So sad - for both of them!
Chely Wright, who just publicly came out as a lesbian, opens up in her new book, Like Me, about struggling to come to terms with her sexuality while dating country singer Brad Paisley.
"I have not been ashamed of myself often, but I am ashamed of myself for choosing to be so cruel to another human being. Perhaps this book and my coming out will help him to understand."
Wright explains how although she did love her ex, she "was not in love with him," and would cry "during those moments of physical intimacy." Paisley was apparently so serious about his relationship with her that he had marriage in mind!
This, of course, only made Chely feel worse, and she writes "I was hoping I would fall out of favor with him. No such luck."
What an awful situation for both of them. Unfortunately, in these cases, both parties lose.
We hope Brad can learn to understand what Chely was going through was neither his nor her fault, and he can come to forgive her for the heartbreak!
