Ontario-born pop singer Nicole Appleton joined All Saints, a four-piece musical group just like the Spice Women or Little Combine, in 1996. The band’s eponymous debut album is the third best-selling woman group album in UK historical past, that includes tracks like “Bootie Name” and “By no means Ever.” Appleton and her bandmates, Shaznay Lewis, Melanie Blatt, and sister Natalie Appleton, had been on the top of their fame when Nicole and Justin Timberlake had their notorious night time out.
A newspaper clipping circulating on-line reveals paparazzi snapshots of Timberlake, 19, and Appleton, 25, strolling down the sidewalk and sitting at the back of a automotive, each of their heads down. The article, titled “Nic and man act so shy,” experiences that the pair was touring from Mayfair Membership in London to St. Martin’s Lane Resort. The unknown writer acknowledges Timberlake and Spear’s relationship and Appleton’s then-recent break up from her fiancé Robbie Williams (by way of X, previously Twitter).
Regardless of the tabloid fodder the photographs offered, Timberlake and Appleton’s relationship does not seem to have lasted far past that night time. Later that 12 months, the All Saints singer started courting Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher. The couple welcomed their first and solely son, Gene, a 12 months and a half later and finally married in a small, non-public ceremony in 2008.
