Music, Addiction Battles, Fatherhood, and Beyond
AJ McLean overcame obstacles during his career with the Backstreet Boys.
In 1992, AJ McLean became the first official member of BSB.
McLean battled personal demons and tried cocaine for the first time while on the set of BSB’s music video for 'The Call.'
His bandmates noticed a change in his behavior and intervened, leading to multiple rehab visits and overdoses.
McLean credited his then-wife, Rochelle McLean, for staying by his side through his darkest times.
AJ celebrated his first anniversary of being substance-free in an episode of his 'Pretty Messed Up' podcast.
