Tom Daley, 19, is dating Dustin Lance Black, the 39-year-old writer who won an Academy Award for his screenplay for Milk, reports E! News. Olympic diver Tom Daley surprised fans yesterday when he came out and told the world via YouTube that he was dating a man. Back in October, Tom and Dustin were spotted together for the first time, grabbing a snack at The Coffee Bean in Hollywood.
In Tom’s coming out video he said: ‘In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great. And that someone is a guy. It did take me by surprise a little bit. It was always in the back of my head that something like that could happen, but it wasn’t until spring this year that something just clicked.
It felt right and I thought, ‘OK,’ and my whole world changed there and then. Of course, I still fancy girls, but right now I’m dating a guy and I couldn’t be happier.’ Dustin is currently in LA and will be in the UK this spring to direct Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. Tom is now in London.

UPDATE: Tom and Dustin are on the cover of The Sun!
