I saw a documentary about him. It portrayed him as awful. He swindled those guys.

He was a con man. He took horrible advantage of not only the Backstreet Boys but other boy bands as well. He was in jail for fraud as well.

Talk about keeping to the facts. The Federal Bureau of Prisons said the disgraced businessman died on Friday, providing no other details. He was 62.

This is one of the times that someone with so much talent and an eye for finding it mingles with a criminal mind. There was no reason for him to scam people and end up in jail. May he rest in peace.
