Both Richard Gasquet and Arnaud Lagardere deny gay affair

Question asked to Richard Gasquet on Friday April 20th 2007 at the Tennis Masters series event in Monte Carlo. There is a link here to the transcript and I have also posted it as well.

http://montecarlo.masters-series.com...7_gasquet6.asp

Q. This question has nothing to do with tennis. But did you seethat in the magazine Le Point there was an article about Lagardere whodenied the rumor about your relationship.
RICHARD GASQUET: I was absolutely not happy about that. This questionhas come back hundreds of times, and every time someone turns upsaying, Oh, I have evidence.It is just bullshit. Neither him nor me are homosexuals. It's absolutely obvious.

However, the French media think otherwise in fact the French magazine Le Point has been talking about Gasquet and his alleged boyfriend. Yet the alleged boyfriend Arnaud Lagardere a 40 year old French businessman denies the gay romance as well.

In Le Point in an interview on April 19th 2007 Lagardere also denies the rumours of a gay romance with Gasquet.

Lagardere says C'est dans l'hebdomadaire Le Point, daté du 19 avril 2007, qu'Arnaud Lagardère revient sur cette rumeur qu'il attribue à ses adversaires qui n'auraient pas supporté de perdre le Racing Club de France... En voici des extraits :

« Cette rumeur-là, c'est ma préférée ! Je suis à des années-lumière d'être homosexuel; quant à Richard, je n'en parle pas ! Mais là, vraiment, on atteint le degré zéro des officines (...) Tout cela est parti de mon amitié avec Bertrand Delanoë, lequel, en tant que maire de Paris, a tranché en faveur de notre projet (...) J'en ai vu d'autres et, à tout prendre, je préfère qu'on m'attribue une fausse aventure avec Richard Gasquet qu'une fausse liaison avec Sophie Marceau. Dans ce dernier cas, j'aurais plus de mal à m'en dépatouiller avec mon épouse... (rire). »

However, the French media smell blood and also in gay French circles and on French gay websites they have been talking about Gasquet being gay for a while now. I am very surprised the French media are so bold but it looks like Richard could indeed be gay. It would be great if Richard came out of the closet.

The French media are on to both Richard and his older and MARRIED gay lover. The French media have been talking about this for a while. The French publication Le Point in fact has been writing about these two.

Y'know, I don't know or care if Gasquet is or is not gay, but if he is gay, he should be allowed the dignity of coming out in his own time and in his own way, if he chooses to at all - he shouldn't be hounded out by some magazine trying to sell copiess. And if he is not gay, they should stop making this crap up.

I've read about this as well.
It is a rumour that's circulating in the sports world in the parisian media for about a month according to an article I've read but it's just that: a rumour without a shred of evidence so it's just a bit of trash, tabloid journalism IMO. :rolleyes:


Reaction of Lagardère:

The question is on the ATP website for the Monte Carlo Masters. Gasquet was interviewed he was indeed asked the question. Of course Richard denied it. My friends in France tell me its only a matter of time before the French media out him. Being gay in France is not really that big a deal anyway. The thing is Richard's boyfriend is a married man and he's got two kids. So I could see why they are trying to cover up their romance. The media don't just make up these stories there is truth to this story.

Like I said earlier, Gasquet is about a thousand times closer to breaking out of the closet than he is breaking out in tennis.

The door is open Richard, just come on out and join your buddies like Escude, tennisfancroatia, silverwhite, IvanLjubicic and all the other MTFers who have grabbed a hold of the 'Open Door' policy.

Yeah but there is such thing as libel. The French media are known for their cutting edge news. The rumours about Richard being gay have been around for a while. Its the same thing with Amelie the French press asked and pressed and sure enough she came out. The exact same thing will happen with Richard.

Clearly you haven't looked at any papers lately.

Seriously even if there was any truth it would be like them just touching hands or something. How very gay.

Even if he is gay is it NOT okay for the press to hound him till he says something. He's like 20 lay off.

From what I have been told by French friends in Paris Gasquet and Lagardere are not hiding that they are together. In fact, they frequent the French bars and clubs hand in hand I am told. So of course the French press were going to start talking about it. Mon Dieu!

Castafiore

Google is your friend. :)

I'm not sure what his link is with Gasquet but he's a business man who's created "Team Lagerdère", which is a group that specializes in doing research for the elite in the sports world.
http://www.teamlagardere.com/staff_team_lagardere.html

He's also member of the "Académie des sports"
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acad%C3%A9mie_des_Sports

So, I'm guessing that this team lagardère is where Richard knows him from?

Un SMS de Arnaud Lagardère destiné à Richard Gasquet après sa victoire contre Monfils à l'open d'Australie atterit sur le mauvais portable. En effet, sur le répertoire du portable d'Arnaud, on devine assez aisément que Richard Gasquet n'est pas listé sous son vrai nom. Quel pseudo a choisi Arnaud Lagardère pour lister son amant ? Personne ne le sait. Tout ce qu'on sait, c'est que le SMS destiné à Gasquet est parvenu à un proche de Sarkozy qui, après avoir trop ébruité la mégarde, a répondu à Arnaud Lagardère par SMS en lui indiquant qu'il avait fait erreur.

If I remember correctly she had been pressured by the media asking who was the girl in her box all the time. :shrug:


Arnaud Lagardère is the son of Jean-Luc Lagardère (who died in 2003). Both father and son are/were businessmen. Arnaud is very very rich. He is a chairman of EADS (the company that owns Airbus) and he owns several media publications (including the French tennis magazine).
He created the Team Lagardère that most of the top french players are part of.

Yes, but even so, she was pretty frankly about it. And never made a point of it ever after either. Neither did the press.

If anything, it's quite different from this tabloid blather appearing here.

PS: mind you, I wouldn't at all mind if RG and AL were indeed gay and involved in an affair. Just to make that clear. Only I don't believe for a second that this report here is in any way true.

Thanks Castafiore. I am not really interested enough in the details of this story to google it but I thought someone who knew might be able to give some brief info about the alleged ...lover :lol:.

Seems to me today's SF results did not provide enough excitement given Berdych's loss, so there had to be another juicy subject to occupy MTF until tomorrow's final.

In my opinion Richard should forget about the old geezer and finally respond to Roger's advances. How many times does Roger have to say he prefers him to all the other youngsters? :rolleyes: Wake up Richard!!!

Roger has forgotten all about him. He knows he has to play the love of his life tomorrow. Heh. :drool:

And whose fault is that? I think there is still hope though. Don't forget that Richard and Roger would have a lot more to talk about since they speak the same language. No misunderstandings and important issues lost in translation. Ahhh! :sighs: why does life have to be so complicated? :tears:

:haha::haha::haha::haha:

I for one would love for Richard to be gay :drool: (and in fact have suspected it for a while :o), but even if he was gay it's his business to decide when and if to come out. There are plenty of closeted men and women who deny their sexuality but if Richard says point-blank in a presser that he's not, it has to be respected and taken at face value.

Of course, maybe he's just with a different Arnaud. ;) :haha:

I feel bad for Richard. If he IS gay, its pretty obvious he doesn't feel comfortable going public with it. I don't think it is fair or proper for the media to pressure him about it. If he wanted people to know, he'd tell them. And if he isn't, he has to be getting pretty damned tired of the question.

Personally, I couldn't care less if the guy is gay. It doesn't make a damn bit of difference in terms of his tennis. Leave him alone.

If he's gay, he just needs to come out of the closet.

Even I would give him some respect, just for that. Amelie is my favourite player and probably it's because she had no problems saying that she was a lesbian.

Richard is a celebrity in France a very big star so he's got to learn to deal with media attention. All stars go through it Richard is no different. And of course the press are going to be interested in a story about a married businessman that's 40 years old going out with a 20 year old tennis player. When the rumour about Amelie emerged there was talk about it. The same thing is going on with Richard.

But its NOT NEEDED!!! just because it happened before doesnt make it right. The French media are in the fault here. They seem to be disgruntled because their nation sucks in terms of tennis stars, and hate that a player like Nadal is winning their slam every year, so they for some reason must take it out on their #1 player :retard:

They both deny it, and shoot back at the media for their privacy invasion. Give it a rest, media, leave the man alone.

It's not needed, but it's the media. They'll print what people will read. Any minor celebrity having an alleged affair with a man twenty years older would be newsworthy, I think. Of course, that's assuming that it's true, which it very well might not be.

I'm not saying I agree with what they are printing, I don't even know that much about the story or the magazine. I just don't think privacy invasion is some new story when it comes to the media, it's what they do (tabloids).

Neither Gasquet or Lagardere are suing for libel I believe the story to be true. Le Point is good publication they wouldn't just make up a story like this there is truth to it. There has to be gay players in the ATP top 20. Richard isn't the only gay or bisexual male at the top of men's tennis. There has to have been a lot more. So of course the press are going to jump on a story like this because on the ATP TOUR the gay male tennis players try so hard to deny the truth. Maybe if more ATP TOUR players would just come out of the closet this wouldn't be an issue anymore.

The lesbians on the WTA have been out for over 20 years no one bats an eye when Samantha Stousr came out. Its a non issue in women's tennis. And the same can be on the ATP TOUR if all the gay men just came out of the closet.

There is too much imbalance some very prominent WTA players have been out for years. We got Amelie Mauresmo the reigning Wimbledon champion, Renee Stubbs outed herself and Lisa Raymond her former partner in THE AGE newspaper last year in an article Renee wrote. Next, we got Conchita Martinez the Spanish media have been talking about her romances for years with other women. Martina Navratilova, Jana Novotna, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Billie Jean king, Jana Novotna. Lisa Raymond, Gigi Fernandez, Samantha Stousr and many more.

It's nothing new in a short-term sense, of course, but over the span of decades there has definitely been a shift. There was a time when it was more widely accepted in the media that people's private lives were their own business. Of course, there has always been a tabloid and gossip element in the media --scandal is as old as news itself -- but the line between that and "legitimate" news has become more blurred.

I think these journalists should have trouble living with themselves when they dig around in people's affairs this way, but perhaps their nicely-padded wallets make them feel better. $$$ ;)

The fire in this case is purely him attending some business functions with Lagardere. He's his sponsor so what's so surprising about that?


Exactly. I don't like it, but it's not like this is something new or unusual. I just hope Richie doesn't let it bother him, that's the main thing. If anything he should be insulted by the insinuation that he can't do better than a man twice his age. :p

First of all if Gasquet says it absolutely isn't true then I'll have to take his word over tabloid trash. I’d be surprised if he was. I thought there might have been a little something between him and Golovin a while back :shrug: However someone needs to tell him that holding hands is an absolute NO NO for straight guys so Richie needs to get his hands out of there if he wants the tabloids to stop speculating. ..;)

IF he turns out gay then for god's sake why go for a 40 year old fossil ????? :eek: And he is entitled to his privacy. The tabloids need to butt out. Tennis Agenda (JordanJames) you too should butt of Richard’s closet. He doesn’t owe you or any other gay fan anything.

Of course I don’t mind either way I’ll always like him as a player, but for his sake I hope that he is either straight or postpones a gay romance until after he has retired otherwise he’ll be hounded left right and centre by all the homophobic folk as well as the tabloids and the gay mafia as well. We’d never hear the end of it. All the jokes and innuendos. Poor Richie All he wants to do is play tennis.:sad:

Your posts are very misleading, TennisAgenda, you make it sound like Le Point published a story about Gasquet and Lagardère having an affair, that's not true.
Le Point isn't a tabloid at all and just had an interview of Arnaud Lagardère where he talks about different things and also happens to mention this rumour (which has been going around in circles and on the Internet for months now - the Internet is a terrible rumour mill). The magazine didn't make a story about Gasquet and Lagardère having an affair, they just quoted Lagardère saying in an interview the rumors about him are BS.

Actually, Lagardère himself reveals in that interview a rumour most people would probably have never heard of otherwise. He made the story public...

If Richard's gay, he should be able to come out on his own terms. I don't see how try to force out someone who could still be sexually confused or just not ready to go public with thier orientation.

This whole outing famous people buisness has been irking me for some time and now I know why. It seems like the focus is primarily on outing people for more visibility. Now don't get me wrong, more openly gay celebs would be great. For any young gay person who might feel like there's no one they can look up to seeing openly gay public figures would be comforting on a certain level.

But visibility can only go so far. If Richard came out tomorrow, would the politicians in France suddenly decide to allow gays to marry? I doubt it. And when Perez Hilton outed Lance Bass and Neil Patrick Harris, I didn't see any senators or congressmen considering getting rid of laws banning gay marriage here in the US. I think it's time for the focus to shift from wondering which famous person is gay and more focus on getting rid of these homophobic laws that are still in place.

And btw, if this rumor happened to be true, what's wrong with the man's age? Isn't 40 the new thirty these days?:p

This has always been my stance as well but I must say there is something wrong with being 40 if your other half is literally half your age :eek: I hate giving more time to this rumour but if it true we should all remember that for all his experience on the tennis court, Richard is only 20 years old. He should be hanging out with people of similar age. I don't see why he has a 40 year old friend he goes to clubbing with :o No wonder all there's all this speculation. I'm sure the other French players are seen on nights out hanging with their pals as well but you don't see the tabloids putting 2 + 2 and coming up with 10 on their ass.

Speaking of Sarko, when asked by the media which sports he practises, he cited tennis and revealed that he hits with his "friends" Gasquet and Santoro. :help:

Sarko used to be Leconte's lawyer and he even wrote a speech for him the year he was in the final at RG (but Henri lost :devil: ) and he's Leconte's son's godfather.

A few months ago, Richard said he'd vote for Sarkozy.

I cannot understand, why some people are obsessed with people's sexuality. If, a person doesn't want to reveal his/her personal life then it's not anyone's business to speculate or try to unveil their secrets. Every human being has a right to heir own private space in which no one should intrude, unless it's necessary for the public good. However, in the case of sexuality, like religion it's none of anyone's business unless the person herself/himself makes it public.

I'm not saying that openly gay famous people does nothing postive for society. I'm just saying it's not enough to be visible anymore and it's time to start focusing on legislature. And yes, TennisAgenda's attitude is certainly not helping things.

You know, I've met a few gay Republicans. It just astounds me. Like, how is that possible?:scratch:

There are lots of gay republicans. Usually they tend more toward the libertarian side of things, but the republican party best represents them in terms of their views of foreign policy and taxation. I've met many professional gay guys who are republican. I remember one guy I knew went to the republican convention, and thank god, after atending he stopped supporting republicans because of everything he heard when he heard them talking about homosexuality.

Lagardere seems to be quite close to this Sarkosydude. He was threatening to fire the editor of Paris Match because he put a Sarkosy's wife with another man on the cover. It's quite the soap opera.

Anyway, if there were rumors about a 40 year old married man running around with a 20-year old female tennis player, the newspapers would be all over that relationship too. Maybe even more so.

If there great WTA lesbian champions such as Conchita Martinez and Amelie Mauresmo I don't see why there can't be gay ATP champions as well. People need to wake up its the year 2007 Le Point could of been sued for Libel for saying Gasquet and Largardere were having a gay affair. Lagardere is actually a very powerful man in France so yeah its interesting that a 40 something year old married father of two is so interested in a 20 year old tennis player. The French media are just doing there job they obviously had insider info and they decided to do their job and that's report the news. And Richard and his alleged boyfriend Arnaud Lagardere is news in France.

Maybe Gasquet just have an attractive monstrous thing on his body that attracts French Gay Old Rich Guys. Come on, it's not uncommon in this world - Old Rich guys are so lonely that they've become mentally abnormal and they find young boys to toy with despite even being married with a woman. And not all the young boys (around 19-20's) would resist, due to the amount of cash they are willing to give out - one penetration doggystyle for a million bucks!!!! I am sure there would be quite alot of people willing to do that, especially when around the age 20's, the age when you just commence to understand the importance of MONEY~~~~ But I gotta say I'll be pretty pissed of if such ridiculous bullcrap is released into the media haha poor gasquet. I just hope this doesn't distract him from his tennis because he's got hella good talents on the courts and very entertaining to watch.

I think it's already been said that Le Point did not instigate the rumours. They merely followed up on a story which has been doing tabloid rounds for months now(allegedly). Therefore I do not think there are any legitimate grounds for filing a lawsuit against them. Do not read too much into the fact that Richard and his uhm...40 year old friend have not sued them... yet :rolleyes:

Did you really read Le Point? They don't say Lagadere and Gasquet have a gay affair but only asked a question about this rumor... How can they be sued just for one question? :confused:

However, the French media smell blood and also in gay French circles and on French gay websites they have been talking about Gasquet being gay for a while now. I am very surprised the French media are so bold but it looks like Richard could indeed be gay. It would be great if Richard came out of the closet.

No it wouldn't be great cause my chances to become Gasquet's girlfriend would sink to 0% :haha: :haha:

TennisAgenda has obviously an agenda indeed... He's trying to spread the rumor
that isn't known at all to the media and people (even tennis folowers) in France contrary to what he wants to make believe...

1 light question was asked to Lagardère by Le Point within a very long and serious interview based on other things, 1 question was asked to Richard in Monte-Carlo. They both laughed it off and denied completely.

The rumor started because Lagardère was a friend of Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë (openly gay, socialist) and that after a long and heated fight he won and bought an old institution of sports in Paris (RCF) and that many many people are against him now so one launched a "pique" against him hinting to him being gay. Then it degenerated with other people linking it to Richard.

I wouldn't have known the rumor if i hadn't come here on MTF's GM. That's to tell you how it is "debated" in France... LOL

And this tv thing. Well Ardisson is a presenter of a tv show specialized in "shit-stirring"... Check Youtube to get an idea... So that's actually a good point in the balance for the "this rumor is complete BS" camp... :lol:

Delsa, Thanks for adding balance to this absurd thread. Who business is it anyway? The guy is a fantastic tennis player and the rest is none of anyone's business. But everyone loves the "juicy stuff"

I think the bigger story is will Richard finally break the top 10 this year?

He will make the top ten in his career but no Grand Slams for the ballerina spartan.

He will probably have a career like Roberdo but with more hype.

Before I respond, I'd love the clarification from overture- what is the point of posting the picture, within the context of this thread?

Do you even need to ask?? You more than know what that meant...


btw Overture, great timing lol

Yep, I do. Which is why I did. I never make assumptions about anything or anyone until they tell me what they meant.

...I'm telling you. That thing you assumed he/she meant...well he/she did. :)

Tennis star Richard Gasquet and his long term boyfriend. Sources close to couple confirm they plan to marry in San Francisco over the off season. Elton John and the Village People will perform at the wedding

No, that's a transvestite. I wouldn't expect you to tell the difference :p
