“I am capable of loving both sexes, and I have done both,” says Al Reynolds, the ex husband of famed attorney Star Jones. He made this revelation in an exclusive interview with Radar Online. In an interview that starts, “Ever since I have been in the public eye, people have been speculating on my sexuality. And ‘speculating’ is a kind word for how it actually played out. With anger and disdain, people have been calling me out as gay, closeted, a sham and even nastier; much nastier,” Reynolds puts his sexual preferences on blast.
The Wall Street executive adds, “Today … I accept myself as a bisexual man.”
Reynolds and Jones have been divorced for eight years.
Reynold’s goes on to say:
I have learned that sexual orientation is not binary, at least for me. I am capable of loving both sexes, and I have done both. My relationships, all of them, have been honest and based on my attraction to the other person. When I am in love I don’t equivocate, nor do I waver.
I tell this story to both encourage my personal path, as well as give some small measure of hope to others that no matter your beginnings, no matter the obstacles, there is nothing so fulfilling and Godlike as living the life that was destined.
Jones, 55, is now engaged to Ricardo Lugo, an Illinois assistant state’s attorney. They started dating in the summer of 2016 and went public with their romance that same year, at the 8th Annual Children’s Museum of the East End Family Affair in Bridgehampton, New York.
