Ian Thorpe Denies Gay Rumors. Again.

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayAustraliasticZportzLGBT


Can't a guy just enjoy a day on the beach with his long term guy rommate without being called g-a-y?

Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe was snapped in Brazil with said roommate recently and got tongues wagging about his sexual prefs again.

According to reports, the duo had jetted over in late December to celebrate Christmas with the Mendes family after first celebrating with Thorpe's family in Australia.

It was the second time Thorpe has accompanied roomie/BFF Mendes home to Brazil in the past year.


Well, the Thorpedo is not pleased with all the chatter and issued the following statement on Thursday:

"Over the last few days there have been a series of press articles published speculating about my friendship with Daniel Mendes. I am still friends with many of the people I competed and trained with during my swimming career. Daniel is one such good friend whom I have known for many years. I have only commented on this issue at this time because I draw a line when innuendo implicates people like my family and my friends. I find this kind of inaccurate speculation tiresome and I am annoyed by the hurt it has caused those closest to me… In the past, on several separate occasions, I have answered questions about my sexuality openly and honestly with the media."

What ever you say, Ian!

    I don't know him, but he looks a little krazi.LOL

  14. 14

    Just leave the guy alone. Who cares if he's gay or not? He needs to do whatever makes him happy. Let him live his life. Geez.

  15. 15

    Gay or not. Leave him alone. Not everyone needs to be outed. Plus, if it is not the case. why try to make everyone gay, Perez? you should understand more than most. It is nothing but cruel gossip. Shame on you. Draw the line somewhere. Shame.

  16. 16

    If he's not ready, or does not want to come out - HE DOESN'T HAVE TO!
    Let him live his life the way he wants to.

    Perez you should check ROBERTO BOLLE, great italian dancer, is in the light of italian media today because he "apparently" released an interview for a french magazine, coming out with his omosexuality. Then he protested he was misquoted.

    I have a question: What does it matter?

    I mean, seriously. What does it matter if he's gay. Why do we need to know? Why should we care?

  43. 43

  44. 44

    Rumors in Brazil say that are lovers and not friends. No big deal, however, why not just admit it and get it over with?

  45. 45

    Leave the him alone

  50. 50

    Ugh, shut the fuck up about people needing to come out! It's so fucking annoying. Maybe it's ok for people to be open with family and friends and not tell the media everything! You aren't his family or his friend and you have no need to know anything about his personal life.

  51. 51

    Re: lovernotahater – So true. Love the puppy in your avie!!!! :)

  52. 52

    Re: mama of 2
    Thanks mama. I bet he does smile when the BF does this before each swim meet.

  53. JoeyW says – reply to this


    Shut the fuck up Mario. You need to realize that just because you want certain people to be gay, DOESN'T MEAN THEY ARE! Leave Ian alone.

  54. 54

    Just because you can't imagine going anywhere with a male friend (if you had any) without sucking his dick or getting f*cked doesn't mean that two guys can't travel together and just be friends

  55. 55

    OK. so i am a swimmer and i have friends all over the world that swim and friends that swam in the Olympics and other meets with Ian and he is gay. its not a rummer in the swimming world it is just a well known fact.

  56. 56

    Ok here is where you annoy me. Who was pushing you out of your fairy closet? Maybe you were ok with coming out whenever you did but at the same time you probably did it at your own time and when you were ready. Not ever gay person in the public eye has to say they're gay. Leave it alone already damn!

  57. 57

    Maybe he isn't gay, now would be the time to open up if he felt feel the need to share his sexual preferences with the ENTIRE world. He did say he isn't gay, maybe it's another Keanu Reeves story where all the gay guys really want him to be gay. What does it matter anyway???

  58. 58


  59. 59

    You are the first one pointing at ANY guy accusing him of being a HOMO… you are such a hipocrite pig… if there weren't "media" like you he would be left alone… who cares who he is doing??? why is that even relevant??? should we like him better or not if we know who he is banging???
    You are the worst homophobe ever!!!!

  60. 60

    If he's "gay" based off the 2 vacations, think about it… Any of US would NEVER turn down 2 vacations to the Bahamas in one year with our best friend if we could afford that and take off school/work!!

  61. 61

    He is so GAY!
    The very fact that he felt the need to release the statement quoted is the gayest thing ever. Methinks he doth protest too much !

  62. 62

    What straight roommates spend holidays with each others' families? None that I've ever known.

  63. 63

    Gay! Only a fag would call a situation "tiresome".

  64. 64

    Re: Neverevenknewhim – Keanu Reeves? He's as gay as Tom Cruise. Grow up!

  65. 65

    Why the hell is it offensive and hurtful to suggest that somebody is gay?

  66. 66

    God Perez, why can't you ever let things rest. I've loved your blogs and your sites for months, but this is where I draw the line. For a gay man, who knows better than the most of us what it's to have once lived your life in the closet. You 'outing' people you think have a so called 'gay face' or of whom you just like to think they're gay. It's quite sad really. Maybe all the public attention has gotten to your head, and made you forget where you came from. The worlds a hard place, you shouldn't have to make it any harder for those who are already going through alot. Screaming about 'equal rights' and whatever? Hypocrite..you don't care about the gays at all. If you're serouisly convinced Thorpe's gay, fine..that's your deal. But what if he's not, imagine all the public humiliation you're putting him through. All of that just to get your kicks.

    It's exactly people like you who make me ashamed to be a fellow-gay man myself. I seriously hope you'll wake up some day, as an adult and realise the things you've done so far. Financials aside, I hope you'll be proud of yourself.

    so what if he's gay. He's getting fat and that's gross

  69. 69

    Ian Thorpe used to get teased at his High School "East Hills Boys" about his sexuality.

    A friend of mine says: I was once told by a "close" friend of his that the sneaky sound system drummer is his coke dealer, and to add that he was braging that he had been fucking his girlfriend all the time, then 1 day they asked her how she can handle his snoring and she replied, "how would i know, i have never heard him sleep"…

  70. 70

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…..duck!

  71. 71

    what the f do we care perez, stop being a social retard and back off people's sexuality stories; you're just jealous you can't have him.

  72. 72

    Well come to think of it… have never seen a story about him being with a girl.
    But eh so what if he's gay and doesn't want to admit it, each to their own

  73. 73

    haha yeah everyone here in australia kind of thinks he needs to step out of the closet.
    But the media just leaves him alone about it

    i mean if he says he's not gay that i think we should get over it.
    until i see a photo of him pashing another guy then im not going to think anything of it!

  74. 74

    What does that haircut say?

  75. 75

    Marito, Mr. Thorpe has the right to be straight. I hope you´ll agree…

  76. 76

    HE'S NOT GAY ! He's homosexual…

  77. 77

    This guy is a canoli-eater from way-back. What, we gotta spell it for you? E-N-D-O-R-S-E-M-E-N-T D-E-A-T-H.
