All thanks to Tiffany!
After she was on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live! and "outed" NKOTB's Jonathan Knight, Jon posted a statement on the band's official website assuring fans that he never hid his sexuality.
"To all my fans who have expressed concern: 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. Apparently the prerequisite to being a gay public figure is to appear on the cover of a magazine with the caption, 'I am gay'.
I love living my life being open and honest, but at this time I choose not to discuss my private life any further! My fellow band members don't discuss their private lives with their loved ones and I don't feel that just because I am gay, I should have to discuss mine!"
Are U surprised about Jonathan's announcement?
We're happy he made this announcement and hope his fans feel the same way!
