Sorry, 98 Degrees fans, but the once popular '90s boy band is not reuniting for a tour this summer.
After Rumor Fix broke the news of the reunion two weeks ago, blogs and news orgs. -- including this one -- picked up the chatter and ran with it. The band’s Wikipedia page even states "98 Degrees is planning a reunion show for the second half of 2012."
However, the exclusive news of a reunion tour is completely untrue.
Former 98 Degrees frontman Nick Lachey shot down the reports as rumors, stating that the only tour he will be going on this summer is at Babies "R" Us, Gossip Cop reports. Lachey and his wife Vanessa Minnillo are expecting a baby this fall.
Though other boy bands from the era have hopped on the reunion tour bandwagon, 98 Degrees, Lachey assures, will not -- well, at least not this summer.
Looks like Lachey and the boys will not always be there right by your side.

S Club 7 -- a British pop group created by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller and consisting of members Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens -- rose to international fame in 2000, before splitting in 2003. In March 2012, it was announced that all original seven members would reunite for seven UK shows, with possibility of a two-album record deal.
Unlike almost all of the other 90s boy bands, the Backstreet Boys never really broke up -- although original member Kevin Richardson did quit in 2006. In 2011, the Backstreet Boys toured with New Kids on the Block, and BSB is planning to release a new album in 2012.
After reuniting in 2008, New Kids On The Block embarked on a highly successful reunion tour. Then in 2011, they joined The Backstreet Boys for the NKOTBSB tour and released a compilation album of the same name, featuring their hits "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" and "Hangin' Tough," and a new recording, "Don't Turn Out the Lights."
Take That formed in 1990 and after a few No. 1 UK singles, the British boy band split in 1996. However, the group reunited in 2005 and have been touring and releasing new music ever since. The band's next album is expected to hit shelves in late 2012, and Take That is also in talks to open the London 2012 Olympic Games.
After reuniting in 2007 for a Spice Girls reunion tour, the British girl power group may reunite again for Queen Elizabeth's upcoming Diamond Jubilee in June. Scary, Baby, Sporty, Ginger and Posh may also don their platform boots for the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.
