Is He Gay or Does He Have A Girlfriend?
Kian Lawley may enjoy making gay jokes, however, the social media personality’s sexual orientation is straight and there are a couple of facts to prove this. Since he rose to fame, Kian Lawley has been in a relationship with at least two females. He dated Andrea Russett a fellow YouTube personality.
It is not clear when the two began dating but by mid-2014, they had broken up. Like Lawley, Russett first rose to prominence as a Youtuber thanks to the success of her channel GETTOxFABxFOREVER which boasts over 3 million subscribers. She is now the host on the weekly talk series Apologies In Advance With Andrea Russett and has also dabbled into acting.
The reason for Lawley and Russett’s break-up is not clear, but from their continued friendship since the break-up, it is clear that it was an amicable one. While the two dated, they appeared on each other’s channel and after their split, Russett has appeared on at least two of Lawley’s videos including one titled Kissing my ex.
A couple of years after splitting from Russett, Kian Lawley in 2016 began dating American model and social media personality, Meredith Mickelson.
