Sydney - Singer Ricky Martin memorably came out as a gay man back in 2010.
However, the star has admitted he used to struggle with his sexuality and even bullied gay men whilst growing up in Puerto Rico.
“I look back now and realise I would bully people who I knew were gay,” Martin tells the September/October edition of GQ Australia.
“I had internalised homophobia. To realise that was confronting to me. I wanted to get away from that.”
Martin, who got his start with the boy band Menudo nearly three decades ago, tells the magazine that becoming a father to twin boys Matteo and Valentino, whom he is raising with partner Carlos Gonzalez Abells, changed his view on life.
“I didn’t want them (his twin sons) growing up in a house of lies… or thinking that there was something wrong with being gay.”
