To the public eye, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel look nothing short of couple goals, from their cute videos in the car to Jessica even dressing up as JT in his NSYNC days for Halloween, these two were never a couple to receive bad press and so, it shocked fans when the footage of the 38-year-old appeared online.

But now, US publications are reporting that it wasn't long after the press started publishing the news, that Jessica urged Justin to make a public apology. Having felt "embarrassed" by the photos and footage she asked him to take responsibility for his actions on social media.

"A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement," the post opened. Continuing he said:

"Let me be clear, nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behaviour. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son,' he continued.

"I apologise to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it."
