Tom Daley's Boyfriend On Leaked Sex Pics
Dustin Lance Black insists he is glad he spoke out over images of himself with an ex...
Tom Daley's boyfriend has spoken about the leaked sex snaps showing him with a former lover.
Dustin Lance Black told Digital Spy that he is glad he took the decision to confront the matter with a public statement - refusing to be "shamed".
"It was about time. I always just sort of think it'll disappear, but it came up again.
"Cleve Jones, who's in Milk, is like a mentor to me, and he said, 'Girl, you need just to say it and let people know what's up', so I went ahead and did that. It was good to finally get it done."
Black issued a statement which read: "If you invade my privacy, this is what you will find.
"I have sex. It brings me joy, fosters intimacy and helps love grow... I am the victim of this 'scandal', not the perpetrator."
Describing his BF Tom as "the best", he insisted that the long-distance nature of their relationship had not been an issue.
"I still split my time between here and Los Angeles. I really only have to show my face in LA so they don't think that I've died."
The pair appeared on the red carpet together for the first time at a party in London this week.
