Former Tour Manager Claims *NSYNC Racism

*NSYNC by an empty fountain

The Mirror reports are being sued for $10 million by former tour manager Ibrahim Duarte of Entertainment Management Services Inc., who claims he was dismissed because he is black. “After four years of building them into one of the hottest bands in the world, they treated me less than human,” Duarte complained. “The popularity and money went to their heads and their true feelings about having a black front man became apparent. I endured their constant racial slurs, jokes and belittling comments to make it work. But they just threw me to the curb like yesterday’s trash.” Duarte filed suit against the group last year as well, claiming the group owed him $155,415 in salary and expenses.

    I know *NSYNC isn’t racist they are good people.

  2. mosdef says:

    *NSYNC is all about race. they try to put black people in their videos for their image and not because of the talent of the person. no wonder Johnny Wright doesn’t want to manage *NSYNC anymore.

  3. Hotstar says:

    I hope this isn’t true otherwise Justin will have a lot of explaining to do, but maybe he wasn’t the racist one. It could have just been the management and not the band.

  4. PopDiva says:

    This is dumb as hell. This guy is just out for money. I mean, Johnny Wright is black, and he’s been around from the beginning. This is the biggest bunch of bs I’ve seen in a while.

    Any member of *NSYNC never showed any problems with African/American people … which is the political correct way to say that. I guess most of you don’t even know what “political correct” means. Justin Timberlake toured Europe and his favorite African/American bodyguard and friend was around all the time. So, what’s the “big” deal?

    This is just like the Eminem bull crap, plus it is the mirror If I heard this on MTV then I would believe it but some of y’all are stupid as hell

    Like Justin would diss black people…….that’s just unheard of. I think he’s just bitter.

  8. JnChrisFan1 says:

    That’s total bull and he knows it, its all about money…that’s pretty sad. Nsync’s manager is black they are friends with many black people they get invited to like soul train, source awards, essence awards bet and all that they have worked with the Neptunes, Nelly, full force etc. they even do black music, well more of Justin. This lawsuit will be dismissed in a heartbeat cause its crap….come on now look at Justin he loves black people.

    No way they are not racist! the guy just wants to make them look bad while having some cash in his pocket.

    “Duarte claims his relationship with NSYNC deteriorated during its successful No Strings Attached tour between February 1999 and December 2000.” Weren’t there two tours in that time period, and wasn’t Wade the tour manager for the No Strings Attached tour?

    This is pathetic. The members of Nsync are not racist and even if they were, who cares? You’re supposed to enjoy a band for their music, not what they do when the mic is off. Nsync is a group full of guys with amazing voices and they can dance like crazy. I’m sure they did piss off a lot of black people who seem to have the attitude that white people can’t dance. I would have to say Nsync has proved them wrong like they have everybody else.
