Well now, Justin is addressing what happened in a video in an Instagram story of him getting a facial.

"A lot of people thought she was invading my space," Justin said. "That's actually not the truth. We were both flirting — well, I was flirting — with the chef because he was cute."

"I was pushing her out of the way so I could have a 1-on-1 moment with the chef. People took it the wrong way."

"When I tell you, [Jenna] is one of the nicest, most welcoming people that I've ever met. Whenever I'm on the show, it's because she and Hoda request me," he continued.

"They're so good to me. She is awesome. She's a big champion of mine. I hate that people are taking it out of context."
