Daniel Tosh Wife/Married, Gay
Daniel Tosh has now twice made his fans believe that he is a married man without any proof. The first was in 2014 when he tweeted about how his marriage to his ballerina wife had made his life more beautiful. The post immediately collected many retweets as fans quickly bombarded him with questions.
Tosh didn’t answer any of the questions and left his fans to speculate.
Many of the satirical comedian’s fans got carried away with the thought that the ballerina might be a code name for something else and that Tosh is just his normal silly self.
Two years later, in August 2017, Tosh tweeted again that his ballerina wife said, “The ballerina is a code name for something else;
Many fans asked him to post a photo as proof that he was really married but unlike him, which he didn’t and kept them all in the dark. The truth is that no one can say for sure if Tosh is really married, but if you ask us, it all looks like a joke and just a publicity stunt. For one thing, he was in a relationship before and was seen separated from his girlfriend, more about that in a moment…
Tosh’s single life and his support for LGBTQ rights have forced many of his fans to consider him a gay man. Tosh himself has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors.
Daniel Tosh Girlfriend
Tosh once had a relationship that became public, not with a man. In 2009 Tosh started a relationship with the model and actress Megan Abrigo. The news of their relationship was revealed by Tosh himself after he blasphemed about his comedy special Happy Thoughts.
The couple were spotted separately at various locations, including the Gansevoort South Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. They even performed together at red carpet events. After a while, the duo was no longer seen together in public, as is always the case when celebrities split up.
Neither Tosh nor Abrigo revealed the reason for their separation, but there was a rumor that Tosh’s rude jokes about them might have been one of the factors that led to their separation.
