03 – From Perez Hilton: It saddens us to report this, but….
PerezHilton.com can exclusively reveal that Lance Bass and his boyfriend, Reichen, have decided to end their relationship.
The split – which happened very recently – was a mutual decision, pals of the couple tell us.
“They had been fighting a lot lately,” says one source. “They tried a lot of things to make it work – even opening up the relationship – but they would just fight all the time towards the end. It wasn’t working.”
How sad! Goodbye to one of the few high-profile gay couples we had!
04 – From TMZ: TMZ has confirmed that gAy-listers Lance Bass and Reichen Lehmkuhl are no longer an item. Lance’s rep, Cindy Owen, said, “They have broken up.”
While together less than a year, the relationship was a catalyst in forcing the former *NSYNC singer to exit the closet.
Over and out.
People.com also confirms the split.
04 – From Perez Hilton: Now, Lance’s publicist, Cindy Owen, issued a statement confirming the split. “They have broken up,” she said.
News of the announcement came as a surprise to Reichen, who was unaware that Bass issued a statement.
Sources reveal to PerezHilton.com that up until this morning, Reichen has been denying the split to media and mutual friends.
Liar liar, pants on fire!!!
And, though the split was mutual, Lance instigated the conversation.
04 – From AccessHollywood.com: Lance Bass and Reichen Lehmkuhl, the golden couple of the gay male world, are officially split, Access Hollywood has learned.
It certainly appeared that Lance was a single man last night at club Area in West Hollywood, where he was spotted being very intimate with someone other than his boyfriend on the club’s gay night.
According to a reputable source, he was seen in a booth all night, being very touchy-feely with a young man allegedly named Jamie, who looks very much like Reichen – tall with dirty blonde hair
No word yet on Reichen’s whereabouts over the weekend.
Access spoke with Lance at VH1′s “Big in ‘06″ Awards over the weekend about future career plans.
“I’m kind of toying with doing a record,” he told Access. “Maybe doing a Christmas album next year. Like a throw back to Sinatra. Some new stuff. Mainly covers.”
He also mentioned some other upcoming productions, including, “a couple of shows — I’m doing a Vegas show, I have a sitcom with the CW and so I’m doing ‘Mr. Producer’ next year,” he continued.
“Vegas Live – it’s a variety show like ‘American Bandstand’ meets SNL.”
05 – From Page Six: NOT only did Lance Bass finally kick Reichen Lehmkuhl to the curb – we hear he’s already got another man. At the opening of Sunset Beach in L.A. the other day, Bass showed up with “a very attractive man as his date,” said our spy. Bass refused to pose for pictures with the stranger, and snuck in and out of the side entrance. Page Six first reported the troubles Bass and Lehmkuhl were having due to the former Marine’s insistence on Bass dropping his straight friends and not having a full-time job. Bass’ friends also think Lehmkuhl maneuvered the former *NSYNC-er into coming out at the same time as his book debut, “Here’s What We’ll Say.”
05 – From Lance’s MySpace: Rumor Mill
OK, so that people stop jumping to conclusions and freakin out let me squash a few things.
#1 Yes I am thinking of doing a Xmas album next year. There really isnt any time to focus on a whole slol record, but think I can put together a nice Xmas one! Would love to do a record in the style of Sinatra, Crosby, and Martin. Fun!
#2 Yes Reichen and I have gone through a few rough days.. but instead of dealing with it by ourselves we get the honor of everyone joining in on our pain! lol No worries… I have no doubt things will work out. We are very mature and deal with things the right way. Thank you for all your concerns! It does mean a lot when so many of you are begging us to stay together! Just please don’t believe most the hype you read… like us opening up the relationship?! What the hell does that mean anyway? I mean I think I know what that means… and if it is.. then the answer is def NO!
again thanks for all the concerns… peace and hair grease! LB
