In a bizarre turn of events, boxer Yusef Mack now claims that he’s gay. Last month, Mack gained notoriety after fans spotted him having sex with two other men in a gay porn. The boxer initially stated that someone drugged him on the set of the film, telling fans he thought he was going to be filming with women not men. That argument didn’t hold up very long after the company behind the XXX flick threatened to sue Mack for defamation.
The boxer responded by issuing a statement retracting the drugging allegation, instead telling fans he’s bisexual and willingly participated. Now, Mack is taking it a step further, revealing that he’s gay despite having 10 children and a fiancee.
“I’m gay. I’m tired of holding it in, it is what it is. I live my life. I’m gay,” Mack explained in an interview with FOX 29’s Quincy Harris.
“I was hurt. Like to myself. Then I think about my children, like how am I gonna explain this to my children,” Mack said, “I called a couple of my friends and told them ‘I’m thinking about killing myself.'” Mack says one of his daughter’s is furious over the ordeal, telling him, “Kill yourself. You embarrass us.”
The disgraced boxer is now scheduled to appear on Dr. Phil where he will reveal more about his battle with sexual identity. Until then, you can check out his interview with Harris below.
