Yesterday singer and actor Federico Diaz announced that he was gay on Twitter.
The Uruguayan star is rumoured to be the boyfriend of Latino superstar Ricky Martin and has been linked with the singer several times. The two have denied that they are in a relationship but tongues are still wagging.
In his statement on Twitter Federico said:
“The day has come. Only God knows when and how… I only let myself be led. I feel that God prized me with homosexuality. I had feelings of confusion and uncertainty for many years knowing that my real self was hiding..
Today I am beginning to walk a new life, without ties, without lies, without dislikes or pain,” he continued. “Because these are feelings that only repress and generate much anguish in your heart. I came to this world to be happy, accomplish my dreams, take care of my loved ones and leave a positive mark during my journey through life.”
Whether or not he’s with Ricky is no one’s business really but the rumours have brought Federico to our attention which we are pretty happy about. To celebrate his coming out here’s some tasty pictures of Federico as well as a couple of videos:
