Joey Fatone of *NSYNC stopped by MTV’s Total Request Live on Wednesday to clear up that wedding rumor, talk about his role in ‘Rent’, and what’s up with the other guys in the band. While he wasn’t sure who started the rumor, popdirt.com kinda did. As you may recall, someone submitted the item that they had been secretly wed, I contacted my source at New York Daily News, he contacted *NSYNC’s rep who didn’t confirm or deny the story, and there is how the rumor started. Read on for a transcript.
Oh, boy are you ready for a lot of noise? Joey fatone is here we’ll
ask h about a marriage thing. Bring him out here. Where is he? Is he comin’

This is kind of National Enquire-ish but I gotta ask you.
Rumors are circulating you married your 9-year girlfriends Kelly
Baldwin and have a 14-month old son right.
Daughter. I want a drum roll here if we can get one [Drum roll].
Are the rumors true?
I’m not married yet.
Girls can cheer.
We have a friendship ring on not yet.
Years. Not ready.
We’ve still been together and yes we have a daughter and everything
but obviously I’ve been so busy and everything but want to make sure it
is the right time and everything.
Where did this rumor start.
I don’t know from award shows if we come down and actually have
matching rings, friendship rings.
Good luck with that, hopefully.
Thank you. Yeah, it will happen soon.

A lot of musicals and theaters and Shakespeare thing and since

You did audition.
For Roger for the first time and they were like, oh, great. I
said the music was high but you did a good job next week can you come back
and try out for mark and I said sure. I auditioned if mark and the next
