MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -
Social media is buzzing with reports that Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel may be moving to Memphis.
WMC Action News 5 is unable to confirm him coming home, but that doesn’t keep people in the Mid-South from dreaming.
He’s a worldwide sensation with roots in Memphis.
According to Huffington Post sources, neither Timberlake nor Biel want to raise children in Los Angeles. Reportedly, the couple wants to settle down in the Bluff City to start a family.
Truth or not, Memphians are excited.
Kay Gibson said, “He’s hometown and coming back home seems to be really special.”
“That is a great idea. It really needs to happen,” said Katie Isaachsen
“I think it’d be great for Memphis, see him around town,” said Angela Saba. “It’d be great.”
But what’s the appeal and why does it matter?
“He’s adorable and he’s a really good singer and we all have a better chance of meeting him,” said Isaachsen.
The Huffington Post says he wants to move here to get out of the Hollywood spotlight and give his family to a hometown.
That says a lot.
“Saying that it’s not maybe as dangerous as people say it is and thinking that he wants to come here and raise children, it would be good for the city,” explained Tonya Farley.
“Give us an uplifting spirit, hope in this city, enjoyment and entertainment,” Melvin Campbell said. “It be a good thing.”
Justin Timberlake is actually from Millington, TN north of Memphis, leaving many asking if he did move home, where might he live?
WMC Action News 5 found several large homes in Memphis and surrounding areas. Click here to see a slideshow of the five most expensive homes for sale in Memphis.
Memphians however, have their own ideas about where he should live.
“Right next door to me,” said one person. Another said, “In my neighborhood.”
Memphis real estate agent Joyce McKenzie said, “He should live in Collierville or Germantown or wherever he wants to, just call Joyce McKenzie.”
Wherever and whenever they move, almost everyone hopes the speculation is true.

Not a bad thing! Justin Timberlake snuck in a romantic getaway with his wife Jessica Biel for her 32nd birthday between his North American and European 20/20 tours.
Justin and Jessica jetted down to Barbados on March 14 to celebrate her March 3 birthday, according to Us Weekly. The couple rented out a private villa near the Sandy Lane resort.
JT chartered a $1,125-per-day catamaran Seaduced to take the couple wakeboarding. Jessica showed off a rocking bikini bod while she managed to stay upright on her board much better than her pop superstar husband.
“Justin wasn’t very good at wakeboarding,” an onlooker told Us. He even wiped out once. “Jessica was much better!”
On the water, Jessica, a self-described “adrenaline junkie,” wore a printed body suit top over her ocean-printed bikini. Both played it safe, wearing their protective life vests while on the board.
“They looked madly in love as they joked around,” an eyewitness told Us.
Jessica soaked up some sun on the back of the boat, tying a light scarf around her neck and putting on her dark shades.
The happily-in-love couple enjoyed the next day on dry land playing a round of golf and enjoying a romantic dinner by the sea.
Justin finished up the North American leg of his tour on March 5 and will set out his European concerts on March 30, starting at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, U.K.

Jessica Biel may not be a mother in real life, but she does play a somewhat deranged and delusional mom in her new flick, The Truth About Emanuel.
At last night’s Hollywood premiere of the movie, Biel dished to us about tapping into her maternal instinct to film with a newborn baby.
“I think to make this person, this character, work without being some ridiculous, crazy performance, is to really believe in what she’s doing and believe that that is her truth, that baby is her baby and that’s what it is,” Biel exclusively told E! News.
“And so the nurturing element of being a mother, that is really what I tapped into,” the gorgeous 31-year-old actress continued. “Because it’s like, the best villain really believes what they’re doing. It’s the same idea. This woman, that’s just her truth, her reality.”
Justin Timberlake is one talented guy and his wife, Jessica Biel, is plenty aware.
On Sunday, Timberlake, 32, kicked off the fan-voted American Music Awards with a win for favorite pop/rock male artist before taking home awards for soul/R&B artist and soul/R&B album categories.
He also brought the audience to their feet with his performance of “Drink You Away,” an alcohol-infused anthem from his latest release, The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.
But while everyone in the house seemed to be under Timberlake’s spell, Biel, 31, was nowhere to be found. Fans took to Twitter to ponder where she was (and note their jealousy over her hot hubby).
Keep up with Jessica Biel in the pages of PEOPLE Magazine by subscribing now.
The actress soon announced she was watching the Awards from home.
“I’m watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet,” she wrote.
PHOTOS: Candid Camera! The AMAs Moments You Didn’t See on TV
Although they were apart on Timberlake’s big night, two days prior, Biel shared a photo from Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience World Tour,” captioning it, “Not a bad seat in the house.”
Earlier this month, the couple attended the vows of fellow ‘NSYNC member, Chris Kirkpatrick in Orlando, Fla.
Justin Timberlake’s been all around the world, but he’ll never stray too far from his Tennessee roots.
In fact, Jessica Biel’s hubby might end up back in Nashville! J.T. brought his 20/20 Experience tour to Music City on Wednesday, Nov. 20, and per The Tennessean, it’s not a matter of “if” this Southern boy will move her, but “when!”
“I spend way more time in Nashville than people realize,” said Justin, who was born in Millington, Tenn., a small town just outside of Memphis. “I admire this town a lot. They take care of their own. There are not a lot of places in the world, much less America, that do that. It’s just a great place.”
“I think there could be a place for me here in the future for sure,” he said. “Absolutely I will work in Nashville. That’s probably the next move for me. The next move for me is to sink some teeth in here.”
But wait—that’s not all! Justin told Sirius XM’s The Highway, “I still got my eyes set on a Best Country Album. There is time for that.”
There is definitely time for that, and Tennessee will always be proud to welcome a true Southern gentleman like Justin back home!
Meet Jessica “Biel” Timberlake. You may know her as the teenage girl who starred as Mary Camden-Rivera on “7th Heaven” or maybe you’re more familiar with that person who married Justin Timberlake.
After 11 months of marriage, Life & Style reported the official change: “‘The paperwork is done and she’s now legally Jessica Timberlake.” According to the tabloid, Jessica is keeping the Biel “professionally,” but does that really make a difference?
At its core, the issue with name change is an issue of identity. There is significant power in names — they are the way that we think about and package the world around us. Names have a huge significance in our sense of self, both individually and in relation to society. They play a major role in our ideation in that they guide and direct the way we form thoughts. Consequently, a re-naming comes with re-identification. There is a distinct alteration to the the way we conceptualize ourselves that is inseparable from name change, and when that process includes dropping your own name in favor of another’s, the re-labeling has effects far beyond tax forms addressed to Mr. & Mrs. Something-or-other.
That’s what is so specifically frustrating about Jessica Biel’s choice. As someone with such a longterm famous identity, “Jessica Biel” does not simply apply to her concept of self, but our concept of her public figure. In other words, her name functions as a societal signifier at a much more macro level than a non-famous person relating to others rather than the public at large. Of course, Jessica is not getting a new household name, but changing the name “personally” is almost more significant — especially given the fact that her husband is also famous, and much more so than Ms. Biel has ever been. In taking Justin’s last name, Jessica is subverting her own identity, and becoming a part of Justin Timberlake, in a way that Justin Timberlake is not becoming a part of Jessica Biel.
The marital name-change debate is ultimately based in feminist argument: in changing your name as a result of heterosexual marriage, women relinquish a very basic marker of their identity, which is problematic insofar as it symbolizes a succumbing to patriarchal standards. However, as Jill Filipovic points out, the discourse of name-change is much more complex than the simple right to choose to change one’s name. Women who keep their names aren’t necessarily feminists, just as those that change their names aren’t necessarily not feminists. Ultimately, the most important aspect of the debate is the concept of identity and the way that can be co-opted by one’s partner in heterosexual marriage.
In recent years, more women have stuck with their maiden name, but the fact of the matter remains that over 50 percent of Americans think women should be legally obligated to change their name when they get married, and over 90 percent of women do. There are pressures to change one’s name and pressures to not change it (from those in feminist communities), and the existence of choice in the face of either version of coercion is often an illusion.
In becoming Jessica Timberlake, however, the former Jessica Biel is making a distinct and visible choice to subsume her very public identity to another very public identity. There is no private decision-making in this also very public choice, because the realm of “professional” and “private” are blurred as an automatic facet of celebrity culture. Both Timberlake and Biel are automatically attached to well-known personas, and there is an uncomfortable lack of self-awareness in Biel’s choice to succumb to the Timberlake identity.
The most problematic aspect of the marital name change is the consequent shift in a woman’s sense of self and her ability to understand herself as an individual with the agency to make decisions. The most poignant aspect of this intensely nuanced debate is the conceptual effect of labeling your identity as dependent on someone else’s. Re-labeling can appear to be a small change, but it is one that comes with much more macro implications than the letters on a page. Eerily enough, Biel’s comments about married life echo that fact. “It’s weird because it feels like almost nothing has changed,” she’s said, “but yet something that you really can’t describe — or something that isn’t really tangible — has changed.”
It’s like she’s a mirror.
not sure if the date on these pictures are accurate or not, but oh well.
Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel were all smiles while out on a date night on Friday evening. The couple were spotted out on broadway making their way into the Eugene O’neil Theater to catch a showing of “The Book Of Mormon”. Before the show started, Jessica was seen sitting on some church steps across the street from the theater while waiting for her husband Justin to arrive for their night out. The actress looked lonely and waited for about 20 minutes before the singer arrived.
OK, this is getting ridiculous.
The only notable suits at Justin Timberlake’s house today were of the law-enforcement variety. Police confirmed Friday to E! News that they received a bogus emergency call about shots being fired at a Los Angeles address (that we know to be Timberlake’s), and officers later classified the scene as a radio Code 4, meaning no further assistance was needed.
Then, a couple of hours later, cops were called to Selena Gomez’s home, only to find—you guessed it—no emergency.
As for the Spring Breakers star, the LAPD confirmed to E! that they received a call about shots fired at around 5 p.m. and there was no crime.
That makes four so-called swatting pranks this week, with Sean “Diddy” Combs’ house getting hit Wednesday and Rihanna’s yesterday.
As has been the case with all the others, neither Timberlake nor his missus, Jessica Biel, appeared to be around when the cops showed up, but Gomez was home when the cavalry came.
Police tell us they talked to her and she was fine.
A 12-year-old boy recently admitted to making a false report of an emergency situation at Ashton Kutcher’s house and is waiting to be punished in juvenile court for computer intrusion and making a false bomb threat. In exchange, charges will be dismissed regarding his involvement in a similar prank at Justin Bieber’s house and an L.A.-area bank.
TMZ has reported that there’s a link between the latest round of swatting action and hackers who have been pulling financial records and other personal information from celebrities and politicians and posting the ill-gotten info online.
Police tell us the string of incidents remain under investigation.
