Former N’Sync member Lance Bass came out to Britney Spears before he told any of his close friends. Lance told Britney the night she married her first husband Jason Alexander on a whim in Las Vegas. Page Six reports:

Her manager had already gotten rid of [her first husband] Jason [Alexander] – they’d flown him home. Britney was upset about what she had done. I felt bad for her. I knew she was about to go through a lot of crap. I felt the need to share something. So I sat her on my bed, and I’m like, Well, I’m gay!” Spears was “surprised. I was always the Southern gentleman.”

Britney was probably surprised because she didn’t even know what “gay” meant. So she went home and had one of her assistants look in that big thing with all the paper. A book, she believes it called. The assistant started reading the definition of “gay” which means happy, but before she could go any further, Britney said “Oh, it makes so much sense now!” She then had her assistant write Lance a letter: “Dear Lance, I too am gay. Gayer than ever! You see I’ve met a boy named Kevin and I can already see us falling in love and having the most wonderful life together. Will keep you posted. Your gay friend, Britney.”
