Romance Fuels Gay Rumors, Boyfriend Soothes Fire?

Moreover, she also acted as a gay surgeon-in-training, Tyra Dupre in the set of CW's Emily Owens, M.D. While she appears as a lesbian romancing in the screens, many of her fans doubt if she is gay in real as well. 

The gay rumors got fueled with the low-keyness Kelly has maintained in her personal life as well. The details of her dating any boyfriend has not surfaced out to the media yet. She has also not been romantically linked with any men in the past.

So, it's apparent that she doesn't have a boyfriend to get married or just sway the gay rumors away.

But the absence of a man in her life doesn't mean that she is gay in real because she has confirmed the rumors herself. It would also be inappropriate to tag someone with such labels without their permissions.  

Perhaps, Kelly is just focused on her budding career than to focus on family life and relationship duties for now.
