It is a certainty that once you become visible in the public eye, they will be involved in and interested in everything about your life and affairs. Conversely, when celebrities keep their romances private, it opens up Pandora's box for the public. Their bachelor state becomes a talking point!

Similarly, Kelly Holmes' hidden relationship status and sexual orientation have also sparked debate. So, today, we're going to dig right in and learn about her personal life.

A Gold Win For Holmes But A Feud With Her Partner

Holmes surprised us when she won the gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, which may be regarded as one of her most memorable moments. She was crowned as the country's new hero after her performance gave the British team a major boost.

But, as they say, not everything wonderful is etched in our stars, and Holmes' situation was no exception. 

When she was busy rejoicing over her huge triumph and being happy, Maria Mutola, her long-time training buddy, on the other hand, was not in the same spirit. To add, she didn't even go out of her way to applaud her accomplishment.

Mutola, who suffered a hamstring problem preceding her Olympic participation, was in jeopardy just a month before the competition. The reigning champion criticized Holmes for utilizing her infirmity to win the Summer Olympic championship after her partner won gold.

The distance athlete acknowledged her participation in Athens two weeks prior, as per her version of the story. Her partner, on either side, begged to disagree. It was a complete mess as she remained steadfast in her claim that Holmes was fully aware of her weakness and helplessness.

After the tournament, it was revealed that the couples had quit training together, which was somewhat foreseen. Although the reason for their choice was not stated, it appeared that their friendship had ended.

As Everyone Wonders: Is Kelly Holmes Married?

A question from the general public has been bugging Holmes for some time. But, until now, she has been silent on the subject.

She did, however, once tweet about having a husband, much to everyone's amazement. The public was shocked by the news and had mixed feelings.

It appears to be merely a random tweet, even though it was unexpected; she has no one in her life who could be named her hubby, so it seems to be nothing serious.

She now feels she is too old to have children, and she is pleased that she will not be responsible for them at the age of 51. This indicates that she is not in a hurry to find herself a lover.

Secrecy Leads to Suspicions: Is She A Lesbian?

Before we get into the real answer, it's important to recognize that this is what the general populace does. When they can't get a scoop on someone's personal lives or affairs, they make wild guesses about what they do, how they live, who they date, and where they are. 

As a result, Holmes' lack of a lover and married life may be the reason why so many people believe she is a lesbian. And, well, to break the news to everyone, she is totally straight.

However, she has been involved in lesbian discussions on Twitter on a few occasions.

Trans activists have recently attacked Holmes because she opposed transitioned athletes playing in women's sports. In addition, she backs a campaign that says guys with a gender advantage shouldn't compete in women's sports.

After defeating COVID, the distance runner tells everyone that she is fully healthy and ready to continue on her mission to become influential to everyone. She will also compete in the Great Celebrity Bake Off to pay respect to her late mother Pam, who died of blood cancer in 2017. Dame Kelly Holmes has a net worth of $1 million to $5 million as of 2021.
