UK Tabloids: Naked Pics of Tom Daley Leak Online A Year After Reports of Tryst

Monday Jan 8, 2018

Alleged naked photos of British Olympic diver Tom Daley reportedly leaked online, nearly a year after U.K. tabloids reported on a "tryst" the athlete had with a fan.

The nude selfies were taken in 2016 before Daley married his partner, Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, according to The Sun.

"They are from a time where they split for a few months, which they have both talked about previously, but they reunited," a source told the newspaper of the photos.

Daley, 23, and Black, 43, married in May 2017.

In February 2017, the couple admitted to The Sun that they were back together after a secret seven-month break. Their interview came after an explicit Snapchat video surfaced online, showing Daley in his underwear.

The men said they took a break while Black was in America filming the LGBT history miniseries "When We Rise." They said they agreed they wanted to refrain from being in a long-distance relationship.

"I mean, being very frank, I was out of the country for about seven months last year," Black told The Sun at the time. "I'd been back and forth before that too, and in that time Tom and I took a decision to take a bit of time off."

During the break, Daley connected with a fan on social media.

"It was the distance. It's not like I actually met up with anyone," the diver told the newspaper in February. "I'm 22 years old, and if you talk to someone through social media it is what it is. It was nothing more than that. We never physically met."

The Sun reported at the time Daley's relationship started in February 2016, a few months after the couple announced their engagement.

"...in the modern world this is what can happen - things are more accessible online, and distributed, and they spread like wildfire," Daley added. "People are just exploring and finding out what can be done and how easy it is to not even think about what you're doing online."

Daley and Black officially tied the knot in May at Bovey Castle in Devon, England.

Daley has yet to react to the recent tabloid coverage of the alleged nude photos.
