Los Angeles: Singer-actor Justin Timberlake has apologised to his wife Jessica Biel a week after pictures of him holding hands with his "Palmer" co-star Alisha Wainwright surfaced online.
Timberlake said he regrets his behaviour and will now focus on being the "best husband and father".
"I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumours that are hurting the people I love. A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment - but let me be clear - nothing happened between me and my co-star.
"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. 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," the 38-year-old musician said in an apology he shared on Instagram.
Timberlake and Biel, 37, got married in 2012 after five years of dating. The couple share one son, Silas, four.
