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?
