Jonathan Knight of New Kids on the Block says Perez Hilton “tried to out me many times and I hate that guy for doing that”

Perez Hilton has tried to change his online image from mean and nasty to kinder and gentler.

But for some, the old Perez is hard to forget – or forgive.

New Kids On The Block singer Jonathan Knight was actually outed by Tiffany in 2011 and tells Gay Times in a new interview: “I felt stupid having to make a public statement. Even when the band got back together in 2008, New Kids fans knew I was gay. Everyone did.”

But Hilton, who had outed Lance Bass in 2006, had been trying to do the same with Knight who says: “Perez tried to out me many times and I hate that guy for doing that. I was already gay and living a gay lifestyle but he wanted me to talk about it. Why? My brother and the rest of the guys don’t go on interviews saying ‘I’m straight” etc. so why do I need to just because I’m gay? People like him want me to talk about it to make themselves feel better. They think ‘I’m gay so I want to make sure everybody knows I’m not the only one out there.’ I hate that.”

3 Remarks

  1. I figure if your gay and your proud why not come out publicly? I appreciate Jonathans wanting a private life, but he IS a public figure. He did choose that public life! He took the money, he has enjoyed the fame! It is wrong of Perez to try and out people. Especially if they aren’t hurting the gay movement, like gay politicians who vote against gay issues. Ideally everyone should be able to come out in their own time, but there is a price for being a public figure, and a lot of the time the price is your personal privacy.

  2. People need to come out at their own speed. Forced outing is stupid. Perez Hilton is stupid and a dirtbag.

  3. “Outing” is a mean, Immature, hurtful act. People or organizations who engage in it need mental help.
