Dustin Lance Black Moves into Tom Daley’s Apartment
Screenwriter/filmmaker Dustin Lance Black has now moved into Tom Daley’s apartment which overlooks the Olympic Park in east London after a year of dating.
Black says he’s “enjoying it there” and only needs to show his face in his former home of Los Angeles just so his friends don’t “think he’s died.”
Very much in love, Black describes Daley as “the best”. He adds, “I’m very proud. Everything Tom has said about being in love I feel and echo probably more.”
The ‘Milk’ writer also finally addressed the leaked sex pictures from his past as the couple made their red carpet debut last night for the Battersea Power Station Annual Party in London (pictured).
Black wrote an open letter last month after his former college rescinded a speech invitation over images released in 2009 of him having sex with an ex-boyfriend, saying that he “refused to be shamed”.
“If you invade my privacy, this is what you will find,” Black wrote. “I have sex. It brings me joy, fosters intimacy and helps love grow…I am the victim of this ‘scandal’, not the perpetrator.”
Daley, who affectionately calls his lover ‘Lance’, took time at the event to gush about their relationship.
“It’s been pretty crazy since the whole shebang happened, but it’s been fun and everyone’s been really supportive, so it’s all been good,” he said.
Tom’s 19. Dustin’s 39.
