Last Thursday, 80′s pop icon Tiffany told Bravo‘s Andy Cohen during an episode of Watch What Happens Live that she had once hooked up with Jonathan Knight of New Kids on the Block, saying, “He’s fabulous. But he became gay later.”
Asked jokingly if she had turned him gay, Tiffany said, “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,” she said. Here is the clip.
Many construed this as Tiffany having outed Knight, and on Friday night Tiffany took to Twitter to apologize, saying, “Really didn’t know that was the wrong thing to say…Never meant to hurt Jon.”
Knight tweeted back telling Tiffany, “@tiffanytunes Tiff, please don’t lose any sleep over it! I know you weren’t being mean and I found it to be funny!” which prompted the relieved singer to say:”@JonathanRKnight Thanks, That means a lot to me XO”
Knight also told fans criticizing Tiffany to stop. Said Knight, “I’d also appreciate it if the people talking trash about Tiffany and Deborah knock it off and stop being nasty!”
As to whether or not this means Knight is officially out remains uncertain. AfterElton is trying to get confirmation.
