Justin Timberlake’s aunt, Jane Harless, has been arrested for allegedly stealing $64,000 from Timberlake’s mother, Lynn Bomar Harless, and stepfather, Paul Harless.

Jane is reportedly suspected of having committed fraud, writing herself checks and forging her brother’s signature from 2011-2013 resulting in $64,700 from a reported 121 checks.

Jane previously worked for her brother, but was not working for him at the time of the alleged fraud.

“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,” Chip Washington from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, which arrested Jane, said.
