Justin Timberlake’s DWI arrest raised questions about his net worth.

In recent news, Justin Timberlake faced a DWI arrest, which has sparked a flurry of media attention.

Historically, Justin has managed to maintain his professional standing despite personal controversies, most notably with Britney Spears amidst the reveal of her abortion in her memoir, The Woman in Me. Even still, Justin’s talent and charisma continue to attract new projects and opportunities, ensuring a steady flow of income.

But many fans couldn’t help but call out Justin’s stupidity in the face of his arrest. Anyone with a $250 million net worth likely has a personal chauffeur, bodyguard, and other types of security that should be responsible for Justin’s safety and innocence. Us normies have to drive or call an Uber, but Justin could literally call a limo on speed dial and get to where he needs to be. So why wouldn’t he?

It’s possible that he just wanted to feel a little freedom. Some people like to drive, and with a few drinks, Justin may have been thinking, ‘I just want to be a normal boy!’ But normal boys don’t make headlines when they get a DWI. But likely with some impressive financial padding and a familial support system, he’ll be more than OK.
