EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Hilborn’s former flame ‘He abused me to, I kept quiet because he threatened my life’
In an exclusive interview with Daily News, a former flame of Robert Hilborn has come forward revealing bombshell details about the time he spent with Hilborn — recounting even an instance whereas Hilborn reportedly assaulted him after a fallout inside a hotel room.
The man only identified as ‘George‘ [name withheld] says he met Hilborn around May 2009 and almost immediately began a ‘no strings attached’ relationship with Robert before embarking on what was a short-lived romantic relationship halted after ‘George’ was assaulted by Robert during a fallout that occurred in a hotel room the two were staying at while Rob was purportedly working.
You say you dated Robert Hilborn following the two of you ‘hooking-up’ if you will? When did this occur?
We met each other around May 2009. It didn’t take long for the two of us to meet because we’re both in the army. [I later by complete coincidence met him at a bar called The Mix]. He was nice at first, until he started to request [and try to do things] that I didn’t like nor want to do, and eventually started to scold him for it while at the hotel he took me too.
When I started scolding him for things that was when he’d get angry and throw tantrum like behavior spats because he wasn’t getting what he wanted or couldn’t do bizarre sexual things to me while in the shower.
How did you two meet? Was it offline? Through a friend? On a dating app?
He came across me on Adam4Adam.com and I didn’t respond to his messages because he came off kind of ‘creepy’. I frequent a bar called The Mix, which I had gone to the same night with a group of friends [and coincidentally was approached] by the same man who tried picking up on me on Adam4Adam.com
He didn’t immediately identify himself to me, I only learned what his name was after asking the other guy he was also hitting on. Having had my friends around I felt safe, so I finally decided to speak to him.
We kind of hit it off, and I eventually decided to go back to this hotel room with him downtown. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express to be exact, he told me he wanted me to ‘feel nice’ and that I should be OK with engaging in sexual acts in such a nice place.
I wasn’t really thinking at the time that he was a violent person as he numerous times told me that he was safe, clean, and a normal guy. I believed him at the time because I had no hard-reason not to.
Adam, you say? What was that like? Can you recall what he said to you?
He almost immediately asked me for a sexual picture, as I don’t believe in posting them online; I decided against responding to him but later ran into him at The Mix which was where we shared our first conversation like I stated earlier.
In The Mix he tried real hard to pick up on me, almost like a deprived husband looking for a midnight hook-up away from his wife. I had a few drinks and then ended up in a hotel room with him, where he got me to allow him to ‘do things’ to me as a bottom.
In the weeks following the encounter, I had felt different. I noticed rashes appearing on my body, continuing sweats, and I had begun to shed weight that I had not set out to even lose in the first place.
In fear, I visited a local HIV testing centre only to discover that I had tested positive for the virus that I knew I hadn’t gotten from anybody else. Not immediately jumping to conclusions, I called 3 of the men I had previously been with asking them to please get tested showing me that they did not have the virus in any way.
I discovered that it could’ve only been Robert who gave it to me as no one of the three men I had previously had relations with tested positive. I fear the most is that he may have given other men the same virus he gave me, by lying to them just like he did to me to get me to go to the hotel with him.
Have you told anybody about this? Why did you choose now to come forward?
Robert assaulted me when we were seeing each other, and made the remark that if I opened my mouth he’d deny it and make sure I never ‘see the light’ again.
I chose to come forward after reading other encounters people had had with Robert whilst I was going through the recovery phase. I feel like this is a game to him, harming other people and moving on like it doesn’t matter to him.
When was the last time you spoke to Robert?
I last spoke to him about five months ago because he e-mailed me trying to meet me again but I wasn’t having it. I knew what his intentions were and I wasn’t about to do it again knowing what he did last time.
The only time I responded to him was to tell him to leave me alone and never talk to me again or I’d call the police this time and really tell them what he did.
