Is He Dating A Gay Partner Or Married To A Wife?
The question of whether Dylan is gay or straight is constantly on the minds of so many including the media and his fans all over. This is likely due to the fact that the tall, handsome actor who is fast approaching 40, has remained unmarried with no known on-going relationships.
There are no pieces of evidence to prove that he is gay or straight as he has managed to keep his love life out of the view of prying eyes. Some close friends and family among other sources have refuted claims that he is gay but they all maintain that he is unmarried.
Coming down to Bruce himself, he has not for once spoken of his love life, provided updates as regards his relationships or made any comment about his sexual preference.
