Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel just stepped out for the first time since their heartbreaking scandal last month.

But unfortunately, things looked tense, to say the least.

Justin made major headlines last month when he was photographed holding hands with his "Palmer" co-star, Alisha Wainwright.

They had been out drinking at a bar in New Orleans.

In images obtained by "The Sun," Alisha was seen resting her hands on Justin's knee.

It didn't help matters that Timberlake was reportedly not wearing his wedding ring...

An eyewitness added fuel to the fire with their account.

“They were smiling and laughing. At one stage, he grabbed her hand and rested it on his knee," they said.

"She then gently started stroking his leg. Then he clutched her hand with both of his and was playing with her hands.”

Yikes!

This information didn't bode well with fans who were left desperate for answers.

Justin broke his silence on the controversy a few days later.

"I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people that I love,” he began in his statement posted to Instagram.

“A few weeks ago, I displayed a strong lapse in judgment—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my costar.”

Justin continued, adding, “I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son."

"I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be."

Justin concluded his statement by writing:

"This was not that. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it.”

Since all this drama went down, fans have wondered whether Jessica would forgive her husband or not.

Well, it looks like we have our answer since the couple was recently spotted having dinner at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.

Based on the couple's body language, onlookers said that all "all was forgiven" between them.

In addition to laughing a lot, Justin was reportedly very attentive to his wife by rubbing her shoulders and leaning in towards her.

They even shared food off of each other's plates.

That's not to say that things were totally peachy-keen, though.

One onlooker said that things looked "tense" at different points throughout the night.

"There was a couple of times when it seemed the conversation was a bit tense with both looking deep in thought," they said.

This makes sense considering how a source close to the couple revealed weeks ago that Jessica is "embarrassed" by the whole situation.

It was even her who encouraged Justin to release his public apology on Instagram.

According to that same source, "she felt embarrassed by his actions and wanted him to take accountability."

Regardless, we just hope that they're nowhere near to saying "bye-bye-bye."

Until we get that confirmation, let's all take a moment to remember their happier times, like when Jessica dressed up as Justin from his NSYNC days for Halloween!
