The Backstreet Boys want former manager Lou Pearlman to quit playing games with their money. More than fifteen years after the band fired the notorious Orlando boy band svengali, has learned that they filed court documents asking a judge to force him to pay them back $3.4 million they say they're still owed -- and they're going to trial.

Howie DoroughNick CarterAJ McLeanKevin Richardson and Brian Littrell are due in court on March 24 over claims they made as part of Pearlman's ongoing bankruptcy case. They filed documents alleging that Pearlman still owes them $3,451,456.04, and that there is a provision in their original contract with Pearlman that stipulates he has to pay it. They also are asking for $87,728.58 in legal fees for having to fight him in court for the money for years.

The trustee of Pearlman's bankruptcy filed an objection to their claim on the grounds that "2700 proofs of claims have been filed against Pearlman" and "The Trustee has begun the process of conducting a comprehensive review and reconciliation of these claims," so the boys will have to wait.

What's more, the trustee claims, the band did not provide the court with "backup information to allow the Trustee to confirm valid claims for fees and costs."
