The man Tom Daley is dating is Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, multiple sources reported Tuesday.
Daley, a 19-year-old Olympic diver from the United Kingdom, announced that he was dating a man in a YouTube video posted Monday. Black, a 39-year-old screenwriter who won an Oscar for his Milk screenplay about Harvey Milk, was returning to America from Russia as the news of Daley’s coming-out spread.
Daley did not name the man he was dating in his video, although the pair had been spotted together in Hollywood back in October, Queerty reported at the time.
Black did not respond earlier Tuesday to a request from BuzzFeed for comment about whether the pair is dating.
