Finally American Idol runner-up, Clay Aiken is coming out of the closet. In a People’s magazine issue due to hit new-stands today, Aiken tells the rest of the world what they already knew; he’s gay. Was there ever a doubt ? Come on, you don’t even have to be a fan of Aiken or American Idol to have figured this one out. Just look at how he dressed and acted, what guy acts like him ? Only the gay ones. Oh, and there was that infamous story about Aiken and a former Green Beret having a wild time in a hotel in North Carolina. Somewhere, Simon Cowell is not smiling. More from People:

Following the Aug. 8 birth of his son Parker, singer Clay Aiken is following through on a promise he made to himself as a new dad: to publicly acknowledge that he’s gay.

“It was the first decision I made as a father,” Aiken, 29, tells the upcoming issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. “I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn’t raised that way, and I’m not going to raise a child to do that.”

He adds that he hopes his fans “know that I’ve never intended to lie to anybody at all. … But if they leave, I don’t want them to leave hating me.”
