David Bar Katz Says He Was Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Gay Lover
Via RadarOnline reports:
Screenwriter David Bar Katz, the man who found the body of late Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, tells The National ENQUIRER he was in a gay relationship with the actor.
“We were homosexual lovers,” Katz, Hoffman’s friend and confidante, said in a new interview. “We had a relationship.”
Katz told The ENQUIRER prior to discovering the Boogie Nights star in his bathroom early Sunday, he and Hoffman had been “planning to go to the Super Bowl together and have a really nice day.
“This is so terrible,” he added.
Katz told The ENQUIRER he’d witnessed the actor use heroin before, “but I never thought his addiction had reached that level.”
Katz said he’d seen the troubled actor freebase cocaine the night prior to his fatal overdose.
A source told The ENQUIRER that Hoffman’s issues with drugs and his sexuality eventually put an end to his relationship with Mimi O’Donnell, his girlfriend of 15 years and the mother of his three kids.
“His drug use, and his ambivalence over whether he was straight or gay, drove a wedge between him and Mimi and broke them up,” the insider told The ENQUIRER. “One part of him wanted a normal family life while another part wanted heroin and the gay life.”
It’s bad enough to be found dead with a needle in your arm, but now this? Why not shut your mouth and let the guy have some dignity in death.
