If I walked in the front door to see four guys sitting at my kitchen table, I’d be going for my pepper spray. But not former *NSYNC member Chris Kirkpatrick: A few weeks ago, when his girlfriend seemingly got sick and they rushed home, he opened the door to find former bandmates Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, and Joey Fatone sitting in his kitchen. It was the first time that all five of them had been in a room together in five years.
This adorable story — which will get even better, give us a minute — comes from multiple sources including Chris and Justin themselves. According to an account on a JC fansite,
Chris got home from dinner with his girlfriend to find all four of them sitting at his kitchen table, acting completely nonchalant just for kicks. He was like “WTF” and they acted like absolutely nothing was strange or surprising about their presence. They stayed up until 6am talking and then acted like they were leaving, but surprised him again in Miami at an event. Chris seemed beside himself to have all five of them together again. VERY cute.
Justin corroborated the dinner part when interviewed by E! News for his new movie In Time: “It was great. We all just kind of talked about how old we’ve gotten! It was fun; there were a lot of laughs and a lot of great memories. It was just good to catch up.”
And if that weren’t enough, they surprised him again the next day. Chris headed to Miami for what he thought was a charity fundraiser he was co-hosting, but instead it turned out to be a massive surprise 40th birthday party. The *NSYNC boys were there, as were other celebs like Jermaine Dupri. And it led to this photo:
This doesn’t mean we’ll be seeing a reunion the likes of NKOTBSB, but it’s still so cute and makes our day.
