Tom Daley Posts First Photo with Boyfriend Dustin Lance Black to Instagram


Tom Daley made the first public acknowledgement that his boyfriend is screenwriter Dustin Lance Black on Saturday, posting a photo to Instagram with the caption: "#splash celebrations :) Beef Wellington...yes please!!!"

Daley was referring to the broadcast of his first episode of the UK version of the reality diving competition Splash.

Daley and Black had been spotted in December in Houston where Daley trains for the 2016 Summer Games, but the two had previously not acknowledged that yes, they are an item.

  1. Immediately after, he posted a picture of a busty woman in a bikini with the hashtag #stillfancygirls.

  2. Have Aaron Schock seen this? Since we know now he follows Tom Daley's instagram ;)

  3. What does a 39 year old guy see in a teenager? Is Dustin not compatible with adults? Is it ok for adults to date teenagers? Dustin should have more in common with Tom's mom than with Tom himself. Dustin is the same age as the person that gave birth to Tom.

  4. Hey look, it is a guy with a Peter Pan complex dating a guy who has daddy issues. This relationship definitely will stand the test of time. lol

  5. ok for those of you commenting on the age difference.... isn't it possible that DLB is just using him for hot sex and being child Daley thinks they are in a serious relationship?

  6. I'm sorry. I think DLB is kind of creepy.

  8. I have good friends 20 years younger and 20 years older than me. People who find age a barrier to forming connections probably aren't worth knowing.

  9. They are both attractive, intelligent, accomplished individuals, who, like anyone else, may have faults. If their relationship lasts only one more day, or a decade, so be it. Why not support their attempt at making a go of it instead of tearing them down at every opportunity? The gay community can only be helped, by having high-profile couples, of all types, succeed.

  10. This man is creepy... Long history of using this barely legal teens

  12. It is sad to see a promising young man's future being extinguished by the lecherous machinations of a serial user.

  13. @TRH:

    The absolute nerve for you to come in here with your reason and logic; more catty, less saintly.

  14. I find the attitude to the couple by some of the trolls online kind of pathetic. DLB is rich, successful, looks great for 40 and has bagged one of the hottest guys in the world. You can almost smell the rancid jealousy humming off the posts above.

  15. "What does a 39 year old guy see in a teenager?"

    I imagine the same thing we all see in Tom: a champion. And, yeah, it's OK.

    Sorry you're so jealous, MercyMe.

    Posted by: Randy | Jan 4, 2014 7:44:51 PM

  16. exactly is his future being extinguished? from what i can see he's on a hit tv show in the UK, he's training for the 2016, oh and he has an oscar winner as a boyfriend. that doesn't sound anything like what you're talking about. and as for the gossiping about being a 'serial user' do you have proof, know someone who was 'used' by DLB. do you? because from where i stand (yes i have a standing desk) all i see is a lecherous queen who is nothing short of jealous.

  17. At least he isn't dating Aaron Schock...

  18. TRH, Adult men sleeping with teenage boys does not help the image of gay men.

    Posted by: MercyMe | Jan 4, 2014 7:46:14 PM

  19. We have no idea what is going on with the Daley-Black relationship, unless either one has explicitly said why they're dating the other one.

    All we can fairly do is wish the couple well, whatever their intents are.

  20. MERCYME, you sure are on a crusade! I clicked the link back to Andy's December post (I didn't see it at the time) and started reading the comments. MERCYME writes "Google Jeff Daleacy and Dustin, google Robby Rasmeussen and Dustin, go to Flickr and search for Frank Fay"

    And so I did. What's amazing is that googling each of those just brought up all the posts MERCYME made on several different news articles due to his/her poor spelling of two of the names. Why are you literally copy/pasting the same thing on so many articles? Do you have a Google Alert for Tom Daley and post the same thing on every article? Talk about predatory...

  21. They have been dating since they met in March 2013 so it's been 9 months alright? That is a long time and they obviously have a serious relationship. Honestly, if Tom loves Dustin and Dustin loves Tom, what does it matter to you? Nothing. Let them be happy with each other if it's meant to be.

  22. A 19-year-old (teenager) and a 39 year old middle-aged man, that's creepy

  24. @ MERCYME. As a general statement regarding relationships between 'teenagers' and 'adult' men, I agree with you completely. But there is a world of difference between someone who is 'thir'teen and 'nine'teen. And there is also a world of difference between the maturity level of say Justin Beiber and Tom Daley who are both nineteen. I mean, there's no comparison.

  25. @MercyMe: If you don't want to date someone older than you then don't do it. It's really none of your damned business if Tom Daley dates an 18 year old or a 45 year old. If it's not right it will unravel. Meantime it really is none of your affair. So, if *you* don't want to date an old fart that's entirely your thing.
