Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere answers gay rumors


020917-Iris_PUSH.jpgRight after Miss France Iris Mittenaere was crowned Miss Universe last January 30, rumors circulated that she might be the first openly gay pageant winner and is in relationship with Camille Cerf, another beauty queen.


Iris dismissed the rumors, saying she has a boyfriend, Matthieu Declerq, who is also a dentist.

“Camille is my best friend and I love my boyfriend Matthieu. I really love her, but I am not with her. She is not my girlfriend,” she told GMA News.

Matthieu was also present during the Miss Universe pageant in Manila.
