It’s been rumoured that Olympic champion Chris Mears and out film director/producer Bryan Singer are more than just friends. Queerty was the first publication to ask the question by suggesting that they looked “awfully chummy”, and so we went straight to the source, Chris, to ask.

Although Chris has never identified as gay or bisexual and confirmed in 2014 that he had a girlfriend he is a strong supporter of the LGBT community with appearances in various gay magazines and was vocally supportive of Tom Daley’s engagement to Dustin Lance Black.

Speculation that the pair are more than just friends sparked because they were looking very close in a photo where the director’s hands appeared to be on Chris’s thigh, although that aspect of the picture is not visible, and on his arm. The familiarity of the pose gives the impression of, well, something more than chums!

See the picture below.


So we approached Chris’s reps for comment, but they’ve remained tight-lipped about the rumour!
