Clay Aiken + Reed Kelly Split, According to MySpace Relationship Status

After two-plus years together, have Clay Aiken and Broadway actor (and sometimes clothes-taker-off-er) Reed Kelly split?

So says Kelly’s MySpace profile, which a tipster points out was changed to “single.” And what song is he listening to? Christina Aguilera’s “”You Lost Me,” which goes “She has won / Now its no fun / We’ve lost it all / The love is gone. And we had magic / And this is tragic / You couldn’t keep your hands to yourself. I feel like our world’s been infected / And somehow you left me neglected.” Should we infer that’s an accusation of cheating? Should we assume Clay will turn this all into a power ballad?

  • Hilarious

    I’m sure someone somewhere is surprised. I’m not, but I’m sure someone is.

  • Alexa

    Sad. They were together a long time. He’s listening to Clair de lune from Twilight, though, not that Christina song. Should we infer from that Clay is a vampire? He is very pale.

  • SAMe

    Yesterday it was “I Will Always Love You”. Maybe the song has nothing to do with anything other than he likes it.

  • Judy

    I’m sorry to see that they have split….It’s always unfortunate when a relationship ends. No matter who….We’ve all gone through problems in our lives….I wish them both all the best. Clay is a great guy, and Reed is very sweet.

  • ashleyj

    This makes me sad :(

  • Pat

    Break ups are always difficult, but they both seem like sweet, nice guys and I’m sure they will survive. Good luck to both of them.

  • Sandy

    Agree with the 3rd post.

  • Megan

    They are both great guys and I wish them the best! BTW, sometimes a song is just a song.

  • Vickie

    I’m a fan of both guys, and I’m sorry it didn’t work out. Reed did post the Christina song and I Will Always Love You for one day. Earlier today, he changed it to Claire de Lune(he’s a big Twilight fan.) Last I heard, Clay was still on Reed’s FB friends list. So, who knows what the deal is?

  • Dale

    Not surprising. Clay is a quiet, stay at home kind of guy whereas Reed liked the night life with lots of people around him. Oil and water. I wish them both happiness in the future. They are both nice and decent people, just not meant for each other.

  • dawna

    I don’t thank a song necessarily means anything. Anyway, the song on that myspace linked is Clair DeLune, so if their was another song there, it must not have meant too much. There is always two sides to a story. It’s between Clay and Reed, and if Reed is talking publicly about his relationship and/or breakup with Clay, then he isn’t the kind of guy Clay needs, anyway. Can’t stand a kiss and teller.

  • Lola

    These are two great guys. It is always hard breaking up. I wish them both the best.

  • Dixi

    *snort about Twilight, too funny*

    If it’s true, then that’s too bad, it’s always sad when a relationship ends. Since we’ll probably never know for a fact what happened just a bunch of “unnamed sources” maybe we should leave it at – too bad it happened, but wish them both much happiness in their lives.

  • gym

    Why is this anyone business but their? Breakups happen all the time. If true then good luck to both of them.


    So sorry to read this. I don’t know much about Reed, but I had thought they were quite happy together. I am a fan of Clay’s and know that he is a private person–hope this can remain private as it is not really our business. He is a good man and I wish him nothing but the best.

  • Teresa

    They seemed like a good pair, though total opposites. I hope that they both find love and happiness in their lives.

  • SAMe

    @Vickie: Last I heard, Clay was still on Reed’s FB friends list. So, who knows what the deal is?

    It was probably a friendly parting of the ways.

  • katy

    People and circumstances change. If they “broke” up it is meant to be. Actually, neither had ever said what their relationship was and they are both very busy men and relationships take time. I hope the best for both as they are sweet guys.

  • DB

    @gym: Have to agree with gym. This is their business, not mine or anyone elses.

  • SAMe

    The haters are slow to arrive tonight. LOL

  • Rene

    They are both nice guys. Clay is more of a homebody while Reed is more a show-off body. Clay keeps his private life private and no one will probably ever read his thoughts anywhere while Reed has chosen the path to be more public. As for the songs, sounds like a drama queen to me.

  • TIN

    I feel very bad for Reed and based on the Aguilera song he posted he trusted and got burned. I also feel sorry for all of these deluded Claymates who don’t see any meaning in the song. Duh! And trying to cover this up won’t work. I think that some know that Clay has had a reputation for cheating and it’s too bad Reed didn’t see it coming. Clay is not the saint the not-so-bright Claymates think he is. (Sweet southern boy, my eye.) Don’t feel bad for Clay, I’m sure he can find someone on Manhunt real soon, and he likely has already.

  • lily

    This is news because???? From what I have read, both young men are great guys. They seemed to make each other happy. If they are no longer together then they have joined the ranks of most of the world. Almost everyone has had a break-up in their life.

    Lets not make this into something more than what we know…..which is nothing.

  • Dennis W

    What grade is everybody in? I only ask because my mom won’t let me have a space at MySpace.

  • Jan

    Sad for both of them. They are both nice guys and both very talented. I wish them both the best.

  • SAMe

    Well lookee here! No22 wins the race of the first hater on the scene and it only took a little over an hour.

  • limbergercheese

    Is this guy a teenager or what? Breakups happen all the time. Usually people like celebrities don’t have to announce it to the world on the Internet. Grow up, fella.

  • sammi

    They were a cute couple, both great guys but they were really different and it was a long distance romance which can be hard to maintain. Wish both of them the best.

  • Dixi

    @SAMe: I had Let’s Start a War by Exploited on my myspace page – I’ve now changed it, don’t want anyone reading anything into THAT one

  • SAMe


    Reed isn’t a celebrity he just dated one for awhile.

  • Llana

    Private lives should stay private, I wish both of them well.

  • suziq

    My first thought was that I better be careful what songs I put on my Myspace page. Do you think that just maybe its none of our business?

    Would you like your personal relationships to be all over the net being discussed by people who don’t know anything about it.

    Reed is a very talented dancer. Clay is a very talented entertainer. They never put on displays of love and passion for the public to see……so tell me……….why is this news??

  • marion

    I feel badly for both Clay and Reed. It is always sad when a long term relationship ends, painful to both parties.

  • Hillary

    The song stated in the article is not on Reed’s My Space so I’m confused. If it’s true that they have broken up, I’m sorry to hear that. I see the haters are here. Why. The article is not even accurate. There is no song playing on Reed’s My Space with those lyrics.

  • JJ

    I so enjoyed Reed but now not so much. People that find it necessary to blab about a celeb relationship are just looking for attention. I so hate that Reed has been such a disappointment but I guess I am not surprised.

    He so needs to grow up.

  • TIN

    I think that QUEERTY gets the point here. Too bad the rest of you don’t see the forest for the trees.

  • dawna

    #35, I agree.

  • hf2hvit

    I wonder how many of these respondents put as much time into voting as they do into trying to put their noses up these guys’ assholes and crying when they smell shit.

  • SAMe


    Don’t go chasing off any of our straight allies with your crudeness. We need every vote from every person.

  • johnnyBgood

    HF2HVIT: Really doesn’t make sense. I am not dumb and I know that you are trying to make it out that they were playing games with each other…..trying, again to make something out of what you really don’t know about.

    I would much rather see people show their true emotions about something than to try to be “too cool” and fail.

    Sorry for both boys…….but that is life. No big deal!

  • corinne

    Why is this considered news? Nobody knows squat for certain. People grow apart all the time.

    Nobody’s business but Reed. He posted. He needs to grow up.

  • JJ

    Well, I vote at ever election. Hope that helps HF2HVIT!!

  • TIN

    Has QUEERTY been taken over by the Claymates tonight?

    I really feel very bad for Reed and based on the Aguilera song he posted he trusted and got burned. I also feel sorry for all of these deluded Claymates who don’t see any meaning in the song. Duh! And trying to cover this up won’t work. I think that some know that Clay has had a reputation for cheating and it’s too bad Reed didn’t see it coming.

  • johnnyBgood

    TIN………You are repeating yourself.

  • SAMe

    Tin is all alone at the moment but no doubt she sent up the bat signal and reinforcements will be arriving any time now.

  • Lucy

    TIN you are using song lyrics that are not even on Reeds page to diss Clay. This sounds like Junior High.

  • Lucy

    The Bat Signal just hit JP’s comments. So they and the FSers will be here. Gee. I wonder who the tipster is and I wonder who just put this link up in JP’s comments. I hear a bug eyed frog outside.

  • TIN

    I think QUEERTY been taken over by the Claymates tonight.

    I really feel very bad for Reed and based on the Aguilera song he posted he trusted and got burned. I also feel sorry for all of these deluded Claymates who don’t see any meaning in the song.

  • Larkan

    Can Tin be banned for spamming?

  • Henry

    I hope Reed writes a warts and all Tell-All book. I’d love to know his thoughts on Clay’s Manhunt and webcam escapades., the behind-the-scenes of Clay’s coming out announcement, and all the other nitty gritty.

  • Lucy

    Maybe Reed would like us to share what he was doing in France while he was on tour with Mylene. The breakdown in the Clay/Reed relationship started then.

  • elle

    No. 41 – Reed didn’t post anything. All he did was change his status and change his song. He has not posted anything as a comment.

    I don’t see anything wrong with what he did. Perhaps it conveys an intended message or maybe something just resonated in the music in his life right now. I don’t see Reed as the type of guy to go out and start granting interviews or anything. This is really a minor thing and considering how well he has dealt with everything that seems to come along with dating Clay Aiken, I am willing to let him have this moment to express himself. Maybe he felt like he didn’t want people to think he was trying to deceive them. Should he have not changed his relationship status to save face for both of them and then end up looking like a cheater when a picture surfaces of him dating another guy?

  • Lucy

    Elle….all Reed had to do was change his status and leave the song lyrics out of it. Many Clay fans have known they were not ‘together’ for at least six weeks. Now we have John Paulus peeing his pants because Reed provided him an opportunity to diss Clay. AND JP was dissed by Reed ages ago when JP tried to become Reed’s friend on his My Space. So JP gets in two Gotchas for the price of one.

  • notmyrealname

    First of all, I am in the Broadway community and I know Reed personally. I know a huge majority aren’t going to like what I have to say but here goes.

    If Clay Aiken had done to me what he did to Reed after all of the devotion that boy put forth to both that relationship, to Clay’s son and even more to that man, I would be doing more than adding a song or two to my myspace.

    Reed is a very classy and “high-road” type of guy and I give him credit for doing such a minor thing after Clay embarrassed Reed the way he did with his actions. They weren’t just private things either. We knew what was going down throughout the BWay community, but Reed stuck by him and loved him regardless.

    Those of us on the inside know what really went down, so easy with getting your claws out at Reed when he was truly the one who was constantly standing up for Clay and trying to make it work again and again through all of Clay’s habitual indiscretions.

    Clay is a great guy, but I don’t feel he is ready nor yet does he deserve someone as special as Reed at this time. I think someday he will be though and I will be happy for him when he finally gets there.

    (Now I’m not looking forward to hear the screeching that is going to follow when I click submit, but I HAD to say somehing)

  • Larkan


    Use your real name and maybe, just maybe someone will believe you. Otherwise you’re just another hater or the same one passing off the same BS under a new name. Come on, prove who you are or piss off.

  • Lucy

    Of course you did. You are an “insider.” If Reed is High Road Kind of guy, why not just tell Clay it’s over and end the relationship? Using song lyrics is the low road and so high school. But then you know it all because you are an “insider.” Thanks for sharing.

    I would like to know how everybody has so much to say about two people who were hardly together. Reed was in Europe, on tour, and then opted to stay after the tour was over. Clay was in the states. It really never ‘looked’ to me like either was all in love and stuff. I never got that vibe.

  • Jean Laviolette

    Larkan, let’s see YOUR real name. In fact, post a photo too, so we know you aren’t some elderly overweight Claymate that’s just here to spam the site with your stupidity.

  • Henry

    Uh oh, claymates didn’t think that on a popular, well read gay website that they could possibly come across gay men that actually may know or interact with one or both of these gay men personally?

    Dig yourselves a bigger hole ladies.

  • notmyrealname

    You’re all a bunch of bitches. The reason I’m not going to use my real name is because I watched what you did to Reed. You stalk people to death. And Reed would not be happy that I am even commenting on any of this, I just felt that Reed needed at least one friend in his corner.

    You don’t believe me? There is a picture of Clay and another boy from the time when Reed was in Paris that was captured by photographers. Both of them had their hands in the pockets and they were walking down a street in LA.

    People tried to write it off as Clay was hanging out with a family friend. It was NO family friend … Clay was caught on camera — in the press — on a date, cheating on Reed while he was out of town. When Reed found out about this he was crushed. So yes, let’s talk about what was happening that summer while Reed was in France if you really want to go there.

  • Jean Laviolette

    Henry, talking about bigger holes, the crazy Claymates are some of the biggest holes you’ll ever meet. They won’t believe anything negative about their reality show loser, despite the fact that he’s lied to them over and over again. They’re here to shut down negative mentions of the Gayken. No wonder his career is in the crapper.

  • SAMe

    Oh my god. Clay walked down the street in full view of the Papps with a guy. Hold the press!

  • shit

    fuck you, all of yoi!!!

  • sammi

    notmyrealname..if true, sounds like Reed wanted more out of the relationship than Clay did. Sorry he got hurt but sounds like he held on too long. Still think he should have kept it to himself.

  • shit

    fuck you, all of you!!!

  • Lucy

    {{{You don’t believe me? There is a picture of Clay and another boy from the time when Reed was in Paris that was captured by photographers. Both of them had their hands in the pockets and they were walking down a street in LA}}}

    I remember that picture and the fans identified him and the guy was so benign that I can’t remember his name or his connection to Clay. Now. That picture is of Clay walking down the street with his hands in his pockets and another guy at his side. Very public. If they were on a date then Reed needed to end things. What was Reed doing in France on his free time? Going to Mass?

  • Yakker

    So much to say about something none of us know anything about, including Notmyrealname. I wish them both well, and I hope they both find the right one someday. Otherwise, I don’t know anything about it either!

  • steven

    @ #59

    Seriously … I’m in the business too and have worked with one and hung out with the other at gatherings. There are probably going to be plenty of gay people who read this blog who have similar experiences to this leading to having more information on the topic than some random fan that lives in the midwest somewhere. It’s a very small world out here and in the end there are very few well kept secrets about anything.

  • Gina

    I am a Clay fan and have been for years but I believe what Larkin has posted. Leave the guy alone – he has a right to stick up for his friend and what he has posted rings true to me.

  • sammi

    Oh well, notmyrealname…forget what I said, you just outed yourself, go crawl back in your hole, dipshit.

  • shit

    fuck off!!!!!

  • Anne

    Well, everyone was saying they wished BOTH of these guys the best until TIN and his cronies showed up. Some things never change.

  • SAMe

    Sorry, Gina, but for all we know its Clay’s stalker posting that stuff. You know how the internet works. Pictures or it didn’t happen. There are plenty of pictures of Reed half naked wrapped around all manner of guys that are not Clay. He looks like the guilty party to me.

  • Faye Parker

    Why are you all picking on my little boy?! So what if he takes it up the butt from thousands of anonymous men on Manhunt? That’s his way! Reed should have known better than to date my manslut of a son!

  • Lucy

    And No Name Broadway Insider, I don’t like being called a bitch when I don’t think you have been treated all that badly. I’m just saying that Reed should have ended it long ago if he was unhappy. Also, you talk about how Clays fans stalked Reed. Have you ever seen or read how Reed has manipulated those Clayfans right back. Reed has a literal fanbase of Clayfans who love him. Several times Reed has worked the crowd at Clay events. He was all over the hotel seeking out Clays fans the night of the PBS taping. He was introducing himself and chatting it up and charming the old ladies and they adored him for the sweet boy he was. Was he? Sweet? Sincere? Who Knows. Reed and Clay will be fine. Shit happens.

  • shit

    Fay Parker you are a whore!!!!!!oh yes you are!!!!

  • Henry

    It’s amusing how Claymates try to hide all the comments they don’t like.

  • TIN

    Some of us who have followed Clay a long, long time know that what Notmyrealname is saying is likely more that 99% true and it is so sad. It is not about being a hater. It’s about recognizing what’s going on. And it’s so hard to see Reed trashed the way some fans are doing.

    Thank you NMRN for being so genereous as to say that Clay is great guy but just not ready for a guy as special as Reed. I think you are probably being too kind.

  • Anne

    No one was trashing ANYONE TIN until you and your swamp things showed up.

  • Madelyn

    Steven. So you are “in the business and not some random person who lives in the midwest.” Think about it. Us hicks in the midwest have brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and cousins working and socializing right there in the broadway community. I love it when my brother and cousin come home for a long weekend. They have lots of good stories to tell. It is a very small world.

  • notmyrealname2

    Since all of my comments have been hidden I had to create a second name … I am NMRN

    Lucy, I take back the bitch comment, it was uncalled for. I just honestly am saying that I really do know Reed and he really has been through a lot of hell with this one. People can believe me or not about any of it, I don’t really care. I just get protective of my friend.

    Reed maintains to everyone that Clay has a ton of redeeming qualities and is nothing but sweet in everything he says about him. It has just been hard to watch him go though stuff when Clay says that he wants to be with him, Reed stays with him and then he goes and does things that are not in keeping with that. Reed is caring and compassionate and sometimes I feel that is his downfall. Reed was with Ray Leeper for seven years and then Ray cheated on him. Reed still stuck it our for a great deal of time to try and make it work because that’s the kind of guy he is.

    In the end though sometimes there are trust issues that you cannot overcome. It is common in gay culture and is sad.

    As far as the picture goes on Clay and that guy, they tried to say it was a nephew of Jamyes or something and honestly that was simply not the case. There was a huge blow up about this when it hit.

  • Steph

    I think I am beginning to believe NMRN as really knowing Reed because we have never really had any true timeline as to how long Reed and Ray were together.

  • Larkan


    You have no insider information. Every Clay fan knows about Ray Leeper and lots of us are talking to and interacting with Reed for years. I don’t believe a word you say. You’re just a hater posing as someone you aren’t.

  • Carol


    This picture was taken over the July 4th weekend. Reed looks very happy to me. And I agree with the comment upthread about Reed being half naked and hanging all over guys in lots of pictures. Word is that Reed is the frisky one. Reed is a free spirit and never seemed all head over heels in love with Clay to me.

  • shit

    What pictures? I want to see it!!!

  • Larkan


    What makes you think this is a true timeline? Are you that dense that you believe everything you read?

  • shit

    the pictures of a nephew of Jamyes, yeah that!!!

  • [email protected]

    These are the last things I will say without giving up too much information to prove that I truly do know Reed. I am aware that people have know about Ray for a long time, but what most people don’t know is that Reed and Ray still own three properties together. An apartment in NY, a house in Pasadena and land Wisconsin next to Reed’s parents 300 acre horse ranch. (I’ll bet that last bit has not been in the tabloids or on the web so I hope you know understand that I am not a poser.) Take that back to your “sources” and check out those facts and you’ll find them to be true. Believe what you will, but Reed is a great guy and still speaks very highly of both Clay and Ray even after everything he went through with both of them.

  • [email protected]

    What’s bullshit? Check it out … it’s all true.

  • shit

    then fucking REED is not the great guy after all…..

  • [email protected]

    For God’s sake … contrary to me advising him against it, I think Reed is still listed in the White Pages online!

  • shit

    Fuck Reed, he is the shitty one…

  • Larkan

    This proves that you are lying. If you know Reed so well you would know who the guy is walking with Clay and you would know that he is just a friend. You’re a poser.

  • sammi

    How is walking down a street with someone being unfaithful? Even if he did go out with the guy, Reed was gone for months to France and then ended up staying there after the Mylene tour was over. Not exactly a way to keep a relationship going. Out of sight, out of mind as they say.

    I also don’t like that you said the way the fans have treated Reed. He’s been treated very well by the fans, is well liked and has gathered a lot of fans from Clay. Most of the fans feel badly that he was hurt. Some are a little upset he brought this breakup out into the public arena because we were afraid of exactly this happening and Reed should have known that it would too. So fans are a little ticked at him, but no one is hating on him. He’s a great guy. I hope he finds someone who appreciates and loves him.

  • shit


  • sammi

    Corrected to say some fans are ticked at him. Not that many really. People understand how hurtful breakups can be. We’ve all been there.

  • Carol

    The picture was not a nephew of Jaymes. Do you mean Brody Jenner because Brody was quickly ruled out. One look at a picture of Brody and you knew it was not him. Maybe it was a date. Who knows. Again, Reed looks like he had a very happy fourth with a new BF so all is well.

  • shit

    Oh for the sake of fuck, who cares!!!!!!
    Let them fuck as they please, who really cares, fuck is is a fuck and that’s all to it.

  • shit

    I would fuck both of them

  • [email protected]

    I give up. You all just know so much. You’re not capable of recognizing a truth because you’ve created your own version. Enjoy your version, I hope it brings you happiness.

    And appropriately in the words of Reed – and how he signed his first autograph at dance competition in middle school (which would later become his calling card)

    Big smiles…

  • kathy


    Yeah, agree with anybody who thinks Reed is an exhibitionist. I’m not a fan of his and I’ve always thought that he’s been riding on Clay’s coattails, he’s is not a celebrity, Clay is. He loves bragging about his relationship with Clay. They are so different so I’m not surprised.

  • shit

    Carol, yeah, he was very happy with his new BF, good for him, hope Clay has new fuckboy as well…

  • [email protected]

    PS Carol, Casey has a boyfriend who was one of the original investors of Facebook and they’ve been together for quite some time. Reed and he are just great friends. Know your facts.

  • shit

    NMRN2, tell me more…

  • shit

    YES, it is all about fuck

  • shit

    Big smiles… haha is he smiling now?

  • james

    he’s rid of Clay … that would make me smile.

  • shit

    Fuck I want to see pictures of Clay’s new boyfriend, hurry up bitches, show it to me!!!!

  • kyle

    Can everyone just lay off the two of them?? get lives people!

  • shit

    Fuck you James!!!!!

  • Bobert

    I see the claymates invaded Queerty ..again.

  • shit

    Bobert are you are fucking gay, WTF

  • SAMe


    Let me think… An article about Clay Aiken draws in his fans to read and comment. What a concept! Quelle Surprise! Did you expect Biebers Beavers instead?

  • shit

    LOL,SAMe, not fan of Clay nor Reed, just fun for a fuck….haha

  • TIN

    NMRN2 it is so sad that these Claymates still live in this knee-jerk delusional world. And its not worth it to try to reason with them. I believe you, because it’s not new behavior with Clay and because of some of the things you have said about Reed.

    Tell Reed that many folks love and admire him for all he has done and for the person he is and even for his being too trustng perhaps. So sweet. He just didn’t know what he was in for with Clay.

    Some good people hang on and try to keep a relationship even though they aren’t being treated well because they have a big heart. I think Reed has a gigantic heart. I wish him the best and hope that he has a new project soon. We will be waiting to hear.

  • shit

    Yeah, Reed has a gigantic you know what, but shit so does Clay, so shut the fuck up you ugly frog, go fuck yourself, because no one will.

  • shit

    low comment rating, WTF DID I SAY?

  • shit

    Like I said, everybody needs a good fuck in their life, so what so
    different in Clays or Reeds life, lets them fuck their brains out, they are just like us, mofo.

  • shit

    OK,good night, hope you all have a good fuck night, just like Clay or his mofo ex boyfriend, sleep well.

  • brihova

    God some of you are pathetic. A post like this should not be getting 120 responses. Post about ACTUAL news that concerns the LGBT community and peoples lives should be your concern not this unimportant tripe.

  • Devon

    Just when I start to think Adam Lambert’s sparkle cows are the most obsessive, annoying fanbase ever spawned by Idol, the Claymates start stampeding again.

    Stay classy, ladies.

  • Dennis W

    HeY, OK I’m back. Does anybody know what grade what’s his name NOTMYREALNAME is in? The only reason I ask is because my mom who is going to take me to New York City to see a Broadway moovie will want to know how I know stars since I’m still not allowed to have a MySpace Space.

  • Wisdom

    @[email protected]: There isn’t anything you have said that isn’t already known either from RK posting about it or someone had the info and discussed it. That’s where you got it from. If there was just one piece of info that wasn’t already out there maybe we could believe you. Go ahead post something not known and I’ll ask if it’s true.

  • dawna

    I feel bad for both guys. Some of these comments are utterly ridiculous. A breakup is a breakup, we all have them, there’s usually two sides to a story, and it’s none of any ones damn business. Anyone who claims to know Reed or Clay personally and is posting here, bullshit. If so, no friend are you.

  • Hilarious

    Wow you Claymate bitches are creepy. Take it down a notch.

  • Endless Men

    That is his bf ??? looks creepy

  • jeffree

    @Hilarious: thumbs way up — these claymates are like cult members. Very creepy. Almost as scary as the Glamberts, but with less mascara :-)

  • gym

    NMRN2 just wondering how happy Reed would be with his “friend” sharingso much of his prvate life on a puplic board?

  • Maddie

    Reed…what you did by publicly posting those songs on the day you changed your status to single was mean, childish and ugly. Relationships end every day of the week and people move on. You know that Clay is a celebrity, and you knew that your mean little plan would hit the news someplace….do you feel proud? He’s been thru hell and back the past 7 years and while you claim to love him you have just added to it. Congrats.

  • Faith

    Oh for heavens sake if it wasn’t for the nosy fans nobody would be the wiser about the breakup! You don’t know the whole story, there is always 2 sides. Reed is allowed to handle it whatever way he feels he needs to. I’m sad for both of them and I doubt the blame lies solely with either one of them.

  • Maddie

    Faith…Right..we don’t know the whole story. We only know Reed’s mean little take on it. He is fully aware that Clay would never publicly defend himself against this type of blindside. So we will never know both sides. If its over, its over…move on. What Reed did was a deliberate move to give a message to Clay’s “nosy” fans. Fans who supported him in his Stripathons only because of his relationship with Clay. He used the “nosy” fans then, and he used them now.

  • Ken

    Sorry but Reed has every right to tell his side of the story. Clay shouldn’t cheat on his boyfriends if he wants them to maintain discretion.

  • JOJO

    Reed acted like a scorned high school little girl by posting something that should have been private in a public place, and knows full well that Clay Aiken will not respond Clay is too mature for this type of BS.

  • ron

    Of all the articles on this blog, this one has generated the most responses. Pitiful! Is everybody on this site a teenager?

  • Carol

    Ken, you know that Clay cheated on Reed how? Did you know that Reed cheated on Clay?

    Another interesting point is that John Paulus Blog has been adamant from the time Reed surfaced that Reed was not a real BF to Clay but paid to ‘escort’ Clay while Clay worked on his image. There was ‘insider’ information on this. That would put Clay and Reed in a contractual relationship where neither was required to be faithful. Now the contract is up for several reasons. Clay has found someone and so has Reed. Awwwwwww.

  • Alexa

    @Ron, most of the replies are from Claymates and Clay haters (both equally nuts IMO), very few are from regular readers. I assume the post showed up on Google. I’m surprised at the amount of replies, I thought most of the crazies were focused on Adam Lambert now.

  • Megan

    Alexa, it sucks to know that Clay still has tons of fans that love and support him, doesn’t it? Seven years in the making. Amazing!

  • Pat

    Awww, they’re both cute. Glad they were together, sorry they broke up. It happens to all of us. Good luck to both of them.

  • Alexa

    @Megan, um, no, it doesn’t. Anyone who actually reads here regularly knows I’m a Clay fan. It’s his crazy fans I hate – and just the crazy ones, the ones who troll the internet defending Saint Clay and actually making things worse for him. And if you’d actually read and understood my reply, you’d have seen I hate the hater trolls as well. You’re all nuts. What the hell did Clay ever do to deserve you idiots?

  • SAMe

    There are 2 kinds of Claymates. The out and proud and the ones in the closet.

  • Megan

    Alexa, what are you doing here then participating in the madness? LOL

  • kevinVancouver

    @ron: Seriously!! 144 comments thus far! all y’all are lame !! ps really myspace? still ? ugggh

  • Alexa

    @Megan, because, as a lesbian, I’ve participated here for years, posting on a variety of subjects, not just Clay. And unlike you and your friends, I saw this post because I was reading here, not because I was obsessively Googling Clay. I don’t have a problem with sane fans coming here and posting, not all the fans posting here seem crazy. But you’re right, it was a mistake joining in the madness.

  • Lee

    I have a question for you regulars. I hear that this is a big blog with lots of readers. That it is held in some regard by many on the internet. If you regulars see other commenters as crazy fans and haters then why would Queerty put up a blog that is blatantly skewed to make Clay look bad and Reed look good. This should have been a private matter and Reed did not help with the songs he put up yesterday. But still, Queerty could have told John Paulus to take his information and put it on his own blog (which (I hear) JP has done). Doesn’t Queerty recognize how transparent this blog is. Hell, the picture is bigger than the article.

    After reading this blog, I just took it for granted that this was another trashy gay site. Again, why would any respectable blog not just leave this alone?

  • pete

    @Lee: Recess is over. Now go back to Summer School, you little twit.

  • johnnyBgood


    Hmmmmm. I am confused. Why did you say this? Lee asked a question. Is he not allowed to ask a question and hope for an answer.

    As an outsider looking in, I find what Lee said a valid comment….your reply seems like something a 12 year old would say.

  • Hilarious

    @jeffree: I guess they think spamming a gay blog with total nonsense and attacking the regulars is going to help him gain more fans.

  • BradSA


    What regulars? Its all haters vs fans commenting in here.

  • corinne

    Same old…same old..


    How about those Mets?

  • jeffree

    @Hilarious : It’s fascinating that threads on important stuff, like DOMA, DADT and ENDA get a few dozen posts at most, but Clay and Adam get us into the 150 plus realm.

  • Dennis W

    I miss Leif Garrett and David Cassidy. OMG!

  • Forrest

    It is pretty sad that this story has so many more comments than the DOMA victory posting. Anyway, there are two sides to every breakup and they were in the relationship not us. Nuff said

  • BradSA


    The photos get the most attention. Why aren’t you complaining about how popular they are when there is important stuff, like DOMA, DADT and ENDA to discuss?

    PHOTOS: A Scheerer Thing

  • FlowerGirl

    I thought that unless one is married, they’re single. I’m dating someone, but I’m single (we’re not married), so I don’t know what the big deal is.


    MYSPACE?!? EVERYONE knows Facebook is where you officially change your “status”.

  • Black Pegasus

    Who gives a flying shit about either one of these Unmemorable Queens??!!

    Anyway, I got a date tonight. I’ll try to give a fuck about
    poor little Reed and Clay while I’m sucking this DL Basketball
    Player’s 11 inche Dick…

    ** grabs car keys and struts off **

  • Gina

    Reed has Both Sides Now on his Myspace. Is that supposed to have some hidden meaning as well?

    Most of the Clay fans adore Reed now just as they did before the breakup. There are a few troublemakers.

    We love you Reed and wish you well. You seem like the sweetest person.

  • Bubba

    In his MySpace profile he says his favorite books are the “Twilight” books – all four of them! he specifies – and his favorite TV show is “Wipeout”. Ummm, any brains around here?

  • BradSA

    Maybe Clay is really straight. He was apparently dating a teenage girl all this time if you go by Reed’s drama queen behavior and his over sharing.

  • visitorqueen

    This should have been a private matter. Reed knew the fans woule see this and run with it. Guess Reed has some growing up to do. If there was a glimmer of hope in reviving the relationship it’s probably gone now.

  • Free2b

    I know that some say there are more important things to discuss, but there is a lesson learned here regardless of whether you are gay or straight. When it comes to matters of the heart, we are all basically the same. We are just human and all want love in our lives, and when it ends it can hurt like hell. Clay and Reed will deal with the pain in their own way and who are we to lay blame on one or the other since we don’t know anything? I guess the amount of comments on this subject just reflects the rarity of discussing an actual relationship between two gay guys who loved one another ending and how it affects us all in one way or another simply because we can ALL identify with the feeling emotionally. These are both great guys and whichever contributed the most to the breakup will have the added burden of pain and regret in mistakes made and hopefully learns a valuable lesson. I don’t believe either should be judged or ridiculed!

  • Jen

    Great post, Free2B.

  • Patty

    I think John Dahlstrom & Reed Kelly should get together and write a book about Clay. I’d buy it!!! LOL

  • LateAsUsual

    Believe me or not, I do happen to know Reed as a friend & former coworker & know enough about the couple to say that they really were in love & the break-up was pretty much mutual due to distance & careers & all the obstacles that brings to the table. Clay was always really sweet with Reed & Reed was a loving partner. Whatever details happened at the end I know not, but to say that Clay was a habitual cheater just does not conform with reality. Whomever said that Clay was a homebody & Reed liked to party has touched on a pretty basic difference in personality that ensured this wouldn’t last. But it was a lovely relationship while it lasted to all who witnessed it.

  • brooklyn

    man up – danserboi you know and i know who was the problem in this relationship grow up grow a pair

  • Cam

    It’s weird, the same people on here that refuse to believe a break up could possibly be the fault of Clay Aiken, are the same people that used to flip out and scream at people who even suggested that he might be gay.

    That said, too bad the relationship didn’t work out, they’re both fairly young and will move on soon.

  • BradSA

    Those fans who were adamant that he wasn’t gay are the ones who either offed themselves, dumped Clay or turned hater. The fans here are the ones who accepted Clay as he is and are still fans. Go find those uptight fundy hypocrites if you want to berate someone.

  • benjy

    Watching the actions of the 2 of them over the past nearly 3 years, it’s clear that Kelly is quite the exhibitionist while Aiken is fiercely private. That does not bode well for a lasting relationship. I’ve seen people from all walks of life take potshots at Aiken & he never responds in kind. Even a past Idol pal who used him for all she could get dumped him very publicly when he balked at a joint venture she proposed. He’s never dissed her, in fact, still promotes her albums & career! Yet she continues to backstab him in interviews. To see a former lover take her low road is sad, but typical. Guarantee you Aiken will never diss Kelly out loud & probably will urge his fans to support Kelly’s career, just as he did an ex-employee he had to fire who publicly dissed Aiken in return. Aiken always behaves with class & kindness in these situations & the other parties end up showing their true childish colors for the world to see. It looks like the most basic reason for this breakup is that one party is mature & discreet & the other, younger one is decidedly not.

  • Maddie

    Okay….I am a Clay Aiken fan. I love his voice and I love who he is. Me…I honestly got totally uber sick of seeing Reed Kelly’s naked body all over Clay Aiken’s fan sites. Whatever happened between Nekkid Boy and Clay doesn’t matter to me. Reed has used Clay’s fans to garner donations for his strip show and he has befriended the pathetic “celeb” hangers on for his own purposes. To me he is a narcissistic whiner who is enthralled with his own body. And what exactly did he do for Clay’s son? For most of the “relationship” he was in France and or New York. When Clay’s son wasn’t with Clay he was with his mother, Jaymes Foster. What did Reed do for him? He’s a B’way chorus boy among many other B’way chorus boys, no better, no worse. Obviously Clay was over him, so he should just STFU and move on.

  • Lynnie

    IMO if you are into Reed Kelly, thats great. Just please keep his name OFF of Clay Aiken’s fan boards. To the majority of us, if he is no longer a part of Clay’s life, we are just not interested. If he needed to whine he could have done it on his private Myspace, but it was important for him to whine to Clay’s fans in hopes of alienating them from Clay. I honestly don’t care who Clay has sex with (unfortunately its not me). If Kelly thought there was more to the “relationship” then Clay did, thats his problem. Since Clay was single I assume that its his business who he is with, not mine.

  • Lynnie

    P.S. to my above comment:

    Clay Aiken must be one hell of a great lover for all the angst that is following a simple breakup. LOL.

  • JOJO

    totally agree with both Maddie and Lynnie above…. Reed is still using Clay fans, if you are his fan, post about him on his fan board(if he has one that is, since being a dancer in a chorus line may not have too many fans except for the ones he bamboozelled on Clay Aiken fan boards).

  • heather

    Reed Kelly had a good run with Clay and Clay’s fans. How do you think he raised so much money for Broadway Bares? Odd how he posted his status on a public MySpace once that was over. Now that he’s shown his true colors let him get his own fans on his own merit.

  • Mary

    Okay–I am definitely not a regular here…I am one of those awful Clay fans who google to see what he is up to…and I found this site. I do not know Reed…I am not his friend on facebook or myspace. I DID meet him on the street in Raleigh the day after the PBS special…and he seemed very down to earth, and when I returned home I sent him a message telling him that I was glad I had the chance to meet him, because as a Clay fan, I worried that his flashier lifestyle would make him an unusual partner for Clay(not that it was any of my business…but I sometimes get a little ‘motherly’ when it comes to Clay) Reed kindly responded to my message.
    However…I agree with what many others have said…first…it’s really none of my business…but if I’m going to express an opinion…it would be that basically, I think they were two very different personalities. If there were just the two of them to consider, then maybe, (or maybe not)..the relationship would survive…but when there is a child involved, you need to see the bigger picture…you need people in your child’s life whose lifestyle is appropriate for a child to share.
