RICHMOND, Va. — Justin Timberlake followed through on a promise to take a Marine to her unit’s annual ball.
The singer and actor posted a photo along with a letter on his website Sunday that the Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, Va., was “one of the most moving evenings I’ve ever had.”
Cpl. Kelsey De Santis had invited Timberlake through a YouTube video to Saturday night’s event and Timberlake accepted. Timberlake wore a tuxedo to the ball at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.
De Santis, Timberlake wrote, “seemed like she was nervous about the whole evening and if I was going to enjoy myself. ‘Are you ok?’ she asked 2 or 3 times. ‘I hope you are having fun. I know you will once my crew of friends get here to the table.’ I have to tell you, it’s not every day that I meet a 23 year old girl and she’s more worried about if I’m having fun or if I’m comfortable!”
Timberlake’s “Friends With Benefits” co-star, Mila Kunis, earlier this year accepted a similar invitation to a Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C.
