With the potential of moving back to Tribeca, New York, Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel spare no dollar in investing in the best houses. Settling a $28 million down payment for a brand new four-bedroom penthouse, the couple will soon share the building with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, and Ryan Reynolds. No strangers to living amongst America’s top 1%, the duo currently reside alongside Bill Gates, former Vice President Dan Quayle, and Jack Kemp in Montana.

Justin Timberlake complains about 24 Hour Parenting under Quarantine at the World’s Most Exclusive Property – Yellowstone Club Montana

Purchasing their residence at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana in 2015, Timberlake hopes to provide his five-year-old son, Silas, with experiences beyond the constraints of Hollywood, where they are often mobbed by paparazzi and adoring fans.

Complete with a private 2,200 acre live-in ski resort, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel reportedly pay additional, mandatory fees of up to $30,000 a year, plus $300,000 upfront to maintain their membership at the development.

Quarantined within the compounds of their exclusively lavish Montana residence, Timberlake and his family patiently await the cease of the latest Covid-19 pandemic – despite enjoying unlimited access to miles and miles of skiable land, the duo acknowledge their privilege unlike most Americans and global citizens who are caged in one-bedroom, if not smaller apartments, and have since announced generous donations to the Memphis Mid-South Food Bank in Tennessee, alongside posting positive and uplifting messages across social media, calling for solidarity and the support of local communities.

 

The couple expressed sympathy for parents working round the clock in an effort to satisfy their bored tweens and teens, as they gifted Silas a Lego Trolls set, cake, and bounce house for his recent birthday on April 8th.

Promoting the release of Trolls World Tour onto streaming, in an interview on Zoom with SiriusXM’s Hits 1, Justin Timberlake answered both work related and personal questions regarding his latest projects, self-isolation and the dynamics of his family – stating that they are “lucky and blessed” to have an expansive property which offers the space and privacy for a multitude of activities such as hiking, adding in his remarks that “24-hour parenting is just not human.”

Said in a lighthearted tone with no ill-intent, it was here that social media users immediately imploded in rage, accusing the singer of being unaware of his privilege, tone-deaf and insensitive to the situation of others – sharing that for many of which, working and 24-hour parenting without hired help have long become part of their daily lives.

Faced with the stress of rising death tolls, a rapidly increasing infected rate, managing households and securing family health, celebrities have never been less entertaining. Besides flooding our newsfeed with redundant and narcissistic livestreams of them singing, dancing, and sharing pointless banter, an overwhelmingly vocal majority of social media users have expressed their disgust and disappointment in the top one-percent’s lack of initiative when offering aid in the form of financial and instrumental resources. It seems being rich, talented, and in the spotlight are no longer a cause for aspiration if the people in power do nothing to help those in need.-
