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."

Which gene is it that gives them the theatrically swishy waddle and a screeching articulation with fricative and affricate consonants?

the truth is    

Boys get messed up in the phallic stage if they are touched in a sexual manner, by the same sex. That is why they become so flamboyant. The get confused.

She wasted 8 yrs of her life with a gay dude. I know straight people that have wasted 30 yrs of their life with a straight person.

His contract is up after this season. It won't be renewed. But that's okay. I GUARANTEE you he'll be on Dancing With The Stars next season. This "coming out" was all about raising his profile as he moves on to the next stage of his career/life post-NBA. Well played, Jason.

Maybe if we live in a world where nobody will judge you for being gay or straight, or impose that you have to marry someone of the opposite sex, this wouldn't happen that often. So, before blaming him, we should blame our society for being so homophobic and judgmental.

Do you know why he felt the need to hide it from not only the world but even those closest to him...B/c the world is full of small minded people who feel it is their right to judge another human being for their sexual pref. Where or not he or she likes men, women or both is NONE OF ANYONEs business. It doesn't have any effect on your everyday life.
And the worst are those who say it does have an effect bc you don't want 'the gays' influencing our children. Its not a CHOICE, do you think anyone would choose for society to bash them at every turn?
Let people live their life & kudos to Carolyn for supporting Jason. I support Jason and am an avid fan of basketball. I remember both of them throughout their playing years and I cant imagine what he went through all these years. I support Jason and any other person that lives their life in TRUTH.
