Biel cheers Timberlake on at New York Fashion Week

The couple has been dogged by rumours of a split for months and the SexyBack hitmaker fuelled the tabloid claims when he pulled out of plans to join Biel on a charity climb up Mount Kilimanjaro last month (Jan10).

But the actress played the role of loving girlfriend on Wednesday (17Feb10) when she joined Timberlake’s parents at the William Rast fashion show, where he debuted his line’s latest collection.

And the singer’s mother Lynn Harless insists the stars’ three-year relationship is stronger than ever, reports

Referring to Biel as “one of us”, Harless adds, “They’re both very funny and creative. They’re always trying to out ‘special’ each other. They’re pretty openly affectionate.”
