Awww! Poor guy!
Lance Bass recently opened up about coming out to his *NSYNC band members and it seems like he was required to come out to Joey Fatone!
Why? Did he force him? Suspect him?! Blackmail him?!?!?
Nope! It's waaaay more awkward than that!
Joey actually walked in on Lance with another guy!
"Joey walked in on me with the guy I was dating just kind of sitting on my lap. Straight guys don't do that. I'm like, 'Surprise!' Joey was just like, 'Dude, I don't care. I have so many gay friends — I don't care.'"
WHOA! We're glad Joey was so cool about it!
That must have made Lance much more comfortable about the whole thing!
Plus it probably helped him with coming out to Justin Timberlake, J.C. Chasez, & Chris Kirkpatrick!!
"It was a few months after that before I told the [other] guys. I don't think anyone was surprised."
We're glad he came out to them all though!
But we bet Joey felt pretty special keeping that secret!
Such a great friend!
P.S. CLICK HERE to see Justin return to his *NSYNC days when he performed Gone at his Florida concert!
