Eighties singing sensation Tiffany is apologizing to former flame Jonathan Knight after seemingly outing him during a recent TV appearance.
While promoting her upcoming SyFy movie "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid" on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" last Friday, Tiffany, 39, admitted that she and Knight dated back in their heyday.
"He's fabulous. But he became gay later," she said before jokingly adding that she wasn't sure if she had a hand in "switching" his sexuality.
“I had issues with that! I was thinking maybe I did," she said. "But no, now looking back when we were dating, he was so much fun — we used to do facials together, he was so easy to talk to.”
Though Tiffany seemed casual about her whole "Watch What Happens Live" conversation, she changed her tune the next day when Knight, who has never publicly acknowledged his sexuality, tweeted about the incident.
"I'm so devastated," he wrote. "How can I not remember getting facials???????"
"Really didn't know that was the wrong thing to say," she tweeted. "Never meant to hurt Jon."
Shortly afterward, Knight, 42, put his former flame at ease, letting her know he was hanging tough.
"Tiff, please don't lose any sleep over it!" he responded. "I know you weren't being mean and I found it to be funny!"
