Timberlake to buy London pub as Jay-Z employs cigar expert
Justin Timberlake wants to buy a London pub.
The 'Suit & Tie' hitmaker is looking to become a landlord of a drinking house while he is in the capital for the Yahoo! Wireless Festival - where he will be performing two concerts, including one with Jay-Z, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in July - and the singer is said to have already set his sights on an establishment.
"Justin likes the idea of having his name above the door, he's looked into buying historic East End boozer The Blind Beggar for a while. But it isn't likely," a source told The Sun newspaper.
Justin, 32, will also be joining his rapper friend for their 'Legends of the summer stadium tour later this year.
Jay-Z - real name Shawn Carter - has hired a cigar expert to join the pair every step of the way to roll a smoke for guests at each venue.
"Jay met this cigar expert at a friend's private party recently. He had been hired to roll cigars for guests in a smoking room," said an insider previously.
"They were chatting for ages about the origins of tobacco and all the different types and then Jay-Z offered to have him on board for the tour dates."
