Lance & Joey Clear Up *NSYNC Rift Rumors
Earlier today a number of outlets including Perez Hilton and Us Weekly were reporting that a source close to Justin said that the other members of *NSYNC weren’t invited to the wedding because Justin feared an *NSYNC reunion would overshadow the nuptials and he “hates Lance now.” Others claimed that Justin was embarrassed that Lance and Joey were on Dancing With the Stars.
It was fantastic hearing the two together – hint, hint, wink, wink – but getting down to the gritty business of dispelling the rumors, Lance stated that none of the guys from *NSYNC were invited to the wedding which was a very private affair and very small. The group celebrated at Justin’s engagement party, though Joey had to miss that event due to prior commitments. There are no hard feelings among group members and there is no hate among the guys who all recently celebrated Chris’ birthday together.
Lance and Joey also congratulated Chris Kirkpatrick on his engagement. Though he popped the question in Italy, Chris was not attending Justin’s wedding. The guys also congratulated JC’s brother, Tyler, on his marriage this past weekend as well.
UPDATE: Here is the audio recording of Lance and Joey talking Justin, Chris, JC’s brother and Dancing With the Stars. Thank you to both @ShortyUK81 and @joeysdramaqueen for recording for us!
UPDATE 2: People magazine just announced Chris’ engagement with comments from Mr. Kirkpatrick himself. He told the magazine that the rumors that the members of *NSYNC were not invited to Justin’s wedding are overblown.
He told People: “He didn’t want the wedding to be an ‘NSync reunion, and I totally understand that,” says Kirkpatrick, who hung out with Timberlake at a charity event earlier this month. “I already had plans to be in Italy anyway. It was just a coincidence that I was there when Justin got married. There’s really nothing negative about any of it.”
