Tom Daley Distraught After Very Revealing Selfies Leaked
Olympic diver Tom Daley has been in distress after intimate photographs of him nude in bed were leaked online this week.
The leak photos were taken back in 2016 when Daley and his current husband, Dustin Lance Black were on a seven-month break.
A close friend of Daley said, “The pictures are old. From 2016, way before Tom and Lance were married. They are from a time where they split for a few months, which they have both talked about previously, but they reunited.” Daley also stated at the time of the video release, “It was the distance. It’s not like I 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. We never physically met”.
Less than a year ago, the openly gay athlete confessed to having an online tryst with another man during a secret relationship break in 2016. It is thought that the images were taken in that period.
When Daley spoke of his online escapades, he made it very clear that it is all in the past now. “This will absolutely never happen again … Lance and I had time apart then came back together, realizing we’re meant for each other. We’re soulmates.”
He’s 23. Dustin’s 43.
