Earlier this year, Colton Haynes of Teen Wolf and Arrow fame decided he no longer wanted to hide his sexuality from the public, and made the decision to come out in May.
Explaining that he hadn't felt ready to reveal that part of himself to his fans until this year, the popular actor insisted he's happier than he's ever been.
"It took me so long to get to this point, but I’m doing so good. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and healthier than I’ve ever been, and that’s what I care about," he said at the time.
However, despite Colton's upbeat attitude, the star was concealing the fact that he had been told that his father's decision to take his own life was due to his son's sexual orientation.
In an exceptionally revealing interview with Out magazine, the 28-year-old, who came out to family and friends at 14, explained that he had shouldered responsibility for his father's tragic passing.
"But I was told that my dad killed himself because he found out I was gay," he explained. "So, of course, I lost it and was like, 'How could you say something like that."
"No one will ever really know the truth," he added.
Colton told the publication that he doesn't expect pity on account of his father's death nor the fact he was forced to consider the possibility that his sexuality was the catalyst for his passing.
