Fresh of his split from long-term girlfriend Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake appears to be amply taking in his stride his newfound freedom. He and Cameron split last month amidst speculation about the state of their relationship’s end. The pair who had been dating up until recently since 2003 finally addressed the whispers and rumblings with confirmation of their split in a joint statement.
“We have, in fact, ended our romantic relationship, and have done so mutually and as friends, with continued love and respect for one another,” the pair said. The two at the time said they usually prefer not to comment on their relationship, but due to the speculation and inaccuracies they felt prompted to issue the statement.
It has been an exciting several months for Timberlake leading up to the split and since. He released the critically acclaimed “FutureSex/LoveSounds” featuring smash hit “Sexy Back”. He has just launched his “FutureSex/LoveSounds” tour and his features in the newly released film, “Alpha Dog” to good reviews.
Justin Timberlake might find himself with his hands full from the look of things. It was Scralett Johansson who was his choice for the past weekend at the Super Bowl in Miami. “They spent the whole weekend together,” an insider tells In Touch Weekly. “They were dancing and whispering in each other’s ears. They were having a really good time together,” the source added.
Rumors that the two might be dating surfaced little after Timberlake and Diaz announced their split after a three-year relationship. Johansson starred in Timberlake’s latest video for “What Goes Around … Comes Around,” which debuts this week. Diaz was even said to be jealous of the younger Johansson during the video shoot.
“(Cameron) could not believe he went behind her back to put her in the video. Cameron was very jealous of Scarlett,” Us Weekly quoted a source close to Timberlake as saying a month ago. The two were seen together before shooting the video at the after-party for the premiere of Timberlake’s new movie, “Alpha Dog.”
This weekend however, Timberlake met up with Johansson and they spent the night “talking, dancing, holding hands” and looking all cozy says Page Six. “Then, as they left through the back, Justin was leaning against the wall and Scarlett came up, leaned into him and did a sexy, little dance, grinding into his body.”
The Miami date comes only ten days after he was spotted romancing actress Jessica Biel at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, the “SexyBack” that the singer re-ignited the flame with Johansson in Miami, where both were in town for the Super Bowl.
