Gay Rumor Gains Traction After "Bromance"

Having the tag of a ladies man in his fame show Jersey Shore, he was quite romantic by heart and considered as a gentleman. He is still in touch with his reality TV show friends and got photographed in the wedding of “JWoow” Jenni Farley's and an interview to on 2016 Vinny said:-

"I'm not in touch with everybody, Some people were closer than others. I went to Jenni's wedding and I saw everybody over there.

Vinny had flaunted his "bromance" with Pauly D on MTV's Jersey Shore and was also considered as stand out a couple, from confessionals to creeping, to grabbing food at Rivoli's, the pair did everything together while they were in MTV show.

This "bromance" gained a lot of limelight and is the only reason for behind the gay rumors, and Vinny also makes funny tweets on him being gay. Tweeting from a gay bar, in September 2015, the former Jersey Shore star wrote:-

"I'm in a Gay bar and there really are mad girls here the rumors are true... "

Well, fans would not mind if Vinny chooses to be gay but looking at his past relationship they wonder if he is gay or not?

Vinny had been in lots of relationships and that too with all ladies so there is no point of calling Vinny “gay.” His previous relation includes Melanie Iglesias(2012-2014), Caitlin Ryder(2010), Ramona(2010), Angelina Pivarnick(2010) and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (2010-2011).

Also, the rumors suggest that he once built romantic ties with Jasmine Waltz(2010).

Dating Woes: Breakup With Girlfriend Melanie

To break up with someone to whom you had known for so long is sturdy and in Vinny's case, the story is the same.

Vinny and his ex-girlfriend Melanie Iglesias had a romantic relationship, which all started on their reality TV show Jersey Shore. The couple spent a romantic time together and did everything that a couple does, but this could not save their relationship.

Vinny and Melanie had a breakup and patched up earlier as any normal couple, but this time, we guess it's all over, and both have moved on in their life.

Moreover, Melanie had also claimed that they were never a couple and were only friends. They had officially broken up in 2014, and the main reason for their break up is considered to be Melanie twitter rant and Vinny cheating on her.

Life After Melanie

Following his short-lived romance with Melanie, Vinny took a break from dating and began focusing on his career.

The reality star, however, wouldn't remain single for the rest of his life though. In the spring of 2018, he ignited love with Instagram model Elicea Shyaan. So excited was he about his relationship with his former girlfriend Elicea that he remained faithful during the Jersey Shore Family Vacation.

Upon the return, Vinny reclaimed his singlehood after opening about their romance, which was already on the rocks. Even a trip to Sun-filled Miami beach couldn't rescue the waning love.

Following the split in the summer of 2018, his ex Elicea accused him of humiliating her. Her Insta posts suggested that she might have felt slighted and used by the reality star. In response, Vinny slammed the "haters" for implying that he cheated on Elicea.

Perhaps with Double Shot at Love With DJ Pauly D & Vinny, the former Jersey Shore star will have better luck finding the one.

Meaning Behind His Tattoo

Tattoo in the present day is contemporary art that people portray on their body and tatts have different reasonings.

And in Vinny case, his tattoo has a special meaning to it. Vinny has tatted “let go and let God” on his chest. He describes the ink as:-

 “Let go and let God,” is a popular Christian affirmation, the affirmation is mean to help people who are going through tough times because “life becomes easier when divine wisdom is at the forefront of each decision.”

“Letting go and letting God is accomplished by not allowing outside influences to affect your sobriety. ‘It’s not my fault that X happened. I won’t take the blame and I won’t respond by using. I’ll let God handle this one.’ The practical outcome is reduced stress and pressure to live the perfect life or take on more than we can bear.”
