The SexyBack singer, who performed two concerts in Brisbane at the weekend, snubbed fans waiting outside the Jade Buddha restaurant despite promising them autographs on Friday (26.10.07).

Timberlake, 26, told admirers who had spotted him in the waterfront eatery he would sign autographs after lunch, but later made a hasty exit from the restaurant without returning to see the fans.

He also reportedly failed to leave a tip despite being given a free USD140 meal.

The singer, whose behaviour was described as “surly”, also insulted one photographer as he left the restaurant, according to Brisbane’s Courier Mail newspaper.

The excited paparazzo told Timberlake: “If my kid could see me now, he’d be so excited.”

Timberlake reportedly replied: “I can’t believe they let you reproduce children.”

When Timberlake was asked if he was enjoying his stay in Brisbane, he grunted in response and ignored fans who were excitedly waving and shouting to him.

The following day, Australian radio station B105 managed to telephone Timberlake’s hotel room but when the DJ identified himself, Timberlake moodily hung up.

The singer-and-actor is notorious for his hatred of photographers and has previously flown into fits of rage at paparazzi.
