Timberlake wedding video featuring homeless people makes waves

That's one way to end the honeymoon early: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's recent wedding is at the center of a publicity — and potentially legal — nightmare. 

According to the website Gawker, guests at the southern Italian nuptials Friday saw a tribute video sent by a friend of Timberlake, a real-estate agent named Justin Huchel, that featured homeless men and one person who appeared to be a transvestite wishing the couple well, following a title card reading, "Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn't make it."

The Gawker story was later updated with two letters from counsel for Huchel.

Justin Timberlake has taken time to "clear the air" and apologize about the video featuring homeless people that was produced by a friend of his, ostensibly in honor of his recent wedding to Jessica Biel. 

"I want to say that, on behalf of my friends, family, and associative knuckleheads, I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video. Again, it was something that I was not made aware of. But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable."
