    The band originally went on hiatus in 2006 when Kevin Richardson was let go, Richardson was then sued for $5 million due to unpaid royalties and was eventually re-hired in 2010 by Nick Carter while Justin Timberlake became a member of NSYNC.

    Since then the Backstreet Boys have settled into a more relaxed way of life with their families. But there’s no denying they’re still close and that they love to hang out and enjoy each other’s company. Unfortunately, we just don’t know if that means they’re back together, which is why we can’t answer your question definitively.

    In conclusion, we’ve seen that the band was a hugely successful pop group during the late 1990s and early 2000s, who were among the first true teen idols. They continued to enjoy success into the new millennium and have sold over 130 million albums worldwide, ranking them among the best-selling boy bands of all time.
