You may have heard some of the details of the pricey Italian wedding last weekend of stars Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, but one tidbit that's surfaced isn't so pretty.

A Los Angeles real estate agent and longtime Timberlake friend, Justin Huchel, put together a little video tribute to the happy couple, and it included "gag' segments of interviews with homeless people and other locals sending their best regards. You know, since they couldn't make it on the private jet to the reported $6.5 million gathering.

Gawker managed to get a hold of the video--something Huchel, or, more specifically, Huchel's legal team, isn't too pleased about--and describe the 8:30 minute clip as featuring

"street interviews with ten people, many of them obviously homeless, premised on the idea that they were friends of Timberlake and Biel's who, for whatever reason, couldn't quite swing the trip to the Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia for the nuptials."

Gawker adds: "Some of [the people interviewed] are obviously intoxicated, mentally ill, or both, and at least one of them is entirely incapable of speaking."A short 20 second clip posted on Gawker shows a couple such moments, including a shirtless man in Pershing Square greeting Justin and Jessica, and some advice from a transsexual out for the evening on the city streets.

Huchel's lawyers told Gawker: "Mr. Huchel made [the] video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake's wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake's knowledge."
