Being a part of New Kids on the Block put “pressure” on Jonathan Knight to conceal his sexual orientation.

The singer claimed that his manager had told him not to “say anything” about being gay in Monday’s episode of Lance Bass’ podcast “Frosted Tips.”

He approached me and said, “If anyone finds out, your career is over. The career of The New Kids is over. Knight claimed, “My career is over.

The 54-year-old continued by outlining his feelings of anxiety at the time.

He remembered that the stress “built up and built up and built up.” It was insane,

With Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, Joey McIntyre, and Jordan Knight, Knight was the first member of the boy band to break up in 1994.

In 2009, whеn hе was publicly outеd by an еx-boyfriеnd, Jonathan said on thе podcast that hе was “living [his] lifе” and not “hiding” his sеxuality.
