Former fiance Carolyn Moos is frustrated with the NBA veteran for keeping her in the dark when he called off their engagement in 2009 and since a Sports Illustrated article came out in April in which he came the first active athlete to come out as gay in the major sports.

“A month before I was set to marry the man I loved, he called off the wedding. I had no idea why,” Moos said in the August issue of Cosmopolitan.

“He and I had been together for eight years. We had planned to have children, build a family. Nearly four years later, I got my answer. My former fiancé, Jason Collins, a pro basketball player with the Washington Wizards, announced last spring in Sports Illustrated that he is gay. Jason told me he’s gay over the phone on a Monday morning in April, the same day the magazine hit newsstands. However, he didn’t mention the article – that came as a surprise when I heard about it from a friend.”

Collins and Moos met at Stanford where they both played basketball, but it wasn’t until they graduated with Moos on business in Dallas and Collins who was with the Nets, in town playing the Mavericks in 2001, that they met up and began a long distance relationship. Collins then bounced around from one NBA team to another, which is why Collins waited so long to propose, or so she thought.

    Who cares? He broke up with you. Shit happens. Move on and go make a sex tape like you want to do.

    How strong could their connection be if you dated for 8 years and didn’t know that he was gay. Wow! Either he is a master at compartmentalizing his life or she was not paying attention. Either way, why blast him if you say you loved him so deeply. Seems like she should just wish him well and move on.

    I really hate that this happened to her. He could have found a better way to do this. I hope that she will be able to move on.
