Justin Timberlake

by ethnic on August 30, 2008

Birth Name: Justin Randall Timberlake

Place of Birth: Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.

Date of Birth: January 31, 1981

Ethnicity: English (mostly), as well as some Irish, Scottish, and Welsh, distant Dutch, French, German, and Jersey/Channel Islander

Justin Timberlake is an American dancer, singer, songwriter, director, actor, and record producer. He was a member of the boy band NSYNC, with Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick. He is married to actress Jessica Biel, with whom he has a son.

Justin is the son of Randall Timberlake and Lynn (Bomar) Harless. He is of mostly English, some Irish, Scottish, and Welsh, and distant Dutch, French, German, and Jersey (Channel Islander), ancestry.

There is a claim that Justin is a descendant of Henry Timberlake, an explorer born in Virginia, c. 1730, who had apparently had children with a Native American woman. The publicly available family trees of Justin Timberlake, however, show him to be a patrilineal descendant of Richard Timberlake, who was born, c. 1736, in Lancaster County, Virginia. Justin is thus not a descendant of Henry Timberlake (at least through that line).

Justin’s patrilineal line traces back to Francis Timberlake, who was born, c. 1687, in London, England.

Justin’s paternal grandfather is Charles L. Timberlake (the son of John Denham Timberlake and Gladys Lucille Martin). John was the son of Charles Mitchell Timberlake and Eva J. Pirtle. Gladys was the daughter of Colley Edward Martin and Sarah Virginia “Sallie” Hargrove.

Justin’s paternal grandmother is Bobbye/Bobby Joice Williams (the daughter of Robert Lee Williams and Katherine Heneritta “Katie” Morris). Robert was the son of Robert Lee Williams and Annilee Sullivan. Katherine was the daughter of Clarence Morris and Frances Arnold.

Justin’s maternal grandfather was William Silas “Bill” Bomar (the son of Silas Bryant Bomar and Lois Aileen McCraw). William was born in Tennessee. Justin’s great-grandfather Silas was the son of Robert Lee Bomar and Martha Jane “Mattie” Lumpkin. Lois was the daughter of William Gabriel/Gabrielle McCraw and Allie Blanche Bomar.

Justin’s maternal grandmother is Sadie Lee Timbs (the daughter of Clarence Andrew Timbs/Timms and Susan Florence “Susie” Joyner). Sadie was born in Tennessee. Clarence was the son of James Samuel Timbs/Timms and Lelia Eva Stocks. Susan was the daughter of Levi Ellis/V. “Lee” Joyner and Annie Demetra George.

His nose is not Italian or black, it is germanic
look at Marlene dietrich nose: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/89/Marlene_Dietrich_in_Israel_%281960%29_%28Cropped%29.png

lol there is no such thing as a “germanic nose” how can you be so certain of what a germanic nose is? There are no pure Germanic nations today. All of them have substantial mediterranean and even slavic influence. Germanic nations are no more pure than any other and their phenotypes vary because of it. Germanics of old would have looked much more rougher featured than todays Germanics who have undergone substantial gracilization from mediterranean influence.

tttyyy July 25, 2015 at 3:34 pm

Hey follers, I’ve got a question

tttyyy July 23, 2015 at 8:19 am

Did the Vikings ever settle in Sclat, Germany

tttyyy July 22, 2015 at 9:24 pm

I mean through Vikings they’re norwegian, or in another way.

tttyyy July 22, 2015 at 9:23 pm

Do you think that everybody is descended from Norwegians, vikings

cwm85 July 15, 2015 at 3:43 pm

At first I thought he was part black… LOL

tttyyy July 14, 2015 at 11:01 pm

@follers
My friend is full German with bits of polish,and not descended from royalty, but he really wants to be distant Norwegian or another ethnicity. His great-grandmother’s name is Margaret Steiner born August 8, 1876 in Holzheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Her parents are Johann Georg Steiner (1847-??) and Ursula Koezle (1849-1926). Margaret married Gustave Muerder, and died in New York on an unknown date. Follers or anybody please find out if she is distant anything (Norwegian, French, Danish, etc.) or descended from royalty.

tttyyy July 15, 2015 at 1:14 pm

Please he is threatening me

tttyyy July 15, 2015 at 4:32 pm

Hey is anybody good at finding this because he really wants to know and all I found was that Margaret Steiner was German

neiltennant July 13, 2015 at 10:40 am

In a bravo interview when N SYNC promoted their GONE video 2001 or 2002 there was written that he has also native american roots and it was named with CHEROKEE

why now he denies this ?

look at this face and curly hair. Of course there is something not european

andrew July 15, 2015 at 3:33 pm

Native Americans don’t have curly hair, Europeans can.

pookerella October 16, 2016 at 3:12 pm

He is implying that he has African heritage.

Taurus1 May 29, 2017 at 7:40 pm

Of course Justin has African heritage, but it doesn’t make him non-white. Everyone has African heritage to some degree, we all came from Africa. The first fossils of Homo Sapiens have been found in Ethiopia, Sub-Saharan Africa. No one is 100% Eurpean.

truegattaca September 2, 2017 at 10:31 pm

Most Europeans don’t have African admixture when they do DNA test.

Taurus1 February 20, 2018 at 8:00 am

Trugattaca If the first human beings appeared in Sub-Saharan Africa, it is a logical consequence that absolutely everybody has African ancestry to some degree. First human beings where not Europeans but sub-Saharan Africans. Later they migrated out of Africa. DNA test are innacurate if the say you only have European ancestry. No one can have European ancestry only.

truegattaca September 2, 2017 at 10:32 pm

Curly hair is not rare in Europeans.

cdonorab May 25, 2015 at 9:20 am

Correction. He also has some French ancestry as well. His father’s grandmother had ancestors born in the 1650s who came.from France.

theropod April 1, 2015 at 7:58 am

There is something about his nose and curly hair that give off a Jewish or Italian vibe. Surprised that he is full Northern European.

andrew May 25, 2015 at 2:53 pm

I never thought once he was part black and if he was and knew it, I certain he would claim it. I thought he may be more native American than anything else, with his curly hair, or part jewish with curly hair. But certainly not with african ancestry…Timberlake surname kinda gave the native American thought for me.

truegattaca September 2, 2017 at 10:33 pm

Native Americans don’t have curly hair. Curly hair is more common in Europeans.

Joe January 22, 2014 at 2:56 pm

Why’s everyone tripping on his curly hair… have you never seen an irish person with curly hair? I think that could explain it… Angela B… curly hair is NOT a native trait. They have hair like asians; plain ol straight unless mixed.

andrew January 23, 2014 at 6:01 am

actually there are a lot of Irish or British people with fair curly hair, while people with darker hair use to have straight texture

stonelord June 3, 2015 at 2:19 pm

Red hair is often curly…but the nmost common hair colour in Britain is brown (Dark brown for Ireland) and curls are not uncommon, especially in the celtic areas. Mine’s wavy/dark brown

epicanthic fold (or Hooded lids) on the outer eyelid is actually pretty common in white people

Gerard Butler for example http://i.imgur.com/EXVn6cx.jpg

Lotus January 11, 2013 at 9:01 pm

his features are a bit exotic especially his eyes and nose

theropod June 26, 2013 at 1:27 am

Yep, like a tint of Italian or Jewish.

His ethnicity add-up pretty much seems non-exotic. I really expected ‘Italian’ up there.

Don’t forget his curly hair.

follers June 26, 2013 at 1:28 am

I’m beginning to sense a familiar party line/storyline – everybody allegedly is part Jewish, except the people who obviously actually are partially Jewish (Efron) or entirely Jewish (Bar Refaeli and Nigella Lawson).

Adam November 21, 2013 at 7:01 pm

What the hell are you talking about you moron! You think every celebrity is Jewish?

I was responding to theropod’s comment and the other comments (he was saying “No Jewish or Italian??” about several people’s ancestry) they were making at the time.

Anya April 13, 2012 at 10:05 am

He’s a funny guy and not a bad actor in the right roles but I just find him so bland looking. I would never spot him in a crowd.

Anya April 13, 2012 at 10:20 am

True, Sam is bland. I guess I just don’t go for Justin’s very fair looks!He is good with Mila Kunis in ‘Friends With Benefits’ though.

christian March 24, 2012 at 2:55 am

hmm without his curly hair i would say he looks like a typical brit

in shaped head status, he looks very european, i can imagine eastern european, anglo saxony

but his hair is too strange and exotic which can be a sign for his native background

he has strong english facial structures he looks similar to CHRIS MARTIN of coldplay or JAMES MORISSON

angelaB September 14, 2012 at 4:42 pm

I don’t know what’s more absurd, curly hair being described as “strange” and “exotic” or curly hair being a sign of being part Native American (who have bone straight hair) LOL.

Nala March 3, 2012 at 2:31 pm

It looks like he can be part Jewish.

follers September 21, 2013 at 1:35 pm

Why not entirely Jewish? You might as well go all the way.

If believe rootsweb.ancestry.com, his German ancestor was born by French parents, and Justin also Scottish and Dutch. http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=PED&db=dowfam3&id=I106291

In the clip he plays his own great great grandfather who is
immigrating from Ireland. Andy Sandberg also plays his own GG grandfather who is on the same boat.

Misaaaaaa January 18, 2012 at 2:39 am

He has a Native American ancestor from the 1700’s. So he has distant Native American ancestry.

Therefore, he is biracial like Megan Fox, Hillary Clinton, Anne Hathaway, Hilary Swank, Julia Roberts, Ashlee and Jessica Simpson, Quetin Tarantino, and Kevin Costner.

Anya April 13, 2012 at 10:15 am

Hmmmm….can you still call yourself biracial if the other race is so diluted in your bloodstream? I mean if I was 95% Japanese and 5% African could I still say I was biracial. I always thought that biracial meant you were 50/50 something while mixed race was used if the percentages were not in a 50/50 situation. I could be wrong. Even so, if I’m white and it was my GGGGG Granmother that was NA it’s a bit of a stretch to classify myself as mixed race. I think a lot of American celebrities either event or ‘play up’ very distant NA ancestry as they think this will make them seem exotic. I have an American friend who is almost full Choctaw and it drives him mad when celebrities ‘discover’ that their GGG Grandmother was NA – and mostly always it’s Cherokee!

fuzzybear44 September 20, 2013 at 7:52 am

@Anya

(Hmmmm….can you still call yourself biracial if the other race is so diluted in your bloodstream? I mean if I was 95% Japanese and 5% African could I still say I was biracial.)

I don’t see why not,it’s still two different bloodlines.Where did all these rules come from anyway?There are a few islands out there full of people who say they’re bi-racial,(and I’m willing to bet,they’re not all 50/50),more like every combo in the book

(I always thought that biracial meant you were 50/50 something while mixed race was used if the percentages were not in a 50/50 situation. )

Says who?What if you parents are blk and white in appearance,but your white parent is 15% NA,and your Black parent is 20% white(like an avg blk person here) .So are you still bi-racial or now mixed race ?Your parent are still black and white in appearance.I ask because this is America,1/3 of the white population avg 2-20% black.The black population is up to 50%,maybe more.Also each side claims to be mixed with NA.So how many are actually 50/50?

andrew September 20, 2013 at 2:13 pm

give me official data about that 1/3 of American white population that’s s avg 2-20% black

follers September 20, 2013 at 4:43 pm

Yes, that can’t be right. I have looked at genealogies of almost every major American actor. The only ones who are “white” and have black ancestry are Shailene Woodley, Hailee Steinfeld, and Penn Badgley, and maybe a handful of others. And I am not sure they are “white” to begin with (maybe Penn).

If a significant amount of Americans had black ancestry of 2% to 20%, this admixture would have to have been documented by genealogists at some point. Having a black ancestor in the 1700s wouldn’t amount to that large a percentage, and even then I haven’t really seen such mixtures documented to any significant degree.

andrew September 20, 2013 at 6:45 pm

major American actors are not representative of all “white” Americans (what about the descendants of Irish, Italian and other waves of immigrants in the 1800s) and those 3 names are not major yet. I am very dubious Badgley has any non-european heritage. In other cases it’s too distant to have relevance in physical appearance (Woodley expecially)

follers September 20, 2013 at 7:10 pm

I think American actors are representative of a wide enough sampling of Americans, including of course Irish, Italian, and so on. Badgley’s great-grandfather was Jamaican, and was at least mixed race to some degree. Anyway, my point is that the percentage of “white” Americans who have 2%-20% black ancestry is very small.

andrew September 20, 2013 at 7:21 pm

I meant there are more chances of some racial mixing in ppl whose ancestors arrived in 1600 or 1700s than in the descendants of more recent immigrants

@follers

This actually isn’t what I thought people would get worked up about.However since you guys are fixated on it fine.I basing that statement on results,by Mark D. Shriver and his fellow geneticist Bryan Sykes(who stated every white person he test in the south was part black).Also on my personal knowledge of what creoles did in the past.I mean I stated this before,Creoles often pass for full whites,and married whites(example,George Herriman and Anatole Broyard ).According to Broyard page,they est.150,000 creoles sailed away permanently into whiteness during the 1940’s alone.This is what some of the slave children looked like in the 1800’s:
http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/6858/1022943.jpg
You don’t get children like that,without some continued mixing.

(If a significant amount of Americans had black ancestry of 2% to 20%, this admixture would have to have been documented by genealogists at some point.)

It is being documented.Plus not even white know everything about their families.There were a lot of fires in the past,that burn up records.Sometime people don’t ask about their families,they just make assumptions.Take me for instance,I didn’t know I had a white granddad.I saw this mans picture everytime I went to my grandmothers house,and never bother to ask who he was.

(Having a black ancestor in the 1700s wouldn’t amount to that large a percentage, and even then I haven’t really seen such mixtures documented to any significant degree.)

I see your stuck in the 1700’s,probably thinking laws stop these kind of relations.It didn’t stop anything,white people did what they wanted.Take this family here,check the date:
http://mulattodiaries.wordpress.com/2010/06/21/black-mother-white-children/
Massachusetts actually allowed this type relation up to 1913.There were other states actually repealed their laws,and encourage black and white relationship(no i can’t remember the names right now).However you wouldn’t have people like( P. B. S. Pinchback),if that type of relationship weren’t going on.People like Adella Hunt Logan would have existed:
http://0.tqn.com/d/womenshistory/1/0/J/N/2/adella_logan.jpg
or
Mariah “Cherokee Mariah Lilly” Hunt Hunt:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=94968787
this is her father:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=19471382
Most Politicians were known to be in these types of relationship.Ones like (Richard Mentor Johnson),just didn’t care:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Mentor_Johnson
There were multiple communities of mixed race families living in place like Montana.I can’t remember the rest,going on the fly here.All i can say,is that the 1/3 thing is,probably pretty accurate.I have to cut this short,I have to feed someone.

follers September 21, 2013 at 7:21 am

George Herriman and Anatole Broyard were mostly overall in the 20th century (not that people didn’t pass for white before that). What are examples of famous “white” people with documented African-American/Creole/etc. ancestry to the 2%-20% degree? There are very few. I think famous people are a decent sample of the American population. Famous people’s genealogy is often documented and researched, so black ancestry would come up. If it’s so rare, then it must be rare among the whole American population.

follers September 21, 2013 at 7:26 am

P.S., what I meant with the 1700s, is that if a “white” person had a black ancestor in the 1700s, it wouldn’t be even 2% of their ancestry.

Anyway, when you say, “stated every white person he test in the south was part black”.

Perhaps it is something like this:
“The genetic analysis also discovered that all eight Jewish populations in the PLoS study contained three to five percent African DNA sequence patterns”, and “A parsimonious explanation for these observations is that they reflect a history in which many of the Jewish groups descend from a common ancestral population which was itself admixed with Africans”.
http://www.icr.org/article/genetics-analysis-jews-confirms-genesis/

That doesn’t mean that Ashkenazi Jews had black ancestors in the 1700s. It just means ancient African DNA (from over 2000 years back, as the study states). Perhaps it is the same for all these white people they are testing that come out part black. Ancient African ancestry, not something that has to do with America’s history.

@follers

(What are examples of famous “white” people with documented African-American/Creole/etc. ancestry to the 2%-20% degree? There are very few.)

That’s the whole point of passing ,they didn’t want to be documented.They wanted to live their lives as white people,why would they tell anybody.Look at carol channing,when she found out about her dad,she kept it quiet until old age. Adah Isaacs Menken,made up all kinds of stories about what she was.People like Robert Purvis didn’t mind nor did Romare Bearden. Elizabeth Keckley didn’t mind:
http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/4527/elizabethkeckley2g.jpg
there were schools full mixed kids,like (Wilberforce University)You want me to give other names of people,but that’s the whole point.These people change their lives,so they wouldn’t be known.We know know about these few people because they screw up,and their children or grand kids are talking.That’s where they got all the ideas for movies like(pinky,imitation of life,feast of all saints).Here are two more families whose children pass for white,Robert & Mary Lumpkin:

and
Silas & Corinna Omohundro:

Ok lets say that.However, how often do Genealogists go digging around in regular peoples lives.The only reason we’re discussing these people,is because they’re famous.Then what if there’s nothing to find,like this kid was adopted(and no one ever knew his/her real parents).What I’m saying,is there are two many variables

(For all the people you named, there are no doubt records about them or a recent ancestor being black.)

Ok,but why do we even know about them at all.It’s because unlike the vast majority of people who passed,they didn’t break ties with their families. Although they lied about who they were to the outer world,such Anatole Broyard claiming he was greek,and George Herriman I think said he was Jewish,they never broke ties with their families.Anatole Broyard didn’t even change his name,which was a common thing to do when you were leaving.although,he never told his children the true.If his daughter hadn’t written about it,we wouldn’t be talking about him now.

follers September 22, 2013 at 6:22 am

But I am talking about famous people. It is hard to believe that 1/3 of white Americans have black ancestry but only 1/30 of white American actors do (or something along those lines). I think actors are at least a somewhat reasonable sample of the population.

So you’re saying some would be hard to trace because they changed their name? Well, again, I’ve looked at a genealogy of every major white actor (and have put most on this site), and no one has been hard to trace for that reason. Breaking ties with your family also won’t stop your genealogy from being traced.

( It is hard to believe that 1/3 of white Americans have black ancestry but only 1/30 of white American actors do (or something along those lines). I think actors are at least a somewhat reasonable sample of the population.)

Well again I’m not the one making these statements.It’s the Geneticists that are making these statements,I just happen to agree.Now if more than one Geneticist is saying this stuff,it must some truth to it.

Not just their names,but everything.People here change their names,get new birth certificates etc.Why do think you on these Dna shows,they can only go back so far.Also like I said, what if there is no genealogy to trace.Just how many celebs do you have information on?

fuzzybear44 September 22, 2013 at 6:52 am

I have another question,I was looking at he tree.I see the names,but where is the part that tells you these people are blk/white,or asian etc?

follers September 22, 2013 at 6:59 am

“Just how many celebs do you have information on?”
-All major ones.

It is pretty easy to tell if someone is white, black, or Asian, after going back several generations. It may not be apparent with one or two generations, but beyond that it’s pretty obvious (and censuses list race, and eventually they would end up black).

Anyway, this discussion seems kind of pointless and not Justin-related.

I never see a pure african person with soft beautiful curly hair so lets not even go there not unless they are mixed with white then yea.

ha October 23, 2011 at 12:00 am

you are so ignorant it make me laugh. visit every country in africa then come and make that statement. what’s a pur african anyway can you tell me that?

Stefania August 21, 2011 at 12:41 pm

black people don’t have curly it kinky hair LMFAO stupid ass retard. and HISPANIC are mixs with lots of white black and indian and asian so stop saying hispanic ya ignorant

youlisten August 23, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Black people do have curls the curlest hair type. The smaller the curls the more black. That’s why when someone is mixed with black their hair is going to be curly. and that’s a (FACT). for Example sense Asians have the straightest hair type how come when they have a baby with a black person the baby’s hair is curly?

Beyonce October 30, 2011 at 9:47 pm

Blacks do have curly hair look on youtube there are plenty of them anyways most American blacks are mixed but black hair can be curly or kinky and some even have straight hair
HERE ARE SOME SINCE YOUR OBSESSED WITH BLACK PEOPLE

KL GIRL! August 2, 2011 at 2:18 pm

Why is it that an attractive white person has to always have black in them? why? Weather he looks it or not, nobody has claimed black ancestry so lets leave it at that. White people can have curly hair. Its possible. Im southeast european and a lot of people in my family have curly hair. Its possible!

james18 August 14, 2011 at 3:37 pm

black people are the only people on this planet with curly of coarse hair. If a white person has curly hair they have some trace of African ancestry

gurl August 14, 2011 at 11:12 pm

some pure irish people have curly hair. you are ignorant. i have wavy hair and it came from my english side thank you very much. they dont all have super straight hair. ignorance.

Delnegro August 14, 2011 at 11:24 pm

Yo go gurl! I’m black and I’m admitting there are russians,Italians,natives and Hispanics with curly hair just like me :)

YourHigh August 16, 2011 at 4:55 am

Your all fucking high, native american isn’t black and curly hair isn’t a black only feature. Dumb asses

marilyn July 30, 2011 at 10:15 am

I don’t think he looks part-black at all. Just because someone has curly hair doesn’t mean they had a non-white ancestor. That’s actually a pretty common trait in people with ancestry from the British Isles.

You can tell if someone has even distant African descent by looking at them in-profile, and I can say definitely that Justin Timberlake looks very Anglo-Saxon.

Leeah July 30, 2011 at 9:54 am

I’m from Memphis, TN and he looks like the typical tri-racial guys in Memphis. Like Elvis Presley and others. His hair is exactly like bi-racial people, and his feature. He was born into a poor family and that only happens in Tennessee when you have some kind of African or Native American ancestry. If you don’t believe start research the history of white indentured servants, Native prisoners, African slaves, and Negro sharecroppers.

lady jone$ July 23, 2011 at 12:33 pm

p.s. he looks like her’s mixed with black and white ’cause my cousin is mixed with black and white and he has the same hair color,skin color , feators , and every thing. lol

lady jone$ July 23, 2011 at 12:28 pm

i think J.T.(justin timberlake) is soooooooooooooooo cute i would date him if i knew him but 2 probs i’m only 9 and and i’m not aloud to date yet.

Andrea July 23, 2011 at 6:51 pm

Haha thats so cute…

FiletMignon July 22, 2011 at 9:33 am

I am black and I do not think Justin looks black at all, Just because he has kinkier hair texture does not make him black. Their are European white people who have kinkier hair, of course its not common but it happens. Also their are other people groups who sometimes have kinkier hair as well such as Arabs, Jews. If he does have any black blood probably not enough to matter (in my opinion). Americans think so small, their is a whole world of people out their with different types of features, not just black and white.

Gary July 14, 2011 at 12:25 pm

He definitely looks to have some African and Native American ancestry. I liked to see a DNA test.

Amber Berg July 21, 2011 at 5:45 am

I dont think so, I think just because he sings great and dances great, people want to make him be something he is not.

Gary July 14, 2011 at 12:24 pm

His nose and hair texture indicate some African ancestry. It has a tight/kink curly texture that tends me to believe he has some black ancestry. But many Native Americans have broader noses also. Then the last name does indicate Native American ancestry. I think he could have all of that in his ancestral make-up. I liked to see a DNA test on him.

Amanie June 26, 2011 at 10:04 pm

so fine glad hes not racsist.

The Genealogist March 23, 2011 at 6:25 am

So because he looks like an actor that is French and looks like a German person thats now being added?

He says he is Native American and English. Who the hell is running this site?

ethnic March 24, 2011 at 11:48 pm

Genealogist, if you look at the second link i provided you’ll see the French and German.

annoymous March 23, 2011 at 5:32 am

it’s really funny how these people want to embrace their nationality background now , like their native american side but years ago, they wouldn’t even mention it, bunch of fake ass people, they probably ain’t even mix with it.

Selene-The-Immortal June 3, 2011 at 6:24 pm

It said his Native American was from the 1700’s. He is less than 1% Native American, but it is still apart of his ancestry.

Logan March 8, 2011 at 10:57 pm

@ Kim you are right about one thing, and wrong about another i don’t think he looks too German but you are right about the French Justin has very similiar features to two other French ive seen.

Here is one of the French models Justin phenotype wise reminds me of his name is Laurent Albucher, definately not so much in the pic posted from this bio but younger Justin? like in the “Gone” music video? definately

http://s51.radikal.ru/i131/0908/7c/9b4efaf9b4d9.jpg

Same wide forhead, same eyebrows

The second guy of French descent who looks even more similiar to Justin, is Ryan Phillippe when he was younger, an american actor of French descent. I can definately see some Gaul (French). Justins nose is also a dead give away to his french heritage his nose in the middle has a slight hump (not drastic but noticeable) and then it recedes and rises up a bit at the tip. This is very common in the french and ive seen that nose of several of them.

Also look at Justins chin in the photo posted on this bio with him standing next to the bearded dude and then look at the chin of this french model

http://i443.photobucket.com/albums/qq159/BohemianScientist/Laurent-Albucher1-1.jpg

look familiar? ahaha

Kim March 8, 2011 at 7:59 pm

I always thought Justin had to be Irish, most of the good White american singers with strong voices are usualy Irish ie: Chris Cornell, Kurt Cobain, Layne Stayley, Kelly Clarkson, James Hetfield, Aubrey (Danity Kane), Bruce Springsteen etc

This is an honest shocker, Justin looks good, it no doubt came from his French or German heritage cause he doesn’t look English or Native at all its rare for English people to look good like Justin and ive seen french and german people who could compare to Justins phenotype LOL!

I’m gonna say he’s more German than anything, that blonde hair, those eyes his structure looks German. Its rare for English & French to have blonde hair.

The Genealogist February 24, 2011 at 6:35 pm

Typical English/Anglo features.

Logan March 8, 2011 at 9:35 pm

I always chuckle when i see people say things like “typical Anglo features” or “typical celtic features” Listen. The true Anglo phenotype is dead are you aware of how much the English have mixed due to countless invasions and conquering? the English are as mixed as the Italians. The only whites who can claim still having feats of old is the Scandinavians and places like Iceland but England? notta, not when you have people who can go from a similiar phenotype to Christian Bale, to a phenotype like Russell Brands, to a phenotype like David Beckham.

England is FAR from being only Anglo anymore. Americans ESPEACIALY are far from being Anglo anymore.

angela January 29, 2011 at 7:06 pm

What’s the point of adding “distant Native American” heritage from centuries ago? Its not relevant.

Anonymous August 12, 2010 at 2:49 am

He has distant French and German. His British ancestry is English. Ancestry.http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=PED&db=dowfam3&id=I106291

pinksghetti April 22, 2010 at 5:25 am

I think he looks like a much lighter version of Usher sort of. He has super curly hair which is not a Native American trait.

Black MON April 22, 2010 at 4:56 am

Hes part black even if he knows it or not it is so obvious,everybody that does not want to claim black says native american all these so called natives are actually black

Coming Out October 9, 2010 at 6:11 am

agree, not necessarily on defaulting to native american but that he is some part black

brianna January 17, 2011 at 1:23 am

IKR. Everyone wants to be natives these days. XDD

angela January 29, 2011 at 7:08 pm

Just because he has thick curly hair doesn’t mean he’s part Black.

And I’m sure if Timberlake was part Black, in this particular case, he’d probably brag about it (as it would give him more ‘credibility’).

fuzzybear January 30, 2011 at 3:28 am

To angela

Maybe,maybe not.Or he might not know.Parents and grandparents don’t always tell the truth.Example(Anatole Broyard)who did tell his kids,and (carol channing)who didn’t find out until her father was dying I think,then she didn’t tell anyone until she got old

a mixed timberlake February 2, 2011 at 12:07 am

well i’m a black/mixed timberlake on my mother’s side where i got my name her father was black, white and native american, so i dont know if that ads to the possibility of him being part black, i’ve never herd of any connection to him in my family, but you never know since families back then didn’t talk about racial mixture its possible ALOT of people are mixed and don’t know it, i new i was part native american but my mother didn’t tell me i was part white until i had spoken to my grandmother and she told me things that i had never herd before, i asked my mother to tell me what my grandmother was talking about, my mother said she new we were part white but she didn’t think it was something that we should talk about, but then she went on to tell me how my grandfather had naturally straight hair and how when my grandmother met his side of the family she was so nervous because they were ” white ” people, or they were mixed people who looked mostly white or something like that………

but i have always noticed that when Justin Timberlake’s hair gets long it gets kinda round like an ” afro “, if you think about it his hair is kinda like a person who is half black and half white…

fuzzybear February 2, 2011 at 3:59 am

To: a mixed timberlake

That’s funny,my grandmother told me something when I was little.She caught me laughing at some Hispanic kids that were talking.She said I don’t know why your laughing at them,your part of the same thing they are.I ask my mom,and she says don’t pay attention to your Medea because she drinks.It turns out my mother wasn’t telling the truth,her father was latino.However since she was raised by her stepfather,she saw him as her daddy

Dorrie March 4, 2011 at 6:34 pm

He was one of the nominees on the NAACP Image awards tonight so he is “of color.” I used to love him–but not if he’s passing. A man in my law school was black and passed for white. Pitiful.

jf April 13, 2011 at 3:16 pm

Not Native American. NOT Black.
Some people have no common sense. If he Justin were trying to pass for white, don’t you think he would have avoided all his black cultural associations in his music, dancing etc? Like another person said, being part black would be of benefit to him in terms of “credibility”, so there’s little chance he’d hide it.

Wtf April 13, 2011 at 5:26 pm

@jf:why would he say away,Elvis didn’t.Also he would be seen as a white with black flavor,which would serve him better
