Tom Daley has admitted to engaging in cybersex with a fan.
The Olympic diver told The Sun that he sent a 6-minute explicit video and several intimate pictures of himself to a 23-year-old male fan, just weeks after he got engaged to fiance Dustin Lance Black.
However, he assured that it wouldn’t affect their upcoming wedding plans as the pair was on a break at the time, and he has also come clean about it to Black.
He explained that he was filming his ABC mini-series “When We Rise” at that time and was away from his partner for 7 months, which resulted in the pair calling for a break.
“It was the distance. It’s not like I ever actually met up with anyone. I’m 22 years old, and if you talk to someone through social media it is what it is. It was nothing more than that. That’s the funny thing about it. We never physically met, never. This will absolutely never happen again now that we’re getting married. The date is set, and we’re raring and ready to go for that wedding now.”
“I didn’t really want to know and I was very busy so I didn’t really want to pursue anyone – and we never felt out of love with each other.”
Daley first announced that he was bisexual in 2013 via a YouTube video and made public his relationship with Black. However, he revealed that he was actually gay in mid-2014. The pair got engaged in October 2015 and will be tying the knot in the next 12 months, though no date has been set.
