NKOTB's Jonathan Knight To Appear With Boyfriend On 'The Amazing Race'

Jonathan Knight and Harley Rodriguez

Jonathan Knight of 80's boy band New Kids on the Block has never hidden his orientation, but only made a public announcement after being "outed" by former girlfriend and pop star Tiffany. Knight is continuing living openly by joining the cast of CBS' The Amazing Race next month with his boyfriend Harley Rodriguez. The singer made the announcement over Twitter:

The theme for the season is "all-dating couples", and in stark contrast to Knight and Rodriguez's seven-year relationship, five of the contestant pairs are appearing on the show as blind dates. The new season starts on February 25th.

Jonathan Knight: I Have Never Hidden The Fact That I Am Gay

Jonathan Knight took to the NKOTB blog today (you'll need to fork over $39.95 to access it yourself) to address his recent so-called "outing" by pop star Tiffany and officially announce to the public that he is gay.

Jon "I have never been outed by anyone but myself! I did so almost twenty years ago. I never know that I would have to do it all over again publicly just because I reunited with NKOTB! I have lived my life very openly and have never hidden the fact that I am gay! Apparently the pre requiste to being a gay public figure is to appear on the cover of a magazine with the caption "I am gay". I apologize for not doing so if this is what was expected! My belief is that you live your life by example, and not by a caption on a magazine! If there ever has been any confusion about my sexuality, then you are someone that doesn't even know me!"

"I love living my life being open and honest, but at this time I choose not to discuss my private life any further! My fellow band members don't discuss their private lives with their loved ones and I don't feel that just because I am gay, I should have to discuss mine!"

A screencap of his blog post (thanks, Kevin) is AFTER THE JUMP.

Back in 2009, an ex-boyfriend of Knight's told the National Enquirer that he had dated the boy band member.

Watch a short, recent interview with Knight, wherein he talks about his non-musical career in real estate, AFTER THE JUMP.

I was in love with him and I believe he was in love with me.'
