Justin Timberlake Returns to Social Media After Arrest to Shout Out the Knicks

Justin Timberlake is back to business as usual. Nine days after he was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, the 43-year-old pop star returned to social media Tuesday (June 25) with an Instagram video showing off his new Knicks-inspired merch ahead of his shows in New York City, the first of which Jessica Biel attended to show her husband support. 


In the clip, Timberlake stands in the middle of Madison Square Garden before his two back-to-back Forget Tomorrow World Tour performances at the venue. Holding up a blue T-shirt with orange lettering, he proudly says, “This is so important right now.”  

“Let’s go, got y’all’s Knicks colors,” he continues before singing: “We had to do it! Bing bong!” 

Though the *NSYNC alum’s comments are currently limited on the platform, Timberlake did receive some support underneath the video. “🔥🔥🔥🔥 NEEED THAT ONE!!” wrote Travis Kelce, who’s a documented JT stan

Later that night, the singer took the MSG stage for what would be his third performance back after his arrest. Fan cameras captured Biel enjoying the show from the floor among hundreds of fans, dancing along to the music and appearing to hold her 4-year-old son Phineas, whom she shares with Timberlake, along with 9-year-old Silas. 

Prior to his New York show, Timberlake performed two nights in Chicago on June 21 and 22. At the first, he broke his silence on his brush with the law by telling the crowd, “It’s been a tough week.”  

“I know I’m hard to love sometimes but you keep loving me right back,” he added at the time. “We’ve been together through ups and downs and lefts and rights … but you’re here and I’m here, and nothing can change this moment right now.” 

The heartfelt moment came four days after Timberlake was arrested on DWI charges in Sag Harbor, N.Y., after being pulled over after leaving a restaurant. Local police recently confirmed via statement that the “SexyBack” singer was also cited for running a stop sign and not staying in his lane. 

“[We] look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake against these allegations,” Timberlake’s lawyer, Ed Burke, said in a statement last week. “He will have a lot to say at the appropriate time. He is currently awaiting full discovery from the DA’s office.”
