Let the Lance Backlash Begin

We thought it was a little weird that Lance was coming out right before his partner, Reichen Lehmkuhl, was beginning promotions for his book. Of course now that they are an official couple, everyone wants to tear them apart. Page Six is already reporting that the couple are on the rocks. Here's more:

DON'T expect Lance Bass and his lover Reichen Lehmkuhl to be together much longer. Friends of Bass say he's sick of Lehmkuhl's controlling ways. "Reichen forced Lance to come out just at the same time he has a book coming out ['Here's What We'll Say'] so he could ride the publicity wave," said our spy. "He is a big gay activist and very controlling. He wants Lance to give up his straight friends and do whatever he tells him to." Lehmkuhl has taken every opportunity to go on-air. He told "The Insider," "I'm happy it's shocking people . . . I couldn't be more proud of Lance. It's definitely a sense of relief. There are a lot more smiles. We are so happy about it." A rep for Bass skirted the issue and said: "Lance couldn't be happier with the overwhelming reaction he's getting from all over the world."

oh alrite, sorry for the mixup, i hadnt read the other posts. i think he came out because he wanted to get publicity, there are so many other gay/lesbian celebs who we KNOW are gay but wont come out! so, yeah it cud be for the publicity of his bf's book!

I know there were the rumors, I personally thought he had already come out until I read the post that said he was. That being said, a person wouldn't confirm the rumors if the only reason was publicity for his boyfriend's book. My original post was saying I thought this story was bs.

pink; perezhilton had already outed him as gay and he was caught at some gay bars as well. SO, he just made official what everyone else knew. I think his bf might have asked him to comeout for his own sake because there were rumors going around for a while!!

Hence the word "force". With quotation marks. I don't think he would come out if he knew his boyfriend was only pressuring him to come out for publicity.

pink, well, not "force." i think it's more putting loads of pressure on him.

Sounds a bit bs. If Lance felt Reichen was "forcing" him to come out for publicity for Reichen's book, why would he come out?

Cycy, the movie was called Lovewrecked! i wanna say the over waxed eyebrows gave it away, but that was a boy band staple, so i dunno. maybe i just have fantastic gaydar. my friend david says its because i'm "a friend of the family"
