Pink News: Nick Jonas has insisted he’s not trying to “gay-bait” fans.

The former Disney star found fame with his family band the Jonas Brothers – but has enjoyed a renaissance both as an actor and a solo musician.

Throughout his solo career he has found many ways to voice his appreciation for his large gay fanbase; playing gay characters in ‘Kingdom’ and ‘Scream Queens’, performing at many gay venues and Pride events, appearing on the cover of Attitude magazine, and stripping off all the time.

However, ahead of the release of his second album, the singer has denied “cock-teasing” his gay fans, claiming that his simply returning the support he has been shown by the gay community.
