You know it was bound to happen sooner or later...a man has come out claiming to be the former gay lover of American Idol star Clay Aiken. According to Rush & Malloy, The National Enquirer is running a story this week about a man named John Paulus, a former army ranger who is claiming he had a sexual encounter with Aiken (who has always publicly denied he is gay). He said that their friendship started on Dec 16th when Clay instant messaged him to his screen name "valleyprettyboy" after seeing his ad on a gay dating website. The pair proceeded to chat it up for the following month before meeting at a Quality Inn Hotel in Garner, NC. Now I don't find Clay to be the most attractive or sexy man, so picturing him doing anything with anyone, man or woman and reading about his alleged exploits kinda yucked me out. But for all of you "Claymates," here are some excerpts Rush & Malloy pulled from the National Enquirer interview with Clay's alleged lover:
- "Clay told me his ex-lover was selfish and mean. And within five minutes he started to feel my arms and put his hands on my leg."
- "We started to mess around and Clay said he wanted to have sex with me. Before I knew it, we were having unprotected sex. "
- "He kept telling me, 'We're going to do this many more times.'"
The National Enquirer says Paulus passed a lie detector test and reportedly has his instant messages with Aiken saved. The grossest part is that he claims to also have a "DNA encrusted wash rag." Bllllleeeeeeeecchchchchchchchchch!!! Ok, now that is just taking it too far. Too far!! I don't know if I believe this fool or not. He appears in the National Enquirer without any shirt on if that gives you an idea of what kind of gigolo he probably is. I know that if he really was with Clay in an "intimate fashion," he is an ass for duping him and selling his story to the National Enquirer. This is a tough situation, because Clay does have the right to his privacy no doubt. BUT, the fact is, from very early on everybody already thought Clay might be gay and if he is, well, who cares? If you like his voice, you like his voice...wouldn't make a damn of a difference to me. The thing that would turn me off about him more are the stories that he is now a big primadonna. C'mon boy! The truth could set you free!
