“Everyone’s been attacking us since we’ve been together, especially my mother,” said Christopher Montero following his arraignment at Manhattan Criminal Court yesterday. “We just wanted to end it that day.”
Montero said he and his pre-operative transsexual lover, 32-year-old William Rund, slept in Central Park Thursday morning after Rund had quarreled with his roommate.
Montero and Rund are both on antidepressants to combat bipolar disorder and were “very stressed out,” the teen said.
“Once we climbed up, we talked about jumping in an attempt to show our love for each other,” Montero said.
Instead, the two spent four hours in negotiations with cops. Witnesses said the pair – dressed only in underwear – engaged in sex acts, but Montero wouldn’t comment on the alleged hanky-panky.
He was charged with a slew of misdemeanors and released. Rund was still being evaluated yesterday at Bellevue Hospital.
“She loves drama,” Montero said of his lover. “I can’t help it. I love it, too. When I do something, I do it all they way.”
The pair met three months ago in an online chat room, and Montero proposed to Rund on Valentine’s Day, hiding a ring with a pink stone in the transsexual’s apartment.
But Montero said his mother Rosemarie was against the union from the start. According to the teen, the mother said, “I’ll never love you like I did before you met Billie Rund.”
Montero also said his mother had threatened to get a restraining order against Rund.
Rosemarie Montero declined comment.
And she wasn’t present when her son, clad in hospital scrubs, emerged from his arraignment after two days in a holding cell.
“That’s fake,” he said. “A mother’s love should be unconditional . . . I’m not going to choose my mother over my lover.”
