“Don’t listen to all the BS. Especially in his situation, he and his fiance [Jessica Biel] — I haven’t really talked to him about everything yet — but they’re both in the limelight as well,” Fatone tells Parade. “It’s tough for those celebrity couples. It’s really hard. My wife wasn’t in the limelight, which made it easier.”
Fatone went on advising Timberlake to “keep it happy, light, and fun” to maintain romance once they have kids.
“There can be a lot of drama, like when you have kids. And both of them have jobs where they are taken to different places. It’s the communication that really needs to drive that relationship,” he said.
Timberlake, 31, and Biel, 30, got engaged during a snowboarding trip in the Jackson, Wyoming mountains in December 2011. The couple reportedly plan to marry next summer.
