A TOP guy from the nineties swapped his pop career for a new gig as a stripper.
Jeff Timmons, 50, was a member of Los Angeles pop group 98 Degrees – who recently announced they would be regrouping for a new tour of America to mark their 25th anniversary.
He is one quarter of the “Invisible Man” hitmakers, and the band also includes brothers Nick, 49, and Drew Lachey, 47, as well as Justin Jeffre, 50.
After gaining chart fame, they took a break in 2003 – eight years later Jeff took up his stripping affair.
He started out with the Chippendales at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas and will now juggle the group’s comeback with his ongoing show Men Of The Strip.
Jeff serves as host of the event – billed as “the hottest male revue in Vegas” – and also shows off his rock-hard abs as a performer.
He said US Weekly about his pop bandmates’ reactions, admitting, “I’m always the guy who does the group’s edgier stuff, and they’re familiar with all of that.”
“They’re very supportive, but I don’t know if they really understand it!”
Of his new show, he added: “It’s still edgy, sexy and girls can let off steam, but it’s more about the production.”
“It’s a real show with lighting design and great music that we put together.
“We’re trying to make it a Broadway-style production – sound, lights and fantastic choreography!”
Last week we reported that 98 Degrees’ new tour dates will “celebrate 25 years together with the best fans in the world.”
They are also working on new material and re-recording their masters.
Meanwhile, a ’90s chart star recently traded in his fame to become a house flipper.
A Britpop star also returned to normal life after a breakdown – he used his experiences to train as a psychologist.
Meanwhile, we recently reported on how American rocker Dan Spitz swapped his guitarist role in metal band Anthrax for a career as a watchmaker.
A Nineties hitmaker also crossed over to pop stardom to train to be a psychiatrist – much to the surprise of fans.
