Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Jonathan Knight, 39, from the New Kids On The Block is gay and very open about it.

Jordan's brother might soon be coming out of the closet officially, insiders tell us.

"Jonathan has a [non-famous] boyfriend and they're very happy," a source reveals. "They're not trying to hide it."

Congrats on finding happiness! And, if he does come out publicly, then even more kudos.

The New Kids fans will still love ya anyways!

    I live in the same town as them… they are a very nice couple!

  3. 3

    hes okay…I was more into Jordan…until he got fat

  4. 4

    oh and Joey can sit on it too….

  5. bouge says – reply to this


    There has to be at least one gay. That's the pre-requisite for starting a boyband. Duh!

  6. 6

    Who cares now…

  7. 7

    There's always the gay one in every boy band. I wonder if Elizabeth Hasselbeck can handle this, though.

  8. 8

    NKOTB rocks my socks off Lisa and I are going Oct 9 in Sacramento!

  9. 9

    i've always thought he was the homosexual out of the group…..anywho they alll look sooooo old in this pic

  10. 10

    i know im young and all but isnt he the one that dated Tiffany?

  11. 11

    This isn't shocking LOL

  12. 12

    I honestly find it more shocking when a guy from a boy band is straight…

  13. 13

    ♥ nkob

  15. 15

    Why am I not suprised!!! I've always thought he was very gay face!!!

  16. 16

    i'm sorry ………… i had no idea anyone ever thought he was straight anyways

  17. 17

    I was in ATL a couple weeks ago and had dinner with some of my sisters friend and this guy she knows was takling about how he banged him a while back

  18. 18

    never knew that. I always liked Jordan but now I like Donny, but of course his brother Mark is the hotter than them all!!!! ahhh

  19. TimC says – reply to this


    There is always at least one in every boy band. So who's next? Someone from Backdoor Boys?

  20. 20

    I'd blow all of them. At the same time.

  21. 21

    how comee all the hot guys are gay?

  22. 22

    That would be wonderful if he would "officially" come out. I was a huge NKOTB fan back in the day and Jonathan was my favorite. I guess I always have had a thing for gay men singers: REM's Michael Stipe, Morrissey, and gay friendly Tori Amos.

  23. 23

    what no andy comment yet…hmm he must be in the bathroom with this post

  24. 24

    Why is Danny Wood in the group? He adds nothing. He can't dance, can't sing, and is straight up monkey looking.

  25. 25


    he can STILL be my baby daddy….

  26. 26

    My chiropractor told me months ago that she used to try to get backstage at the concerts back in the day and that Jon was totally gay then and hanging out with lots of guys and out in the open and that was like 18 years ago.

  27. 27

    eww Andy your mouth is probably a sespool for all of the STDs and STIs

  28. 28

    HA! Man, I sure know how to pick them. (2 for 2!) I was way young, but I had a lil crush on him….later it was Lance Bass. Guess my crushes and I all turned out to be GAY. LMAO!

  29. 29

    I heart Donnie.

  32. 32

    He was always the quiet shy one…. so funny though cuz in their video for summer ..something… he's with a girl like the rest of the group…he probably felt so awkward…YES HE DID DATE Tiffany!

  33. 33

    Re: Leader of the sheep – Hope the bitch slams her forehead into a big, concrete wall. Eight-seven times, to be exact.

  34. 34

    Jon was the one that dated Tiffany, but that doesn't mean that he can't be gay now. I don't care if he's gay, doesn't change the way I feel about NKOTB. I will be fine as long as Joey doesn't come out of the closet…..I would be devastated!

    November 11 2008 Kansas City Mo. baby~!~!~!~!~!~!

  35. 35

    I wish it were Joey McIntire!!

  36. 36

    Why are my faves always gay?! (No offense), but Jonathan Knight has been my one true "celeb" love for over 18 years!!! Wahhhhh!! Don't tell me this!!! So much makes sense now. I swear I must have had my head in the sand all these years. I still love you Jonathan!!!

  37. gizzy says – reply to this


    old news.. knew since the 80's. funny that it is news again.

    Re: Frenchiee

  39. 39

    You are the typical gay man, Perez. As long as it's about gay, straight or 'on the fence' males…you are happy. But, bring up lesbians…and, your claws come out. My gay half-brother is the EXACT same way when my gay half-sister is mentioned or in the room.
    You are not doing the gay community any favors, by your bigotry.

  40. klkl says – reply to this


    really!?!? I am HONESTLY shocked. There is no sarcasm here. I was a crazed teen fan.

    KrazyKait - for real??

    And am I just beyond out of it?? Is REM's Michael Stipe def. gay?

  41. Sammy says – reply to this


    OMG WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE TO LIKE THE GAY ONES!!! :o ) He was always my favorite but, hey love me some pretty boys!!! Honestly I always thought Jordan was the one that likeD the Boys!!

  42. 42

    That makes sense, he's the one I loved. That's how I roll.

  43. 43

    He dated EJay Day from the first season of American Idol for a little bit, supposively.

  44. 44

    I heard Jordan was gay too. True or false? Does anyone know? He was always my fav!! When I was 9, I even had the Jordan Knight doll, but I turned him into a Ken doll. hahaha

  45. Vixn says – reply to this


    And we're supposed to be surprised?…..Now when will Jordan come out

  46. 46

    darn it, why are all the hot ones always Gay.
    he was my crush back in the day.
    i still love him either way.

  47. 47

    Why does he need to come out? You just did it for him. While I love your website, shit like that is up to the person to decide when/where.

  48. 48

    Re: theclass – [re=2774945]Re: Frenchiee

  49. 49

    so what. Donnie Wahlberg is HOT!!!!!

  50. 50

    [re=2775024]Re: ProductionPrincess

    I hope not…we dont want him….oh and Frenchi….

    because we like to eat a$z and suck d!(k

  51. 51

    wow it took me how many times to say that??? Perez's comment box is gettin extra sensitive….

  52. 52

    Bullshit! I don't believe it… And I won't until Jon comes out and says it!

  53. 53

    …it's 2008. Why is someone's sexual orientation anything to be commented on, or even 'newsworthy.' Comment on the music.

  54. ronny says – reply to this


    Re: abercorey

    LOL omg.

  55. 55

    Roxy Tarts, you said ""Bullshit! I don't believe it… And I won't until Jon comes out and says it!
    NEW KIDS OCT 3rd! WOOOT! """


    Thank you for being the perfect example. An example of what you ask? Well an example of the kind of woman that other men and women say "How could she marry him? Can't she tell he's gay?" So you go right ahead and kiss your New Kids Poster every night and don't believe that ANYBODY is gay unless they say so. Have fun getting divorced a WHOLE lotta times.

  56. 56

    Old news. Jordan has been out for a long time.

  57. 57

    It's really shitty to out someone who hasn't done so themselves. Whether he is open about it or not in his private life is different than announcing it without consultation to the rest of the world.

    But Joey was my fav until I met him and realized he was a pretentious prick who was bad mouthing the rest of his group. I'd still do Jordan though.

  58. 58

    It's about damn time…I always knew.

  59. 59

    doesn't matter to me…still love them…I think they have all had some hair line work though - no way they all still have all their hair. Jonathan's is the most obvious.

  60. 60

    Jordan and Jonathan are cousins, not siblings. Duh.

  61. 61

    that dude next to him has a busted face.

  62. 62

    This is not news….
    He's been dating men since he was in his teens, including a Boston area middle school teacher who brought him in one day for show and tell about 10 years ago.

  63. Midna says – reply to this


    I thought the one in the middle was the pansy but then again no straight man would be in the NKOTB

  64. 64

    Knight has at least been outed in the ATL for a while. A while back when Britney Spears was in town he took a friend of mine with him to the show on the condition that she would hook him up with a male friend of hers. They hooked up at the show and the next morning when she went by her friends house Knight was doing the walk of shame. Who cares if he is gay or straight. I think the more important thing is that he has overcome his panic disorder that took him out of the limelight in the first place. Much peace and happiness to him.

  65. 65

    Re: ValleyGirl30`
    idk, Aren't Jon and Jordan Greek/French decent? They're not exactly known as people who have hair troubles, especially in their late 30s.

  66. 66

    No shit!… what a big fuckin surprise! another boy band homo? now I'm going to wipe down my ass bitches!

  67. Sammy says – reply to this


    Re: misschris719 – They are brothers!!!

  68. 68

    i think they look better now lol

  69. 69

    Jordan acts kinda homo too…I hated him on surreal life…he may not be gay but he is definitely a bitch…kudos to jon if he comes out the closet…he has always had gay face

  70. 70

    Where have you been, in the closet? Obviously not, but The NKOTB had a documentary a few years back where Jonathan totally came out. This is VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY old news…

    It suprises/saddens me that you didn't already know this.

  71. 71

    Re: Jezzy2

    Like the joker….with no makeup

  72. 72

    And this is news?

  73. Voila says – reply to this


    I hope it's true, representation!

  74. DALE says – reply to this


    You mean there not ALL gay? now which jonas bros. loser is gay?.

  75. 75

    Damn! Let it to me to pick the gay. My boy band crushes were Lance Bass and Jon Knight. What the…??

  76. 76


    Fuck YEAH!

  77. 77

    Who cares if he is.
    I have been a NKOTB fan since i was 12…19 years… and would love them if they were all gay.
    I wish him the best and can't wait to see them in OCTOBER!!!!

  78. 78

    so what he is still a person his sexuality has nothing to do with it get a life bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NKOTB 4 LIfe…………… I love me some jordan knight

  79. 79

    Donnie Wahlberg is where it's at!

  80. pryme says – reply to this


    wow, i always thought jordan was the gay one.

  81. 81

    I don't think Jordan is gay. He's been married to the same girl for awhile now and had kids. Combine that with how he acted on the Surreal Life–definitely more like a straight male pig.

  82. 82

    What a surprise..NOT! Who else from this group will come out..JORDAN?

  83. 83

    Fucksakes, why do I always like the gay ones. So is he ever going to officially "come out"? I hope so. Nothing to be ashamed of.

  84. 84

    boy bands were created BY and FOR the gays (and 11 year old girls). Not suprising

  85. 85

    Well this is news. He was serious with Tiffany! I always thought it was Jordan who was the one. Good luck whoever, whatever!

  86. 86

    Re: sassymcsmartypants

    really? how did I miss that?

  87. 87

    Re: SophieSez – I want to hear more about why Joey is "a pretentious prick" and what he said to "badmouth the rest of the group?"

  88. 88

    I'm not surprised at all. If he's happy, then good for him =)

  89. 89

    I should have known back when I met them at the Palace in Detroit and he and Jordan wouldn't come out to talk to us…only Donnie, Danny and Joe were interested in talking to us girls!!

    ugh…all the time I wasted pining after him!

  90. D-Bag says – reply to this


    Jonathan rides the bologna pony?

  91. 91

    Jordan is NOT gay, just trust me on that one. Jon & Jordan ARE brothers. The only "documentary" ever done about them was E! True Hollywood Story, and Jon discussed his relationship with Tiffany at length - he did not say he was gay!
    Jonathan clearly has not decided to come out yet. What gives you the right?
    The New Kids fans (myself included) support these guys endlessly, but I still think this is crappy for Jon & the entire Knight family to deal with.

  92. 92

    Jonathan is still my favorite! =)

  93. 93

    woohooooooo i love the gays

  94. 94

    *Points finger and laughs at Perez* Honey, that news ain't nothing new. There was a story done in a magazine when they first started their "comeback". Nothing exclusive about it although you seem to be clinging to desperation like a life raft since there hasn't been any REAL gossip here for a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggg time.

  95. 95

    Maybe they can sing Paul McCartney and Michael Jacksons': Say Say Say… and make it into: Gay Gay Gay!

  96. 96

    Ehhhh, who cares if he like Kielbasa or not. I still love NKOTB and can't wait until 9/30 at Mohegan Sun to relive my childhood.

  97. 97

    Oh and screwing Tiffany would make me gay also, if I were a guy. GAG!

  98. 98

    This makes me a little sad. I wanted to grow up and marry him…oh well hope he's happy being the poked and not the poker.

  99. 99

    i'd tap it.

  100. 100

    Since when is a 39-year-old dude a "Kid"??? Maybe it's time for a new name for the band - perhaps "Antiques Road Show".
