"I am not gay," Bruce Jenner insisted during his interview with Diane Sawyer. "I am, as far as I know, heterosexual." But RadarOnline.com has learned there's at least person who would disagree with that statement — including his former boyfriend! In an explosive world-exclusive tell-all, TV producer and journalist Richard Lasko is coming forward for the first time to reveal that a close friend claimed to have had an ongoing relationship with Jenner in the late 1980s — and he had the photos to prove it.
RadarOnline.com has chosen to withhold the lover's name. But Lasko said Jenner's man wasn't shy about his conquest, bragging, "I slept with Bruce Jenner!"
"When I was over at his house, he showed me two or three photos of himself with Bruce," Lasko told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. "They were both shirtless and wearing swim trunks, posing for the camera standing up. The pictures appeared to be taken on a beach. There were palm trees in the background."
The man — a tall, beefy twenty-something at the time — regaled Lasko with the story of how he met Jenner in L.A., and how their attraction grew into a serious romance.
"I got the distinct impression from the way he'd kept the photos that they had a real relationship," Lasko explained. "That it wasn't a one-night stand."
And Lasko said it was a perfect match. "Though Bruce is so much older than him," by at least ten years, Lasko said, "they both looked very handsome. They were both tall with outdoorsy faces."
Both athletes, they even worked out together, Lasko said. But when the relationship fizzled, Jenner, and his lover, would keep the affair a closely-guarded secret for decades. To this day, Jenner insists, "I've never been with a guy," touting his marriages to Chrystie Crownover (1972 to 1980), Linda Thompson (1981 to 1986) and Kris Jenner (1991 to 2014) as proof of his attraction to women. But is it yet another lie to the world that will later be exposed?
When approached by RadarOnline.com, Jenner's love interest — seen below — insisted he was "Not interested" in an interview, and said, "I don't want to talk."
He later denied having any past sexual relationship with Jenner, whose own rep did not respond to a request for comment.
