The con man who robbed Backstreet Boys and NSYNC Blind

If you were a teenager in the late 1990s to early 2000s, you couldn’t escape the appeal of the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC.

The boy bands were a cultural phenomenon, influencing fashion and music trends and shaping the sound of pop music for a generation. Backstreet Boys sold 130 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling boy bands of all time, with NSYNC following closely behind with 70 million records sold.

The man behind the bands was a larger than life character named Lou Pearlman – literally, he’s said to weigh about 330 pounds.

Initially a hot air balloon salesman (we’re not kidding), Pearlman went on to become one of the most successful talent managers and record producers of all time, casting and training the biggest boy bands in the world.

Pearlman was said to have a net worth of over $300 million at the height of his success – until it all came crashing down like the Hindenburg. Pearlman died penniless in prison in 2016.
