Lately there’s been a lot of chatter about Total Recall actress Jessica Biel, and her R&B crooning husband Justin Timberlake. For the past couple months, the celebrity couple has been battling the constant divorce rumors, as the media keeps hinting toward ‘trouble in paradise’. But why?
Biel and Timberlake haven’t actually been seen together publicly for quite some time. However, its not just the public moments where the paparazzi are breaking their necks for a picture of them walking down a street. Its the big events, and the most recent fire alarm went off this week.
On Wednesday, Jan. 8, the “Suit & Tie” singer showed up at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards without his wife. According to US Magazine, Timberlake the singer did thank his ‘beautiful wife’ during his acceptance speech when he won the award for ‘Favorite Male Artist’. But, she was definitely a ‘no-show’.
“Thank you! I would like to thank Ellen for all the personal inspiration and the cookies — bakes a hell of a cookie,” Timberlake, said of Ellen DeGeneres, who he sat next to. “No, I’d like to thank my parents for continuing to instill in me that no dream is too big. I’d like to thank all the fans who voted. I’ll take it — people’s champ, I love it,” he continued. “And I’d like to thank my beautiful wife for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dish washer. It goes a long way — fellas, you’re welcome!”
While this could be just an innocent absence, this isn’t the first time Timberlake has showed up to an award show event alone. This is actually the second time in a row that he’s had to fly solo, because Biel didn’t attend the American Music Awards in November as well.
However, US Magazine also reported back in November that the 31-year-old actress did explain the ‘missing in action’ moment on Twitter.
I'm watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet.

Although her excuse was quite evasive, it was an excuse. But, Hollywood Gossip shares alleged details of about their marriage from a different perspective. Its also been said that the two can’t come to amicable terms with certain aspects of their marriage, and inward opposition is beginning to show on the outside.
OK! Magazine reports that a source close to the couple was able to sum up their opposing views with a brief statement. “Before they wed, Justin promised Jessica they’d try for a baby,” the insider alleged, “but then he decided to put his energy into touring instead. Jessica can read between the lines … she feels like a widow, and one of her closest pals has said she was the ‘loneliest housewife in Hollywood.”
Could this be the real reason for Biel’s ‘no-show’ moments? Only time will tell.
