During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Lance Bass revealed that he came out to Britney Spears at her wedding in 2004, two years before he was out publicly.
“It was the night that she got married the first time in Vegas to Jason” explained Bass. The singer was upset after realizing what she had done, and Lance tried to comfort her. “She started, like, really crying and, like, she was so upset.”
Britney’s marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander would be annulled after just 55 hours.
“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'” continued Bass. “It made her stop crying, so yeah.”
Bass came out publicly two years later in a cover story with People Magazine.
Earlier this year, the former boy band star reunited with *NSYNC at Coachella for a performance with Ariana Grande. “Who knows. One day maybe it will happen” Bass added about more potential material from the group.
