Chances are, you have thought about it and we know we have to. It’s a glaring question that has caused quite a stir in the Hollywood scene; Is Ryan Seacrest gay? You will have to keep reading this diligently to find out the truth about which team he swings for.
Is Ryan Seacrest Gay?
In his case, the list of women he has dated is not ample proof that the actor likes women. His sexuality is as much an integral part of American Idols as the singing is and he mostly has Simon Cowell to thank for that. According to the Daily Beast, ‘the acidic British talent judge simply will not let Seacrest be straight.’
How does he do this, the same source revealed that ‘… perhaps unaware that Americans don’t say such things in public, Cowell punctuates his put-downs of Seacrest with “sweetheart,” suggested the host “should know” whether a contestant’s high heels were fashionable, and even counseled Seacrest to “come out” of the closet.’
This is not even half of it, but the seed was planted and Ryan has been fighting the notion since. The rumors almost affected his love life at some point as Seacrest had been persistently pursuing his now ex-girlfriend, Julianne Hough for years before she agreed to go on a date with him.
The Dancing With The Stars judge revealed that ‘He totally wasn’t my type, I thought he was gay.’
More recently, there has been a viral video that shows Britney Spear’s shock when she realized that she did not indeed have a gay best friend. Before that interview in 2013, if she was asked the question, ‘is Ryan Seacrest gay?’ her answer would be ‘yes’.
Well, this is how the story goes, Britney and will.i.am was being interviewed by Ryan on his iHeartRadio show in 2013 and they started chatting about their relationships with women, much to Britney’s surprise. According to the Daily Mail, Ryan was talking about how he sprayed ‘girls’ cologne on my pillow to make me think they’re there,’ Lancome’s Tresore being his perfume of choice.
Then came the moment of truth when Britney mouthed the word ‘girl’ to the camera and it was indeed the moment she realized that her gay bestie was actually straight. We doubt that everyone will magically believe he is not gay overnight (Simon did his work well), but there you have it, if you call Ryan Seacrest gay, you are brutally wrong.
Does Ryan Seacrest Have A Wife Or Girlfriend?
For someone people think is gay, he has had a handful of hookups, Ryan does not seem to be dating anyone at the moment, though the rumor mill would beg to differ. Apparently, he has been spending an ample amount of time with the model, Adriana Lima. The rumors sparked up after Seacrest and Lima spent time together in Rio during the Olympics.
More recently, they began to spend time together in New York, when Seacrest was in town for work and she was in attending Fashion Week. The two went out to Dell’Anima in NYC that weekend and they seemed to be getting very cozy.
We are still on the fence about their relationship status though, according to E! News they are in a new relationship and are still finding their bearings while ET says that the whole story is nothing but a rumor as both of them recently came out of serious relationships.
Speaking of serious relationships, prior to the ‘rumors’ surrounding his current relationship status, he was in a very serious relationship with Dancing With The Stars judge, Julianne Hough that lasted for almost 3 years. It was so serious that people thought they were going to get hitched for sure.
Sources say that their schedules were just too hectic, but Julianne gave a little more insight into that issue when she told Redbook, ‘ Every relationship, there was nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right, I had one foot out because I didn’t want to get hurt. And I didn’t say what was on my mind because I didn’t want to ruffle any feathers. I needed to be perfect.’
We guess it’s safe to say that Ryan is technically not in a relationship at the moment, but we will definitely be on the lookout.
