Chris Kirkpatrick & A.J. McLean once dated the same girl
Do you remember the longstanding feud *NSYNC vs Backstreet Boys? Well, now it turns out that basically the two boy bands hated each other in the late ’90s because two of them once dated the same girl.
To be exact, *NSYNC singer Chris Kirkpatrick revealed to Billboard that he once wanted to “kill” Backstreet Boys star A.J. McLean for dating his ex-girlfriend.
Chris revealed he found out A.J. had been badmouthing him to a woman he had recently parted ways with, for this reason he was ready to beat up McLean when he took up with issue with his pop rival face-to-face.
“I wanted to punch A.J.’s lights out for a little while. I was dating a girl, I broke up with her and he started dating her,” Chris told Billboard, adding “I guess he was talking smack to her about me, so I confronted him on it and wanted to kick his a**.”
In the end Kirkpatrick let his grudge against McLean go, but he doesn’t recall why: “I don’t know how it got resolved – I saw him out one night and said I wanted to kill him, but I said, ‘Let’s get a beer… and now we’re really good friends,” he explains.
