Rumors are something that celebs are always surrounded by. As soon as you are a famous person, you get linked with several rumors be it with your personal life or your professional life. The same can be said about "True Blood" star Nelsan Ellis as he is often termed a gay. So what is the actual truth? Is he really a gay? Or does he have a wife or a life partner to shut those rumors?
Let us find out!
Is Ellis A Gay Or Is Straight With A Partner?
Well, Ellis has always been pretty open about gay rights and gay people in a positive manner. He is seen to be supporting gay rights and respecting gay people like he respects straight people. An example of him supporting gay rights was seen when he slammed fellow cast member Luke Grime when Luke quit the series after rejecting to play a gay man.
“You quit your job because you don’t want to play a gay part? You make a big statement when you go, ‘I don’t want to play this part because it’s gay,
He also added,
“You just made a statement, and it has ripple effects.”
Luke reportedly quit the series when he found out that his character James Kent was bisexual and was plotted for gay romance.
But Luke's representatives had a different side to the story and said that his departure was due to a scheduling conflict with the shooting of this then of forthcoming movies “American Sniper” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” rather than the story line of "True Blood."
Ellis however, became the victim of gay rumors as he was always supportive of gay rights and also never revealed anything about his love life including a female.

“I support it. I think anybody should — I mean — I have my religious views but I don’t choose to oppress them on anybody. I think in this country, anybody can do whatever they want to do as long as it’s not hurting anybody else or violating the laws of society.”
He continued saying,
“If you want to get married to a man then get married to a man, If two women want to get married they should get married. It’s not hurting me. The beautiful thing about this country is that I can be a Christian and feel free to do so. Or somebody cannot be a Christian and do whatever that entails. Or somebody can be a Christian and still be gay and I support it. Let gay people get married.”
Nelsan himself has not addressed these rumors nor has he opened up about his sexuality.
