Justin Timberlake not only took home several awards from the 2013 American Music Awards Sunday night (Nov. 24), but he also gave a rousing performance of “Drink You Away,” accompanied by amazing band the Tennessee Kids.
But where was wife Jessica Biel? The internet was abuzz, with fans writing things on Twitter like:
“So I just want to point out that Jessica Biel isn’t there supporting @jtimberlake and I would 100% be there for him. That’s all.” and “Did you notice JT sans wife Jessica Biel AND his wedding ring? What’s up with that???”
Even radio station WVYB 103.3 out of Daytona got in on the speculation, posting a picture of JT on Facebook with the caption, “Is
it just us that noticed that Jessica Biel wasnt at the AMA’s last night
AND he wasn’t wearing his wedding ring?! Trouble in paradise?? We hope
Not that Biel and/or Timberlake owe any kind of explanation to Twitter, but Biel tweeted this last night, “I’m watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet.”
Just two days before, Biel was tweeting pictures from her new husband’s “20/20 Experience” tour, so we would imagine she’s been out on the road with him and perhaps wanted to take a night off?
Also, we would like to point out that Timberlake had his wedding ring on both before and after the performance. Sometimes wearing rings bothers guitarists — especially if you’re still getting used to it. He probably just took it off to play and then put it right back on.
