Tom Daley Feeds Boyfriend Dustin Lance Black In First Photos As A Couple!

Adorable couple alert!

Recently anointed gaylebrity power couple Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have been caught in their first photos together since Daley revealed that he was dating a man earlier this month. Dustin and Tom (Dom? Tack? Tustin?) have yet to officially confirm their rumored relationship, but gurl, these photos (see an array of them exclusively at Just Jared) speak volumes.

The pair were caught leaving a Sephora ad the University of Houston diving center yesterday, where Tom is reportedly undergoing “intense” training for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. After swapping his itsy-bitsy swimsuit for a pair of sprayed-on jeans, Daley left with his brand new beau and even shared a sip of his smoothie. Aww!

Critics of the May-December romance have called the couple’s 20-year age difference into question, though they’re obviously forgetting the fact that DLB (39) only looks 26 and has a body to match his 19-year-old Olympic medalist boyfriend’s. “He makes me feel safe and happy,” Daley said in the video announcing his bisexuality. “Right now I couldn’t be happier.”

In a recent interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, Daley confessed he’d rather not confirm the identity of this boyfriend (who is obviously Dustin Lance Black) because he hopes “it doesn’t get ruined by the media attention.” Yeah, good luck with that, Tom!

Best of luck to the adorable new couple. Next time, save some smoothie for us!

    Well if Tom is in it for the long haul might as well get use to feeding the old man.

  • fredo777

    Those jeans really are painted on. Rawr.


    There’s something strangely hot and (more dominant?) about that “feeding” pic. First time I’ve ever gotten any “sexy” from him.

    I think it’s because he looks much sexier:

    Without the permatan

    Without the permagrin

    With clothes (the way his thighs are filling out those jeans. Fuck! )

  • TinoTurner

    I knew a guy like DLB. He was extremely good looking and accomplished, he could have his pick of any man. The sad thing about my friend was that he was never attracted to a person for who they were, he was ONLY attracted to someones age. I feel sorry for my friend because for right now, he might be still able to get the 20 year old….but one day that’ll end and my friend will be a sad, old queen.

  • 2eo

    @PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID: Agreed, there’s an element in the forceful nature of the fake tan that just puts me off, it’s social connotations of sheer arrogance and idiocy permeate how you think about the person.

    He looks far better without it.

  • Stache1

    @TinoTurner: I know plenty of guys like that. One guy I know has to tell people that his “lover” is his son. He likes to go on cruises and gets asked that all the time. Another guy I know had to act like didn’t know his “lover” in front of the kids friends one time so the kid didn’t have to explain what he was doing with an old man. Pathetic and sad.

  • Cam

    MUCH better without that weird orange Michael Kors tan.

  • imperator

    “Dustin and Tom (Dom? Tack? Tustin?)”

    Or how about NO. Can we please stop with the fucking portmanteau obsession? Stop mashing two peoples’ names into one stupid made-up word as though being a couple must obliterate the individuals and reduce them to merely half of some thing. It’s overdone, it’s idiotic, and it’s one of the more obnoxious mutations of our celebritarded culture. They’re “Dustin and Tom” or “Tom and Dustin.” Frankly I don’t think one should talk about someone else’s relationship if one can’t at the very least keep straight the names of the parties to that relationship.

  • Degas

    Queerty, keep those ageist fires burning!

  • Dxley

    Wow. Oh My Fucking God – HOT!!! It’s almost impossible to believe Dustin is 20 years older than Tom. I’m all for their relationship.

  • mike_goodboy

    I want thst Tom’s ass :P

  • Homophile

    Fuck you DLB – lucky bastard.

  • dougmc92

    DL Black- who goes by Lance, so making up combined names with Dustin don’t work….looks 26 because he’s had work done and uses botox- that’s been rumored long beofre Tom came into the picture- when you troll the Teen Choice awards looking for dates- you HAVE to look 25 ish.

  • Rockery


    Hey Dustin!!!

  • Rockery

    DLB does not look that much older than Tom, and I thought he would be much taller than Tom. DLB looks so much better far away, when you see his face he is ugly but far away he is not bad.

    I don’t know what else to say about them. I liked when they were walking they were touching, I guess.

  • KittyLitter

    can’t even go 1 hour without post a tom daley article now…………

  • AxelDC

    That so sweet!

  • MK Ultra

    They are like sooo our Kim and Kanye! These are the gays of our lives
    I hope they adopt a bi-racial baby together and name it a direction.
    And that they get a reality tv show together, like now. And a music video. And of course a line of products bearing their names.

  • AuntieChrist

    Awww..! They’re like a gay Bogie and Bacall…I wonder how long it will take for them to become Liz and Dick.

  • TVC 15

    @dougmc92: I don’t know if DLB has had “work done” as you say. I’m also a 39yo who is always mistaken to be much younger. I’ve not had work done, and don’t intend to. My parents had good genes, and I’ve respected my body enough so that I just “look” younger than I am. It won’t last, and that’s [email protected]Rockery: I don’t think DLB looks “ugly” in any of those pictures. Maybe I don’t have as high standards as you. They look like a cute couple. Maybe it’ll work, maybe it won’t. Either way, it’ll be a good learning experience for Tom.

  • halfslice

    well I disprove of tom’s choice in boy friend …he could have found a better guy to date !

  • Bonny1986

    I think Tom is looking for some kind of substitute for his father.He is gay and has been for many years but got the courage to “come out” now when he was encouraged by DLB to do so. Impressed he has managed to ceep it seecret for so long. I wonder what DLB did at their first meeting that made it “click” in Tom’s head and he made the first approach by asking him to call him. He also said he didn’t know if DLB was gay or not??????? Hard to belive but I hope he won’t be dissapointed. Good luck to both of them. Tehy look great.

  • mz.sam

    An amazing deep diving couple…lucky bastards!

  • niles

    And the world asks: WHY?

  • mcowenx3

    I think it’s awesome and power to them! Who are we to judge? I know of an Institute that is supporting living in a world of Happily and this is what they’re doing.

  • loren_1955

    Wow, the queenie trolls are certainly out on this. My gosh, in this world that is so lonely and lacks so much love, two people have found each other for what ever amount of time it lasts. Let’s praise them, give accolades and support. All of this about tans, age differences, being ugly, too tall, too short, all of this smacks of so much small minded jealousies, creepy.

    Tom and Lance/Lance and Tom, the absolute very best to you.

  • franiel32

    Be still, my beating heart!

  • Bryguyf69

    @imperator: @MK Ultra: Except that these two have some class, and aren’t limelight whores. Or in the case of Kim, a whore in many other ways as well. At least for now, Tom and Dustin seem to shun the limelight, and are unlikely to exploit their relationship.

  • sirald66

    Tom & Dustin – 1
    Queerty Trolls – 0

  • Bryguyf69

    @imperator: I;m not thrilled by cutesy portmanteaus either but there’s no denying that it helps meet Twitter’s character limit. When I was writing extensively about Luke and Noah of the soap, “As the World Turns,” it sure was a timesaver to simply write, “Nuke.”

  • Dixie Rect

    Who knew Tom had a horse fetish.

  • evdanker

    Tom can take care of himself. Leave them alone.

  • ousooner1997

    They look happy so more power to them. Haters are going to hate. It’s what they do.

  • ShowMeGuy

    @imperator: I agree. This name morphing bullshit HAS. GOT. TO. STOP. Let’s call them “Dustin and Tom”.

  • marc sfe

    @Lazycrockett: I don’t get angry very often, but you are an ageist hypocrite! You too will one day be old.

    I have two friends, in Southern California, 94 and 75; been together 54 years and the 94 yo is still able to do everything for himself.

    Stop the hate.

  • kjm22

    I love Tom’s jeans!

  • Hermes

    @TinoTurner: I very much doubt you know whether or not there was more to any relationship than you projected on it. My partner is 12 years younger than I am, approached me by humping my leg 21 years ago when he was 17 and we have been together ever since and have children, property, investments and a life. May I suggest that you don’t let your own failures paint how you treat others, and yes that was snarky – something I rarely am.

  • Hermes

    @halfslice: You know something, it isn’t your business, leave them alone.

  • Hermes

    @Lazycrockett: That was nasty, uncalled for, and completely evidences your lack of understanding of long term and committed relationships of any kind.

  • Hermes

    @loren_1955: Absolutely agree.

  • princedeligne

    I think they certainly look cute together, however, they are at different stages in life.

    Unless Tom is willing to relocate to the US ( which no 19 year old should ever do for a relationship) or DLB decides to move to England, their relationship may be a brief one.

    Yes, DLB looks amazing and is accomplished, but that will never be enough to bridge what is a generation gap, not to mention a long distance relationship. Tom is just starting out in life. Is he all that experienced with men? I wish them luck, but hmmm..

  • lailaichong

    he is getting fat

  • thebutterflycatcher

    I wonder if they flip flop.
    I wonder if they use condoms.
    I wonder is Dustin shoots on Tom’s face.
    I wonder if they keep the door open when they do #2.
    I wonder if Dustin worries that Tom is blooming a bit of a gut.
    I wonder what Tom’s size is (we all know Dustin’s size).
    I wonder if Dustin can only get off when Tom plows him.
    I wonder if they use spit instead of lube.
    I wonder who takes the other’s load the most in his mouth.
    I wonder when Dustin will begin filming Tom.
    I wonder when they’ll break up.

  • Franco C.

    Why does anyone care about this? It’s their private lives.

  • jwtraveler

    This obsession with Tom and Dustin has gone from absurd to pathetic. Doesn’t anyone have anything better to talk about?

  • Merv

    I hate to admit it, but they make a cute couple. Even if they didn’t, it doesn’t matter what people like me think.

    As for Tom Daley relocating, he already spends a good portion of his time training in Houston, and it’s not as if DLB can’t afford to fly down there frequently to see him.

  • Rockery

    @TVC 15:

    Let’s just call it what it is. DLB is UGLY. I meant this is the best he has looked. But as jim aptly put he looks like Marilyn Manson. He not good looking by any stretch of the imagination IMO. My standards are not “high” I’ve been with some not-so-traditionally-hot dudes DLB is just not good looking.

  • Bryguyf69

    @evdanker: I can understand your sentiments but as someone who has counseled gays, I can tell you that it’s not that simple. Assuming that Daley is honest in saying that these gay feelings are new, he is very emotionally vulnerable. At 19, he is barely post-pubescent, a tumultuous time for many males. Add that to the fact that he didn’t have a normal childhood, and is a public figure, and you’d have someone who lacks many of the coping mechanisms we have. I’m not say that Black would take advantage of him, but the “balance of power” is very lopsided between Daley and Black, and that’s never healthy for a relationship. In fact, if Daley did indeed just come out, he likely has few gay friends thus no support system outside of Black. That means he has a dependence on Black for his emerging gay identity, and dependance is never healthy in any relationship. In my counseling experience, when one defines an aspect of one’s life in terms of another (because there is no other landmark), the relationship is often doomed. This is true of wives who define their identities around their husband (not uncommon last century), and woman who whose identities revolve around their children, etc, etc. All said, I’m not sure if newly-out 19 y/o Daley is emotionally equipped to “take care of himself” at this point.

  • Rockery


    LOL. Let me try and take a crack at this:

    I wonder if they flip flop. NOT YET
    I wonder if they use condoms. FOR NOW
    I wonder is Dustin shoots on Tom’s face. YES, TOM IS PROBABLY AN EAGER BEAVER
    I wonder if they keep the door open when they do #2. TOM DOES
    I wonder if Dustin worries that Tom is blooming a bit of a gut. NO, HE WILL BE ON THE NEXT ONE SOON
    I wonder what Tom’s size is (we all know Dustin’s size). AVERAGE
    I wonder if Dustin can only get off when Tom plows him. YES
    I wonder if they use spit instead of lube. NO, THEY USE LUBE
    I wonder who takes the other’s load the most in his mouth. DLB TAKES IT MORE, WAY MORE
    I wonder when Dustin will begin filming Tom. YOU’RE TOO LATE
    I wonder when they’ll break up. WHEN TOM GETS “TOO OLD” BUT WHO KNOWS WHEN THAT WILL BE

    Let me just say, before the QQQ (Queerty’s Quarrelsome Queens) complain us to sleep, this reply is just in fun, relax

  • Bryguyf69

    @jwtraveler: People care because both are public figures and role models. Daley is considered a national hero in the UK and let’s face it, openly-gay athletes are still a rarity. Especially someone at the height of his/her career. Divers don’t make a lot of money, i.e. there are few if any exhibition events like there is in figure skating or gymnastics. He likely lost a lot of potential endorsements because he came out, and it was all because of his love for Black. That puts it in line with Edward VIII’s abdication of the British throne for Wallis Simpson, which makes it fascinating, no?

  • Camsean01

    Pleasepeople let there stories stop being published. I have heard horrible things abou Lance Black and demand Tom make a much better coice now!

  • kinseyfiles

    What is with all these ageist remarks about this couple. They are in love/lust and having a great time. This crap about Tom having to take care of him in his old age. That’s ridiculous! They are not some straight couple who are going to settle in and have children and grandchildren ! They are to MEN. “partners” for now and having fun. Besides if they would last into old age that would mean that the relationship is so damn strong that I’m sure Tom would be happy to take care of his beloved older partner.Most of these comments against these two sound like they are coming from some old middle aged bitter divorced women. The way I see it is that Tom has found a handsome experienced man who is probably a great experienced lover and established gentleman. He’s smart. A kid his own age would not be able to offer him what this man does. Why can’t you just be happy for them?

  • Bryguyf69

    @kinseyfiles: While I mostly agree with you, there is something awkward about dating someone who is around the same age as your mother.

  • mike_goodboy

    @lailaichong: Well if that’s fat for you then you must be anorectic :)

  • mike_goodboy

    @Rockery: The question is does he have to meet your terms of good looking? It’s Tom’s taste and boyfriend, not yours… In my opinion DLB is not ugly nor pretty, just an average joe. And that’s fine. The fact Tom’s hot doesn’t mean he has to date only the hottest guys around.

  • Ridpathos

    Uh. Don’t care.

  • jwtraveler

    @Bryguyf69: You must be right. I seem to recall that the news stories about Edward and Wallis focused on their age difference, physical appearance, sexual positions and dick size.

  • stranded

    YES! Dustin cut his hair, he’s so much more cuter. They make a cute couple. People keep hating on the age factor but that’s bullshit, the hate because they’re jealous.

  • Bonny1986

    @Franco C.:
    I never had the pleasure to see the scene with DLB having sex so I dont know what size he has. Could you please tell me. Why don’t you think they flip flop? Will he ruin Tom or is he bottom only? Listning to Tom in his video I would assume he is more btm then top.

  • trusgold

    I saw Tom on an interview a week after his you tube and here he made the first move and snuck his phone number in DLB’s notebook and he texted him the next morning. He said this is his first love. He was just so adorable no wonder DLB went after the goorgeous lil guy. If you have ever seen him in his verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry skimpy swim trunks he is so gorgeous. His dad passsed away in 2011 and those two were very close he needs a bf to make up for the loss of love. When in doubt say bisexual. LOL
