NFL star Kerry Rhodes has denied being gay after Mediatakeout posted photos of him with his arm around a male friend.  The site also posted photos of Kerry holding his friend in his arms.

In a statement to TMZ, Kerry said, “Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation. I am not gay.”  He went on to say, “The shots were taken during a past vacation in a casual environment with my entire business team.”

Kerry then gave support for professional athletes coming out the closet, saying, “I know a lot of people are recently talking about athletes struggling to come out to their fans right now, and I support them, as well as wish those individuals comfort.”
