Blame the National Enquirer for the big bombshell of the century, the Vegas big cat act of Siegfried and Roy have finally announced they are gay.
According to The National Enquirer, the two are writing a tell-all book about their lives together, and in it they finally admit they were once lovers. When their affair ended, they remained partners and good friends.
The Enquirer reports the performers battled drug problems - Siegfried was addicted to Valium twenty years ago, and Roy says he was hooked on painkillers after his tiger mauling.
