Newly out Olympic diver Tom Daley didn’t say who the man is who was reason to come out in a homemade YouTube video on Monday. But it didn’t take long for folks to find out.
Daley is dating Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, reports E! News and sources confirm to The Advocate.
Black, 39, and Daley, 19, were spotted together in Hollywood in October.
“Come spring of this year my life changed — massively — when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great, and well, that someone is a guy,” Daley said in the video Monday. “And it did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something that just clicked, it felt right, and I was like, OK. And like I said my whole world just changed right there and then. Of course I still fancy girls, but right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier. I just feel safe. And it just really does feel right.”
Their relationship will be chronicled in the Wednesday edition of The Sun newspaper (U.K.), according to reporter Dan Wooton.
