Married Life Secrecy Linked To Lesbianism

Jo's love life is a mystery not only to her fans but, to the internet community as a whole. Famous for athletic body and rebellious nature, Jo is not known to have been in any committed relationship in the past, and the present hasn't changed much too.

Her unmarried status and the absence of a husbandly figure in her life has led many to suspect if Jo is secretly a lesbian. However, the lesbian theory also can't be concluded as the former athlete has never mentioned a female partner.
