“In spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone, and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great,” Tom expressed. “That someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in my head that something like that could happen. But it wasn’t until spring this year that things just clicked. It felt right and I thought ‘Okay’ and my whole world changed there and then. Of course I still fancy girls but right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier.”

we all knew it all the long. and yet, these teen girl won’t accept it. not a shocker here.

millions of girls are crying their eyes out–LMFAO!!!!!

NEXT OUT: Justin Bieber

good for him ! I hope this will inspire other gay athletes to come out and maybe someday society won’t care anymore ;)

Not surprised. Good for him.

I’m not surprised he’s gay but I’m surprised he came out so soon.

he fancies girls. exactly. that makes him bi not gay.

I thought JJ was suppose to report news? Pretty sure we all knew he was gay.

I thought everybody knows he’s gay.

I’m so happy for him!! He’s an amazing guy, with a bright future.

Whole planet already knew it. I think he didn’t shock anyone…

I think he’s gay (not bi) cause my gaydar is spot on. He just can’t alienate his female fan base. But come on, any chick who doesn’t know this dude is gay is as deluded as those Claymates that were fans of Clay Aiken. Seriously, nothing wrong with it as long as you’re honest.

Gee, what a shock…it was always obvious with him.
