Ricky Whittle famously well known for his work in the soap opera Hollyoaks as Calvin Valentine. Has found himself wrapped in some gay speculations and girlfriend assumptions.

So, let's jump into the dating and personal details of Ricky while debunking the all the rumors:

Ricky Whittle's Past Girlfriends

Talking about Ricky's past dating life, the single now star dated an American actress Carley Stenson in 2007. The relationship lasted for around three years as it ended in 2011.

The duo made a great pair, but alas, the relationship only lasted for a year. However, no exact details of their breakup were disclosed.

Moving on, Whittle dated actress Rumer Willis around May 2014. Though the exact details of their meetings got disclosed, they went separate ways the same year.

When going through the breakup details, not a single piece of information was revealed from both parties.

While speaking of assumptions, Ricky was spotted with a beautiful lady and potential girlfriend, Sara, in the early month of June 2015

Ricky and Sara were pictured hand in hand at Vancouver Airport, Canada, while they flew for the weekend.

However, in an interview taken in August 2015, Ricky shared his relationship status as a single man without a girlfriend. He stated,

“I’m single and focused on work and making myself better than I was yesterday. I’m happy with life. I’m just trying to be a real person and, hopefully, when the right person comes along.”

Well, it seems like the duo's dating life ended after two months or perhaps even longer. Maybe there existed the case of confidential dating to avoid unwanted paparazzi.

Crush On Co-Star

After Sara, Ricky began dating a yoga instructor and ex-girlfriend Kristina Colonna.

Amazingly enough, his off-screen crush shared a similar name as Kristina. In October 2018 interview, Ricky raved about his co-star Kristin Chenoweth. Even suggesting a proposal to his crush.

Similarly, as Ricky prefers to keep the details of his romantic life under the wraps away from the media, the reason for this breakup was not revealed as well.

Tackling Gay Rumors

Well, while going through the relationship history, several ups and downs were seen, following these instances gave birth to assumptions regarding the star's sexuality claiming him to be a gay man.

As the star has not come forward with a statement, we cannot assume his sexuality, or him being a gay man. But his support for the community can be seen.

Take his 2012 tweet for an instance where he highlighted one of the issues for the LGBTQIA+ community with satire. He wrote:

"Gay marriage is legal in 6 states. Having sex with a horse is legal in 23. Good going, America."

In three years since his tweet, the SCOTUS legalized same-sex marriage.
