Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean Ties the Knot

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


A.J. McLean got married on Saturday to his longtime girlfriend, Rochelle Karidis.

The Backstreet Boy singer and his bride exchanged vows at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel.

In attendance were his bandmates Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, and Kevin Richardson. Also there to share the special occasion were Kathy Griffin and New Kids on the Block singer Joey McIntyre.

We’re told celeb photographer Tyler Shields officiated the wedding, which was held under a white hydrangea and rose-filled tent on the hotel’s property.

After the ceremony, the guests moved into one of the hotel’s ballrooms for dinner and dancing.

It was a great way for McLean to end 2011, which began with him checking into rehab.
