Justin Timberlake Sells 127-Acre Property at $2M Loss Before DWI Arrest as Ticket Sales Lag

The popstar sold off the undeveloped estate for $8 million in May after dropping the price down from the original $10 million asking price, records seen by The U.S. Sun show.


He purchased the 127-acre site in a picturesque village outside of Nashville for $4 million in 2015 - and listed the property for $10 million this past August.


It came as Justin struggled to sell off the last tickets for his global tour.


Timberlake announced the Forget Tomorrow World Tour on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show in January.


Ticket sales for the world tour have been sluggish, with thousands of tickets still available for his next four dates in Chicago and New York.


At the end of June, the Cry Me A River singer is due to perform at the United Center in Chicago then onto Madison Square Garden for two gigs.


Looking at the seating map on Ticketmaster for all four shows, the arenas are illuminated in shades of blue, signifying high ticket availability.


The tickets, which are a mixture of resale tickets and tickets that haven’t been sold, are spread out throughout the arenas, with only a handful of sections being sold out for all shows.


The tour moves to Europe next month, hitting Poland, Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and France.


According to Timberlake’s website, none of the dates he’s performing are sold out in any country.



Despite slow sales, it was reported that the Forget Tomorrow World Tour had already amassed $140 million, some of which could be lost if, as The U.S. Sun reported this week, tour dates may be scrapped following his arrest.


The SexyBack singer still holds property debt on his Hollywood Hills home, which he listed for $35 million in 2021 before pulling it off the market months later.


Timberlake owned the nine-bed, 13-bathroom mansion since July 2002, when he purchased it from actress Helen Hunt for $8.3 million.


Public records show that he saddled it with an $8.8 million home equity line of credit with Citibank in July 2009.


The former boyband star, and his wife, Jessica Biel, also sold their Tribeca penthouse for $29 million in 2022.


The singer mentioned his tour to the arresting officer on Monday during the traffic stop.


“This is going to ruin the tour,” the former NSYNC member could be heard saying as he was placed under arrest, The Standard reported.


The young arresting officer, who reportedly had no idea who Timberlake was, asked him what tour he was talking about.


“The world tour,” Timberlake replied.



A source told The U.S. Sun that Timberlake has since apologized to his tour team and told them none of the dates will be canceled.


A DWI charge and a potential touring flop aren’t the only two scandals that may have had Timberlake taking a good look in the mirror the past few years.


In 2019, Timberlake publicly apologized to his wife after being caught on camera cozying up to his Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright in New Orleans.


“I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people I love,” Timberlake wrote in a public Instagram story apology.


“A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment – but let me be clear – nothing happened between me and my co-star.”


“I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son,” he said.


“I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be.
