Justin Timberlake Gets Slapped At Golf Tournament

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - SEPTEMBER 15: Singer Justin Timberlake performs during the Rock in Rio Festival in Rio de Janeiro

You’d think that a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada would be a pretty safe place for a high-ranking celebrity like Justin Timberlake. But it wasn’t.

According to reports, the pop star turned actor was slapped in the face by some guy during the tournament. Timberlake was attending the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course when a man just stepped in and smacked the singer across the face.

The man was arrested immediately and escorted off the property. Timberlake was not hurt and according to reports, he’s not going to press charges.

The slap-happy man was apparently pretty drunk, and was telling police while being escorted away that he just wanted to touch Timberlake.

Timberlake is a good sport, so he didn’t let the incident ruin the tournament. He still had a great time, and even ended up doing a celebratory “Carlton dance” with Carlton himself, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.

The guy who slapped him is probably going to be facing charges of disorderly conduct.
