Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gerard Pique Gay Lovers? Final Update. Apparently, Gerard gave an answer back in 2015 on what the two footballers were doing in the most intimate football photo seen around the world.
Via Four Four Two magazine: “I’d just released my autobiography and he came over to say ‘well done’. I’m a tactile person, very caring, and the photographer took the shot. He was inside the training ground, so it couldn’t have been someone from a gossip magazine. I couldn’t believe it turned into this massive thing. We were ahead of Real Madrid with only a few games to go, so the press would jump on anything to destabilise us. We still won the league, though.”
So there you go, fellow Famewatchers, it’s just a case of a caring friend congratulating another friend for their achievement.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gerard Pique Gay Lovers? (7 May 2010). Famewatchers, meet Barcelona football stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gerard Pique. This picture of the two pro footballers, described by our friend Deena as a photo “that borders on then romantic”, was snapped recently and is rocking the football world. Not unexpectedly, the question that some people are asking goes like this: “Hmm, are they doing it?”
Our answer: We don’t know. But we are awed by the intimacy captured in the picture. Who says men cannot be intimate with each other, but not necessarily se*ual, these days.
For those not very familiar with the two, here’s some of their info courtesy of wikipedia:
Zlatan Ibrahimović: is a Swedish footballer who currently plays as a striker for Barcelona and the Swedish national team. He is of Bosnian and Croatian parentage. As of February 2009, Ibrahimović, along with Kaká, were the highest salaried football players in the world with an annual pay of €9 million.
Gerard Piqué: is a Spanish footballer, currently playing as a centre back for Barcelona. Piqué was raised in a wealthy Catalan family. His father is a lawyer, and his mother is the director of a medical institute. His grandfather, Amador Bernabeu, is the former vice-president of FC Barcelona.
UPDATE: A reporter asks Ibrahimovic about this controversial photo and what did he say? He invited the reporter and his sister to his home and there he will prove that he is not gay. Says he, “Come to my house and you’ll see If I’m gay…. And bring your sister.”
Well, that really does not answer the question does it? What if they do go to his house and find him …. knitting a sweater or something.
But then again, we also wouldn’t know how to deal with the controversy if we were placed in his shoes. Any suggestions on how Ibrahimovic and Pique should have responded (or should respond) to the “are you gay lovers” question?
