Ricky Martin --

'I Am a

Fortunate Homosexual'

3/29/2010 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


RickyRicky Martin
has revealed that he is a gay man.

Martin -- who has dodged questions of his sexuality for years -- just posted the following message on his official website: "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."

Martin says the birth of his twin sons led to his decision to come out -- and according to the singer, "To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where [sic] born with."

Ricky's kids were born in August 2008.

TMZ got punked. They should have checked out the source and story better. There is nothing on Ricky Martin's official website or his twitter page in reference to him coming out and being gay.

Can you say retraction or law suit TMZ...LOL

He's a latin man and traditionally, homos are a no-no. It's also been reported that he was sexually assaulted/molested by his manager, who was Mendez. Could be that he was "turned out".

It's about time Ricky. Will you now talk about your days with Menudo and your sex parties with Robi in your new book? Doesn't everyone think it's weird they are the two that stayed quiet about it when the news broke in '91? Ricky even stayed with the group afterward...

Boys will be boys

This is a shameful, sad disgrace. And to put your kids in it? That's why you're admitting to be immoral homosexual? Shameful and disgusting. Nothing to be proud of.
