Is Blackbear Gay or Does He Have A Girlfriend? What is His Net Worth?

Blackbear is an American artist who rose to fame in 2015 with the release of his first album, Deadroses. Since then, has become a force to be reckoned with in hip-hop and rap circles. He also has a smooth working relationship with his fellow musicians as he has collaborated with a plethora of them. Even though he began music career at a very young age, he has progressed steadily, putting out quality music for his growing fanbase.

Early Life And Career

Blackbear was born Matthew Tyler Musto on the 27th of November, 1990 in Daytona Beach, Florida to a teenage mother who struggled with heroin addiction. His father was absent from his life and so he was raised by an Italian-Catholic stepfather who ran a business – cleaning boats.

Described during his early years as a rebel, trouble maker, and wild child, he was introduced to music as a child when a family friend got him a snare drum at the age of six. At age eleven, he owned his first guitar and was off playing at birthday parties. Blackbear dropped out in 9th grade when his band Polaroid was signed up by a record label.

In his late teens, he relocated to Atlanta, Georgia and then to Los Angeles, California. His first Extended Play (EP) as a high school student and a band member was Inside Out. Before he left the group, they released their first demo, Cure Demo, and were later signed by Leakmob Records.

After he left the group, he met up with Ne-Yo, an American musician based in Atlanta. He began his professional solo musical career when he moved to Atlanta and in the years that followed, he released a couple of EPs such as Brightness in 2008, followed by Contrast in the next year and in 2010, he came out with Exposure.

One of his most successful songs is the single titled Boyfriend which was co-written by Justin Bieber and Michael Posner. The single peaked at the No 2. spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This song was also a hit in other countries such as Canada, Portugal, and Norway.

Is Blackbear Gay?

The talented American musician is one of the many celebrities whose sexual orientation has become a thing of public interest. After he posted an update on his Twitter handle in 2015, rumors began to fly around that he could possibly be a closeted gay rapper. The rumors were, however, put to rest after he disclosed that his roommate is gay. He further reiterated his support for whatever choice he (his roommate) makes in life. For someone that rarely grants interviews, there has been no official statement whatsoever about his sexuality.

Does He Have A Girlfriend?

Meanwhile, Blackbear has been linked to a few relationships to date. With the many controversies that trailed his relationship with the famous actress, Bella Throne, the music star said that he needed a fresh start – and he got one. The artist is currently dating Sydney Carlson. The only information known about her is that she is a popular social media personality. The duo has been together since 2017 and they are growing stronger. He often shares photos of their relationship on social media where he also shared the news of a new baby.

How Does He Make His Money?

With four albums released and a lot of successful singles and EPs, it comes as no surprise to know that Blackbear is financially viable. Some of his singles have garnered millions of views and streams on online audio distribution forums like SoundCloud and Spotify, thereby adding largely to his income.

In a recent interview, Blackbear claims that music isn’t necessarily a business but something he views more as a hobby. Besides music, he has substantial investments in stocks and also holds bitcoins and other crypto-currencies. He also makes some quid styling people at Coachella.

Blackbear’s earnings come not just from the sale of his music. He has collaborated with some very successful acts including Neyo, Mike Posner, Justin Bieber, Rick Ross, Childish Gambino, and Miley Cyrus.

He also makes money from music production. He wrote and produced G-Eazy’s 2014 song “These Things Happen”. He produced Linkin Park’s “Sorry for now” and is also credited with writing Justin Bieber’s hit song “Boyfriend”. A recent estimation conducted in 2019 reveals that the singer is worth $2.5 million.
