George Michael was outed, but it was by a cop who had "an encounter" with the singer in a public bathroom.
You could say that the police issued a search warrant on his closet.
When photos of Matt Bomer making out with another man were released, he admitted to being gay.
At that point, it wasn't so much as coming out of the closet as it was admitting that he was standing ten feet away from the closet.
I doubt anyone read this and had a life changing moment.
