Bumping this thread because I can't find a more recent one about him specifically.
For some reason I had missed this article where he says he had been sexually assaulted by a photographer. Was this discussed in another thread?

Yes, I agree, R9. He was also quite funny in that model files series or whatever it was called, and he seems to adore animals of all sorts, which is always a plus!
|by Anonymous||reply 10||08/01/2018|
I can barely find any discussion of what he said anywhere...nothing on fashionspot forums or even ONTD. Is it because he didn't name the photographer who assaulted him? Other male models' accusations have been more widely discussed.

Not sure what you mean by who, R12! Male model RJ King was one of 50 models interviewed by the Boston Globe earlier this year about sexual harassment and assault in the fashion industry and said he was assaulted when he was 18. The article is linked in R7 and the video where he talks about it briefly in R8.

Were RJ and Derek Blasberg ever a couple? I was never quite sure, but saw that they have been hanging out more now and it reminded me.
|by Anonymous||reply 14||02/27/2019|
R14 I don’t think so. Derek has a long term relationship. Does anyone know why Rj and Theo broke up? And it happened around the holidays 2017. They seemed to be so in love.

It's very old though, R17, haha. I did not mean to imply it was recent. I think maybe from 2011 or 2012. It's just that they recently hung out...as friends...so I wanted to see if someone knew whether they had been together in the past or always just good friends and their friends were joking.

Dear god, does Derek have a huge cock or something? Gets cute guys left and right. I have a serious crush on his bf nick. Is RJ still vague/ fluid/bi? I mean come on, you annoying little bottom. We all know what’s what.

I think his post about Chechnya made it clear he was gay, R19. At least that was my impression.
|by Anonymous||reply 20||02/27/2019|
R20 eh idk I see guys using only the hashtag gay on Instagram and then I find out they are bi.....they always infer, or outright claim to be gay, until they for whatever reason (normally to shame gay men for *gasp* assuming hey are just gay). Actually seen it a few times with some of the insta hoes I used to follow. Some think gay is an umbrella term.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||02/27/2019|
Possible, R21, but so far he has shown no sign of being interested in women but I guess only time will tell.
Here is the post I meant anyway
|by Anonymous||reply 22||02/27/2019|
R22 all the guys I am talking about are probably exclusively gay if they were to be analysed. But the point is that they don’t see themselves as being such, even when they use the gay label.....it’s all so odd. All love the gay lifestyle and never date women, but he pissy when someone ‘assumes’ they are gay.
Anyway, this is a tangent. Carry on discussing RJ. His career really has stalled hasn’t it?
|by Anonymous||reply 23||02/27/2019|
I was listening to a radio interview he did with his sister a while back and he was talking about thinking about what to do after modelling. Meghan kept interrupting him though...sibling dynamics I guess, haha. Meghan said they both wanted to get into TV hosting type work and he said he gets nervous being on camera but gets a high from it too. He just mainly wants to be his own boss. I am curious what he will do once he is completely done with modeling.
On another note completely, I still want to know who the photographer was who assaulted him, but it doesn't look like he will say. I think this photo was from the day he discussed it publicly, so Meghan is generally supportive, but was just a bit too excited in the interview I mentioned, haha.
Perhaps randomly, it looks like he and Theo broke up shortly before that, but I could be wrong.
|by Anonymous||reply 24||02/27/2019|
R21 I've also seen it, but I believe that RJ has only been with men lately, I wouldn't be surprised if he date a woman.

This is from the lady that was catfished with his photos and was on the TV show Catfish. I never bought this bi/fluid thing, he probably said that to appear cooler or something.
|by Anonymous||reply 26||02/27/2019|
Yeah, maybe it was just a gradual coming out, R26. I remember a make-up artist or hairstylist who seemed to know him well describing him as gay as well.
There is this old photo but I think it's a friend and it looks like she is kissing his chin, haha.

I looked Theo up and would say he is basically the definition of ugly/hot. He's got a great body and BDF. If he's masculine and deep-voiced, it's a wrap. I'd let him impregnate me.

I haven't seen Theo speak before but he doesn't strike me as particularly masculine. It's just that bad combination of short, square-faced, and Italian that I particularly hate about him. To each their own I suppose.

Why has RJ's career tanked?
He's still young, good looking, no weight or hair-loss issues.
It's not that he queened out too much, because Miles McMillan — who looks like a troll in comparison — is getting plenty of work.
Did he suck the wrong dick?
|by Anonymous||reply 40||04/27/2019|
Did the drop in his bookings coincide with his revelation that he was sexually assaulted by a photographer? I am probably reaching with that, but I am still curious as to who he was and if he is someone with current influence.

Thea has been back in New York this past March. Not sure if it’s permanent. His friend Noah commented something about a “bae” in one of his recent photos.
Miles have better connections in the fashion world than Rj. He’s besties with some of the popular photographers/ models.

It's very possible they are just there as a group, as I mentioned, since Theo posted about another guy who was with him at Coachella as well. And I think Simon Huck might be there too.
Anyway, I just hope he is happy. He always comes across as such a sweetheart.
|by Anonymous||reply 45||04/27/2019|
Actually I am not sure it's the same guy from Coachella, but anyway, my point is that even though I was the one who first mentioned it, I am not quite sure yet, haha! Maybe the rest of this holiday will make things clearer!

I don't think he stopped working, R47, just less and mostly magazines, not shows now. He said a while back he would like to be show host or something like that. And yup, like R48 said, nothing confirmed since he broke up with his last bf Theo.
To correct what I said in R45, I don't think Simon Huck is there after all. I am curious who else is there with RJ, Theo and the third guy. I'd assume there is a fourth at least.
