London [UK], June 23: US pop star Justin Timberlake admitted "it's been a tough week" at his first concert since he was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. The 43-year-old "Cry Me A River" singer was arrested in Sag Harbor, a wealthy village in the Hamptons in New York state, on Tuesday after allegedly failing to pause at a stop sign and failing to stay in the right lane. In videos widely circulated on social media, Timberlake speaks about the past week while addressing fans at a gig in Chicago on Friday night. He said: "It's been a tough week ... I know sometimes I'm hard to love but you keep on loving me and I love you right back." Timberlake's lawyer said he was looking forward to "vigorously defending" the singer in a statement shared with the PA news agency on Wednesday. The musician, who first found fame as a member of boyband NSYNC, was pulled over on June 18 at 12:37 am (0437 GMT) after police saw him "failing to stop at a duly posted stop sign and failing to maintain his lane of travel" while driving a 2025 BMW, a statement from Sag Harbor Village Police Department said.
