Michael Sam has only been a professional athlete for a few days, but already details about his love life read like a casting notice for Basketball Wives. The NFL rookie, who made history as the first openly-gay athlete to be drafted into the NBA, made waves when he was photographed sharing a sweet kiss with his boyfriend Vito Cammisano. But new details about Cammisano's past are not so sweet.

According to the New York Daily News, Cammisano's father served 14 months in jail for running a gambling ring in Kansas City. His grandfather, "Willie the Rat" Cammisano had ties to the Civella crime family of Kansas City.

To make matters more interesting, Cammisano reportedly dated an adult film star named Austin Wilde before settling down with Sam. Queerty reports Wilde and Cammisano casually dated in 2013 before breaking it off sometime last summer.

But don't let the crime-and-porn past fool you: the Daily News notes that despite colorful life, Vito Cammisano, 23, is an all-around good guy who graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in communications.

As one-half of a sports power couple, Cammisano might as well get used to the sometimes unwanted media attention.
