Boy Band King Turns Jailhouse Snitch

|

Your average rapper may look down on notorious boy band manager/current jailbird Lou Pearlman for reporting conversations between fellow inmates—not to mention allegedly molesting boys both Backstreet and not. But try and put yourself in Pearlman’s sweaty shoes. Can you imagine facing a 25 year sentence for defrauding investors of $300 million? Can you imagine potentially owing an extra $400 million in damages? Can you imagine having managed Aaron Carter? The man Justin Timberlake once called a “monetary rapist” clearly wants to get this jail time over with so he find a way to earn back (or avoid paying) that half-billion or so, and if he has to rat out a cellmate or two to hurry things up, it’s worth risking some Oz-style payback.
