LOS ANGELES (AFP) - A homeless man who has made a plea for Justin Timberlake to help him after being mocked in a video is not suing the singer-actor for financial damages, his lawyer said on Tuesday.
"There's no lawsuit here against Justin Timberlake. We're not seeking a financial deal, it's a criminal case," Ms Gloria Allred told AFP.
