Kerry Rhodes: I Am Not Gay!

According to various reports, four gay NFL players will soon come out of the closet.

But veteran free safety Kerry Rhodes wants to make it clear: he will not be one of them.

Pictures of Rhodes surfaced this week on Media Take Out in which the player's arms are around a man in a tank top, but Rhodes tells TMZ the shots are harmless.

"Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation," Rhodes says in a statement. "I am not gay."

The free agent adds that the pics were snapped during a "casual" vacation with his "entire business team."

Rhodes does say he agrees with Magic Johnson overall, however: he's all for those athletes who actually are homosexual:

"I know a lot of people are recently talking about athletes struggling to come out to their fans right now, and I support them, as well as wish those individuals comfort."

Rhodes out to prove he's not gay?

Is NFL free agent Kerry Rhodes trying to prove he's not gay to get a new job?

Rhodes, an eight-year veteran defensive back who has been the subject of gossip site rumors all offseason, tweeted an eyebrow-raising holding-hands picture from his Facebook account on Tuesday, with the caption "No caption. just real."

It's seemingly a subtle denial of the gay rumors — much, much more subtle than what the gossip sites reported he texted to several former teammates: that he could be the father of Kim Kardashian's baby.

“Man this could be my baby!! I was f—ing her the same time as K.West was lol!!!” Bossip claims Rhodes texted ex-teammates this week. Rhodes has had his name in the news all offseason after a man claiming to be his former personal assistant told gossip sites the two had been lovers and released photos of them together. Rhodes denied he was gay to TMZ in April, but his alleged ex, Russell "Hollywood" Simpson, has continued to go public with claims and photos, including one of Rhodes planting a kiss on him and one of the two lying on a bed, plus one in which they look like the "Black Brokeback Mountain," Simpson says.

Rhodes, 30, became something of a media darling during five years with the New York Jets and was an All-Pro in 2006. He played in Arizona for the past three seasons and had 67 tackles and four interceptions last year. He was released in March.

NBA veteran Jason Collins made national headlines in April when he came out. Collins, 34, will be a free agent this offseason. Neither the NBA, NFL, NHL nor MLB has ever had an active player who publicly acknowledged being gay.

Former NFL player Kwame Harris also made headlines earlier this year when he revealed he was gay after a publicized altercation with an ex-boyfriend. The news sparked discussions of how many locker rooms have had gay players, how aware of them teammates were, and how accepting today's players would be.

Last month MLS player Robbie Rogers became the first openly gay active player in US men's pro sports when he suited up for the LA Galaxy. Rogers had come out in February after briefly retiring.

I bet he is trying to get signed. There was that big thread about him not getting signed, so he's probably trying to drive home the point to skeptical owners/general managers of NFL teams. By declaring "I'm not gay" he's basically telling them "Look, I know some of you have your doubts, and even if I am, there will be no more slip ups, no more Mantasia pics, no more queeny assistants. I will project heterosexuality."

Not that he necessarily would have happily come out even if he were signed to a solid contract, but this to me seems like he's angling for work and letting potential employers know there won't be any "problems." sad.

I agree with the above poster who said that Kerry is basically making a promise to not get involved with anymore messy queens. It's the NFL, you've got to stay down low or at least have a masculine boyfriend. Football fans will not accept a queeny couple in the NFL.

There is too much money involved, we are talking billions, and no one needs that kind of publicity.

Same with Rogers, he should have teamed up with another masculine dude but instead he paired with a sappy, passive aggressive, "Belieber" who posts his every teardrop on Facebook.

Sorry R33, but if one chooses to go into a profession ruled by the Good Ol' Boys and gambling, then I think one should understand that they are not going to change that business culture.

Whoever thinks that they are going to make some kind of positive gay statement in the NFL is delusional.

No gay person will be making any societal impact in the NFL. The NFL is an insular and rarified culture. There will be no 'gay pride movements' in the NFL. And if the players don't like it, they can be replaced.

They NFL is played by hetero thugs, for the most part. Half of the players smoke weed, most if not all take HGH. It is a culture of bullying.

No gay person expects special treatment in the NFL. If they did, they are stupid.

It is a billion dollar business that involves GAMBLING, and no one cares about social causes while gambling.

The NFL is America's leading source of entertainment, and there is no one personality, including Peyton Manning, who can influence, in any way, the whole league.

All of Las Vegas depends on NFL money. Casino jobs depend on NFL money. Lives depend on NFL money.

The NFL receives over six billion dollars each season from television networks. The NFL is becoming an international interest as well.

Nothing, will be allowed to interfere with this cash cow. Too many people depend on the NFL to feed their children.

The highest revenue in the casinos is during the NFL season, which is predicated upon middle America flocking to Las Vegas to bet on games.

No one player will be allowed to change the image of the NFL being "America's wholesome family entertainment" because that would cost the NFL, Las Vegas, and its investors BILLIONS of dollars.

After a season away from the NFL, during which his former assistant alleged the two were in a relationship, Kerry Rhodes says he believes the gay rumors weren't the reason for his surprising unemployment—and he's not gay anyway.

In an interview with ESPN, Rhodes said "I don't think I was blacklisted," and that he doesn't believe the NFL would allow that to happen. Instead he cites money as the reason no one gave the 31-year-old safety a tryout after Week 1. As for the photos of him and his assistant, and that assistant's claims they were a couple?

"I emphatically said no once and that's all I need to say and people who know me know that's definitely not the case," Rhodes said. "To me I'm definitely not and I can't control but people think, so I move on."

Kerry Rhodes peels off an expensive pair of aviator sunglasses as he steps out of a waiting SUV at the Andaz 5th Avenue cafe in New York, the city that drafted him nearly a decade ago. "New Yorkers like to pretend they don't care that they've read about you in the papers, but they do. They do," Rhodes says, without noticing two businessmen rubbernecking their heads in his direction. Rhodes spent five seasons with the Jets, earning All-Pro honors and the highest salary of any safety in the league before heading to Arizona. But with his time on the field likely behind him, Rhodes now lives in Los Angeles, a city without a football team, but one that openly embraces the showbiz status that earned him the nickname "Hollywood." There, he's spent the last two years producing Gone in an Instant, a documentary that chronicles the life and career of fellow athlete Antoine Walker, a three-time NBA All-Star who made headlines when he was caught writing bad checks in Vegas after losing the $110 million he had earned during his pro career. As a fellow sportsman, few seem more qualified than Rhodes to handle the player's story with the amount of class and compassion it deserves. He may be done with the NFL, but with a number of projects in the works with his production company, there are plenty in Hollywood who are happy to have the company of Kerry Rhodes.

Did you always know making films would be your career after football? I've always wanted to do film. I've had a love for acting, writing, and producing. It was something that I planned to do regardless, and then when my football career was over, I believe it was a blessing that I got to do a project like this that hits so close to home. I never set out to be a documentary filmmaker, but this opportunity is such a natural move. I met and got to know Antoine and we had a great connection right off the bat.

What made Antoine Walker the right subject for your film? I loved football, but my first love was always basketball. I've followed the it as a fan for years, so I knew who Antoine was since the beginning. I went to Louisville and he was in Kentucky, so I followed his career from there and throughout. It wasn't until later that I became familiar with the rest of his story, though. I was watching TV and saw his mug shot on the screen. People were talking about how he lost all of his money. I was shocked. $110 million? That doesn't make any sense, but I was playing football at the time, so I didn't have long to really dwell on it. Later, my business partner Anthony Holt suggested that we look into his story to potentially tell and I regained that interest all over again. I knew that the film wouldn't be compelling unless we had Antoine on our side. We started the conversation with him and he seemed open to going there, and talking about everything. We just ran with it.

How long did the film take to produce, from concept to completion? It's about a span of two years to get everything finished. We had to figure out an arc that was interesting. People are going to want to know where he is now. Where is he trying to go? The story is in full bloom now. He's cleared all of his debts, except for his casino debt, because of the laws in effect in Nevada, he can't get it off the books. He's still $700,000 in the hole. But it's not $8 million in the hole. He's moving forward with his life.

There's no doubt that some of the subjects in his story were painful for Antoine to talk about. How did you get him to be completely candid? Did you feel like he backed away from discussing certain topics? He didn't fight us on anything. He wasn't withholding from us at all. There is shame there of course. He lost a lot of money. I think he realizes now he has a story to tell that is powerful and can help people. To have someone that is that open, and isn't worried about what people are going to say about him is a true gift. The first screening we did of the film was in Boston; this is a place where he was known as a great player - an icon. It took a big man to look those people in the eye and show where he

I wonder if this situation would've turned out differently if Mantasia was as hot as Kerry. I think the gays would've supported him more in this scandal if his secret boyfriend was a conservative guy, and they happened to get outed. But we jumped right on the bandwagon more or less, when we saw that Mantasia was a queen.

To which peers are you referring? While Cooper had had not publicly announced that he was gay; he did not lead a closeted life. The peer group, with which he chooses to surround himself, was obviously well acquainted with his boyfriend. Why would Cooper or anyone else give a fuck about what random strangers think about the who they date. That is ridiculous.
