98 Degrees Band Reunion Thwarted


Exclusive: 98 Degrees Band Reunion Thwarted

RumorFix has learned exclusively that the band members of 98 Degrees were in serious talks to come back with a reunion tour, but the plan fell apart.

Jeff Timmons tells us when News Kids On The Block started their tour he, Nick and Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffre discussed getting back together.

"I think that now would have been a great opportunity for us to get back together," Jeff says of the boy band group from the late 90s famous for such hits as "Because of You," "The Hardest Thing" and "Invisible Man."

Jeff, who is 37 now and about to embark on a four week gig with Chippendales, says there's no bad blood between the band members, in fact he says, "We were like brothers ... we were very close as a group."

Jeff says the timing wasn't right for the group, Drew just signed on to return to the Price Is Right at the Bally's in Las Vegas April 19-30 and of course, Nick, is about to get married to Vanessa Minnillo.

But the singer still holds out hope, "Look if the opportunities not now, hopefully it will be later."
