Lou Pearlman Has Died in Prison!

Lou Pearlman, the ever sketchy producer of 'NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, has died in prison, according to US Weekly. He was 62 years old. Pearlman was in prison after scamming half a billion dollars out of investors and was sentenced to twenty-five years behind bars about eight years ago. There had also been chatter that he had molested and harassed several of his proteges. 

His passing should come as a minor shock as it was reported that he had suffered a stroke six years prior to his death causing him to reevaluate his lifestyle and go on to lose nearly 100 pounds. Former 'NSYNC member, Lance Bass, had this to say upon hearing the news: "Word is that #LouPearlman has passed away. He might not have been a stand-up businessman, but I wouldn't be doing what I love today w/out his influence. RIP Lou." Pearlman was also involved in the careers of LFO and O-Town, whom has seen a resurgence since their time on "Making the Band," an MTV show that Pearlman also assisted with. More news, if there is any, as it comes in.
