American musician and member of "New Kids on the Block," a manufactured group of young superstars. They have been on the road since 1979 with a hectic schedule of performances and living in hotel rooms.
Soft-spoken, Jonathan fits in the group with his brother Jordan, McIntyre, Wood and Wahlberg. With their success, the family bought a lush estate mansion outside the city with a menagerie of pets, dogs, horses, llamas and peacocks. The mothers of the New Kids run their fan club that rapidly grew to more than 200,000 members.
After their "Face the Music" tour ended in 1994, Jonathan left the group, feeling that they had gone as far as they could. He and his brother Jordan retired to a 20-acre estate in rural Essex, MA. Within two years, Jordan moved on to his own place and Jonathan moved on to a new profession, that of real-estate developer, buying, renovating and selling houses and condos. By 2000, he began to branch out, collaborating with architects to design houses.
He remembers his days of playing to as many as 30,000 screaming fans as being fun, in spite of a hectic schedule and his anxiety attacks.
In 2009, the National Enquirer published an article from a man claiming to be Knight's ex-boyfriend, and outing him as gay. In 2011, Knight came out publicly as gay. He has been in a relationship with Harley Rodriguez since 2008. The pair participated in the 26th season of the reality competition series The Amazing Race, which aired on CBS in early 2015. They placed 9th.
