    I have been a huge Backstreet Boys fan since the beginning of their career, and I’ve met the many times. They are amazingly sweet and down to earth guys. As for Rochelle I’ve met her a few times as well, she is stunningly beautiful, and absolutely the sweetest person. I have nothing but good things to say about her, and I am extremely happy for her and Alex(AJ). I wish them nothing but the best.

    I hope you are right Heather.

    I hope this girl is not just another fame-digger like the others he has had. He is such a nice guy and I hope he is not being used this time.

    I also hope he isn’t drinking again?!?!

    Rochelle is a personal friend of mine! She is down to earth and is very loving! It makes me sad when I see posts about her saying she is a gold digger or a bad person.. She is none of these! She loves AJ for who he is NOT what he does for a living.. They have a great relationship and truly love one another…
