Ian Thorpe's Lover "Friend" Revealed

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayAustraliasticZportzLGBT


In Australia, the media has done everything but out swimmer Ian Thorpe.

Long rumored to be gay, the potential apple of Ian's eye is Brazilian swimmer Daniel Mendes.

Thorpe and Medes have been living together for the past three years, and Ian was recently spotted frolicking vacationing with Daniel. The pair spent the holidays between each other's families, and not for the first time either.

Ian and Daniel (has a nice ring to it!) have also attended recent events together.

They were introduced to each other by Ian's former coach, and started out as "training partners" before becoming "friends."

Thorpe's manager, however, says they're "just mates" - which is Australian for "fucking."

    I'm "just mates" with most the posters here.

    Don't you think it's Ian's business, Perez? I really, really dislike it when people "out" others. People have their reasons for sharing or not sharing in their sexuality. Personally, I really don't believe that it's ANYONE'S business but their own.

    Re: harrybalsac – Have you met my beaver yet? It's nice. And very friendly. Some beavers are mean but mine is super sweet!

  23. 23

    perez, just because you are out, why do you think it is now your right to out everyone else? did you ever think about the pain or financial cost you might be inflicting on the person? or are you and you are just a damn sadistic bastard? and are you being funny about the word 'mate' or are you just stupid?

  24. 24

    Ya know, he does sorta look like a greased shlong! Ugggh.

  25. 25

    Re: harrybalsac – LOL @ anteater! They also resemble sea-cucumbers!

  26. 26

    Re: buck – Did you just come out to us Buck?

  27. 27

    I dont know why he hides it… all of Australia already knows. It'll be just like when the gayken or Anthony Callea finally came out… we already fucking know!!!!

  28. 28

    Re: justtfax – Perez isnt really bringing anything new to the table with this…. Deaf and Blind people know Ian Thorpe is gay. Also he was being funny about the term 'mate', der.

    Re: llamalou – Dearest why are you on a gossip blog if you think that everyones buisiness is their own?

  30. 30

    Perez Why do You Out People??

    It is a death Sentence in some Countries Still!!

    It is Private & Personal you DoucheBag!!

  31. 31

    Well, now it all makes sense. When he won gold, there was a super hot ESPN reporter that interviewed him. Jokingly she asked if it was true about what they say of men with big feet. He has huge feet. Anyway the pillow biter gets all pissy and rats out the reporter to her boss saying that he is " deeply offended ". Now we know why. Who wants a compliment from a tragically hot breeder when you are a sodomite! What a total douche. He could have just smacked the reporter with his purse and moved on.

    Re: harrybalsac – 13
    Don't deny it Harry. You're TOO homophobic to be 100% straight. I can tell you have a couple of kinks in you. Go to a bath house for a massage and look around. There's one for every one of us.

  33. 33

    good for him!

  34. 34

    Have you seen how big this guy is? I think he would be *cough* endowed plus he has got a little bit of a gay look and he loves his fashion. I dunno could be true. At his age living with a guy for three years and not a woman is a bit of an giveaway too.

  35. 35

    Duh he's gay but "mate" means friend. He's still gay though.

    thing is no1 in aussie rly cares because we could all sense it anyways and when he is rdy he will come out by himself

  37. 37

    perez i love you & all but seriously fuck off, obviously you know nothing about australia maybe you should come here for a visit and also nobody in australia really cares about ian thorpe.

  38. 38

    I saw these two in Sydney a few months back (in the winter) but didn't know who the guy was. They're not exactly secretive, walking through the Rocks at 10pm on a Saturday is not exactly keeping a low profile… I reckon good on him, who cares who he sleeps with, I reckon it's sad that in 2009 a man (or woman) still has to play coy about their orientation.

  39. 39

    it sure is….

  40. 40

    Perez perez perez… You have no clue about Australia. I find you often offend many Australians on this site. I used to love your site but lately your dignity/respect has gone down the drain! Giving people shit for whoring out their products - ahem - your book? Hypocrite! Calling a 16 year old slutty and constantly trying to bring her down? Poor Miley! I hate you!

  41. 41


  42. 42

    Good for them. Why not?

  43. 43

    Ah, Perez! you know us Aussies so well! I love the "just mates" ="Fucking"
    Old Thorpedo should actually be Danny-boy's "Buddy"…(read;Fuck-Buddy!)
    The mates thing tho…there's an old Aussie saying, "you know what mates do?…They Fuck you over!" so ,I guess your right in the end…as usual!
    Love you Bitch! PABxxx

  44. 44

    Cum out Cum out who ever you are

  45. 45

    god bless them…but this is hardly news

  46. Dargy says – reply to this


    We've always known in Australia……………..

  47. 47

    Re: *Buff* – Anthony Callea is gay? Bloody typical…oh well, I'm sure he will make some guy very happy. As for Thorpie, he could be bi ya know Perez…

  48. 48

    Thorpe himself pretty much admitted it when he said he is in love with someone who lives in another country and erm..so what he likes men.Big deal.

  49. 49

    Does it matter? As a gay person yourself do you really think all this is fair? If he is gay then it's up to him when or if he wants to tell the world. If he's not gay it's also up to him whether he wants to tell people that!!! Privacy man - have some respect.

  50. 50

    I'm an Aussie, and "just mates" means just that…….. otherwise there is a HUGE orgy going on "downunder"!

  51. 51

    you have no right harrassing ian. do you know that most of the world hate americans, you always talk with your foot in your mouth.you are just a sad old queen.

  52. 52

    Perez, or whatever your name is …. Who REALLY cares if Thorpie is gay? Does declaring the guy gay make you feel better about your own gay status? Do you REALLY need to try and out someone else about theirs? I would have thought a gay person would be more sensitive to someones' inability to declare themselves gay until THEY were ready to do so themselves?? Go and report on something worthwhile and stop being such a bitch. Get a life!!

  53. 53

    One more thing … you really are slow to hear the news! Speculation has been rife in Australia that thorpie is gay for oh, about 10 years. But here's the thing …. we Aussies don't give a shit who is gay and who is not because we actually have lives to keep our minds busy.

    Honestly, you are laughable. And I hope you read your readers' comments. Obviously there isn't much happening in the ole US of A this week or you would have had something REALLY newsworthy and interesting to write about.

    Yeah, I just noticed your copyright on the bottom of this page - save yourself some money and don't bother renewing it this year because no one in their right mind would WANT to copy shit from here and lower their own site or publication with it!!!! Sad, sad,sad little oops, fat, little man.

    You can't spend 16 hours a day looking at bulges in Speedos without eventually deciding to try one…at least that is what I hope Michael Phelps will tell me.

  55. 55

    We all know he's gay already. Why do you think he spends so much time over in the US ?? Isn't the US the gay capital of the world ?? I like the yanks, even if you guys do like rooting the same sex more than the opposite sex.
