Orlando Shooting: Man Who Says He Was Omar Mateen’s Gay Lover Speaks Out
He said the sexual relationship lasted about two months, and they met at a hotel in Orlando between 15 and 20 times.
Miguel told Univison that he believes Mateen intentionally targeted Latinos in retribution for feeling rejected by Puerto Ricans.
“I believe this is not terrorism,” Miguel said, despite investigators saying Mateen called 911 and posted to Facebook to pledge allegiance to ISIS during the rampage.
Rather, Miguel claimed Mateen was acting on revenge after being with a Puerto Rican man whom he later learned was HIV positive.
