Adam Lambert confirmed what many had suspected when he told the South Florida Gay News that he and his boyfriend have been split for the past couple of months. Even though they have supposedly been together for the past two years, this to me has always been kind of shaky. I almost felt like he was using his Finnish boyfriend as a beard. Not so he could date a woman, but so he could hide who he was really seeing. I would even venture to say that for much of the time that he was “with” his Finnish boyfriend, he was actually with someone else. That relationship crashed and burned hard late last year when the other guy in that relationship would not come out and would not stand up to people in his life who told him he needed to stay in the closet. With that relationship over, there was no need to stay with the Finn and with the Finn wanting to go public with who he is dating, now was the time to announce it.
