Of all celebrities that are rumored to be gay, this football star has all proves “against” him. Well, I say “against” as he doesn’t seem ready to come out in case the evidences are indicating the truth.
The biggest evidence that Ronaldo could be gay are related to his persistent visits to Morrocco at his so called “friend” kickboxer Badr Hari. Last year, his frequent flies to Morrocco were a real concern at Real Madrid as Ronaldo was flying during training days.
A journalist from French TV noticed Ronaldo’s weak performances on the pitch and he co-related them with his escapes to his “buddy” Hari.
‘What I’m interested in is what players do on the pitch, and whether their side activities might have an impact on that.
‘Take the example of Cristiano Ronaldo – I’m sure flying off to Morocco three to four times a week to see a friend and cuddle with him might have an impact on his performances eventually.’
Ronaldo did not make any relevant comments, he only said that his weak performances were caused by personal problems.
What about the cuddling? Well, Ronaldo and his friend did not hide the time spent together, furthermore they’ve made it public on social media. Hari posted a photo on Facebook with him holding up Ronaldo. The caption said “Just married, always there to pick you up, bro.”
Another caption of a photo with the pair said: “Poolside chilling with my bro, always great to welcome you in my beautiful country.”
Ronaldo has never denied the rumors, instead he declared that “I’m at ease with my sexuality so it’s not a problem for me.”
He is also supportive of gay marriage, which is not a sign that someone is gay, but among other details…
“As I am Portuguese, I try to keep myself informed about what is happening in my country,” he said when Portugal allowed same-sex marriage.
“We must respect the choices of each other, because, after all, all citizens should have the same rights and responsibilities.”
The star is known to have been dating a bunch of girls and having a relationship with Irina Shayk, yet there is something that is not convincing he’s straight. Another supposition is that he might be bisexual.
The way Ronaldo is dressing has also raised questions. But I think this could be irrelevant if it wasn’t for the other details.
We should not label people by their sexuality, that is so true, but celebrities will always attract public interest. And how much we like to say that we don’t care about one’s sexuality, we actually care. We care to know that people who influence a large audience are part of a community that is struggling.
Many LGBT people were inspired by celebrities that came out and found the power to move on just because someone they looked up to was proud to reveal to the world his sexuality.
Yes, we wait for the day when we don’t have to come out of the closet, but until then, there are too many stairs to climb.
