Ole Henriksen, stylist and close friend of Ricky Martin, let it slip in an interview with Danish newspaper Nyhedsavisen that the Puerto Rican superstar might be gay.

When asked whom he’d like to spend a romantic vacation with, the skin care expert said: “I’d go for Stig Tofting [former Danish soccer player], but since he’s straight, I’d say my client Ricky Martin.”

The singer’s sexual orientation has been under the microscope for some time now. The question now is whether or not the two will remain friends after Henriksen’s insinuations, which could inadvertently push his client out of the closet.

Henriksen is a cosmetics specialist with a salon on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. He’s worked with celebs like Naomi Campbell, Charlize Theron and Renée Zellweger, among others.
