“I’ve laid myself bare for people to respond to that and the response has been amazing.”
Thorpe is currently the cover star of GQ magazine, and was questioned about the romance at an event for the mag. He quickly shut down the rumour mill, telling reporters, “It’s not true. I’m not seeing anyone.”
Although Thorpe did admit Martin had been a major source of support when he came out in a TV interview earlier in the year.
“We’re mates, he is a really good guy," he told the media. "I speak to him but that is about it.”
Thorpe also reflected on how his life has changed since coming out in July: "I’m no different, it’s just that the context of how honest I’ve been with people has changed. I’ve laid myself bare for people to respond to that and the response has been amazing."
