The reported boyfriend of Olympic diver Tom Daley, Dustin Lance Black, is speaking out about his graphic gay sex photos. The Oscar-winning screenwriter for Milk found himself in the middle of a scandal in 2009 when photos and a tape of him having unprotected sex with his ex-boyfriend were leaked online. But now that he is rumored to be the boyfriend of Daley, who surprised fans this week by revealing he is bisexual, the gay sex photos of Black have been making front page headlines all over again

Although Daley's rumored boyfriend remained mum on the subject in 2009, Black has released his first statement on the photos and said that he regretted his decision to not use a condom in the racy images. "It is unfortunate that individuals and other outside parties are trying to profit from material which is clearly private," he wrote. "I have had the privilege to speak to people across the country, both gay and straight, on a number of critical issues including safe sex. More important than the embarrassing of this incident is the misleading message these images send. I apologize and cannot emphasize enough the importance of responsible sexual practice."

Although Daley and Black have not publicly confirmed their relationship, a source told The Sun that "they are officially in a long-term relationship and are talking about having a future together."

"Come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great. And, well, that someone — is a guy," he said. "My whole world just changed there and then. Of course I still fancy girls, but ... right now I'm dating a guy and I couldn't be happier. It feels safe and it really does feel right." An insider also revealed that Black was "very proud" of Tom for his video message.

None of this will affect Daley's plans regarding the upcoming Olympics, though. He said he is still fully intending on going to Rio in 2016 and trying to win medals for Great Britain.
