Justin Timberlake is a smooth operator in more ways than one.
According to celebrity bodyguard Lee Weaver, Timberlake once defused a beef between his then-girlfriend Cameron Diaz and troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan.
RadarOnline.com obtained an exclusive copy of Weaver’s new book, Memoirs of a Celebrity Bodyguard, in which he details a night out on duty with Lohan at a Hollywood club where they ran into Diaz and Timberlake.
Weaver claims that Lohan attempted to ditch Weaver in an effort to have words with Diaz, but with bodyguards surrounding both tables, it was the unlikeliest of heroes coming to the rescue — Timberlake!
“Justin says, ‘Cameron and Lindsay are looking at each other like they want to kill each other. I don’t know what this is all about but I came out just to listen to some music and have a good time. I definitely don’t want to fight you and I know you don’t want to fight me. This is what we can do. I will keep Cameron in our booth and you keep Lindsay in her booth.’”
“Today I still respect Justin Timberlake for wanting to smooth that situation out,” Weaver said.
