Nothing is sweeter than a good old boy band reunion! And when two beloved '90s guy groups combine forces and set out for an epic joint tour -- well, that's really a treat! The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block's co-headlining concert trek almost went off without a hitch. Unfortunately, both bands are now facing legal trouble over a stagehand's near-fatal fall while working on the tour.

According to TMZ, William Wesley Styron filed a lawsuit against the boy bands in Tennessee. The former NKOTBSB crew member was hired to set up the stage for the singers' concert at Memphis' Fedex Forum last June (2011). While on the job, Styron claims he accidentally stepped into a hole in the stage and fell 13 feet to the ground, fracturing his skull and sustaining a "traumatic brain injury" as a result. The suit also claims the stagehand suffered a "loss of consciousness, seizures, and convulsions" after the fall.
The man is reportedly suing the man bands for at least $5 million, insisting the accident could have been avoided had there been signs or cones marking off the hazardous hole.
