They gushed about their magical wedding day in Italy in the latest issue of People magazine, in which they were reportedly paid $300,000 for the exclusive shots from the day.
But now a video that was shown at the $6.5 million wedding of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel is leaving a very sour taste in people’s mouths.
In the utterly tasteless clip, shot by Timberlake’s friend, Justin Huchel, a homeless man, a street musician and a transvestite are seen giving the multimillionaire couple blessings and well-wishes.
The video was obtained by Gawker and is reportedly more than 8 minutes, but Gawker posted only a 20-second clip on its website. Huchel’s attorney told Gawker to take down the video or face a lawsuit.
But the letter written by the attorney is making the situation even worse, as the clip was described as being a “private joke”.
“Specifically, Mr. Huchel made a video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake’s wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake’s knowledge,” Michael Saltz wrote.
Timberlake and Biel’s reps didn’t return calls seeking comment, TMZ reported.
Despite Huchel’s attorney trying to distanceTimberlake from the video, the decision to mock the homeless isn’t going down well– at all.
“It’s official I am no longer a @jtimberlake fan!! Unfollowing you right now! Mocking the homeless is wrong!” Twitter user @StephBreezy678 wrote.
Others tweeted the video is “tacky” and “disgusting.”
