7 Celebrities Who Got Outed

Coming out as gay is one of the bravest things a celebrity can do.

This is usually something that a celebrity gets to do on his or her own time. These are celebrated moves that take a lot of courage and decision-making. But sometimes these people don’t get to out themselves because the paparazzi or a secret lover or some other entity has done it for them. It’s quite unfortunate but it happens all the time.

Take a look at these celebrities who got outed against their wills.

George Michael – He got outed when he got arrested for getting it on with a guy in a public bathroom.

Queen Latifah – When the pap caught her on the boat with her girlfriend, there was no turning back.

T.R. Knight – He was forced to come clean after a fight between him and a Grey’s Anatomy cast mate led to him being called gay slurs. He then decided to come out.
