The Sun is reporting that Olympic diving star Tom Daley carried on a secret 18-month-long affair with a 6’6″ male model over in 2014 and 2015 in times while his fiancé, film director Dustin Lance Black, was gone.
The report is a bombshell if true, and sourced anonymously with allegations that Daley and the model quickly caught each other’s eye and began the torrid affair — as well as Daley having those “cyber romps” with a fan.
The source claims that the British male model — named in The Sun as Edward William, a 27-year-old — began chatting with Tom after a chance meeting in 2014, and:
“They live near each other in London and caught each other’s eye. Ed obviously knew who Tom was, and was single at the time, so sent him a message.”
At the start, the report alleges, things were pretty friendly between the pair, and Edward even came around Tom to hang out when Dustin was there, but later on, when Dustin was gone and Tom was in the mood, things got much naughtier.
The source revealed to The Sun:
“Ed said the messages Tom sent would say things like, ‘I’m home and horny, can you come round?’ Others would say, ‘Lance is away, are you going to be about?'”
And while this may be leaking out now across the world, this little liaison was apparently a well-kept open secret among the local gay community in London:
“Ed told them it was a purely physical relationship with not much emotion involved. He said Tom was very confident and forward with a huge sex drive. Ed met Dustin socially at the start of the friendship, but he thinks he did not know Tom was contacting him privately. It would always happen when Dustin was away and would be quite short-lived. They would hook up for half an hour or an hour and that would be it.”
And while the affair allegedly ended in 2015, the paper is reporting that Tom and Edward had been in contact within the last month, too — for whatever reasons…
