According to TMZ, Backstreet Boy AJ McLean's drug abuse problems had gotten so bad in recent months that staffers on the band's tour threatened to quit if he didn't get help.
In fact, AJ stayed so wasted on the Backstreet Boys cruise last month, several passengers filed complaints and even asked for a refund. A cruise staffer says AJ and his group acted like "drunken fools" for the entire five-day trip.
The cruise wasn't the end of it though, and AJ's bad behavior continued into rehearsals for their upcoming tour. McLean was acting so bad that several people there were also "ready to quit."
As we reported, AJ checked into rehab earlier this week.
