Justin Timberlake Splits Up With His Charity

Nice going, JT.

 

Gotcha! As far as I know Justin Timberlake is still planning to marry Jessica Biel.

The charity in question is The Shriners Hospital for Children. For the last several years the former boy band singer, featured in the film The Trouble with the Curve, had sponsored a celebrity golf tournament in Las Vegas for the organization.

Tournament chairman Raoul Frevel spoke with the Las Vegas Review-Journal and gave some real talk about the star.

While acknowledging Timberlake fulfilled his duties to the foundation and raised several million dollars Frevel went on to say:

“Justin’s a wonderful person. But we tried everything we could to get him more involved with our kids and the hospitals. But it seemed that when the TV cameras weren’t on, he disappeared.”

So, Justin Timberlake, young, rich and famous, didn’t go above and beyond for the sick and dying.

Is anybody really surprised by this?

Public relation firms solely exist so that the general public isn’t constantly confronted with the fact that stars are NOT just like us, but are they doing that great a job?

Assertions about the wonderment of Timberlake’s person aside, what specifics prompted the chairman to this bit of truth telling?

Vegas doesn’t seem the right place for candid folks but but it  goes with out saying that loose lipped people give me LIFE. Thanks Mr.Frevel!
