Who is Jussie Smollett’s partner? That’s one of the top questions on Empire fans’ minds since the release of his debut album, Sum of My Music. The Fox show is still a huge hit, and that means all eyes will be on the Empire star for a while, including his love life! So, just who is Jussie Smollett dating? That’s what fans are dying to know, so keep reading to find out!

Whether you’re a private person or not, people want to know about the personal lives of actors. And Jussie Smollett’s boyfriend in 2018 is something his fans have been wondering about. He’ll be 35 in June and that usually around the time people start asking if you’ll settle down. (The most annoying question in the book!)

Is Jussie Smollett Gay?

If you have to ask, then you’re not a real Empire fan! Public shaming aside, yes, Smollett is gay, and he’s never been shy about it!

As you already know, his character, Jamal, is also openly gay and the show explored his personal struggle.

Who Is Jussie Smollett Dating?

Jussie Smollett’s dating timeline isn’t as long as people think. Between his long hours on set and being in the studio, finding time to date can be hard.

Smollett was once rumored to be dating former NFL player Michael Sam, according to TMZ.

But Smollett kept it real when he squashed the rumors. He said that he wasn’t dating Sam, despite the fact that they were often spotted together publicly in Los Angeles. We guess that rules him out!

The New Album

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Empire star talked about his debut album and its inspiration from his real-life experiences.

Sum of My Music really represents love and reflection and freedom,” Smollett told Entertainment Tonight‘s, Courtney Tezeno. “’HaHa (I Love You)’ is about someone special to me.”

Who could that song be about? Could there be someone special in Smollett’s life?

It certainly sounds that way! But the actor has been tight-lipped on the subject.

The track, “Don’t Go,” also touches on Smollett’s jealous side. So it’s possible that he’s had strong feelings about someone. Is he the jealous type in a relationship?

There’s no word on his dating life so far, and his social media accounts aren’t giving away any clues, either! We can only hope that his love life is a lot better than that of his Empire role.

Until then, we will have to wait and see what happens next for the rising star. But for now, it appears that Jussie Smollett is focused on his love of music.
