Justin Timberlake takes Marine as date to awards ceremony
Justin Timberlake took a US Marine as his date to an awards ceremony this weekend.
The singer attended the Guys Choice Awards on Saturday (June 2) but took Marine Kelsey De Santis as his guest.
Timberlake had been asked by De Santis back in 2011 to attend a Marine ball with her - an offer which he accepted.
E! Online reports that the singer and actor returned the favour by asking her to the awards ceremony on Saturday, where he won the Troops' Choice and Entertainer of the Year awards. Speaking as he collected his awards, Timberlake said:
"It's amazing actually to be standing on stage with these American heroes. As some of you know I'm usually a wiseass, but in all seriousness, I can tell you receiving this award from our troops is seriously one of the greatest honors that I or any American could receive."
De Santis meanwhile told E! Online that Timberlake is a "genuine" person. She said:
"He's a genuine person. There's no doubt in my mind (he deserves this award)."
