Well, if you think that came out of nowhere, you don't know what we are about to state next!
Louis himself admitted that he married Stephen Gately one of the singers of Boyzone back in time. However, he planted the fake stories to cover up the sexuality of Boyzone's Stephen Gately. Walsh said,
“That is true, I married Stephen Gately off to so many people, because Stephen didn’t want anyone to know he was gay at the start.”
Not just that, previously, in 2011, Louis was unluckily deceived in the controversy of sexually assaulting a man Leonard Watters in the toilets of a nightclub in Dublin. The Sun newspaper published false news about him which stirred the rumors like haywire.
However, Louis Walsh came clean against the assault. He was indeed innocent, and the accuser landed himself in jail for six months for making up the claims. Louis told the Sunday Independent,
”I thought I was finished in the business, especially dealing with boy-bands and girl-bands and all that,” .'People are going to think that there's something not right here.
Moreover, he was about to contemplate suicide as he was helpless.
‘I thought: “I can’t go home! What if no one believes me?”’ I saw bottles of pills and thought of taking them.’
Furthermore, Louis added,
“It wasn’t about the money — it was about clearing my name. I wanted them to apologize, and I wanted revenge, to be honest. I wanted them to suffer, and I wanted people to know what they did to me.”
Well, Louis indeed came clean about the sexual assault allegation, but his sexuality isn't in the clear yet. Louis at the age of 65 is supposedly single and doesn't seem to have a partner/wife. Having said that Louis has some clarification to make amid his fans to help them know the fact behind his single life relationship status.
