And yet somehow their butts remain slapless today! Sigh, the world is so turned around sometimes…

Yes, unfortunately it is true. Two of your favorite boy bands are facing a gruesome lawsuit.

On June 20, the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block graced Memphis, TN with their sexy presence at the Fedex Forum.

But while the fans were screaming their lungs out, an unlucky stagehand fell victim to an open manhole in the stage. Ouch!!

According to William Wesley Styron, there were no warning signs or cones put in place before he fell 13 feet, fracturing his skull in the process.

Requiring traumatic brain surgery, Styron stated he suffered seizures, convulsions, and a complete loss of consciousness. So now he's suing the boy bands for $5M to go toward medical bills (and emotional rejuvenation)!

The boys deny the allegations, insisting William should have simply watched where he was going. Hmm… well, we don't exactly know if the bands are to blame for this kind of problem. But there definitely should have been something of caution in place.

Wonder what Fedex King Fred Smith would say about this! He and his family live in Memphis (his daughter produced The Blind Side). And we'd be willing to bet they wouldn't be too happy knowing shenanigans like this happen in the city's jeweled arena — named after his legacy!!

    god you really are an idiot your stories are so mis-leading. Just taking your horse shit at face it would appear that the crappy not boy bands are the only people subject to the suit. That lie is of course just that a LIE. You also imply that FEDEX and it's CEO would be unaware of this claim. I will guarantee that the not boy bands are last in line. the promoter, site operator, unions, probably the city, and anyone else with deep pockets. Very similar to the case here in Indy when the stage scaffolding collapsed and sugarland was involved in the suit. Finally as in 98% of these type claims, where multiple entities are being sued, the insurance companies will all be pointing their finger at the other, but eventually there will be a negotiated settlement with the claimant

    MARIO, you are such a fucking drama queen

    What a moron! How is it their fault? It's the fault of the guy who left it opened. He should really sue the Fedex Forum but they do't have that deeps of pockets as BSB or NKOTB

    I have never understood people who sue the actual band because they got hurt. The band has nothing to do with the stage setup. Like in Indiana when Sugarland was about to go on and the stage collapsed because of WEATHER. They didn't control the weather or the stage. Everybody just says lets sue the band because they have money. Its complete bullshit!

    Excuse me, 5 million? Unless this man is permanently disabled and requiring constant assistance with living, then 5 million is more than extreme. I see some lawyer simply drooling over the liability lottery he wants to gets his percentage of with THAT number. Accidents happen everywhere, at every place of business-most have insurance for that purpose. But throw some celebrities into the mix, why the lawyers, the plaintiffs AND the media (yes, that means YOU Perez) have one gigantic litigational PR orgasm!

    Re: Reality Check – "really sue the Fedex Forum but they do't have that deeps of pockets as BSB or NKOTB " I guarantee that FEDEX forum is the primary litigant. Further I'll guarantee you that the forum/capitol improvement board/city has way more insurance than the non boy bands. You people do realize don't you that, other than any deducible/self insured retention, the defendants will not pay a nickle out of pocket. I realize that reading PEEREX'S shit everyday has a negative affect on our mental capacity, but surely you understand these facts.

    William Wesley Styron get a life! OMG This is the biggest crap Ive heard what a loser blaming the boys for him being clumsy all he wants is there money! NO NKTOBSB are not to blame here its not there fault someone wasn't watching his step. How dare that guy try and get there money now just because they have the money because of there tours doesn't mean he has to rip them off he must have had this all planned. The boys didn't do anything wrong and the public knows it and the insiders will know it too they will see that NKOTBSB ARE INNIOCENT and that the boys didnt do anything wrong and that they didn't do that to him, he just wasn't looking and watching his step he is doing it on purpose for there money!. How cruel these guys come back after 20yrs and some money greedy guy tries to ruin everything for them, you will not get away with it there is a god above and he will not let a liar and theif get away with it. What is wrong with money greedy people out there you don't get anywhere with un honest money! THIS IS WRONG AND NOT TRUE NKOTBSB ARE NOT TO BLAME!!!!!!!!!!! Don't mess with BH family dude!!!!
