Is Bruno Mars Gay? Here Are 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Him 

Since from the early 2010s, one would almost always see the question; is Bruno Mars gay? on various online platforms. Interest on his sexuality has been something that has been ongoing since 2012 when a report was made on April 1 by CNN website, claiming that the powerful singer had come out as gay in a radio interview.

Of course, he has since come out to deny any of such claims but many years later, regardless of the fact that it was an April 1st report, the sexuality of the singer has still been subjected to a whole lot of speculations. So what is his real sexual orientation?

Is Bruno Mars Gay?

Since 2012 when the April fool’s day report was made claiming he was gay, Bruno Mars immediately got his reps to dismiss the news as something completely not true. Beyond that, he also demanded that CNN take down the report.

What gave a little credence to the claim then, was that he was it coincided with the singer’s appearance on the cover of Playboy magazine’s ‘Sex And Music’ issue. Even though he was flanked by female model on the cover of the magazine, the timing was found as rather interesting for some.

Although the question regarding his sexual orientation will remain in the media for a long time, the singer has openly stated that he is straight. More so, he has never been linked to any male in the past in terms of relationship. But beyond his sexuality, here are other things to know about the Finesse Singer:

1. He has had a consistent relationship for many years

With questions always asked about his sexuality, Mars has been in a relationship with his girlfriend, Jessica Caban. The singer and the Puerto Rican actress and model have been dating since 2011. By 2012, they had already started living together and they have remained a close couple since then.

2. Parents

Bruno was born as one of the six kids of his parents; Bernadette San Pedro Bayot and Peter Hernandez. Unfortunately, he did not have both his parents in his life while he was growing up as their marriage came to an end when he was only a little kid.

While his mother was of Spanish and Filipino descent and was born in Manila, Philippines, his father is part Ashkenazi Jewish and part Puerto Rican. In 2013, Bruno lost his mother to a brain aneurysm. She was 55 at the time.

3. How he got his name

At birth, the 24K Magic singer was named Peter Gene Hernandez. But then, his father nicknamed him Bruno as a result of his striking resemblance to the late American-Italian professional wrestler, Bruno Sammartino.

4. Siblings

Although it always seems that Mars only has sisters, he also has a brother, Eric Hernandez who is the oldest sibling. His other siblings are Jaime Khailani, Tiara, Tahiti, and Presley Hernandez. The siblings enjoy a close friendship among themselves.

5. He is not the only singer in the family

As a result of his overwhelming success as a singer, Bruno Mars seems to easily sink other singers close to him to a point that it is only his voice that one will hear. Nonetheless, he is not the only singer in his family. His sisters are all into music as a part of the all-girl group, Lylas (Love You Like a Sister). The group was first formed in 2013 and it late had its reality TV show, but its success is still dwarfed by the achievement of Bruno.

What is more interesting is that it is not only the kids that have a love for music; while their father was once a member of a rock band, their mother was also a singer and dancer.
