Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are trying out an open relationship. It’s no secret that J. Timberlake has a roving, rambling, horny eye and Jessica has’t been able to keep up with all of his sexual needs. While it was widely reported last month that Justin dumped Jessica via phone call, sources close to the pair saying they are going the pull-the-band-aid-off-slowly route, i.e. friends with benefits.

more Justin and Jessica after the hop…

A friend tells Fox 411.com:

Justin was very clear with Jessica that he didn’t want to be in a serious relationship with her anymore where he wasn’t able to date other people,” says the insider. “Jessica took the news very hard, but once she calmed down and they started talking again, he convinced her to stay friends who hook up, without all the pressure of a relationship.”

Oh, ouch. Ouch, ouch, ouch. Sucker punch right to the gut. Poor Jess, lucky Justin.

Justin gets the best of both worlds,” says the source. “He doesn’t have to lose Jess as a lover or a friend, but he’s free to explore other [relationships].”
