There’s some turmoil in Justin Timberlake‘s family circle down south. His aunt Jane Harless, whose brother Paul married JT’s mom Lynn when the singer was just five, has been jailed after being accused of stealing thousands from his parents in a check forgery scam. Ugh!

TMZ reports that Harless, 53, was arrested in Shelby County, Tenn. on Friday, Sept. 13 after the authorities discovered evidence that she had written over 100 bad checks. In the scheme, Harless wrote checks to herself and forged her brother’s signature. Her theft totaled around $64,000 from 2011 through 2013.

Harless use to be employed by her brother, who is a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies NBA team and is a partner in JT’s Mirimichi golf course, but the circumstances of why that was no longer the case are unclear.

JT should consider himself lucky that his aunt did not have access to his financial statements or accounts because she could have done some serious damage.

It’s always sad when things like this happen among families. So far, JT has not issued any statement about the situation and it’s not likely that he will.
