Lance Bass is ready to let his troubled past with Lou Pearlman go.
The 37-year-old singer stopped by the Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss podcast on Monday, where he talked about *NSYNC's rocky relationship with the band's former manager, who died in prison at age 62 earlier this month while serving a 25-year sentence for orchestrating one of the largest Ponzi schemes in American history.
"The last time I saw him was in court," Bass admitted. "He was just a shady guy and never really reached out for forgiveness."
Bass, who said that he is aware of the "rumors of molesting kids" surrounding Pearlman noted that while nothing explicit ever happened to him, he at times "felt something" may have been going on.
"Even at 16 years old, he would come up to us and grab our arms and go, 'Hey, have you boys been working out?'" Bass said. "I knew that was just to kinda feel my arms."
Bass also addressed the band's very conflicted feelings about Pearlman's death to MTV at the 2016 VMAs on Sunday, saying, "We didn't have the best relationship at all, but if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have met four of my best friends."
Of course, Bass did also address his "mixed feelings" about Caitlyn Jenner, whom the singer has in the past taken to task for her conflicting political views on transgender rights and conservative ideology.
"The visibility she's brought to the transgender community is incredible," Bass said. "However, she is a very strong Republican, and has some really messed up views that don't really make sense with her lifestyle."
"I think she's very uneducated in a lot of areas," he added.
