Tiffany Tweets Jonathan Knight’s Gay Secret

New Kids On The Block (NKOTB) singer Jonathan Knight has “officially” come out of the closet, and has publicly verified that he is, indeed, of the homosexual person (gay). The pop singer was puzzled that the news would receive attention from the media, as he had not taken measures to conceal his sexuality at any point in his life.

In a statement on the NKOTB website, Knight explains, “I have never been outed by anyone but myself! I did so almost twenty years ago. I never knew that I would have to do it all over again publicly just because I reunited with NKOTB! I have lived my life very openly and have never hidden the fact that I am gay!”

Many felt that pop singer Tiffany “outed” Knight when she appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” and mentioned that she had dated the star, also saying, he “became gay later…I didn’t do it.” Knight has never confirmed or denied his sexuality in public (until now).

And while Tiffany apologized for the “slip” via Twitter, it’s unlikely the formerly famous star wasn’t aware of precisely what she was doing. It seems like a shallow attempt on Tiffany’s behalf to clutch at straws of her former fame, but Jonathan Knight appears to be handling the media attention well, and addressed Tiffany on Twitter as well, writing, “Tiff, please don’t lose any sleep over it! I know you weren’t being mean and I found it to be funny!”

New Kids On The Block just recently started touring again with another boy band by the name of Backstreet Boys.
