British actress Lorna Fitzgerald of the popular show EastEnders is reportedly in shambles after learning her boyfriend, Keo Reid, starred a series of gay fetish videos.
The 18-year-old actress is reported to be “absolutely distraught” after videos of 25-year-old Reid getting spanked, whipped, whacked, and receiving blowies from older chaps were discovered on an S&M website, according to Pink News.
“It’s any girlfriend’s worst nightmare,” a source told the prestigious Sun newspaper. “After seeing the videos, she feels she can never go back.”
A friend of Reid told The Mirror: “Keo just did these films as a bit of fun for good money… He could have had a job as a plumber or he could have a job getting his ass spanked. It’s as simple as that.”
The friend added, “Although it features men, it’s not a gay thing.”
Hmmm. We know straight men are a lot more bisexual than people think, but we’re pretty sure performing in an adult video alongside another guy would be considered by most everyone as “a gay thing.”
But Reid’s friend insists otherwise. “Keo is completely straight,” he said.
Reid was reportedly paid £350 ($550) for each fetish film, and is believed to have starred in as many as 20 videos. The oldest one was uploaded in December 2012. His most recent video was uploaded on October 16, after he and Fitzgerald had been dating for six months.
According to sources, Reid sincerely hopes his “completely straight” gay past doesn’t affect his relationship with Fitzgerald.
“He has been on such a journey in his life and has really turned things round,” a source said. “He’s really happy with Lorna. Keo has really fallen for her and he’s upset and so sorry to have embarrassed her like this.”
So far, both Fitzgerald and Reid are refusing to comment on the matter.
