Ex-Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC Manager Lou Pearlman Dies
For any boyband enthusiast from the late 90's and early 00's, you probably hated Lou Pearlman. We know he's the man responsible for Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC.
The 62 year old former manager died while serving his 25 year prison sentence. He was currently at the Federal Correctional Institute in Texarkana, Texas, on Friday.
YAHOO News says "Pearlman was convicted in 2008 for his involvement in a massive Ponzi scheme that swindled 1,700 investors out of a half-billion dollars.
Pearlman was also sued by most of his acts – the Backstreet Boys, NSync, O-Town, LFO, Take 5, Natural and Aaron Carter – for fraud and misrepresentation."
Regardless of their past ill feelings towards eachother, former employees of Pearlman ie: Justin Timberlake,Lance Bass, Howie D. and Chris Kirkpatrick expressed their condolences via Twitter.

Erik-Michael Estrada from O-Town took to Twitter to express more feelings of Pearlman's passing.

Even Baby Carter, Aaron Carter, got in the mix.
