Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Accept Heat Apology

Magazine says sorry for unfounded 'flirting' claims...

Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel have accepted an apology from British celeb mag heat over an untrue story.

The mag had published a piece entitled "Justin Timberlake gets flirty with another woman" and had used the taglines "It is not his wife!" and "The flirty photos that rocked Justin and Jessica's marriage".

It suggested that JT had been playing away while on tour in Paris back in August.

However the famous pair took issue with the story and began legal action against the title, with a settlement apparently being reached yesterday.

A statement from Bauer Consumer Media, which publishes heat, read: "The Defendant accepts that the article was false and withdraws any inferences that questioned the state of Justin and Jessica's marriage.

"The Defendant regrets any embarrassment caused to the couple and unreservedly apologises to them."

The lawyer acting on behalf of the couple, Paul Tweed of Johnsons Law Firm, told E! News that the matter was over as far as JT and JB are concerned.

He said: "The couple will not be making any further comment in relation to this matter, but will not hesitate to take similar legal action if false allegations regarding the state of their marriage are repeated."
