Washington: Justin Timberlake has reportedly upset George Michael’s admirers after they mistook him for the British singer’s new boyfriend at his concert in London.
Two men were attempting to flirt with the ‘Freedom’ singer after his solo gig at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Saturday but reportedly stormed off in a jealous rage when Timberlake approached George for a chat, mistaking him as Michael’s new boyfriend.
“Loads of young good looking guys were hanging off George, trying to chat him up but he wasn’t having any of it,” Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.
“Hilariously, when JT went over to chat to him, two men flounced off, failing to recognise Justin and thinking he was George’s latest conquest.
“One made a bitchy comment about JT only being after George for his money and was glaring at him menacingly all evening, threatening to ‘have a word,’” the source added.
Justin, who recently reconciled with on/off girlfriend Jessica Biel, wanted to chat to George about a possible duet and also reportedly wants to find a man for the`` ‘Praying for Time’ hitmaker because he knows how hard it is to be alone.
The source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Justin’s been pretty on and off with his girlfriend Jessica Biel and knows how George is feeling after splitting with Kenny.
“Justin was asking George what his type was and if there was anyone he would like to be introduced to.
“In the end the guys did actually swap numbers but only because Justin said he’d love to work with George one day. They are really keen on getting a collaboration finalised,” the source added.
