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.

She has actual jowls. With longer ears, she'd look just like a basset hound.

Clearly that is a typo. There is no way that woman is 53. Now 73 is more believable.

looks like she's had a very rough 53 years .. she has that hard, aged face that alcoholics or prostitutes or alcoholic prostitutes have.

Amazing family resemblance! It sort of looks like Justin Timberlake put on a wig and then started melting.

They should arrest Justin Timberlake for his tasteless SNL skit about Hugo Chavez' death.

"Paul is a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies."

He's part of an ownership group that includes about two dozen people. His stepfather.
