One of Lance Bass's ex-boyfriends is opening up about the musician, and claims that he's a little bitter about the success that Justin Timberlake has had since *NSYNC had split up.
Cedric Martinez, who appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, spoke out in a podcast about his relationship with Lance, and hinted that Lance was very bitter and maybe jealous of Justin.
“[He] said they are not close,” Cedric told Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef about Lance's relationships with the members of *NSYNC.
He added that “the only person that kept coming up within the conversation was Justin Timberlake.”
“I don’t know what the situation is now, but I think at the time he felt a bit burned and disappointed that the friendship had kind of fizzled out or something, you know? So I think that Lance felt, you know, Justin had a big head and he thought it was a star. And so there was a hint of bitterness. But hey, I mean, I would have been maybe feeling the same...I think there was a bit of animosity there.”
Cedric continued, saying that "Justin kept coming up more than other members" and that he didn't even know the names of the other members of the group.
“Just Lance and Justin!” he said. “So the other guys, I have no idea what they are. But something must have happened. He never went into the details. But he did not like the fact that Justin was acting and seemed to be doing everything and you know, and Lance was trying to restart a career."
