Straight TV star ensnared in gay sex scandal says he doesn’t like guys, he’s just “very modern”

Antonio Tejado is a reality TV star from Spain who is currently fielding a gay sex scandal.

It all started after Tejado, who is perhaps best known for appearing on the Spanish version of Survivor, was spotted at the Bagdad Room, a popular gentlemen’s club in Barcelona, where he purportedly engaged in a public sex act… possibly with another man.

Shortly after the rumors began swirling, a man came forward to say he wasn’t the least bit surprised by the story since he himself had engaged in a sexual encounter with Tejado in the past.

Not just that, but he claimed to have video of their rendezvous, which happened in the backseat of a taxi.

“It happened five or six years ago”, the man told the Spanish tabloid TV program Sálvame (“Save Me”) in an interview. “There’s a video in the taxi from us, it’s true.”

“What I can say?” the man added. “What I experienced was not his first time, believe me.”

Well, this week, Tejado hit the media circuit to deny the claims. Sort of.

He appeared on Sálvame to say the story was “totally false”, but he wouldn’t elaborate too much more beyond that. Things got heated pretty quickly and he soon erupted into anger.

“I do not have to say anything,” he raged. “I’m not going to tell you whether it’s true or not that I’ve had sexual experiences with men!”

30-year-old Tejado continued, “I am heterosexual. If someone wants to shove me out of a closet, I do not care!”

He went on to say he “categorically denies” having sex with a dude in the back of a taxi and that he’s now considering legal action against the guy.

“I do not have to explain my private life,” Tejado said, “and it’s not because I’m afraid to admit it. I’m very modern!”

To help drive the point home, Tejado took to Instagram to post a photo of himself engaged in a passionate lip lock with his girlfriend in a pool along with the caption: “Cada minuto puede ser una epopeya” which translates to “Every minute can be epic.”
