Are Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake having marriage problems? JT's grandmother Sadie Bomar recently spoke to British newspaper The Mirror about the singer's marriage. And as far as grandma is concerned, it's be a rough time for Biel and Timberlake.

Speaking to The Sun via The Mirror, Bomar said that Biel and Timberlake love each other but that spending so much time apart has caused a strain on the relationship. “I think Jessica finds that really tough. She’s on her own a good deal,” Timberlake's grandmother said. "If he’s not coming back at night that puts a strain on things, of course it does. It’s hard to keep it all going but you have to have faith to keep it all going."

As for the reports that Biel is pregnant? Not so fast, says JT's grandma. “They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it’s hard going,” she said. “I’m sure when it’s right to have children they will, but not now."

When the 31-year-old brunette beauty sat out of the People's Choice Awards in January when her husband was honored, there has been non-stop speculation that the Hollywood couple is heading for pregnancy or divorce.

Ever since the couple tied the knot in an opulent ceremony in Italy in October 2012, rumors have run rampant of relationship trouble. But the last few months have been worse than usual. Biel missed the American Music Awards in November, and didn't attend the after-party for Timberlake's Saturday Night Live hosting gig in December 2013.

When the rumor mill went into overdrive in November, Biel was noticeably miffed that fans and the press were speculating about marriage problems. "I'm watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet," Biel tweeted at the time.

Despite recent relationship rumors, Timberlake gushed about his bride last April to Ellen DeGeneres. “Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn’t see me looking and I have this moment where I’m like ‘If you never make a good decision … if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision,’” Timberlake told DeGeneres.

The “Suit & Tie” singer seemed very happy, adding: “It’s nice to marry your best friend. It suits me.”

JT's grandmother thinks his marriage to Biel suits him, too. “I have faith in them," she told the British newspaper, "and I believe they love each other dearly but I know they need time together."
