Lance Bass revealed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that he told Britney Spears that he was gay two years before going public.
“It was the night that she got married the first time in Vegas to Jason. [referring to her short lived first marriage to Jason Alexander back in January 2004.] So I went up to Vegas to kind of see the craziness that was happening. And she was a little upset once she realized what she had done because, you know, it was a funny thing,” Bass said of Spears’ first marriage, which was annulled just 55 hours later. “And then she started, like, really crying and, like, she was so upset. And so I took her to her room and we were sitting on her bed and she wouldn’t stop crying, so I was like, ‘I’m gay,’ and it made her stop crying… She chuckled.”
