Do you consider this cheating? And if so, once a cheater, always a cheater?? Time will tell…
Recently, Tom Daley confessed to The Sun that he cheated on fianc├â┬⌐ Dustin Lance Black by having cyber sex with a guy he met online. Reportedly, there is a video circulating of the 22-year-old stripping down.
The diver says it happened when the couple were on a seven-month break due to their long-distance relationship.
The Olympian says it will “never happen again” and he blames his infidelity on temptations from the Internet and social media:
“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… But in the modern world this is what can happen ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ things are more accessible online, and distributed, and they spread like wildfire… People are just exploring and finding out what can be done and how easy it is to not even think about what you’re doing online.”
Not only has the British athlete confessed his online shenanigans to the screenwriter, this incident has only brought them closer.
“Me and Lance after working through that distance through the amount of time we’ve been together, sometimes it takes something like a little bit of time apart to realise how fond you are of each other… That’s why we’ve been enjoying planning our wedding so much in the last few weeks… We don’t have secrets in our relationship. We’re honest and open about everything. When we were back together I told him everything… Lance and I had a period of time apart, and then coming back together and realising we’re meant for each other… We’re soulmates ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and the only way that we were going to get back to that point was to be honest, open and share everything that happened in our time away from each other.”
The Milk writer has forgiven his fianc├â┬⌐, and explains why the two took a much-needed break:
“Tom and I talked about anything and everything that went on. That’s the secret to how we are so close and can survive tough times… I was out of the country for about seven months last year ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I’d been back and forth before that too, and in that time Tom and I took a decision to take time off… We didn’t tell a lot of people and it wasn’t the easiest time for us ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ so what Tom did in that time was his personal business… But as soon as my production was done we realised we can’t live without each other, and adjustments had to be made to make sure that we are never separated for any reason, including work, ever again.”
Tom and Dustin are doing everything they can to move on from this scandal, and they look forward to their upcoming nuptials.
