Rumors have it that the Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo might be having problems with regards to his sexuality. The 26-year old soccer superstar has been speculated to be gay as countless of photos can be found in the internet affirming of his odd habits and ways that seems too homosexual for many.
The controversial issue may have stirred from a variety of reasons. People who are envious of him could have started the gossip as Ronaldo was reported to be the current highest paid football player. The issue could also have started when he showed preference for pink shirts. The Portugal National team captain has dated quite a number of beautiful women that one may doubt the validity of this issue. He was also reported to have a son named Cristiano Ronaldo, Jr. and is said to father another child from his girlfriend Irina Shayk.
Evidences, however, are strong enough to support the conviction that Cristiano Ronaldo is gay. A number of viral photos and videos show Ronaldo holding and touching body parts of fellow football players. Ronaldo touching another man’s thigh, cupping fellow player’s buttocks, and staring intently at fellow teammates’ package have made headlines on TV. His vanity and odd fashion taste also added to the rumors as he loves wearing tight fitting jeans and shorts showing the bulkiness of his family jewel. His hairstyle, facial features, belts, and bling are also too chic that David Beckham will look brutish when compared to him. American socialite Paris Hilton has also allegedly commented that the Real Madrid forward is too gay for her.
Ronaldo also openly supports same sex marriage. He stated in an interview that everyone should have the same exact choices, rights, and responsibilities as everyone is created equal. Gossip makers, however, wouldn’t agree with his sentiments. His admission of favoring homosexual marriages has even strengthened the thesis that Cristiano Ronaldo is gay. Speculations also have it that Ronaldo paid for a surrogate mother to bear his child.
These reasons, however, don’t seem to prove his homosexuality in any way. Paris Hilton is actually believed to have been dumped by the Portuguese striker and became hostile about their short, abrupt fling. There also a number of people who could attest to his heterosexuality and who personally know the mother of his son. His recent engagement to his Russian girlfriend Irina Shayk is also a proof of his true sexual identity. The two, who started dating 2010, is planning to have a summer wedding on July 2012 in Madeira, Portugal. Friends and parents of Ronaldo confirmed the issue as he proposed to the lingerie supermodel last Valentine’s Day in New York. The two are quite secretive about the wedding and has not commented about it.
The only reason one could think of why the “Cristiano Ronaldo is gay” issue continues to circulate and proliferate is that the guy was never heard commenting or refuting it. He continued playing for his teams, doing his charitable works, and entertaining his fans instead of stooping low which only shows what kind of dignified man he is.
