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."

Obama said he "couldn't be more proud" of Collins. It figures. A man lies to a woman for 8 years, allows her to plan a wedding and believe she has a future with him, and all the while he is screwing MEN and likely putting her at risk for AIDS. Few women who are having sex with their FIANCEE of EIGHT years demand that they use a condom, and few gay black men insist that their male partners always use condoms, so SOMEWHERE down the line, Collins was endangering this woman who loved him. THIS is the behavior of which Obama is so "proud. Obama, Collins, and other Down Low males (I will not dignify them by calling them "men") have such contempt for women that it is actually palatable.

The problem is that all celebs are not role models for someone else kids...........they need to disregard that information quickly......Their PARENTS,SISTER, BROTHERS...FAMILY MEMBERS are their role model...People and the Media TV, makes to much out of something that really dont need coverage...

This coverage was to assist Jason Collins in a smooth transition within his group of sport players and his life, without been seen and put on blast .

The media tv take thing and blow it up for their gain ..and then run with it...Not everything is about their agendas....Leave this were it should be his life and his life only..

Yes he had a fiance who was a woman! He was down low! If you know you like men while you are a dude why waste someone's else time for all those years while they could be with someone else.....Good thing about this is that he came out and the women knows that he messed with and women knows not to go their.....Hes a liar......Now she has to worry about a HIV test...

Young people have been bullied for decades..for alot of reason, that are not seen and discussed.......middleschool to high school, college, and now as an adult working on your jobs....It doesnt stop unless the person doing the bullying stop....And they dont need praise for doing so ...or ...be mention contantly ...in the publc eye....If the Media tv, internet would put a chill on alot of this crap it wouldnt of gotten as bad as it is.

It used to be that all people wished to be gay. Back when gay meant to be happy and cheerful. But then the queers hijacked the word to describe their perverted lifestyle.

so either he just decided to be gay.or he is a douche making a woman invest 8 years of her life to him knowing he was gay and would never marry her or anything.either way he is a dick for cheating on her and stringing her alone.i dont care how many presidents or celebs say it.two men or two women together will never be normal.if they want to thank its normal i challenge them.lets have two gay dudes live on an island with no women for the rest of their lives and a male and female.and lets see which ones will naturally carry on the life cycle.fact is the man and woman will create a new civilization while the gay couples island will be empty in time

So how long is Harvey going to milk this. Guys gay so what. Should have been honest but no one is in professional sports. Not the macho image. Would have destroyed his career.

Be real, this guy had an awful career, he only hung around the league because he was 7 feet tall...the only way for him to get the cover of sports illustrated, a broadcasting career, and media endorsements was for him to make a public statement that he is gay. this is not a courageous move but rather a financial one

Why is this big news and why does the president have to call him??? What a person does in their bedroom is their business. The media is acting like this guy just walked on Mars. All the things going on in the world and this is the big news they report.
