Timberlake Has Throat Operation

LATEST: Pop hunk JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE underwent surgery on his throat yesterday (05MAY05) to remove nodules which threatened to destroy his singing career.

Timberlake allegedly discovered the condition while recording his latest single SIGNS with rapper SNOOP DOGG and immediately contacted doctors, who banned him from straining his voice until medics at Los Angeles' Cedars Sinai Hospital had dealt with the problem.

The CRY ME A RIVER star reportedly had the operation yesterday morning and is expected to stay in hospital overnight.

A close friend tells British newspaper THE SUN, "Assuming the routine procedure goes to plan he will be home resting up for the weekend. He will not be able to sing or talk loudly for a while.

"He'll rest up before heading into the studio. He couldn't risk recording without having the operation first."

Timberlake joins a list of stars including GERI HALLIWELL, ROD STEWART, DAME JULIE ANDREWS and JOSS STONE who have had operations to remove throat nodules.
