Robbie rogers dating
producer Greg Berlanti and Los Angeles Galaxy soccer player Robbie Rogers have called it quits.
They duo dated for a year and a half before deciding to be "friends," Rogers admitted in an interview with Sirius XM Progress.
Rogers came out publicly as gay in February 2013 and immediately announced his retirement from football, instantly departing Leeds United as a midfielder.
He later reversed his decision to quit the game and signed for US team LA Galaxy.
In an ‘En Route’ interview with GQ Magazine, Rogers, the magazine’s ‘Man of the Year’ is asked a series of questions. I don’t know how she enjoyed it or if she enjoyed it as much as me.
When asked what a Man of the Year means, he said they would be “secure in their sexuality and isn’t afraid of what people think.” “I’m most proud of the journey I’ve taken from being a closeted athlete and playing professionally for 6-7 years, and then coming to terms with myself and having the courage to come out.” Given the choice of talking about losing his virginity or doing a forfeit, Rogers chooses the former. First time with a guy was actually not until I was 25, after I came out – super awkward.
"You report it, and he had all the right to do that.
And it's not going to stop me from dating people or being public about it. It doesn't bother me, to be honest."Berlanti has worked on "It's a small town and people figure out things," he said. And we're very supportive of each other."If break ups were a good thing, this would seem like the best one ever.
But there are times when those issues actually matter.
We were willing to talk about domestic violence when it came to former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher’s murder of his girlfriend, for instance, but those same conversations didn’t happen when former NFL lineman Kwame Harris assaulted his male lover outside a restaurant shortly after.
Now, after 11 years as a professional, the former Heerenveen and Columbus Crew player has said he is hanging up his boots for good after suffering an ankle injury.
He said in a statement on lagalaxy.com: “It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from the game of soccer.
