Justin Timberlake was reportedly sober when he was filmed performing in Las Vegas with bloodshot eyes weeks before his DWI arrest.

Despite fans assuming the “Mirrors” crooners was under the influence during his Forget Tomorrow World Tour at the T-Mobile Arena last month, sources told TMZ Monday that he was not.

According to the insider, Timberlake’s red and wide-eyed appearance was too overly analyzed by critics looking to poke fun at him as he’s always completely sober for every show.

The source explained that the former *NYSNC member, 43, must stay clean while performing because there is too much at risk.

Insiders rushed to Timberlake’s defense after the pop star was slammed when a video showed him with bloodshot eyes while performing in Sin City.

Responding to the clip of the father of two, one person commented, “he doesn’t look okay……..”

“Those eyes though… dude is either not slept in a week or is going for round 2,” another wrote.

Other fans made fun of Timberlake as they commented his behavior would “ruin the tour,” mocking what he told the Gen Z cop who didn’t recognize him during his June 18 arrest in Sag Harbor, N.Y.

At the time of the SexyBack singer’s arrest, a source told us, “Justin said under his breath, ‘This is going to ruin the tour.’ The cop replied, ‘What tour?’ Justin said, ‘The world tour.’”
