Justin Timberlake has posted an open letter on his website in which he apologizes for the controversial video featuring homeless people congratulating him and Jessica Biel on their nuptials.
E! News said that, in the letter, Timberlake stays he "had no knowledge of its existence" and "had absolutely ZERO contribution to it." What's more, he clarifies that, contrary to reports, "it was NOT shown at my wedding."
Timberlake goes on to say, "I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video. Again, it was something that I was not made aware of. But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable."
He should remind his wife that now, by law, she's 50 percent accountable for it as well.
Timberlake wrote that his friends are "good people" and that the video "was clearly a lapse in judgment which I'm sure no one who is reading this is exempt from. But, I don't believe it was made to be insensitive." However, "I think we can all agree that it was distasteful."
Timberlake concludes the letter by writing, "Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my thoughts. It really is a blessing to be able to speak directly to my true fans so that you can know exactly where I stand. P.S. You can bet your ass that I'm having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service ... Boom."
Geez ... who died and made Justin Timberlake the boss of handing out community service?
LINDSAY LOHAN'S MANAGER SMARTENS UP: Lindsay Lohan's longtime publicist Steve Honig must've finally come out from under hypnosis, found out what his job really was, and screamed like little Drew Barrymore in "E.T."
The man with the worst job in Hollywood -- and that includes the guy who cleans the restrooms at the Crazy Horse strip club -- has emancipated himself from Lindsay Lohan.
Honig's last straw was dealing with Lohan's father, Michael, who told TMZ he butted heads with Honig in the weeks leading up to his failed intervention with Lindsay last week. The freckles hit the fan last weekend, when Honig released a statement saying Lindsay's management team had nothing to do with Michael's plans for an intervention.
Michael apparently went nuts, calling him a "(expletive) liar" in a text message.
Sources said Honig quit Thursday, after two years of the bubbling hell that is being Lindsay Lohan's publicist.
He probably wants to take on much easier clients, like Amanda Bynes.
Sources close to Lindsay told TMZ Honig's decision to quit had nothing to do with the actress, just her dad. Of course not. Because all publicists go into the business thinking they'd enjoy dealing with a client who drives like a drunken chimp, steals jewelry, goes to rehab, (allegedly) trashes Elizabeth Taylor's trailer, (allegedly) steals clothes from film sets, doesn't show up for work on time, gets DUI's ...
Sorry. That got tiring.
Honig told TMZ it wasn't all Michael's fault. "Michael wishes he were that important," he said, without yielding further details.
LIL WAYNE HAS TWO SEIZURES: Lil Wayne had his second seizure on an airplane within 24 hours on Friday.
TMZ said Wayne was on a flight from Texas -- where he was diverted to Thursday after suffering a seizure onboard -- to Los Angeles when he had another seizure. The plane was diverted to Louisiana and he was taken to a hospital. At midafternoon Friday, Wayne was still being treated in a Louisiana hospital but was expected to be released by Friday evening.
Wayne's rep told TMZ after Thursday's incident that the rapper was suffering from dehydration and migraines.
KRISTEN STEWART AND ROBERT PATTINSON SEE PRINCE: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson went out on a date Thursday night.
This is the part where you put both hands over your mouth and excitedly screech "OmiGOD!"
The couple -- we think they're a couple -- went out to see Prince in what appeared to be a for real-deal, authentic, date to see Prince play a small Hollywood club, according to TMZ, who even has a photo.
They pulled up to the Sayers Club in the same SUV and went into the back entrance.
A short time later, the couple rushed back into the car, trying to cover their faces, but it was too late.
Those poor kids, trying so hard to stay away from all the publicity they're getting themselves and the upcoming "Twilight" movie today by taking the same vehicle to a concert and running to and from the car like they're trying to escape sniper fire, which wouldn't get anyone's attention.
Stay tuned for the next batch of terribly exciting news featuring two people none of us have ever met.
BRITNEY SPEARS' FORMER NANNY CALLS SAM LUTFI A LIAR: Britney Spears' former nanny called Sam Lufti a liar, telling TMZ Spears didn't use meth.
Leah Frand, who worked for Spears for six months in 2007, said she lived at Spears' home and was around the pop star constantly. She said "I have never seen meth in that house or any type of drug."
Well, that settles it. The nanny didn't see the meth. Case closed.
Lutfi said in court he found a bag of meth in the house around the time of Spears' meltdown. He said Spears was so paranoid about getting caught, she shaved her head so officials couldn't test her hair for drugs.
Maybe they should've sent her hair to rehab.
Frand said Lutfi is a "low-life loser" who was so desperate to stay in Spears' world, he may have planted the drugs in her home, as part of a scheme to become her life coach.
Wait ... what drugs? She said there weren't any drugs. Was that before of after her hair went to rehab?
Frand also said Lutfi was never employed by Spears in any capacity. "I don't know what the hell he was doing (in her life) honestly... being Britney's (female dog) basically and not getting paid for it."
Lutfi hasn't responded to TMZ's request for comment.
