Timberlake Breaks With Southern Hospitality

People asks Justin Timberlake about the possibility that Southern Hospitality is coming to Chelsea, and his PR informs the mag that although they were initially involved, Timberlake and his bro Trace Ayala have no stake in the place: “They are not investors, owners or partners, nor do they have any knowledge of or involvement in the operations of the restaurant.” Not exactly a shocker, but funny given that when the barbecue joint first opened, its PR told us that while Justin only had a small role in his other restaurant Destino, he’d be a significant partner in this one.
