Tiffany Outs Jonathan Knight of NKOTB

January 23, 2011

Jonathan Knight


Pop star icon Tiffany accidentally outed Jonathan Knight from NKOTB as gay last Thursday on television.  Though it’s been rumored for quite some time that Mr. Knight is a homosexual, he’s never publically come out of the closet.  Now, with the latest revelation, it appears that closet is getting smaller and smaller.  It’s too bad.  In a society which often treats LGBT as second class citizens, denies basic human protections for LGBT and degrades those different than themselves it’s unfortunate that Jonathan doesn’t seem to get the respect of chosing who he wants to share his sexuality with.  I did think it was funny though when Carrie Fischer outed John Travolta, but  that’s because he’s a homophobic homosexual….

Late-’80s pop icon Tiffany was appearing on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Thursday night when she let slip that New Kids on the Block’s Jonathan Knight is gay.

The transcript is below.

Andy Cohen: Tiffany, New Kids on The Block opened for you. Did you have anything with any of the NKOTB …

Tiffany: I did, with Jonathan Knight.

Andy: Oh, Jordan Knight.

Tiffany: No, the quiet one. The shy one. He’s fabulous. But he became gay later.

Andy: Did you turn him?

Tiffany: No [laughs]. I had issues with that, I was thinking maybe I did. But no, now looking back when we were dating, he was so much fun — we used to do facials together, he was so easy to talk to.
