The very believable intense gay scenes that Devon executed to perfection has made many wonder if just maybe the actor could be drawing from personal real-life experiences.
As far as we can tell, Bostick has never officially debunked the gay rumors, instead, he has only added fuel to it by severally taking to his social media platforms to post cryptic messages about his relationships.
