British Singer’s Lawyers Prevented Outing

microphone 4[Daily Mirror] Which British male singer is breathing a massive sigh of relief after his lawyers intervened to prevent a book from being published, outing him?

Blogger Jaiden Michael’s tome, Celebrity2013, was published yesterday via Amazon Kindle, but removed two hours later due to “libel content.” It made claims about the singer’s quirky peccadilloes, and, once seen by the star’s legal team, was promptly removed online. I’m told, “Jaiden was ordered to re-write the chapter, minus his claims, and the book is now back on sale.”

    Robbie Williams?

  • bumblebea63

    I’m going with Harry Styles on this one.

  • ravenglass


    Taylor Swift outed him when she agreed to date him.

  • destini uk

    Robbie Williams?

  • Fan

    Harry Styles?

  • mariaj

    Robbie Williams? To me, he is ” at least” bisexual.

  • lorelaigilmore

    Harry Styles. The book’s disclaimer states that “no homosexual boyband members locked in the closet were harmed during the making of this book.”

    • DannyM

      I feel like Harry wouldn’t care as much about being outed as his agents etc would though.

    • ECR

      “no homosexual boyband members locked in the closet were harmed during the making of this book.”
      I’m laughing so hard

  • Elesdee

    From briefly reading his blog, he seems to dislike Max from the Wanted, referring to him as “bent as a candy cane”. In which case, I nominate Max.

  • whitesox23

    Harry Styles??? Louis Tomlinson??? Someone from the Wanted??? I really don’t know many British Singers….

  • sabrina325

    Olly Murs?

  • CanaryCry


    Sir Cliff Richard?

  • sabrina325

    Or someone from Take That?

  • Mtlmeee

    Costadinos Contostavlos (Dappy)

  • stolidog

    Morrisey or Robbie Williams. (or a whole slew of others….)

  • srw27

    Google says he talks about boybands “The Risk” & “The Mend” so someone from there?

  • fishfish123

    Harry Styles

  • YoGo8c

    Hmm, well could be any British male singer. Or maybe ‘sigh of relief’ – Comic Relief? could be a clue.

    A few obvious names will be shouted out for this but really there aren’t that many clues to go on here. Clearly all the big male names should be there if it’s about 2013 celebs: One Direction, The Wanted, Bruno Mars, Olly Murs, Union J, there are scores of them.

    • Totally_Sam

      I honestly think that if anybody from One Direction were to come out, it would be Louis AND Harry. Also, Bruno !are isn’t British. Third, Jaymi from Union J is already openly gay (and engaged).

  • YoGo8c

    Add to that JLS.

  • YoGo8c

    It might be unrelated but someone posted about Jaiden’s book on his Twitter page asking him for a brew (brit slag: tea) and he answered: ‘Green tea for me’.

    Could be totally unrelated but if it were to be a clue there is Professor Green, who’s a British singer-songwriter/rapper.

  • bootsym


  • prospero

    Singer: Max George from The Wanted

  • annla

    I know he is married with a kid but there has always been rumors about Robbe Williams.

  • graysonsmama

    According to his intro (you can “look inside” on Amazon), I think I will go with a One Directioner. He mentions Harry Styles an awful lot in the opening, but when he addresses the cease and desist, it seems to point more towards Zayn Malik.

    • Mtlmeee

      i guess you don’t have a teenage daughter. Everyone in the “fandom” knows that Zayn is definitely not gay. He is the biggest man slut when he is on tour. My daughter knows first hand of his antics…

    • Kyiaj

      Zayn Malik is NOT gay…He had to put a ring on it to make up for all the one night stands he has had in the last tour with female fans and groupies.

  • JenJenJen

    Conor Maynard? He had a song called “Breathe” and as he is supposed to be the British Justin Bieber, I can see why they would try to hide his sexuality.

    Also Harry Styles perhaps?

  • cupcakes

    Ed Sheeran? Heard some stories about him.

  • mrose

    sorry to disappoint I don’t think its who you think it is. This blogger has been saying things like this about the guy from the Wanted for awhile now

  • hellosunshine

    Robbie Williams?

  • sugarspice

    Quick stab at Harry Styles or Max George. Couldn’t give a stuff about Max but do care about I mean his happiness. Coming out should be something an individual does when their ready not when other people decide to do it for them!

  • MikeInSanJose

    George Michael…

  • Visha

    I’m going to go with Robbie Williams here although its not that shocking really considering everyone has always thought he is gay

  • Booboo1068

    I’ll guess the obvious: Robbie Williams. Same peccadilloes (minor indiscretions etc) as George Michael?

  • Ask Me, I'm Alice

    I’m assuming its either half of Larry because its obvious neither of them are completely strait, but onto a bigger question: does anyone know how to find the first copy of the book? I assume *someone* had to download it before it was “corrected.”

  • katekatebobate

    Anyone form 1D

  • MarkyMark

    Cliff Richards?

  • Deusex

    Bent to a degree, Louis & Harry, Mick Jagger & David Bowie, Garry Barlow, Robbie Williams. Possibly Robbie, as big enough to have a legal team.

    Or for the rough trade fantasy Max George who would ride hard, then knock your lights out if you ever mentioned anything to anyone, le swoon.

  • richyrich

    Harry Styles!

  • jubjubalicious

    Singer: Harry Styles

  • yeahidontknow

    harry styles

  • RuHa

    Lord, this isn’t about Harry is it? Not that he is the only male Brit singer, but he does seem to be wearing the bulls eye tee shirt lately. I hope after the next tour he just comes out and gets it done. That’ll cut down on the blinds. Now what about those peccadilloes?

  • LeahLynn28

    Oh,”massive sigh of relief” has to be a clue,right?
    “Massive” reminds of one of Muse’s song “Supermassive black hole”.
    I may be wrong,but he could be Matt Bellamy.

  • phippskat

    Harry Styles?

    another 1D post?!

  • 3snaps

    Guessing Harry Styles since he is the subject of oh so many blinds. I don’t listen to his music and I don’t care if he is gay or not but sheesh this must be terribly exhausting/draining remaining in the closet in this day and age. If I were any of these closeted clebs I would just say F it and be me for all the world to see.

  • jubjubalicious

    Max George from the Wanted

  • Mtlmeee

    NOT anyone from The Wanted unless they are bisexual…

  • jezzadezza

    I’m guessing Harry Styles…

  • Bamadex

    Amazon has the ability to delete books from yout

    • Bamadex

      Oops. That’s “… from your Kindle.” So it’s unlikely any Kindle owners have a copy of the original text.

      Re: The Wanted, they’ve made some gay-related jabs at 1D, which might lead you to believe they have nothing to hide. Still, it’s hard to imagine they’re all straight.

      BTW, Max dated LiLo for a while, or was screwing her, or she was stalking him…depending on what version you believe.

  • FantasyOverture

    Harry Styles

  • ItzNyssa

    So I did a little research and read some of his blog. He seems convinced that Max George is gay so I’m going to go with him….

  • polarice

    Harry styles.
    “Massive” “sigh of RELIEF” “quirky”

  • ClosetOrganizer

    Harry Styles, Max George, or Nathan Sykes if it’s the ‘under-28′ set. ‘Over-28′ would be Robbie Williams or Olly Murs.

  • RunwayGirl

    I love blind gossip. This ones not about Harry I think its Max

    • YoGo8c

      Well this would actually tie in with BG’s item about Zippy if one of the conquests was Max. He has a ‘hot model girlfriend’ as well, always a suspicious thing, lol!

  • tiana.h

    I think its some from the Wanted
    but i also go a feeling that it may be one of the 1D Lads
    or I could be complete of cause it may be some one a lot older.

    Just my opinion I don’t know,.

  • kandeestyles19

    I don’t thuink it’s about Harry Styles…wouldn’t he and Louis want to come out? Mu guess is Max George

  • lizt

    I don’t think it’s the Wanted. Rumour has it that they’re about to be dumped by their record company/management, so I can’t imagine anyone bothering to spend money on legal fees. It sounds to me more like a solo singer: I’d guess Olly Murs who never seems to be pictured with any sort of partner , male or female. No-one’s that squeaky clean! I reckon he’s not prepared to go down the fake PR girlfriend route, so has agreed to keep a low profile.

  • harry styles or louis tomlinson for sure. Clue is possibly the “massive sigh of relief”. whenever One Direction wins an award they say “massive thanks to our fans”.

  • tarap

    Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran lol my high school crush

  • merryn-xx

    Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Olly Murs, anyone from JLS

  • lottie

    harry styles? he’s often described as “quirky”, one direction are known for their “massive” thank you’s and his lawyers work hard to keep him in the closet…

  • nicofs

    Man, people are thirsty for anything remotely related to Harry Styles and homosexuality. Don’t think it’s about him.

    It’s a singer – seems like a ‘singular’ performer here. I’m going with Olly Murs. The use of ” peccadilloes” and having the double LL here kind of hints at his name. Also, that image of the microphone is kind of that ‘old school’ brat pack time that Olly’s style tends to channel.

    Also, filing for ‘libel’ content means that the content is false and damaging to their reputation. Everyone is so convinced Harry Styles is gay so doubtful his lawyers could sue for libel.

    Very vague though. Not many obvious hints here for me.

    • jezzadezza

      I don’t think it’s Olly.

      And just because a lot of people are convinced Harry is gay doesn’t mean his lawyers couldn’t sue for libel. It’s show business. Entertainment lawyers threaten and sue in order to cover things up all the time and often it’s to protect the celebrity’s private life and reputation, whether or not the said content is actually true or false in reality. Also, this singer’s legal team just threatened Jaiden. They likely didn’t have to actually prove anything. And they know a threat is enough, as it often is in a situation like this. Especially when dealing with a gossip blogger like Michael. For him, a threat from a big legal team is enough to rewrite something about a certain celeb rather than dealing with a lawsuit. I’m just saying.

      You’re right though, this one is quite vague.

  • BoredPerson123

    Singer: Louis Tomlinson (One Direction) OR Max George (The Wanted)

    Louis has been the subject of “homosexual rumours/controversy” ever since One Direction were formed. Also, during one of their Twitter arguments, Louis shot back at Max, calling him “Chlamydia boy”.

    I think that’s enough to infer from. Plus “relief” is probably from “Comic Relief”, and both bands have participated in Comic Relief before, so. \(^_^)/

  • ClosetOrganizer

    nicofs actually raises a good point. I’m changing/narrowing my guess to Olly Murs, especially since he, like One Direction, is managed by Modest! Management–who seems to have a track record with “closet cases”.

  • biguisan

    This couldn’t be Harry because I think Harry’s been wanting to come out for a long time now… I’m gonna go with Robbie Williams.

  • nwilts1678

    The blurb in the book says the singers FAT girlfriend. Surely that has to be a big clue? Robbies wife is thin. Harry currently dateing the skinny kardashian. Can I pop out Gary Barlow? surely he must have some vice?

  • blogger89

    It’s Max George from The Wanted Jaiden has been at this since last year.

  • elle23

    It’s say a member from a boy and and British also they’re not saying he’s gay, so could be bi-sexual. My guess is Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams basically anyone from Take That.

  • elle23

    Oh it’s says singer ignore the boyband remark

  • chicagourl

    Either Harry Styles or Louis Tomlinson, Harry was openly Bi in school and had a boyfriend(I believe I heard it was Will who was in White Eskmo with him)

  • FlyingHigh

    My “guess” is JB from JLS.
