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."

I have a question for the board. I saw where the left has said if christianity doesn't accept gays then it will become irrelevant. Is the same true for Islam? Get caught being gay and a muslim and it's the death penalty.

Okay, i feel really bad for her. The pressures of being gay in society, and not to mention the extreme homophobia among African Americans is the culprit in this situation.

He has not sorted his feelings out yet. He was in the closet, because of all of the bigots full of hate who made him feel like it was not okay to be who he is. If you fell sorry for this woman, take a tip from her, wish him the best and live your life in love. Otherwise the beat goes on.....

That girl should know that her looks turned him gay, lol.... JK good for him; let's move on now.... Now a ton of firsts are going to happen.... April 1st kanye will tell Kim he's gay. April fools, but you are not the father..... This stuff is so overboard; yet it's shorter than a novel and has pictures so it holds our attentions. Enjoy.

Well maybe if he hadn't been so deathly afraid of what coming out would do to him and his career he wouldn't have tried to play it straight for so long. Plenty of gay men years back married and had kids because that's what you were supposed to do. Being allowed to be who you are from the get go makes it better for everyone.

This is the part I ABSOLUTELY HATE about persons supposedly 'coming out'....stringing someone along and wasting their years whilst ur going through ur phase. She could've been happily married to someone else all that time. Eight (8) years?!? Seriously?
