Unfortunately for NFL player Kerry Rhodes, he has been outed as gay by a very bitter ex. The messiness started late last week after gossip blog Media Take Out first published some photos of Kerry, 30, and a somewhat flamboyant gay man Russell “Hollywood” Simmons. The photos depicted Kerry playfully carrying Russell, as well as putting his arms around him.
The photos seemed romantic, but Kerry quickly issued a statement to TMZ denying he was a gay man.
Apparently this seemed to irritate Russell who then decided to leak more photos of the two earlier this week (photos like the one above or the one below which shows the two men with matching tattoos) which would definitely be hard to deny.
As if the photos weren’t enough, Russell then decided to completely out Kerry by giving an interview to Bossip. In the interview, Russell dropped a number of bombshells. Some of those highlights or should be say lowlights are below -
- He dated Kerry for 1.5 years.
- He lived with Kerry and was like a wife to him.
- Most of Kerry’s teamates and coaches knew about their relationship but never talked about it.
- Kerry was very generous to him always showering him with gifts & money.
- Kerry dumped him after he tried to get his own TV show.
- Kerry was the one who made the first move.
- He is upset, and is outing Kerry because he denied being gay.
Wow to the zers! Kerry has yet to respond to being outed and hasn’t updated his twitter page in days.
We must say it’s pretty awful to decide to out someone. However we can’t help but wonder why someone who wants to remain in the closet would date a messy famewhore?
With that said, here’s to hoping Kerry will turn this into something positive by officially coming out and making history as the first openly gay NFL player.
By the way, Kerry was cut by his team the Arizona Cardinals a while back (way before he was outed) so it will be interesting to see if this revelation will affect his chances at being picked up by another team.
