Is he gay? – Friend
Smollett came out as gay during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in March 2015. The “Empire” actor later told Variety in another interview that he didn’t reveal his sexuality to Ellen to garner attention or get people’s attention on what what he does in his bedroom, but what he did let people understand that they are not alone. “That’s all,” he added.
In an interview with Out Magazine in 2016, Smollett further clarified his sexual orientation, stating that he considers himself a gay man, but that openness to love is more important than gender. Should he ever fall in love with a woman, he would love that woman foolishly. He also revealed that growing up, he had an interest in girls.
So who has the Empire actor dated or is currently dating? In 2017, the former child actor was rumored to be in a relationship with the African-American businessman and philanthropist, with Tawan Davis and Smollett partially confirming that claim, per Page Six. I used the word “in part” because it does confirm that it is not currently on the market but does not reveal with whom, so it is assumed that the claims are correct. Let’s hope he’ll give the supposed mystic a name soon.
He was previously linked to director Anthony Hemingway, Raven Symone and Michael Sam.
