According to a source speaking to ET, the DWI arrest “has taken a toll on him, but he's trying to look at it as a way to reinvent himself.” The insider further claimed that Timberlake is “feeling remorse, shame and humiliation, taking the situation seriously and acknowledging its potential impact on his family dynamics, on him as a husband and father, as well as on his fans.”

The singer was arrested on June 18 and reportedly spent a night in custody, where he appeared to be nervous about the situation. The pop star was detained by a young police officer who was unaware of the singer's identity and asked him to undergo a breathalyzer test, which he refused. Timberlake, who looked red and glassy-eyed, was stopped in the Hamptons on suspicion of crossing a stop sign and drifting out of his lane. He later failed sobriety tests. The 43-year-old, who had spent the evening at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor, Long Island, confessed to drinking just one martini before getting behind the wheel.
