Lance Bass Reveals He Was 'Inappropriately Touched' by a 'Pedophile' During His 'N SYNC Days

Lance Bass opens up about being inappropriately touched when he was younger during a segment on The Meredith Vieira Show on Wednesday (October 7) in New York City.

The 36-year-old former boy bander was discussing Ashley Judd‘s recent sexual harassment allegations when he revealed that he was too was once on the receiving end of that.

“It happens to men, too,” Lance said. “It’s a two-way street. It happened to me when I was 16 or 17 years old, when we started there was someone that we worked with that was inappropriately touching us.”

Referring to the time he was in the group ‘N SYNC, Lance said, “I wasn’t even aware then, at 16, that this guy was a pedophile and he was touching me. Oddly, I didn’t feel victimized at the time because I was very aware of it.”

“With the guys, we would talk about it; we would kind of joke about it,” Lance added. “But it’s not a joking thing. But as a kid, it was just odd. I’m glad that we were aware of it, and we didn’t feel victimized at the time.”
