English singer Morrissey has opened up about his first serious relationship with a man.

In his memoir Autobiography, the 54-year-old Morrissey, the former Smiths frontman, wrote about his relationship with Jake Owen Walters.

“Jake and I neither sought nor needed company other than our own for the whirlwind stretch to come,” Morrissey wrote, as the Guardian reported. “Indulgently Jake and I test how far each of us can go before 'being dwelt in' causes cries of intolerable struggle, but our closeness transcends such visitations.”

Over the weekend, Morrissey expanded on the relationship, explaining that he's not gay.

“Unfortunately, I am not homosexual,” he wrote in a note posted on True to You, a Morrissey fansite. “I am attracted to humans,” he said, then added, “But, of course … not many.”
