Although the sexuality rumors regarding Aladdin actor Billy Magnussen could never be put to rest until he officially speaks about them, his fans would know that he has been dating American actress Meghann Fahy.

The pair attended the 2020 Golden globes afterparty together. And, that’s not all; they share quite a PDA through social media.

So, today, let’s shed light on what has caused Billy Magnussen’s gay rumors in the first place, and also know details of his relationship.

What Might have Originated Billy Magnussen’s Gay Rumors?

While there can be random explanations of what fueled the gay speculation of Billy Magnussen, two major points make sense.

  1. Billy Magnussen’s Theatrical Debut’s Set was Gay Bathhouse

The Woodhaven, New York native, made a theatrical debut through a Terrence McNally’s Broadway show, The Ritz, in 2007. The plot of the drama was set in a gay bathhouse based in Manhattan. 

Since the show was Magnussen’s first theatre appearance, it raised questions if the gay theme had any connection with his personal life. Moreover, it gave a reason for fans to suspect if he was gay.

How was an association with a single show enough to circulate rumors of Billy Magnussen being gay? Well, the show was not the only reason.

Magnussen hardly shared his personal life in the media before 2017. And, he didn’t have any accounts of dating a woman counterpart. So, fans didn’t have anything else to work with, but assume otherwise of his sexuality. And letting fans add on the rumors, Billy also didn’t comment on the matter.

Despite staying mum about the gay speculation, Magnussen revealed his dating relationship with Meghann Fahy. He did so, on 25 July 2017, by tweeting a picture of him kissing Fahy on the neck. The post, later, got followed by several others.

Later, Meghann also started to share love-filled pictures through her Instagram handle, confirming their relationship.
