Jason Collins Had a Fiancée, Carolyn Moos

“I had no idea he was gay.” They were together eight years.

If hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, then what do you do when you find out your fiancé is actually gay? It looks like Carolyn Moos might find out. Moos, a former WNBA player, was engaged to Jason Collins, who came out as gay Monday. Moos and Collins, both 34, broke up in 2009, and she said Collins came out to her last weekend—and told her that was the real reason they had broken up. “It’s very emotional for me as a woman to have invested eight years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him,” Moos told TMZ. Adding that this is “very hard for me to understand,” Moos said she wants “Jason to be happy for a lifetime and stay true to who he really is.”
