"He hid it for years." Justin Timberlake, who was arrested for drunk driving, had a drinking problem

Justin Timberlake, who was arrested yesterday for drunk driving, has had a long history of drinking problems, PageSix reports, citing music industry insiders.

"It's no secret. Everyone knows about it. He has real problems with alcohol and illegal substances, and he hid it for years," the source says.

Another insider notes that Timberlake has been sober for some time, has lost weight and is living a healthier lifestyle ahead of the launch of his Forget Tomorrow world tour.

Media reports that the police officer who detained Timberlake for drunk driving did not recognize the musician. "Justin said under his breath, 'This is going to ruin the tour.' The cop said, 'What tour?' Justin said, 'World tour.'

Justin Timberlake was at a party at the hotel. After he left it and got behind the wheel, he ran a stop sign, which the police noticed and began to chase him. The singer tried to escape, but was eventually stopped. Police officers conducted a sobriety test, as a result of which Timberlake was detained. The singer was also asked to take a breathalyzer, but Justin Timberlake refused to do so. He later left the station after his bail was posted.

The scandal with Timberlake has caused a stir online. For example, he was reminded of his speech at the Brit Awards in 2007, when he addressed someone from the stage and urged them to stop drinking. "Stop drinking. You know who I'm talking to. I'm talking to you. Stop drinking, you'll become disgusting," he said. Many then decided that he was talking about his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears: literally a few days after this, the singer had a nervous breakdown due to addiction, during which she shaved her head bald. Later, she ended up under the guardianship of her father. Now, people are writing online that karma has caught up with Timberlake. Incidentally, the singer himself later commented on this speech and claimed that he did not mean Britney.

The singer's fans are also trying to get her old song Criminal back on the charts.

Britney herself, for whom her fans have been very worried lately, previously spoke about her relationship with Timberlake in her memoirs. According to her, she was pregnant, but the musician convinced her to have an abortion because he was not ready to become a father. After this, Timberlake was criticized online, which is why he was rumored to have problems in his marriage with his wife Jessica Biel, and he also had to postpone his planned return to the stage. Later, Britney tried to apologize to him on Instagram*, but Justin did not accept them, which aggravated their conflict.
