Britney Spears Knew Lance Bass Was Gay Before the World Did

Lance Bass may have publicly announced he was gay in 2006, but pal Britney Spears actually knew for quite some time.

Bass spilled the beans to Spears after her 2004 wedding.

Remember that time Spears got married in Las Vegas to childhood friend Jason Alexander?

Yeah, the marriage lasted 55 hours and was annulled ... that's the one.

Good times.

Bass came out to Spears shortly after the whole wedding fell apart and the media had a grand old time ripping on the pop princess.

Spears reportedly was depressed over the media scrutiny and Bass did what any BFF would do -- told her his deepest darkest secret to make her feel better.

Bass explained on the Wendy Williams Show, "The way I came out to Britney was, it was her first marriage, when she got married in Vegas, that little 24-hour one. So I was up there for that, and she was kind of upset because she knew what was gonna happen the next day, and all the press, and the only thing I could think of to kind of calm her down and make her stop crying was, 'I'm gay.'"

How did it go over? Bass shared, "She stopped crying and it was great."

It looks like Spears did a good job of keeping Bass' sexuality a secret -- the world didn't find out for another two years.
