It's been a few months since the whole Justin Timberlake and Alisha Wainwright hand-holding saga went down at a bar in New Orleans, but it still seems to be a problem with Timberlake's marriage to Jessica Biel. It was recently reported that the two are going through marriage counseling, despite people believing that Biel has forgiven Timberlake and all is good. It's hard to tell at this point in time, especially as Biel was seen walking solo in New York yesterday. So what is going on between the two? And is everything ok?
Biel Seen Walking Solo Down the Street in New York
Biel was seen on Wednesday stepping out on to the street of the Big Apple by herself, bundled up in a black and white-patterned Prada wool coat and black leggings, with blue suede ankle boots and sunglasses.
The actress' public appearance comes two months after it was reported that the couple was in therapy. A source close to the two spoke with Us Weekly revealing, "They believe it's constructive for their relationship … he is trying his hardest to prove himself. Sometimes they'll have a great day together, and other days they argue. Justin knows exactly what Jessica wants to hear to relieve any stress."
Reports on Status of Their Relationship Conflicting
Another source, however, spoke to Entertainment Tonight and gave quite a different and conflicting insight into the couple's relationship.
"After Justin was spotted holding hands with his co-star, the couple took time to reconnect, spending much-needed quality time together," the source said. "Justin and Jessica love one another very much and weren't going to let this come between them, more so since Justin told Jessica he didn't cheat, and she believes him."
"The couple has put everything past them and has moved on," the source added.
The Couple Recently Seen Grabbing Coffee and Having Dinner
The reports would seem to favor that the couple is happy together once again, based on previous outings where they have been spotted. Most recently, Biel and Timberlake were seen arm-in-arm walking from their apartment in Tribeca to grab some coffee. "Justin and Jessica went for a stroll around their neighborhood," a source shared with PEOPLE. "It was chilly, but they looked cozy arm-in-arm. They were both in a great mood, smiling and chatting."
The couple was also spotted at the Hotel Bel Air in Los Angeles a month ago on a four-day vacation and seemed to be amicable with each other, at least at one of the dinners they shared at the hotel.
First Public Appearances Since Timberlake's Formal Apology
The dinner that the two were seen having at the Hotel Bel-Air was the first public appearance since Timberlake's formal and public apology that he issued to Biel. Interestingly enough, it was reported that Biel was the one who pushed for Timberlake to issue the apology in a formal manner to show people that there was still solidarity between the couple.
More is likely to develop on this story, but it seems that the couple is on the amends, despite some reports that say otherwise.
