Colton Underwood’s confession
He spoke deeply personal matters in a recent interview with Robin Roberts.
“I have run from myself for a long time. I’ve hated myself for a long time,” Colton Underwood told Roberts in a pre-taped chat.
“And I’m gay. I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it. And the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know,” he said.
Mr. Underwood said he went through bad and dark times. He felt that he would rather die than confess he was gay.
“There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and did not think I was gonna wake up. I did not have the intentions of waking up. And I did,” he said.
The former football player also noted that moment and other suicidal thoughts let him take control of his life.
According to Roberts, Underwood was happy after he came out. She said he was emotional in a “good, happy, healthy way”. She mentioned that was the happiest and healthiest he has ever been.
