Jason Collins' Ex-Fiancee

I Had NO IDEA He Was Gay

Exclusive Details

0428_jason_collins_carolyn_moosThe woman who was once engaged to NBA star Jason Collins tells TMZ, she had NO CLUE he was gay at the time of their relationship ... in fact, she only found out last weekend ... and she was floored.

Carolyn Moos (who played a few seasons in the WNBA) dated Collins for seven years and was engaged to him until they broke up in 2009 ... after Collins pulled the plug on their wedding.

Carolyn tells TMZ, she never once suspected he was gay, so the news is shocking. She says Collins eventually revealed everything last weekend -- just days before his big announcement -- and said that his homosexuality was the real reason he ended things with her.

At the time of their breakup, Carolyn says Jason gave a bunch of BS reasons for calling it quits ... and she could never understand what went wrong, until now.

Carolyn -- who's back on the hunt for Mr. Right -- tells us, "It's very emotional for me as a woman to have invested 8 years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him. So this is all hard to understand."

She adds, "I care about [Jason] tremendously and only want the best for him. I want Jason to be happy for a lifetime and stay true to who he really is, inside and out."

What a jerk he is!! He wasted 8 years of her life lying to her.
What a jerk she is!! She was gold digging and got what she deserved. She was probably putting up with no, or little sex because she knew he had a big wallet.
Both deserve each other.

Are you tired of TMZ doing PR work for Hollywood degenerates & pornographers, and posting every pro-homosexual story they can dig up? On top of all that, Harvey mocks followers of Christianity but gets all bent out of shape when anyone says something distasteful about Jews and he uses TMZ to go after anyone who offends his religion. Talk about double standards! If all this bothers you, then quit coming to TMZ.

Very sad - she is another victim of the closet. And why would an athlete stay in the closet, living a duplicitous life? The hateful, ignorant comments here on TMZ show exactly why: being publicly gay means being the target of nastiness and hate. Thank you Jason Collins for leading the way. Hopefully in the future more gay people can live honestly and less women like Ms. Moos will be lied to.
