The former ‘N Syncer’s coming out may not have been a surprise, but it was big enough to trump Johnny Depp. Lance Bass confirmed months of speculation in People‘s July 2006 “I’m Gay” cover story — reportedly bumping the Pirates of the Caribbean actor out of the top spot. Bass discussed his then relationship with Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl and expressed peace and happiness with his declaration.
In exclusive interviews, friends like Christina Applegate and former bandmate Joey Fatone stated that they’d known for years, but Bass had kept the information private out of respect for the other members of ‘N Sync.
