Alleged Gay blackmail target: MLB pitcher Carl Pavano

High school friend claims 3 year relationship.

by Anonymousreply 7904/29/2013

Wasn't he "dating" Alyssa Milano? Interesting.

Does this meas she was also a beard for Barry Zito?

Sister outs brother.

by Anonymousreply 503/29/2012

He just married his long time girlfriend and mother of his child last off-season. At least in Minnesota, there have been no rumors of him. I know he was not popular in New York, but he is well-liked by his team and media here. Kind of odd the former classmate would not try to extort him while he was with the higher profile Yankees, vs. Minnesota where the media will be much less intense, and probably quietly not cover the story. I am leaning towards thinking he at the most experimented in high school, but it is kind of hot to think of him with his current catcher Joe Mauer...

*ROLL EYES* Another gay man who can't handle living as a gay man. Go marry a woman, damn you! Fuck her until she's pregnant, bastard! We all know now that CARL PAVANO IS GAY and no amount of marrying or fucking or reproducing will change his sexuality. I don't like that the ex-boyfriend tried to extort him however it's time to get a fucking backbone and live as a gay man the way you are supposed to be.

by Anonymousreply 703/29/2012

*ROLL EYES* at R7, who goes batshit crazy over Pavano -- who asked for none of this -- and offers a mild "I don't like" for the guy who wants to extort him.

You really need a clue, R7. Pavano might be gay. He also has the right to live his life the way HE wants to live it. YOU don't get to decide, asshole.

"Sister outs brother"

Shouldn't that be: "brother outs another sister"?

by Anonymousreply 1003/29/2012

They were in high school. Who knows what was happening. Maybe Pavano was just a horndog and the other guy blew him on a regular basis and mistook it for a 'relationship'.

I'm more pissed off at the would-be blackmailer; he makes gay people look obsessed and unhinged.

by Anonymousreply 1103/29/2012

Why would anyone give the blackmailer the time of day without proof?

by Anonymousreply 1203/29/2012

R6, Pavano was absolutely hated because he stayed injured the entire time he was on the Yankees pitching staff. Making millions just sitting there!

I think the several years Pavano was on the team, he may have pitched less than 10 games.

Good riddance!!!

R9 must be R7.

Neither of his posts make much sense.

by Anonymousreply 1403/29/2012

While I can believe Pavano had the "affair" the blackmail guy is an idiot. That's a blackmail fail of the highest order. He really didn't understand that his allegation, without some sort of hard evidence, wasn't going to be taken seriously by the majority of people. Even if people do believe it, it can so easily be brushed aside by Pavano, since there is no proof. And since the straight majority generally wants to believe all athletes are straight, there's no way his master plan was ever going to work.

The guy actually thought he was going to get an SUV and a book deal out of it. Now he gets nothing and is in trouble.

I do appreciate that he had very specific demands - a blue SUV with a tan interior. And an apology. LOL.

by Anonymousreply 1503/29/2012

I had heard he was pretty much loathed in NY due to his constant injuries after signing a big contract (the MN media was surprised how negative he was perceived there the first time we played the Yankees after he joined the team). Its funny, the last two years in Minnesota he has been the most durable pitcher and pitched more than any other starter and has a reputation of being a work horse. I wonder if he just had really bad luck and was truly injured all that time, or if he grew up and developed a better work ethic.

One reason I think this story might be false is the guy is saying he had a 1.2 million dollar book offer for his story. Who is going to be that interested in a Carl Pavano tell-all. Also, he said he would stop the story if Carl bought him a SUV. He seems like he might not be working on all cylinders.

LOL--my new favorite Datalounge line!

by Anonymousreply 1703/29/2012

I am very cautious when it comes to determining who is gay and who is not. I'm not pointing fingers at every man and declaring they are gay. I believe this story is true. I believe Carl Pavano is gay. That is why I have come out so hard. From what I've heard the Facebook chat started off casually and at some time Pavano's sister asked what he wanted (for his silence).

by Anonymousreply 1803/29/2012

Let's talk about what's really important here--the blackmailer was much hotter than Pavano in high school!

He blackmailed the guy 'cause he thought he'd get away with it. Imagine how many blackmailers do get away with it. You just don't hear about them.

There's a phrase for blackmailers that get caught..."Real small time."

by Anonymousreply 2503/29/2012

He wasn't blackmailing Pavano. He sent a letter to the family saying he was writing a book about his 3 year affair in high school with Pavano. He says the sister contacted him pissed off. He called her a racist homophobe. He claims he wrote he wanted a rover and money as a joke. Something said on facebook can't be taken seriously but Pavano's sister called the police. There's no mention in the story he even contacted Pavano, just had long incoherent rants on facebook.

When it comes to guys, if they have sex with other guys they are not bi-sexual. They are gay honey. Remember that. They just say they're bisexual and use beards so they can have careers and be accepted by mainstream society.

If true, blackmail is a really, really shitty thing.

Guy may have had a relationship but what a dick.

by Anonymousreply 3003/30/2012

what a fucking scumbag - and what will this supposed need for closure accomplish? closure is a term stupid people use to justify bad behavior

he's a deviant creep.

This is most likely what happened: a drunk, horny teenager got a blowjob from a guy - now years later this douche uses it to threaten because his life didn't turn out as well

I hope they charge him and arrest him

best thing Pavano can do is to acknowledge knowing this loser but to claim it was an unrequited attraction

by Anonymousreply 3103/30/2012

Pavano was asked about it this morning by one of the Twins beat writers. His official response is no commment (legal issues) and there won't be a comment anytime soon. I don't think the Minneapolis media will push the issue. I think locally, the vibe is people are sympathetic to Pavano, and the guy is scum regardless of what their relationship was in high school. Of course with sports, you are going to get a few homophobic comments

Reading the FB posts, I thought:

1. Something really did happen between the two;

2. He was really trying to blackmail; and

3. He enjoys less than sound mental health.

If he claimed a $1.2M book deal, why didn't the sister see him for what he was or at least consult with her brother before she made a matter of it by calling the police? Pavano or his lawyer would have scoffed at the idea of a lucrative book deal and told the idiot to go ahead and get it published.

If I win the mega millions, I'll know how Carl Pavano feels.

Making a lot of money doing nothing.

by Anonymousreply 3803/30/2012

I wonder if Pavano was consulted before the sister called the police.

If not, this seems more a passive aggressive way to get back at a richer, more successful sibling than shutting down an extortionist.

Lots of boys in their teens have sex with other boys but grow up straight. It doesn't make them bisexual. Carl Pavano is currently married.

by Anonymousreply 4203/30/2012

Very true, R42.

Though many gay teens have sex with boys and then grow up and get married and live a straight life for societal acceptance.

Don't know which -- if either -- is the case here.

But it does happen.

by Anonymousreply 4303/30/2012

It looks like Pavano's sister wants to get even with this jerk because he told her she was fat all through their school years.

by Anonymousreply 4403/30/2012

Even if the story is true, that was a long time ago. So, big deal, he MIGHT have been bicurious in his youth. He grew up, married a nice woman, and had kid(s). Big deal. His past is irrelevant to now.

Carl is probably lucky that he is now a Twin and not still with the Yankees and having to deal with the NY media. The Minneapolis sports radio taling heads covered it for about five minutes, and basically said the classmate was scum regardless of what happened back in high school.

Carl also handled the situation well, in that the next day he commmented that he had no comment and could not comment anytime soon due to the legal process, but would be available otherwise. They said he seemed unconcerned and was hanging out in the locker room with teammates as if it was any other day.

by Anonymousreply 5904/03/2012

r57, even if the allegations are true, what would make you think that? Many, many males who have had same-sex experiences never performed oral sex on another dude, because that would be "gay." Receiving is another thing....

by Anonymousreply 6004/05/2012

About ten years ago I met a Major League player for Atlanta on I didn't believe he was who said he was at the time, but we met up a few times and he was him. His story was he was married and had two boys - well actually his wife had just divorced him and was seeing another guy on his team. She was into ball players. He was religious and she had chased him to get married when he was drafted or however he got recruited to the team. He married her knowing he was gay - he said it as a stupid mistake. Somehow they managed to to have sex with her enough times to have two kids (that he adored). He got injured and was probably leaving the team when I met him. He was so sweet and really innocent, he hadn't been with a guy since HS until me. One sunday we just got up and say around drinking coffee and reading the newspaper - he said it was the most beautiful day of his life, a day he had always dreamed of - just to do that - spend a normal sunday morning with a lover like couples just do.

He owned his house and had a lot of money put away and his kids were there so he didn't want to move. I couldn't move either so it just didn't work out. I also didn't want to be a second dad to his kids (he really wanted that) and the sex wasn't the great for me. I could see huge problems with his ex-wife, and my ball player was very naive about those complications. He had this dream idea about everything working out. He was beautiful, tall, sweet, sincere, kind, maybe I made the wrong choice. You can't go back, I don't know what happened to him.

I wrote this because he had had the HS sexual experience followed by a marriage. He is not this guy.
