Isiah Thomas Son Opens Up About Being Raped Twice 


The 28-year-old son of NBA icon Isiah Thomas has opened up about his past while advocating for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts, Zeke Thomas opened up about how living as a gay Black man is. 

He also revealed he was raped twice in his life, the most recent being just last year. 

Thomas said:

“Being gay, being Afican-American, it’s definitely something that I never imagined would happen to me.

At first, I didn’t realize what had happened, what had transpired. I knew that it was wrong, I knew I did not want it.  I did not seek it out.”

On being sexually assaulted last year, Thomas felt that his attacker robbed him of his “manhood” but he never pressed charges in either case because he was afraid of being labelled a victim.
