Drama unfolded over the weekend when Justin Timberlake and his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright were spotted holding hands in New Orleans. Photos from their weekend rendezvous saw the "What Goes Around... Comes Around" singer sans his wedding ring while he locked hands with the actress at The Absinthe House on Bourbon Street. Several insiders close to the singer-actor have confirmed that Justin and Alisha are nothing more than friends. While Justin's wife Jessica Biel was spotted unaffected by the news, Alisha's father, Jeff Wainwright, has come forward in her defense. 

Jeff spoke to Daily Mail and said that he is used to the "hoopla" of the entertainment industry. "She is in New Orleans doing some work, that is all. They are working on a movie together. I did not make anything of it, really. I am a music producer, so I am used to all the hoopla. This is the business we are in. This is how it goes," he told the international daily. 

Although he defended his daughter, Jeff chose to stay out of his daughter's business. “I cannot be telling you whether or not she is in a relationship or things like that. She is a young lady, 30-years-old, she is living her life and doing what she has gotta do," he said. "Even if there is something (going on) I would not know. When you are in show business, you separate family from the business. When you are at home with your family, you talk about other things. You don’t talk about this crazy stuff," he added. 

After the scandal broke open over the weekend, the paparazzi caught the two stars back on sets and continued filming for the movie. During the same time, Biel stepped out wearing her wedding ring to reassure that the incident might have not influenced her relationship with her husband.
