Jessica Biel told the internet to “calm down” on Sunday night over her absence from the American Music Awards. Biel’s husband, Justin Timberlake, won several awards at the show for soul/R&B artist, soul/R&B album, and favorite pop/rock male artist.
Timberlake also performed “Drink You Away,” an alcohol-infused anthem from his latest album. Fans took to Twitter to question Biel’s noticeable absence:
But seriously, where is Jessica Biel? I’d never leave JT’s side if he were my husband! #AMAs

Jessica Biel responded to the questions quickly, though she didn’t say exactly why she was absent. She wrote:
I’m watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet.

While Biel’s post didn’t give a reason for her absence, it did appear to allay rumors that she and Timberlake were going through rocky times. Users immediately responded, defending the actress and commenting on how silly it was she even had to tweet a message about it:
