Los Angels: Singer Ricky Martin has revealed that he used to bully those people who were gay.
The 41-year-old `Livin` la Vida Loca` hitmaker, who has twin sons Matteo and Valentino, was anxious for the appropriate upbringing of his children, reported Contactmusic.
"I look back now and realise I would bully people who I knew were gay. I had internalised homophobia. To realise that was confronting to me. I wanted to get away from that," Martin said.
"I didn`t want them (his twin sons) growing up in a house of lies or thinking that there was something wrong with being gay," he added.
Martin came out with the news of his homosexuality in 2010.
