Jonathan Knight opens up about his homosexuality

Few days ago, pop singer Tiffany talked a little bit too much about New Kids On The Block member Jonathan Knight, saying that the two of them dated for some time and expressing how cool it was to hang out with a gay guy.

Tiffany’s revelations caught Johnny’s fans a bit off guard, as they had no idea about that.

To address the matter, Knight opened up about his homosexuality via his website: “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’.”

He continued: “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!”

Congrats Johnny! We wish you all the best. Do you think that he had the responsibility to open up about his homosexuality to fans, as a member of a boy band?
