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."

Gay is the "new get out of jail free card". This man strung a woman along for 8 years of her prime, and just because he announced he likes c0ck, he's instantly praised for being so "brave" and has become and overnight celebrity. Sick and twisted culture we live in.

Women make men guy all the time. Because once they get comfortable with a man, they turn into bitches. And men are tired of supporting your asses just to get p-ssy.

good for him to come out. i'm tired of people forcing stereo types on others. as a gay man working in a tightly white male industry its good to see another in the same situation come out. those who bash him for it, well you know what you are... bigots!
