We recently reported that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel might be having some relationship issues. If those rumors prove true, family pressures probably aren’t helping the matter at all. According to an upcoming article in the print edition of National Enquirer, Jessica’s father is putting the full-court press on Timberlake to get him to propose to Biel, his girlfriend of two years. An inside source says that Jessica’s father has grown impatient, asking for lots of man-to-man talks to put the pressure on Timberlake. The source says, “Jon has made it clear he’s growing impatient.”
Evidently, Jessica’s father has offered to sweeten the deal by offering something a little special. The source says, “Jon told Justin that he’ll cover the entire cost of the wedding.”
We weren’t aware that dowries were alive and well among the celebrity set. We also have to say that if JT’s got cold feet we can’t imagine a future father-in-law putting pressure on him is going to suddenly make him all warm and fuzzy. We hope the rumors that the couple is having trouble aren’t true but from the sounds of all the reports it appears that Timberlake isn’t exactly lovestoned and it appears that she knows.
