheating scandals covered front pages of magazines almost daily.
Though elaborate and completely false stories about Hollywood A-listers constantly run rampant, there was actually some truth to the rumors that the pair weren’t quite as happy as they always appeared to be. In 2011, after nearly four years together, the couple officially called it quits, saying that they “wanted different things,” rather than the fact that they weren’t happy.
Other sources cited Justin’s affair(s) with his Friends With Benefits co-star, Mila Kunis, and Daily Show correspondent, Olivia Munn, as the reason that the pair were splitting, although those claims were never proven to be true.
However, later that year, Biel and Timberlake were once again spotted together, and after that, all bets were off – the two actors were official again by October, spotted several times out and about and looking happier than ever.
Sadie denies the rumors that the two are on the rocks currently, however.
“They do love each other dearly,” Bomer says. “But they are apart so much it’s going to be hard going for them. I think Jessica finds that really tough. She’s on her own a good deal,” later adding, “If he’s not coming back at night that puts a strain on things, of course it does. It’s hard to keep it all going but you have to have faith to keep it all going. I have faith in them and I believe they love each other dearly but I know they need time together.”
