Justin Timberlake“s got some serious family drama back home in Tennessee — where his aunt is currently locked up after allegedly stealing thousands of dollars from his parents in a check forging scheme.

According to law enforcement, Jane Harless — whose brother Paul married Justin”s mother when the singer was 5 — was arrested in Shelby County, TN on Friday after cops say they found evidence she forged more than 100 bad checks.

Officials believe … 53-year-old Jane was writing checks out to her herself and forging her brother”s signature — stealing more than $64,000 from JT”s mom and step-dad (pictured above) from 2011 to 2013. 

Jane reportedly worked for her brother before 2011 but it”s unclear what she did … or why they parted ways.

FYI — Paul is a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies … and a partner in Justin”s Mirimichi golf course.

We reached out to JT”s people for comment — so far, no word back.
