Gareth Thomas Lambasts Journalist Who Told His Parents He Was HIV+ Before He Got The Chance
Over the weekend, Gareth went public with the fact he was HIV+, revealing undisclosed “evil” people had “made his life hell” by threatening to reveal his condition without his consent.
Elaborating further in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, the former Wales captain revealed that it was a journalist who broke the news to his parents.He told the station: “[My parents] love me whatever, but I can never have that time back. I can never have that moment back… to sit down with them and be able to explain to them why their son is going to be OK and is going to be able to live through this and live a healthy, normal life.” 
Through tears, Gareth continued: “That person came and took that moment away from me. And my parents will say that they’re fine, because that’s my parents. But I can’t really tell you how they felt because I can’t imagine how they would feel.
“Can you imagine someone coming to your door and saying something so personal and so intrusive to you about the person you would love and protect through anything? Can you imagine how that would feel?”"I can never have that moment back."A journalist told @gareththomas14 ‘s parents about his HIV status before he had.
