Pauley Perrette Husband, Dating, Gay, Now
Many celebrities speak on behalf of different human/animal rights, equality of men and women, and so on. Out of the many is actress Pauley Perrette. She is an ardent social and civil activist involved in many organizations working for animal rescue, civil rights, and LGBT rights.
Besides directly working for such social causes, Pauley puts effort on using TV to tackle the pressing issues of the society. An example of such work is a documentary she is directing and producing about the U.S. civil rights attorney and author, Mark Lane.
With Husband Or Gay?
Looking at Pauley Perrette’s dating history, she has had multiple partners. She was married to a musician named Coyote Shivers in 2000. The union turned out to be a disaster for Pauley as the pair split in 2004. There were allegations against Coyote from Pauley as well as his other exes that he stalked them and terrorized them sexually while dating. Pauley and Coyote finally divorced in 2006.
Next in line for Pauley was Michael Bosman. The pair started dating soon after the actress parted ways with her first husband. The two even got engaged sometime in 2008. However, the duo broke up around 2009.
After ending things with Michael, Pauley started dating a British actor named Thomas Arklie. The boyfriend-girlfriend duo got engaged in 2011. But, Pauley decided to get married after California got rid of Proposition 8, which took away the rights of gay couples.

Her TV career began when she started making small roles and guest appearances in TV shows such as ABC Afterschool Specials and Moloney. Pauley then got recurring roles in bigger TV shows such as Murder One, The Drew Carey Show, and Special Agent 2.
