Justin Randal Timberlake is born to parents Lynn Harless (nee Bomar) and Randall Timberlake. His paternal grandfather is a Baptist minister. His parents divorce when he is only five years old, and both remarry. About his relationship with his mother:
We have a very special relationship. She’s been my best friend since I figured out what I wanted to be. With girls, you keep searching for someone that’s as good as your mum, and that’s a losing battle.
