The British Olympic diver is reportedly dating Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who’s 20 years older than he is, after coming out — and revealing that he’s in a ‘happy’ relationship! Read on for more details. 

Tom Daley, 19, surprised his fans when he came out in a YouTube video on Dec. 2 and said that he was dating a man, who’s reportedly the Oscar-winning Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, 39. Tom is “besotted” with him, according to The Sun, and they’re even planning a future together!

Tom has been dating Dustin, who won an Academy Award in 2008 for his screenplay for Milk, the film about gay rights activist Harvey Milk, according to E! News. The two were seen together for the first time in October getting coffee, although they reportedly met in London over the summer.

“[Tom] is besotted with Dustin. They love each other and aren’t concerned what anyone says about age difference. Dustin is very proud of Tom for making such a powerful statement about his sexuality,” The Sun reports. “They are officially in a long term relationship and are talking about having a future together.”

Dustin, an American, has also won other prestigious writing awards and is an active LGBT rights activist.

Tom Daley Comes Out As Bisexual

In Tom’s video titled “Something I want to say…” Tom candidly discusses — for the very first time — his current relationship, possibly with Dustin, saying, “I met someone and it made me feel so happy, so safe, and everything just feels great. And, well, that someone is a guy.”

Tom also believes his late father Robert, who died from cancer in 2011, would also be OK with his announcement. “He always said to me, ‘As long as you’re happy, I’m happy.’ And right now, I couldn’t be happier,” Tom says in the video.

Do YOU think the 20-year age difference between Tom and Dustin is too much, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

Good for them. I hope they are both very happy together. They are both consenting adults so the age gap shouldn’t matter.
