Professional boxer Yusaf Mack originally claimed that he was drugged after a video surface of him participating in gay porn. Now reports are saying that the boxer lied and is now claiming to be bisexual. Check out the story below.
Yusaf Mack’s claims of being drugged during the filming of a gay porn video were apparently a lie.
Media sources report the Philly boxer has come clean about what his state of mind on the day of the shoot via a statement released on Monday (Nov. 2).
According to Mack, he was “was completely aware and fully conscious during the film.” In addition, the athlete capped the statement off with admitting that he is bisexual while apologizing to his fans, friends, his 10 kids and ex-fiancée for deceiving them.
“This is an issued public apology from my heart. I want to address a few situations with the first being the false claims I made about being drugged during the Dog Pound adult film,” Mack said in the statement.
“I have never spoke negatively about the company that produced the film although the claim to have been given a drug by someone during set was a lie. I was completely aware and fully conscious during the film. I did participate in the adult film because at the time I needed money but also because I am a bisexual man. Meaning I enjoy safely being intimate with whomever I choose.”
As the statement continued, Mack also expressed his hope that coming out will serve as an inspiration for other bisexual men and women who are experiencing “similar situations.”
“There are other men and women that are set up in the similar situations and I just hope I can be inspiration to be just be you,” he wrote.” The extreme taboo and harsh criticism of living a same-sex lifestyle, especially as an African- American male, makes it hard to be completely honest and comfortable within yourself.”
Mack’s statement comes a week after the 28-year-old athlete generated headlines after claiming he was drugged when he was on the set of a gay X-rated video. According to Mack, he awoke later on a train with $4,500 stuffed in his pocket and ultimately learned he was in the video when took him aside and told him about it.
Since news surfaced about Mack’s ordeal, the production company behind the film, Dawg Pound USA, released a statement denying the boxer’s accusations and threatening to sue him for slander.
