Cristiano Ronaldo Refuses To Respond To Gay Rumors — The Fantasy Lives On

Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 9.04.03 AM

Noted soccer star, underwear model and endowed statue subject Cristiano Ronaldo has fueled more than a few homoerotic fantasies, but the Portuguese demigod remains tight-lipped regarding which team it is he’s really playing for.

Claims were recently made by a French journalist that Ronaldo was flying to Morocco four times a week for “cuddles” with kickboxer Badr Hari.

While we certainly don’t mean to insinuate that two straight guys can’t enjoy a cuddle every now and then, it was just the latest rumor about Ronaldo to reach international headlines.

And one that he isn’t keen to address, except cryptically.

After scoring an impressive four goals against Malmo, Ronaldo spoke to a reporter about feeling off his game. Four goals sounds pretty “on” to us, but what do we know?

The 30-year-old told Spanish TV station Antena 3: “I have been below my level.

“You have to take into account that I have had some personal problems.

“I would prefer to keep them to myself but I am in a better place now.”

And the rumor mill continues churning.

    El que calla…otorga

  • Kevin J Desmond

    He’s not gay but the guys he has sex with are … but don’t tell anybody, shhhhhhhhhh

  • John Mac Farlane

    He does not owe anyone any answers

  • Captain Obvious

    If those eyebrows don’t tell you all you need to know then you have no gaydar and that’s ok. No one will judge you.

  • Milton Appleby

    The gay media needs to subside with this tabloid fodder. It’s pathetic.

  • Larry Belusko

    Why should he feel compelled to satisfy anyone’s curiosity?

  • RIGay

    The closet is a very dark and scary place; especially if it is all you know.

  • David Pickersgill

    When you put people on pedestals they always seem to end up being used for target practice.

  • Billy Budd

    My gaydar has always told me he is GAY.

  • notevenwrong

    Well, his friend has a hard-on.

    I’ll take the friend, who wouldn’t go gay for that sexy daddy?

  • drivendervish

    I think Ronaldo should come out because he is such a good player that it’s not likely to hurt him very much except with some endorsements but even those might be made up by more enlightened corporations. But I don’t think anybody should out him. I would feel differently if he were like a lot of politicians who are gay at night and enact laws to discriminate by day but Ronaldo’s never said anything bad about gay people to my knowledge.

  • Brian

    Good on Ronaldo for not responding to the homophobic speculation.

    And why should he come out even if he is attracted to men? It’s his choice, not anybody else’s.

    If he’s attracted to women, which he obviously is, he’s entitled to be attracted to women. If he finds men attractive – which many straight-identify men do – then he’s entitled to that as well. He shouldn’t have to declare anything regarding his sexuality to satisfy the homophobic speculation.

    Homophobic speculation also exists in the gay male community. It’s very disappointing.

  • Brian

    By the way, if two straight-identifying men are physically close to each other, why does everybody start speculating in a homophobic way? If two women are physically close to each other, I don’t see that degree of speculation.

    The double standard lives and breeds – even amongst gay men.

  • Steven Wall

    Okay can the LGBT media just get off this obsession with him please, imagine if he did come out how much of a backlash you would face “I was hounded into coming out by those I beleived would be more supportive” if he’s gay so what if he’s straight who cares. Your using him for hits, sales and veiwing figures, when did we become rabid in “Outing” celebs surely after what we have all experianced in coming to terms with our own sexuality we should have more decency in allowing others the same courtesy.

  • SpunkyBunks

    I’m a huge soccer fan, and its quite common knowledge among the straight soccer fans that Ronaldo is gay. How many straight guys do you know like to party on their yachts in the Mediterranean with other hot guys in Speedos? There’s tons of pictures of Ronaldo doing that. And the straights don’t care!

    Unfortunately, the gay media has this insatiable need to out celebrities and make sexual preference a major issue when its not. Its his business, leave him alone.

    Focus on his talent, not his desire for dick. Everybody loves dick. Can’t blame him!

  • notevenwrong

    @Brian: “By the way, if two straight-identifying men are physically close to each other, why does everybody start speculating in a homophobic way?”

    Um, maybe because of the visible hard-on?

  • Danny Ray

    If he’s happy being with him–then, that’s all that matters! It’s really none of our business! I agree with Steven’s comments on this subject matter!!!

  • Silver Veloz

    He’ll come out in his own time, when he’s ready. Next topic please.

  • Giancarlo85

    @Brian: You don’t know what you’re talking about as usual. You’re views on sexuality are some of the most ridiculous and outdated. This isn’t the 1950s. We’ve actually done research on sexuality. Maybe you should actually read a book.

    @SpunkyBunks: No it’s not. I’m a SL Benfica and AC Milan fan. That isn’t a common view at all. In Europe and even Latin America, rich guys do that all the time and they are straight. There are also countless pictures of women around Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s pretty much like Antonio Cassano when it comes to women… only thing he’s a whole lot more attractive than Cassano lol.

    Some fantasizing please. It’s embarrassing. He’s straight. Get over it. By the way, what league are you a fan of? If you say “MLS” that says it all.

  • Giancarlo85

    @Giancarlo85: *Stop fantasizing… yeah.

    So embarrassing. @Brian: By the way dummy they don’t those stereotypes in Europe. But in purtianical America if you even touch someone it is sexual harassment.

  • Billy Budd

    Notice how he shaves his armpits and picks his eyebrows.

  • DDJuan

    He was never asked about the Gay rumors. His personal problems comments was in relation to his forms the last couple of weeks. He generally doesn’t address personal questions he’ll say I don’t talk about my private life.

  • DDJuan

    Btw, Gay guys hiding in the closet don’t take pictures like that.

  • Giancarlo85

    @Billy Budd: As do a lot of guys in Europe.

    @DDJuan: Bingo.

  • Guy068

    I don’t care if he’s gay or straight. I just want him to continue being topless in photos…

  • martinbakman

    @Guy068: Topless with Badr Hari would make it extra special. :-)

  • Chris

    He’s rich. So his flying anywhere he wants probably means as much to him as does my driving up the street.

    And since whatever he says won’t be believed — unless it’s a confession accompanied by full-on clickable pictures — why should he say anything?
