Before New Kids on the Block’s Jonathan Knight-Rodriguez was “horribly” exposed in 2009 by an ex-boyfriend in the National Enquirer, his manager warned him never to speak openly about his homosexuality.

“He pulled me aside and said, ‘If anyone finds out, your career is over. The career of the New Kids is over. My career is over. Sony is, like, going to lose money,” the 54-year-old Grammy nominee revealed on Monday’s episode of the Frosted Tips podcast with Lance Bass.

“It was so much pressure. Looking back, that’s a lot of pressure to put on someone who’s just trying to figure out the world on their own.

Jonathan added: “The stress just piled up and piled up and piled up. It was crazy.’

However, Knight-Rodriguez admitted to secretly ‘met’ a few of the guys his manager would ‘conveniently have around him’ during the New Kids’ 90s heyday.

On Aug. 25, the Boston-born boybander revealed to ET that he secretly married Barry’s Boston instructor, Harley Rodriguez, during the COVID-19 pandemic after dating for about 13 years.

The 43-year-old Frosted Tips host knows a thing or two about being closeted, having only met women until he was 22, when he was at his peak in the boyband * NSYNC.
