*NSYNC member Joey Fatone has denied the rumours that the boyband will perform at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.
Justin Timberlake will be receiving the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the ceremony leading to speculation that the boyband will share the stage together to mark the occasion.
Joey Fatone was seen landing at a New York airport today – the same city the VMAs are being held – but told TMZ he was in town for his cousin’s surprise 40th birthday.
When asked if the *NSYNC will be performing at the ceremony, Joey asked, "Why the hell would I attend?”, but displayed a cheeky grin on his face whilst talking to reporters. Is he trying to keep the reunion a surprise?

But perhaps *NSYNC fans shouldn’t get their hopes up as Joey, 36, claimed that he wouldn’t be performing as he no longer has a close relationship with his former bandmate Justin Timberlake.
"As far as I know. I haven't gotten a phone call or anything,” explained Joey. “Just like his wedding, I didn't get the phone call or the invite."
*NSYNC bandmate Lance Bass also downplayed rumours of an reunion on his radio show earlier this week.
It looks like we will have to tune into the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 25 to find out if Joey and Lance are telling the truth.
