Male model spills sex secret of Gately's last hours

Mon 30 Nov 2009 In: International News View at Wayback

A Bulgarian male model who was with Boyzone singer Stephen Gately and his husband on the night he died has sold his story to the UK's tabloid Daily Mirror. Last hours revealed: Stephen Gately Georgi Dochev, 25, says he had sex with Gately and his husband, then stayed the night with the pair. "All three of us were totally comfortable with what happened. It wasn't anything sleazy. It was three consenting adults enjoying themselves," he said. Dochev also told the newspaper harrowing details of finding Gately dead, having choked to death after their boozy night out. "I instinctively picked up his hand and felt for a pulse, but there was nothing... It was impossible to give him first aid. His body was stiff and his jaw was rigid," he said. The remaining members of Boyzone say they're angry that Dochev has told all about Gately's final hours, but the male model says he wanted to set the record straight about overdose rumours. He added that they had smoked marijuana together on the night Gately died but none of them had taken any other drugs.
