He said, "I drank way too much that night and I regret my behaviour."
As a video of Justin Timberlake cozying up with his 'Palmer' co-star went viral, the singer-turned-actor has now issued an apology to his wife Jessica Biel and family via his social media profile.
He took to Instagram and wrote a post that read: "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."
It continued, "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. This was not that. I am incredibly proud of working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie ane excited for people to see it."
