Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been plagued by breakup rumors since the beginning of their relationship. Now, a year into their marriage, it’s Timberlake’s grandmother that’s adding fuel to the fire.

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel's Long-Distance Marriage

For Timberlake’s last few events, Biel wasn’t spotted at his side, nor did she show up at after parties. Her notable absence caused some to speculate that the former 7th Heaven actress was keeping out of the spotlight because of a new pregnancy. Timberlake’s grandmother, Sadie Bomar, claims that’s not the case.

“They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it’s hard going,” Bomar told The Sun. “I’m sure when it’s right to have children they will, but not now. They do love each other dearly but they are apart so much it’s going to be hard going for them."

“I think Jessica finds that really tough. She’s on her own a good deal,” Timberlake’s grandmother continued. “If he’s not coming back at night that puts a strain on things, of course it does. It’s hard to keep it all going but you have to have faith to keep it all going."

Despite the couple’s hardships and the setbacks they face regarding parenthood, Bomar believes all will be well – if they start making some more time for each other. She said, “I have faith in them and I believe they love each other dearly but I know they need time together.”

Last month, Timberlake’s mother Lynn Harless used social media to put Timberlake and Biel supporters' worry to rest. According to the singer’s mom, counter to tabloid reports, her son and daughter-in-law couldn’t be happier.

“I really try not to comment on bulls–t stuff, but I get so sick of all these stupid tabloids printing all the crap that they do about my son and his beautiful wife, who by the way are immensely happy and so much in love!” she wrote on Facebook. “Why don’t some of you act like journalist and print a real story! Report some actual news and stop making up rumors about people’s lives who are otherwise VERY happy!"

Timberlake and Biel have been married since October 19, 2012.
