Know Your Idol – In just one night, Justin Timberlake‘s life suddenly fell apart. As is known, on June 18 2024 he was arrested by the police and charged with driving while drunk. This legal problem is even more complicated, because Jessica Biel’s husband is actually holding a concert tour entitled Forget Tomorrow.

On Friday 21 June 2024, Justin Timberlake also performed at the United Center to hold this concert. On this occasion, the singer of “Cry Me A River” talked about his life after experiencing this incident. Reporting from E! News, this is the first comment the artist has made to the public, following the drunk driving incident.

“We’ve been together through the ups and downs of life, and this week has been a tough one,” Justin Timberlake said on stage.

He continued, “But you are all here, I am here, and nothing changes the moment that is happening now.”

The former lover of Britney Spears appeared to be speaking slowly. However, every sentence was greeted with a warm welcome from the fans, making him bow.

“I know sometimes it’s hard to love me, but you still love me and I love you back. Thank you very much,” he said, finishing his statement.

Justin Timberlake’s Arrest Moment

The arrest of Justin Timberlake occurred on Long Island, New York, in the early hours of June 18, and has been confirmed by the authorities. At the time of his arrest, Justin Timberlake was driving a 2025 BMW southbound on Madison Street. He is known to have left the American Hotel FOR4D in Sag Harbor in the early hours of the morning, and was going to a friend’s house. However, the singer of “Cry Me A River” did not stop his vehicle at the signs he was supposed to, or drive in his lane. Seeing this, the police at the location immediately stopped him.

Showing Signs of Intoxication

In documents obtained by the media, the officers who arrested Justin Timberlake immediately saw signs that he was drunk. The 43-year-old singer had red eyes, while the smell of alcohol was also strong on his breath. Justin Timberlake also had difficulty paying attention to officers’ directions, spoke at a slow tempo, and his feet did not stay on the ground.

Session Simultaneous with Concert Date

People confirmed that the NSYNC FOR4D member will be charged with one count of driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving while intoxicated with two special charges. Namely not stopping at stop signs, and not being able to drive in the lane. He is scheduled for trial on July 26. The date of this trial coincided with his concert in Kraków, Poland. However, this trial will be held online, and will only be represented by lawyer Justin Timberlake.
