New Kid Jonathan Knight’s outing is old news
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Andy Cohen really did have the 4-1-1 last week when 80’s recording artist Tiffany appeared on “Watch What Happens: Live!”, and inadvertently outed New Kid on the Block, Jonathan Knight. When asked about whether they dated during her rise to fame, the star admitted they did, adding that Knight “became gay later…He was so much fun. We used to do facials together. He was so easy to talk to.”
Though Tiffany’s implication was news to some, rumors of Knight’s orientation were first convincingly reported in February 2009. The National Enquirer published a tell-all (complete with pictures) supplied by Knight’s ex-lover, Brazilian model Kyle Wilker.
As Knight himself posted through his twitter account (@JonathanRKnight), there were no hard feelings toward his longtime friend for her comments. Tweeted Knight, “@tiffanytunes Tiff, please don’t lose any sleep over it! I know you weren’t being mean and I found it to be funny!”
