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."

Is being gay the ultimate "get out jail free" card? If someone is gay does that mean they should not be expected to uphold the same decency we expect of anyone?

If a guy broke it off with his fiance because he was secretly carrying on with another girl and he didnt fess up to the reasons, we would rightfully reproach him. But like the former NJ Gov McGreevey, not only is he excused for this, but is made out to be an example of courage and bravery? Please.

Ive known and worked with hundreds of gay people who were open about their lifestyle (some couldnt hide it if they tried). This I can respect and will judge them on the content of their character, i could really care less what they do in their bedrooms. His reluctance to be open about his lifestyle is one thing, but that he even perpetuated a long-term relationship (we are talking 8 years here) all the while knowing it would not lead to where the other person expected it to be is worthy of reproach.

He shouldnt be ashamed of who is....nobody should. But he should be ashamed that his own weakness and dishonesty brought tremendous pain to someone Im sure he cared about and someone who certainly loved him.

Kudos to him for being honest and coming out! People being insensitive to who they are with while closeted is nothing new. You shouldn't have to hurt people on your journey to being you. The less stigma there is the less reason people will have to keep secrets.

Jason Collins is a deceiver!!! There is nothing good or proud about being GAY. God did not make you that way. Read Book of Genesis.

If he didn't have money would she have stuck around for 8 years waiting for a ring? Come on now, if a guy wants to marry you he would be fore that long, she should have moved on, you can't blame him 100% for wasting her life, she played a part in that as well.

Being gay is not biological. If it was, the gay gene would have been bred out of mankind millions of years ago since gay people cannot, by definition, pass it on to the next generation. No, being gay is nothing but a trend and you are on the wrong side of it. Go away. Do whatever you want. Simply stop boring the rest of us with your sick little perversions. We don't want to know. We don't care. Not even a little.

You have been engaged for 8 YEARS that alone should have told you something.

Might as well take this opportunity to reveal some other black men on the Down Low who are in sham "engagements" or marriages:

John Legend (sham engagement to Teigen)
Will Smith (sham marriage to Jada)
Michael Strahan (his "girlfriend" is a serial beard)
Eddie Murphy
P Diddy
Jay Z (marriage of convenience)
Kanye West (baby mama of convenience)
Dwayne Wade(Gabrielle Union is his beard)
And at the top of list, the Down Low poster boy himself, Barack Obama, former card-carrying member of Man's Country, a gay bath house in Chicago. Everyone in Boystown knows Obama's poorly kept secret. This is why he can take the time to call a gay minor NBA player who reveals his gayness, but has NEVER called one grieving mother of any of the hundreds of black children killed on the streets of Chicago. Wake up America, and smell the gay agenda.

Maybe she turned him gay. Brad turned Chely Wright gay ......... or maybe that was the truth as told through the tabloid; "If You Believe Pigs Can Fly, Try This One on For Size".
