Though further details about his reported DWI arrest aren’t yet forthcoming, this is the second time in the past few months that Timberlake has courted controversy.

Last year Britney Spears’ memoir The Woman In Me outlined how Justin had requested she have an abortion when she fell pregnant while the two were dating.

The weeks following the revelation saw Timberlake widely criticized in the media and on social media platforms, particularly since it was also reported that he had then dumped Spears as she was filming a music video.
