It was a major oops moment on national TV. Last week after pop singer Tiffany indicated she dated New Kids on the Block performer, Jonathan Knight, before he was gay, we all realized he hadn’t come out of the closet yet! That’s all right, says Jonathan, as he accepted her apology on Twitter.
It looked like an honest mistake as Tiffany accidently mentioned to Andy Cohen, the host of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, “He became gay later.” She added, “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 and he was fabulous.”
Since Jonathan hadn’t previously confirmed nor denied his sexuality, Tiffany promptly apologized to him on Twitter: “Really didn’t know that was the wrong thing to say. Never meant to hurt Jon.”
At that point, a humorous Jon responded with a tweet of his own. “I’m so devastated………….How can I not remember getting facials??????” He also added, “Tiff, please don’t lose any sleep over it! I know you weren’t being mean and I found it to be funny!”
