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."

He's 'gay' because he's about to get fired.

Nothing new here. It is par for the course for the MILLIONS of Down Low black men in America. THIS is the reason that AIDS is the number one cause of death for black women aged 18-35, because black men are such unremitting LIARS that they will deliberately endanger the women who love them, rather than own up to their love of d!ck. SO Collins says he doesn't know any other gay ballplayers? How about DOWN LOW players, since the vast majority of black men aren't even honest enough with THEMSELVES to call a spade a spade (no pun intended.)

Truth    

The guy is an old scrub player that has sat on the bench for SIX teams. He's just using this to get another contract, whether he is actually gay or not. And the NBA will see to it that he gets a contract somewhere now, because they have to.

Happy that he decided to man up and be honest about who he is, but, when he was attempting to hide his sexuality, innocent people like Carolyn Moos became victims, especially if he was seeing men behind her back and having unprotected sex with men and then coming home to her and having unprotected sex. Hence, how straight women contract HIV/AIDS.

Ice-T was the lead actor on this episode and it was a bunch of brothers, one of the characters was a PRO NFL player. One of the best episodes that left me in tears.
