New Kids on the Block member Jonathan Knight isn’t mad at fellow ’80s teen star Tiffany for outing him as gay recently — since he wasn’t in the closet, he insists.
“I have never been outed by anyone but myself. I did so almost 20 years ago,” Knight posted on his group’s official fan site.
“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 apologize for not doing so if this is what was expected.”
