The Time Joey Fatone Walked In & Caught Lance Bass With Another Guy
Jonathan Higbee | March 7, 2014
Sounds like socks weren't used on door knobs back in NSYNC's touring days. Lance Bass has revealed to Access Hollywood that he inadvertently came out to band mate Joey Fatone before famously breaking down the closet door on the cover of People.
“Joey walked in on me with the guy I was dating just kind of sitting on my lap," Lance said. "Straight guys don’t do that."
“I’m like, ‘Surprise!’ Joey was just like, ‘Dude, I don’t care. I have so many gay friends—I don’t care," he added. “It was a few months after that before I told the [rest of] the guys… I don’ t think anyone was surprised."
As far as his experience coming out to his family goes, the Man of Many Hats called it "incredible." “I came out to my family around 21, 22. It was hard, but once I ripped the Band-Aid off, it was incredible. Everyone was so supportive—my family loves me just [the way] I am.”
