Actor Terell Carter is outed when ex-boyfriend posts photos of them together on the Internet
What is it with ex-boyfriends lately?
First Dustin Lance Black is forced to endure a former lover’s betrayal when photos of them having sex were posted on PerezHilton.com.
Now comes this: actor Terrell Carter, a gorgeous actor and singer who has starred in a number of Tyler Perry’s stage productions in his famed Madea series, was outed over the weekend when his former boyfriend posted photos of himself with Carter in bed, according to Advocate.com.
Carter starred in Class Reunion and Meet the Browns as well as the big-screen adaptation of Diary of a Mad Black Woman.
The alleged ex-boyfriend is Alex Cortez who started posting the pictures on various websites last week as well as on his MySpace and Twitter accounts.
From The Advocate: Black gossip blogs have flocked to the photos. Gossip site MediaTakeOut.com has more than 450 comments, while gossip blogger Sandra Rose, who originally reported that Carter was gay earlier this year, wrote that “99% of the actors in Tyler’s movies are gay.”
In this day and age, you wish more actors would be out and proud – especially when you see that the careers of Neil Patrick Harris, T.R. Knight, Ian McKellen, Chad Allen, John Barrowman, Peter Paige and Robert Gant are thriving. It’s about talent baby!
Still, the decision to come out or not should always be left up to the person. It’s so uncool to out someone who you supposedly cared about. That said,. I hope Carter can embrace being out and be more successful than ever.
