Lance Bass
has opened up about suffering sexual harassment during his *NSYNC years.

The singer made the revelation on The Meredith Vieira Show, while discussing Ashley Judd's recent allegation that she was once sexually harassed by a Hollywood executive.

"When I was 16 or 17, when we started [in *NSYNC], there was someone who we worked with who was inappropriately touching us," Bass recalled.

"I was aware - even then at 16 - that this guy was a paedophile and he was touching me oddly. I didn't feel victimised at the time because I was very aware of it.

"With the guys we would talk about it. We would kind of joke about it - but it's not a joking thing! As a kid, it was odd.

"I'm glad we were aware of it, and didn't feel victimised at the time."

The other members of *NSYNC have not issued any comment on Bass's statement as of yet.
