Michael Sam, boyfriend Vito Cammisano broke up?
After abruptly leaving the Montreal Alouettes earlier this month, Michael Sam returned to the team on Sunday night and explained that he needed to take care of some issues in his personal life. We now have an idea of what may have been going on.
It appears Sam and his boyfriend Vito Cammisano, to whom the former Missouri star was engaged, have broken up.
As TMZ pointed out, Sam has removed several photos of himself with Cammisano from his Twitter and Instagram pages. One of them is the photo that shows Sam down on one knee proposing to Cammisano during a trip to Europe. Sam and Cammisano have also not been spotted together in roughly two months, and Vito said nothing on social media after Sam left the Alouettes.
For further evidence, TMZ noticed that Cammisano — an aspiring video blogger — posted a video on YouTube earlier this week in which he is not wearing an engagement ring. Here’s a screenshot:
There has been speculation that Sam left the Alouettes because he was “pouting” after a teammate made a comment about him, but relationship trouble would make more sense. If you remember, Sam and Cammisano kissed on national television after Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams. They have been very public with their displays of affection since Sam came out. Something has to be up.
