Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black
There are rumours that the mysterious boyfriend of recently out British diver Tom Daley is none other than Hollywood scriptwriter and LGBT activist Dustin Lance Black.
According to E! News, The Sun newspaper and other sources, it’s been claimed that the 19-year-old athlete has been seeing the 39-year-old handsome Oscar winning writer of the film Milk for some time.
In his coming-out-as-bisexual video on Monday, Daley said: “In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy.”
Sources claim that the guy in question is Black, who is 20 years Daley’s senior.
The two were seen together back in October at a coffee shop in Hollywood and apparently first met in London.
A friend told The Sun: “He’s besotted with Dustin. They love each other and aren’t concerned what anyone says about age difference.”
“Dustin is very proud of Tom for making such a powerful statement about his sexuality. They are officially in a long term relationship and are talking about having a future together.”
In 2009, Black was involved in an x-rated sex tape scandal of him with another man. The video had been shot years earlier and was apparently leaked to the media.
