Boy Band Creator/Diddler Outed

Vanity Fair is claiming that Lou Pearlman, the creator of N*Sync and the Backstreet Boys, was a sexual predator. Page Six has juicy excerpts.

Pearlman was “definitely inappropriate” with Nick Carter. Nick’s mom, Jane Carter, wouldn’t get into specifics, but said, “Certain things happened and it almost destroyed our family. I tried to warn everyone. I tried to warn all the mothers . . . I tried to expose him for what he was years ago.”

Tim Christofore, a member of Take 5, recalls that during a sleepover at Pearlman’s house, the music czar swan-dived onto his and another boy’s bed and wrestled with them wearing only in a towel, which came off. “We were like, ‘Ooh, Lou, that’s gross.’ What did I know? I was 13,” Christofore told Vanity Fair.

Rich Cronin, lead singer of LFO, recalled Pearlman told him of an “ancient massage technique that if I massage you and we bond in a certain way, it will strengthen your aura.”

I suppose this shouldn’t surprise anybody. But still, ew.

Update: Vanity Fair posted the whole thing online: Mad About the Boys.
