Love life and girlfriend
Vincent’s highly secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t shared the details of any women (or men) whom he has perhaps been with. This is why there are various rumors circulating the internet concerning both his past and present affairs, as well as his sexual orientation.
Many people believe that Vincent was romantically linked to Alyson Rae Stoner, an American actress, singer and dancer; she’s perhaps known best for her roles in the series “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody”, “Cheaper by the Dozen” and “Camp Rock”.
The two were apparently seen spending time together many times in 2009 and 2010, however, no evidence has been provided to support the claims of them having been together, nor have Vincent or Alyson commented on the rumors.
There are also those who believe Vincent to be gay, and that this is why he hasn’t spoken of any women whom he’s dated; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of July 2021, Vincent seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Vincent’s a huge dog-lover, and his three pet dogs can be seen featured in some of his Instagram pictures.
Summer is his favorite season – Vincent loves to wear Hawaiian shirts, enjoys going swimming in the ocean, sun tanning at the beach, and playing beach volleyball with his friends.
