Furthermore, he talked about his girlfriend via a tweet in 2013, which is still quite in the past. So, it can only be speculated that he has a girlfriend.

But, as of now, no information states whether he has a wife or a girlfriend.

As the star is hush-hush about his dating life or spouse, there have been rumors about his sexuality, tagging him as a gay man. And some may also speculate him of having a husband.

But the rumors cannot be confirmed as the star has not come out with any statement verifying the rumors. Therefore, we cannot assume his sexuality.
