Pete Wentz Wife, Parents, Children, Net Worth
Pete Wentz is an American musician mostly known as a member of the Chicago based rock band, Fall Out Boy. He’s been an essential part of the group as the bassist and primary lyricist.
Interestingly, with eyes decorated with eyeliner, he disrupted the gender roles in rock and roll by giving performances that appealed to gay fans as well. Also, there were rumors in 2009 that Pete was secretly gay. But, he put a stop to the claims citing his sexuality as straight and even wished to become a gay man.
His sexual preference is irrelevant as the musician puts humanity above all. He has done several humanitarian works for fundraising projects such as Invisible Children, Inc., and UNICEF's Tap Project.
