The singer, who will headline the halftime show for Super Bowl LII on Sunday in Minneapolis, filmed himself at a Target store in St. Paul filling his shopping cart with gifts and necessary items.

“I'm doing my Target run. Got socks, got PJ Masks -- my kid loves them, got Fruity Pebbles -- because I love them, got Reese's Pieces -- shout out to ‘E.T.’ the movie,” Timberlake said on the video.

Timberlake, whose latest album is called “Man of the Woods,” signed five copies of a limited vinyl edition of the record, saying he was going to leave it with the store manager. Fans who wanted the disc had to give a special code to the manager, Timberlake said in the video.

It is also reported that White texted a friend asking for her medical records: “I need to see the layout … I will need to work on it before I give it to him.”

A ruse, needed to support her lie, in July 2013.”
