Lance Bass isn’t involved in anything remotely resembling a love triangle with Tyson Beckford and husband Michael Turchin, despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this untrue story.

A headline in the current edition of Life & Style ridiculously declares, “Lance’s Husband Is Jealous Of Tyson!” In the punny accompanying story, the tabloid contends, “It’s tearing up Michael Turchin’s heart when his husband of two years, Lance Bass, spends time with a certain co-star.” The gossip magazine reports Beckford is a “judge on ’90s House,’ a new VH1 reality show hosted by former ‘NSYC-er” Bass, and quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “Lance and Tyson have gotten close.”

The gossip magazine notes “Lance and Michael are happily married” while “Tyson is straight,” but still alleges “Lance’s chummy relationship with Tyson has Michael jealous.” The outlet’s supposed snitch even claims Turchin “asked Lance to put an end to it,” but rather than doing so, he and Beckford now only hang out “when Michael isn’t there.” The alleged tipster adds to the publication that “Lance is always hugging people,” including Beckford.

Typically, a hug is considered a friendly greeting. It’s odd that the tabloid is using that to suggest something inappropriate is taking place, but only with Beckford, as opposed to all the other unnamed “people” Bass is supposedly “always hugging.” It’s also strange that the magazine built this story around Bass and Beckford’s involvement with “90s House,” considering there has been zero news about the show’s production aside from the April announcement three months ago that VH1 ordered it.

Additionally, the two men have known each other for years, so it makes little sense for Turchin to suddenly be “jealous” of Beckford or suddenly object to his husband being a hug-giver. It’s for all these reasons Gossip Cop was skeptical of this story. And our suspicions were confirmed upon speaking with a rep for Bass, who exclusively told us the piece is entirely “false.” Bass and Turchin have no issues over Beckford, or anyone else for that matter.
