Justin Timberlake is regarded as one of the most popular singers and is known for his diverse artistry in songwriting and vocals. The singer has been arrested for driving while intoxicated on New York's Long Island. According to a report in PTI, Justin Timberlake said that he had a tough week after the recent arrest. 

The Suit & Tie hitmaker gave a heartfelt speech to fans at his concert at the United Center in Chicago over the weekend. “We’ve been together through ups and downs, lefts and rights. It’s been a tough week, but you’re here and I’m here, and nothing can change this moment right now,” Timberlake told the crowd at his first concert after the release.

The 43-year-old pop star was taken into custody in New York on Tuesday for passing a stop sign and failing to stay on the right side of the road. He was released later in the morning after being arraigned in Sag Harbor, on the eastern end of Long Island.
