Ashley Roberts revealed two very awkward meetings with Justin Timberlake

Ashley Roberts revealed two very awkward meetings with Justin Timberlake.


The Pussycat Dolls star revealed that when she approached him at a grand party, she was left dazed – but not before saying something very strange to her.

Ashley Roberts has admitted that he “really can’t talk” with a number of celebrities – and Justin Timberlake has frozen him TWICE.

The Pussycat Dolls star opens on this week’s Heart Showbiz Hub Podcast about her most embarrassing showbiz moments – and both involve former * N Sync stars.

Before he started dating his present wife Jessica Biel, Ashley often saw JT on the showbiz circuit, and he developed a big crush on her. Unfortunately he had a little problem every time he tried to talk to him.

He said: “I was at this afterparty Grammy back on the day we were single. I went to the bar for a drink, then I turned and he stood there, trying to say hello to me.

“I said, ‘Umm – I take two shots in my face now.’ He said ‘OK … that’s good to know …?!’

Justin Timberlake in 2006, when Ashley met him and couldn’t speak.


“I said ‘OK, bye!’ And just turn around and walk away and I’m like, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?! “

Unfortunately for Ashley, a few moments later it happened again.

He added: “We were in New York when he came and tried to talk to me. I really couldn’t form a sentence! He just grabbed my hand and said, ‘Alright then! I’ll just leave …’

“I’m closed! There are only a few people who go back to being five-year-old girls – I forgot how to talk!”

Glad to know that being a member of one of the biggest women’s groups of all time doesn’t mean you can still have moments of horror …
