Justin Timberlake, Alisha Wainwright spotted holding hands in New Orleans bar

Justin Timberlake was hands-on with his new co-star Alisha Wainwright during a recent night out.

Wainwright, 30, was seen touching the knee of singer Timberlake— wed to actress Jessica Biel, 37 — before he took hold of her hand.

In photos obtained by The Sun, the pair were snapped around midnight chatting and drinking in a bar in New Orleans while on a break from filming a movie in which they play lovers.

Sources said Timberlake, 38, appeared to have been drinking heavily and was unsteady on his feet.

"At one stage he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee. She then gently started stroking his leg.

“Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands.”

Timberlake had been snapped wearing his wedding ring earlier in the week but was not seen with it on during the night out.
