According to law enforcement who told the website, she forged more than 100 checks. In between the years of 2011 to 2013 she is said to have accumulated more than $64,000 from Timberlake’s mother and stepfather. Jamming: It was announced on Tuesday that Justin led the nominations for the MTV European Music Awards How she gained access to the checks is unknown, but she had previously worked for Paul, who is a minority owner of NBA team the Memphis Grizzlies, before 2011. A reporter from News Channel 3 visited Justin’s parent home on Tuesday in regards to the matter. They spoke to a gentleman who said he was part of the family and that they wanted ‘everything to be a private matter’. Chip Washington of Shelby County Sheriffs Office told CBS that the fraud was uncovered when family members discovered that there was money missing from the said account. ‘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,’ he told the station. Justin’s stepfather, who has been married to his mother since the pop star was five, is also a partner in Justin’s Mirimichi golf course. Meanwhile, there was some good news for Justin on Tuesday as he leads the nominations for the MTV European Music Awards 2013.
The “Work Bitch” singer sat down Tuesday with “Good Morning America” co-host Sam Champion to discuss her Las Vegas residency and her new music. Champion convinced the superstar to answer a lightning round of questions and couldn’t help asking about her love life. “How old were you when you had your first kiss ?” Champion asked. “Oh my god!” Spears responded, squealing. “Maybe 13?” “Do you remember who it was?” “It was Justin,” she revealed. Spears and Timberlake met in The Mickey Mouse Club in the 1990s. The two admitted they were dating in 1999 and went on to become pop’s royal couple. Their relationship was thrust under the media microscope, with one of the main points of interest being whether or not they had slept together . The two eventually split in 2002 amid rumors she had cheated on him . In a 2011 interview with Vanity Fair, Timberlake said he hadn’t spoken to Spears in “nine or 10 years” but wished her the best. Since then, the songstress has had two children and two failed marriages, the first lasting only 55 hours. In January, Spears split from fiance Jason Trawick . The breakup inspired songs for her eighth yet-untitled studio album, due out Dec.
