Justin Timberlake’s Aunt Arrested For Stealing Money From His Family
Justin Timberlake needs to watch his millions very closely, if he knows what’s good for him.
According to Tennessee law enforcement, the Memphis native has a close relative with a serious case of sticky fingers. Justin’s aunt Jane Harless — whose bro is Justin’s stepfather — was arrested on September 13 for stealing from JT’s fam.
Cops in Shelby County (where Memphis is located) found evidence that Jane forged more than 100 bad checks, stealing thousands of dollars from Justin’s parents. Although details are unclear, it seems that Jane worked for Justin’s stepdad for an unspecified time, doing an unspecified job, until 2011.
From 2011 to 2013, authorities say, Jane has stolen more than $64,700 from Justin’s parents. Jane wrote checks to herself with the family’s checking account, and then forged her brother’s name — on121 checks!
Chip Washington of Shelby County Sheriff’s Office spoke to a local CBS affiliate, explaining of the discovery, “Some of the family members noticed some discrepancies and then it was sort of easy from that point to sort of see exactly what happened.”
Jane’s brother, Paul, is a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies NBA team and a partner in Justin’s Mirimichi golf course. She is currently being held at Shelby County Jail East without bond.
We can’t imagine why anyone would think they’d be justified in messing with the Timberlake clan, but we’re sure that she’ll learn that what goes around comes around (baby).
