Rumors about Jeremy Renner's sexual preference have been circling for the past few years, but they escalated when he was involved in a bar brawl in Thailand. Although the official story was that the fight began when a member of Renner's party dropped a glass, a "blind" item showed up within days on blindgossip.com, regarding a bar brawl that happened when a famous actor engaged the services of a boy prostitute. When the pimp allegedly showed up at the bar wanting payment, someone in the actor's party was seriously hurt, but not the actor, who was whisked away. Many readers immediately believed the item referred to the Thailand brawl involving Renner. The actor told The Hollywood Reporter: "[The man who was attacked] was saying stuff, and 20 people jumped on him. I was in flip-flops. I don’t do bar fights. Did he deserve to get stabbed and almost murdered by 20 people? F— no.” He also denied the gay rumors, saying, "I want my personal life to be personal, and it’s not f--king true." The Avengers star added that even if the rumors were true, that would be his private business. "I don't care if you're talking about things that are true, you're still talking about my personal life," he added, "How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last, whose husband you were f--king, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel? It's none of your goddamn business."
