Yet another celebrity has come down with the swine flu! Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell has just been diagnosed with the H1N1 Virus, according to Us Weekly. His bandmates Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, and AJ McLean have all seen a doctor and are not showing any symptoms at this time.
The guys have all been prescribed Tamiflu, and have returned back from Tokyo to the U.S. The group was forced to cancel their scheduled appearance at the Pinktober Hard Rock in New York City tonight. But we're sure their fans understand! They also had to cancel their performance for the CBS Early Show tomorrow morning.
Litrell said in a statement, "We were really looking forward to spending time with our closest fans and friends in NYC and take part of Pinktober, an unbelievable and important program. I hope we can come back soon and do everything we can to help."
Backstreet's new album This Is Us goes on sale tomorrow. Bad timing! We wish Brian the best getting better!
