The Chilling True Story Of How The Backstreet Boys And NSYNC Were Scammed By Their Manager

While BTS, One Direction and the Jonas Brothers have taken the world by storm in recent years, little can compare to the fame and influence held by the boy bands of the mid-1990s. Of these, two groups far outshone the rest – the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC. With their slick looks and choreographed dance routines, these young men seemed to have it all. Only later did they  – and we – realize that the musical megastars were enmeshed in a terrible scam.

Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson are better known to their many fans as the Backstreet Boys. The group was formed in 1993 following an audition process in Kissimmee, Florida. And just three years later, following the release of their debut album in 1996, the band were enjoying international success.
