A few years from now, Robert Sepulveda Jr. will be shrugging off reports that he was once the star of LOGO’s “Finding Prince Charming.” But for now, he’s continuing to come clean about his past — the rumors, the fact, and the (supposed) lies.
In an interview with People, Sepulveda addresses a number of topics, from private videos to furniture stores to paying the bills.
On his rumored adult film past:
“There are stories that I did porn. I never did porn.
“There is a video circulating out there that I shot privately and sent to an ex-boyfriend. It feels so violating that someone would take something so private and share it with the world. I want to work to make sure there are laws protecting people from similar situations. It’s just not right.”
On how he arrived at his decision to escort:
“The small furniture store I was working at suddenly went out of business.
“I didn’t know how I was going to pay rent or my [college] tuition or buy food.
“I saw no other way to support myself so I decided to do it too. I had all those expenses, I just knew that I had to do something. I had no other choice.”
On whether he expected his past to come up when he signed on to do Finding Prince Charming:
“I didn’t want to have to talk about that time in my life again. But I’m not ashamed of my past. I own it, and I talk about it with the guys on [Finding Prince Charming.]”
It begs the question: if he didn’t want to talk about his life, why sign on to be the focus of a reality dating show?
Finding Prince Charming premieres tonight at 9/8c on Logo.
