I am not a Gay, it’s a misunderstanding: James Faulkner!
Out of favour Australia all-rounder, James Faulkner took to Instagram on his 29th birthday shared a picture alongside his mother and a man he described as his 'boyfriend'. The original picture saw him sitting, at a restaurant, with mother Roslyn Carol Faulkner and Rob Jubb. Faulkner captioned, “Birthday dinner with the boyfriend @robjubbsta and my mother @roslyn_carol_faulkner #togetherfor5years,”
Later his followers, including former cricketers Glenn Maxwell and Shaun Tait, responded by praising his "great courage".
However, Faulkner clarified that he was only good friends with Jubb and it was five years of being housemates. He wrote, “There seems to be a misunderstanding about my post from last night, I am not gay, however, it has been fantastic to see the support from and for the LBGT community. Let’s never forget love is love, however, @robjubbsta is just a great friend. Last night marked five years of being housemates! Good on everyone for being so supportive.”
Earlier this month, New Zealand women cricketer Hayley Jensen tied the knot with former Melbourne Stars teammate Nicola Hancock.
