"You don't have time to look over contracts and make sense of things," Which is why....you hand the contract to an entertainment lawyer, or, a parent does that for you.

So after years of touring, day after day of rehearsals and all the work that goes into being in a band, they got a $10,000 dollar check!!! Pretty sure that’s when I’d go bananas and rush him like a 9 string weed eater with bad intentions. We all see the glamour and fame, not the hard work and dedication on their part. What a scumbag.

As a kid growing up in the 90s, I’ve always loved and supported the boy band industry. Shocking to see what happened behind the scenes, very disheartening to take advantage of these men (boys at the time even!!) Hopefully this helps artists in the future to read through each contract thoroughly. How sad

Aaron Carter looks like he's doing really well! He must be mounting a comeback. Maybe he could get a hologram of Lou Pearlman to manage him. It's also really cool he got a whole sleeve tattoo of Lou's name on his forearm. If Aaron Carter has any investment opportunities I'd feel very comfortable having him manage my money.

Based off of the stories people tell in this story, Lou was dishonest. The only person who was completely snowed by him, and naive was Aaron Carter. If Lou's own childhood friends knew he was dishonest and knew he was shady. It's time to see reality, but I don't think Aaron can separate himself from the reality Lou created and built for him. How sad! This is all so so sad! People shouldn't be able to get away with doing the things that he did for as long as he did. Yes, he finally got caught, but it didn't have to take as long as it did. Shady stuff is happening all over the world, and this is just proof of the contributors to that evil practice.
