Designer Marc Jacobs Leaves Grindr Following Orgy Claims


American fashion designer Marc Jacobs has revealed he has quit gay dating app Grindr, after claims were made online about his sex life.

The 52-year-old uploaded a post to Instagram to announce his departure from the app.

The post read: “Goodbye (for now) Grindr! It was fun for “group” get togethers, but, what really excites me is my work!”

He added: “Yup. I’m gay. Sometimes I enjoy sex. Sometimes! #stillonlyhuman #callmemarc #yourstotry…maybe.”

His decision to quit the app reportedly followed claims that he had attended an all-male orgy, made public by Page Six.

Page Six quoted its source saying: “People weren’t as good-looking as I expected. They were average, chill people who didn’t have any attitude, which was really nice.”

After the story was published, Jacobs took to the photo-sharing network once again, saying: “Wild??? I’d say “MILD”.

“And to whichever guest benefited from calling this misinformation into the Post, I only wish you good health, happiness, and a long life to enjoy taking advantage of the kindness of strangers and talking s**t about others. #reallyqueen?’

The openly-gay designer had previously admitted to being active on the hookup app.

He told Paper magazine: ‘I don’t have any hang-ups about those kinds of things. I don’t really care. Who’s kidding who?

“I’ve talked about having hair transplants, I’ve talked about my drug problems, I’ve talked about my drinking problems, I’ve talked about sex.

“I just think it’s so much better to sort of be honest about those things. I always find it very dubious and I don’t really trust people who deny human instincts.”
