Cape Town – Though he "feels guilty" Justin Timberlake says the scandal with his Palmer co-star, Alisha Wainwright, "is not a big deal".

On Saturday, after photographs of the two holding hands and Alisha resting hers on Justin's leg, started circulating along with a video of the two getting close at a bar in New Orleans, fans began speculating about what could've been going on between them. Justin also wasn't wearing his ring, reports E! News. A source told the news outlet the Say Something singer "feels guilty" and "will make it up to her [Jessica Biel]".

The insider said, "They are downplaying everything and trying to laugh it off as nothing. But it was definitely inappropriate and something that would make any wife uncomfortable. He had too much to drink and got carried away." The source added that Justin and Jessica will "move on from this".

"Their marriage will survive. He feels guilty and will make it up to her. She is very good to him and he knows how lucky he is. He says it was not a big deal, they were all hanging out together and that's the end of the story."

Other sources who were at the bar when it happened said pretty much the same thing. "They were out with all the cast, crew, makeup artists, and everyone was just hanging out in a social setting. They are just working together. No validity to any other rumour other than that they are filming together."

Another source added, "They're filming a movie together, and it was a group of people hanging out. There is nothing going on between them."
