Jason Collins Ex-Girlfriend Of 8 Years Had No Idea He Was Gay

Jason Collins Ex-Girlfriend Of 8 Years Had No Idea He Was Gay

How can you date a guy for eight years and not know that he's into men? Well, it's very possible.

That's exactly what happened to Carolyn Moos, Jason Collins' ex-fiance. Jason made history yesterday by becoming the first active NBA player to come out as gay. Before then he was living as a straight man.

He dated Carolyn, a '6''6' female basketball star for eight years and even proposed to her. In 2009, a few months to their wedding, Jason called it off and ended things with her.

Carolyn told TMZ today that she never once suspected that Jason was gay while they were dating and only found out this past weekend when he revealed everything to her before coming out to the world and also told her his homosexuality was the real reason he ended things with her in 2009.

Carolyn told TMZ: "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."

"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."
