In July 2010, when the 27-year-old got his Twitter account hacked, he gained massive attention after the hacker posted the tweet which read,

‘It's been difficult living a lie for so many years...'

The young singer finally broke his real sexual orientation after seemingly feeling pressurized from the hacked post that made him realize his true sexuality. So, he spilled his true feeling on the media saying,

“I have always been a very honest person and so it is important for me to continue to be honest. It has been the most amazing year so far and I feel so privileged. It’s also been a time of real self-realization and I feel as if I have grown up so much in these few months.”

After coming out of his closet, he further explained that he had some struggles with his sexual orientation while growing up. So after reflecting on the topic for some time, Joe finally got the answer to it and chose to bring forward to everybody who had been questioning his identity for a while.

With so much fandom from the audience, the bigger question lies as “Whether the singer is currently dating anyone now in 2018?”.

The pop star, who had a history of dating girlfriends during school when he was a closeted gay, is currently reported to be single. 

There has been no such evidence which hints about the singer's partner or a boyfriend, but his new hunky looks and extreme weight loss could imply that he is preparing himself for dating.

As for now, Joe is busy taking tours and releasing his new albums with more soothing songs on stores!
