Love life and girlfriend. Is he gay?
Unlike his fellow YouTubers and actors, Emmanuel doesn’t like to talk about his private matters, and hasn’t shared any details concerning the women (or men) whom he has perhaps been with. This is why there are rumors circulating the internet, claiming that the social media star is gay, while some fans have even claimed to have seen him spending time with a man, who could perhaps be his boyfriend. No evidence has been provided to support any of these claims, nor has Emmanuel commented on this.
There are also those who claim that he has been in a long-term relationship with his girlfriend for more than five years now, but that he prefers to keep her away from the media’s attention, because of how his fame could affect the relationship; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of June 2021, Emmanuel appears to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
