Rolex: Timberlake's Haunting Watch: Why Cameron Diaz Gave Drew Barrymore a Rolex

Cameron Diaz Gave Drew Barrymore $12000 Vintage 18-Karat Rose Gold Rolex Oyster Watch That Had "I Love You" Engraved on the Case and Which She Had Bought for Her Former Love Justin Timberlake

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 29, 2008) - Rolex: Why did Cameron Diaz give Drew Barrymore a $12000 vintage 18-karat rose gold Rolex Oyster watch that had 'I love you' engraved on the case? Reported on the Celebrity Blog and other popular sites across the web, it turns out that Diaz had bought the watch for her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake's 26th birthday on January 31. However, the day before they were to celebrate, Timberlake broke up with Diaz. Heartbroken, Diaz held on to the expensive Rolex Oyster watch, but it reminded her daily of her lost love. Later, when Timberlake started dating Jessica Biel, the relationship enraged Diaz. The drama began on the Hollywood scene:

Us Weekly reported that Cameron Diaz went on a jealous rage following the Golden Globe Awards after witnessing her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake get flirty with Jessica Biel at the Creative Artists Agency-sponsored bash at Sunset Towers. "Cameron was across the room giving them the evil eye," a source revealed. "It was like high school." After attempts by Drew Barrymore to cool her down, the jealousy erupted like a volcano. "All of a sudden she just lost it," one of the many witnesses told the tab. "She came up and started yelling at Jessica." Another guest added, "She started saying all these nasty things to him about Jessica like, 'What is she? Your new fu**ing girlfriend? Look at her!'"

With her heart broken, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cameron had bought for Justin only reminded her of the pain. Best friends with Drew Barrymore since "Charlie's Angels," Cameron gave the watch to Drew on her 32nd birthday. Since Drew recently had split up with her lover Fabrizio Moretti, the drummer of the alternative rock band The Strokes, the two actors were able to commiserate together. A source said: "Cameron didn't want the watch so she gave it to Drew." Although she initially offered to pay for it, Drew Barrymore eventually accepted the gift of the $12000 vintage 18-karat rose gold Rolex Oyster watch that had 'I love you' engraved on the case.

Justin Timberlake may have moved on to another beautiful Hollywood starlet, but he definitely lost out on a stylish timepiece. Diaz and Barrymore, who have become even closer since their breakups, have now made a pact to get back to their 'date weights.' Cameron Diaz's next boyfriend should be smart enough to stick around for the precious gift of a gold Rolex Oyster watch.
