New Kids on the Block singer Jonathan Knight has announced – and according to him, it's not news – that he's gay.

Last week the pop singer laughed off being outed by nineties pop star Tiffany.

Talking on bi – not gay – cabler Bravo's late night chat show Watch What Happens Live, Tiffany told her host Andy Cohen that Knight was gay.

Afterward, she apologized for the gaffe, saying on Twitter, “Really didn't know that was the wrong thing to say. Never meant to hurt Jon.”
