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."

Im sick and tired of gays trying to force society into accepting something that the rest of us dont believe in! Sorry but if your going to hold hands or kiss your gay partner in public....then you ARE harming the rest of us, because I should not have to explain to my small children why people are acting perverse. Being gay is a form of mental illness and perversity...its the forbidden and people who do it are doing it to rebel. Gay people are destroying society for the rest of us! This basketball player was a dirty rotten piece of ****, to have taken 8 years from this woman, her prime child bearing years and to have lead her on, is dispicsble, he should not be getting ny kind of praise, its not about him, he deceived this woman into thinking they had a future, he likely was subjecting her to aids as well, Im guessing he was sleeping with men while with her. Gross.

Said "Looks and sounds like a transgender" are you implying that being a TRANSGENDER is SHAMEFULL & SINFULL,THEREFORE, HER REPUTATION WOULD BE INJURED ? BECAUSE I MADE NO SUCH CLAIM?
The main problem with proving defamation and/or libel/slander of character is the protection of free speech guaranteed by the First Amendment. Courts generally agree that opinion; no matter how malicious a comment may sound and made in this type of forum.
I GUESS the majority commenting here IN YOUR EYES would qualify as being "STUPID" AND ARE DEFAMING PEOPLE, YOURSELF INCLUDED.

It's sad to read that in 2013 people still think being gay is a choice. I will tell you with 100% certainty that it is not. My son just came out to his (very involved) father and I. He is 20 and had a girlfriend for 2 years trying to be straight. He was going to live a lie but realized it wasn't fair to his girlfriend. When he came out his Dad and I, we were sad for him because no one would chose to be ridiculed and hated. We vowed that we would always support and love him, and provide a safe haven for him in a world that sometimes would be cruel and misinformed. On a nice note, he has found that more people are educated and supportive. He hasn't personally had anyone be hurtful or cruel. Being gay (in most cases) is not a choice....I know it with 100% certainty. It has been scientifically proven!

I hate how gay men always do this to women. Why can't they come out straight and tell the world they gay. Talking about the lies and the deceit by the gay people. Women deserve better than this.
