Days after coming out as bisexual to his fans via a You Tube video, rumors surfaced that Daley is dating screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.
The Sun, which reported the match, noted that the couple wasn't bothered by the 20-year age gap: Black is 39.
Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black using an image of an “I love Tom” cake has confirmed that he is dating Tom Daley during a night out in London.
"He makes me feel safe and happy, right now I couldn't be happier." And the feeling of love at first sight seemed to be mutual.
"I'd never felt the feeling of love, it happened so quickly.
In a five-minute You Tube video, the British diving bronze medallist revealed that he had been in a relationship with a man since Spring 2013.
Notably, he specifically chose not to use a label to describe his sexuality, but said it was “love at first sight”, when he met his boyfriend.
We were at a party and I hadn’t even spoken to him all night.
I didn’t know what to do or if he was gay at first.
"He's besotted with Dustin," a source told the British paper.
"They love each other and aren't concerned what anyone says about age difference." Black, who won an Oscar for his work on the film "Milk," is a gay rights activist and prolific writer. "Of course I still fancy girls, but right now, I'm dating a guy, and I couldn't be happier." On a mobile device?
