Lance Bass does not appear to bear any grudge towards fellow *NSYNC alum Justin Timberlake for not being invited to his wedding to Jessica Biel in Italy. The other three former boy band members, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez, also did not attend the 2012 nuptials. Lance Bass was asked about not being invited to the wedding during an appearance on Khloe Kardashian's FYI Network talk show Kocktails With Khloe this week.
"That, everyone always asks that," Bass said. "And here's the real answer is 'no', we were not. And a lot of people are like, 'That is so rude,' but I, I, if you think of it this way, you'll understand why we didn't go."
"When we get together, the five of us, it is, it's a spectacle. I mean, we rarely are all five together. You know, four of us will be together, three of us, but all five, people go nuts and it's all about *NSYNC and it's just taking picture after picture and, you know, he wanted that wedding to be about Jessica, you know, and he didn't want it to be an *NSYNC reunion," Bass continued.
Fellow guest Holly Robinson Peete, 51, asked Bass if Timberlake, 35, called him to tell him this was the reason he was not invited to the wedding. "Oh yeah, definitely," he replied. "You know, we had the engagement party and all that, so that was, you know, lots of fun. But yeah, I mean, I totally understand and I respect that and I think it's kind of romantic to make it all about her, for that day. It was very thoughtful."
Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez all attended Bass's own wedding to Michael Turchin in 2014. Chasez even performed during the pair's first dance as a married couple. Timberlake was absent.
Bass had said in the past the singer was invited to his wedding but did not attend because he was performing a concert that day.
Timberlake did attend Kirkpatrick's wedding to Karly Skladany in 2013, which took place days before he began his 20/20 Experience world tour. He and his other former *NSYNC bandmates were members of the wedding party.
Khloe asked Bass if he thought there was ever going to be another band reunion. "I mean, who knows?" he said. "The great thing about us is we're all still family. We love each other, we hate each other, every emotion comes out when, you know, when you're family. So when things make sense, you know, we'll do it."
