Debunking Chace Crawford Gay Rumors
Rumor of Chace Crawford being gay was at their height in 2008 after he was reported kissing his co-star Ed Westwick. Those rumors lacked potential backup after Crawford's dating life came clear on the Internet. He was already dating singer Carrie Underwood at that time.
2008 was when the actor's breakthrough series, Gossip Girl, was garnering peak attention. Meanwhile, reports on Crawford kissing his Gossip Girl co-star Ed Westwick emerged online at the same time. The gay rumor got further aggravated by Westwick and Crawford's lived together under the same roof since 2007. The rumors could be the reason why Westwick moved out from the place in 2009
Before Westwick, Crawford speculated about dating the former NSYNC singer JC Chasez. Later, the speculating publicists came forward to debunk the rumor and called it untrue.
Because of the rumors, Crawford had to explain his identity on every platform he appeared. In a chat with Metro in 2008, he laughed off the suggestion related to his sexual orientation and even added his humor, stating he wouldn't have been successful if it was not for the gay rumor. He also clarified that he was never romantically involved with the NSYNC singer.
Furthermore, In the live finale of Randy Jackson Present: America's Best Dance Crew, Crawford called the gay rumors annoying and added that though the rumors started as funny, they later got him annoyed and stressed. He was always adamant that he was straight and had every right to make same-sex friends without anyone making assumptions about his sexuality on every show or portal he appeared.
Because rumors do not stop with just confrontation by the person who is the subject of the rumor, reports on Crawford's dating history "with women" could only halt all the annoyance he went through.
