When Carlton Morton and Diamond Jack got engaged, a certain rift came about that caused them to shortly after go their separate ways. Morton revealed to Jack that he is bisexual, and that insight into his sexuality caused their relationship to fizzle in an irreparable way.

Now, in a recent interview with podcast 'Love In Sight', Morton explained that Jack was not the first person he opened up to about his sexuality on the show, it was actually Cameron Hamilton.

Hamilton himself was engaged to Lauren Speed during his duration on 'Love Is Blind,' and developed a friendship with Morton as they filmed. Morton says he opened up to Hamilton once his co-star noticed that something was "off" about him.

"You know, Cameron was the only person who knew during filming because he was like just a friend and he noticed my persona. You know, one day when we got back after filming he was like, ‘Man, is everything OK?’ And I was like, ‘No, everything is not OK. And I’m really worried," Morton said.

"I’m about to make this decision between two ladies and I also have to share information with the person that I’m selecting,’” he said. “You know, it kinda made him wonder, like ‘Well, what is it? Like, if you need somebody to talk to’ type situation and I just told him," he continued.

Morton then added that Hamilton was "supportive" following his reveal.

"It never got back to anyone. It never leaked. He was very supportive. You know, he wasn’t strange or anything like that. But he was definitely like the only person that I told," he said.

When the podcast host asked Morton if he​ and Hamilton still keep in touch, he admitted that he doesn't see his friend as much as he'd like anymore.

"You know Cameron’s like Leonardo DiCaprio right now. He’s booked and busy, OK? So like when I can reach him, you know."

Aside from Hamilton, Morton said other cast members have also been very supportive, saying, "I’m so proud of all of my castmates. Damian has reached out, like repeatedly. Every time he senses something or sees some press or something, he’ll reach out and be like, 'Brother, I’m here if you need someone to talk.'"

Morton also said that Matt Barnett has been very supportive of him as well, "Barnett also. Barnett is somebody who reached out and was like, 'Man, if you need me I’m here, like call me, whatever.' So people have really been great, you know, where they should be. And it’s so unassuming. Cuz everybody looks at someone like Barnett who’s always joking and stuff like, 'Can he be serious? Can he have a sentimental moment?' But those are really stand-up guys."
