Diplo says he's received oral sex from a man and doesn't consider it 'that gay'
| Last updated
American DJ Diplo has said he's 'sure' he's had oral sex from another man before, but claimed that particular situation is 'not that gay'.
The 44-year-old opened up about some of his sexual history while speaking with model Emily Ratajkowski during an appearance on her podcast, High Low with Em Rata, which dropped today.
Ratajkowski enticed fans with a since-deleted clip from the show which didn't offer any context regarding Diplo's comments, but which saw him admit he was 'sure' he's had a blowjob from a guy.
It all began after Diplo revealed that his TikTok 'For You' page often recommends videos of men chopping wood, after which Ratajkowski urged him to talk about 'what you said to me last night, that you’re a little gay'.
The model proceeded to question the DJ's sexuality, saying: "Is that how you know that you’re not totally straight, from the wood-chopping [TikTok]?"
"Maybe," Diplo responded. "The wood-chopping guys are kinda sexy. I mean they’re hot guys, but I don’t know if that’s going to be the thing that’s going to set me over into the gay side totally."
The 44-year-old, who is a dad of three, went on to claim he's 'not on gay TikTok', but rather 'lumberjack TikTok'.
He explained he doesn't want to 'define' his sexuality, but suggested that getting oral sex from a member of the same sex might not be gay 'unless you make eye contact while [it's] happening'.
The podcast host quickly dismissed that particular comment as 'such a straight guy thing to say', prompting Diplo to respond: "Getting a blowjob's not that gay."
Though Diplo didn't feel the need to put a label on his sexual preferences, he offered up the 'best answer' he could, saying: "I’m not, not gay."
"I’m more of a vibe guy," he added, agreeing with Ratajkowski when she suggested he preferred 'vibe over gender'.
Diplo has previously been known to have relationships with women, and shares two of his sons, Lockett and Lazer, with his ex partner, event planner Kathryn Lockhart.
He's also known to have dated fellow musician MIA, though in 2015 he admitted to having 'made mistakes' in their relationship.
“I probably made mistakes in our relationship, but we made awesome music. Every time we had a fight, we made good music after," he said at the time.
Diplo shares a third child, named Pace, with Trinidadian model Jevon King.
