Reps for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel broke last week that the two were no longer an item after being together for over three years. Now, new details on why they broke up are coming to light. Us Weekly is the latest tabloid to report what went wrong in the relationship, noting that Timberlake hasn’t been happy with being in the relationship with Biel for two years:
“[Justin] had been aggressively trying to end things” with the actress, 29, since the Golden Globes Jan. 16, one source close to the singer tells the new Us Weekly, out Wednesday. What’s more, the pal adds, “he hasn’t been happy with Jessica for close to two years. You’d be surprised at how soon the love was lost on this one. Justin said he was miserable.”
Timberlake’s pal went on to say that Timberlake suddenly confessed shortly after his birthday that being with Biel just “didn’t feel right” and did not want to take it to the next step and marry her. Us Weekly goes on to say that the confession by Timberlake “blindsided” Biel, not expecting to hear that from her lover.
While Us Weekly says Biel wanted the two to get married, a conflicting source by People says that the two never discussed getting married. “[Biel] wasn’t even thinking about marriage,” a source close to her said. The tabloid even goes on to say that Timberlake himself is upset about the break-up. Two different angles are being portrayed here, which one do you believe?
