The openly gay actor who turned out to be transgender is dating a new boyfriend, sources have claimed. According to an insider, the former pornographic film actor was seen with a new guy earlier this year. The actor was said to have been going out with the anonymous man but the identity of his latest partner is yet to be revealed. Though the informants have guaranteed the new fling of the Crocker with his mystery boyfriend, Crocker himself has not said anything yet and the actor cum singer seemed to be hiding his new beau from the media.
When it comes to Crocker’s personal life, everything is more public than private. As all of us know that garnering popularity and fame in Hollywood is not as easy as we expect. But for Chris Crocker, fame was something that came knocking at his door.
The American Internet celebrity, blogger, songwriter, recording artist and former pornographic film actor didn’t have to work hard to gain the ultimate popularity in show business. The infamous celebrity became known worldwide with his video, “Leave Britney Alone” which went viral within the first day of its release.
The video became an instant hit after its release in September 2007. The singer cum songwriter is seen crying frantically in the two minutes long video as he defends the pop diva Britney Spears' comeback performance at the MTV Video Music Awards tearfully. The video received over four million views in two days. But despite getting much needed attention from the general public, him and his video was criticized and made fun of. Hundreds of parodies have been made satirizing the video.
The internet celebrity’s absurdity didn’t end after the release of the viral video. The actor who defines himself as openly gay and a transgender appeared in a pornographic film for Chi Chi LaRue in 2011 and later made his adult debut in October 2012 for Maverick Men. His hunger for public attention didn’t stop just there. The recording artist’s porn movie called Chris Crocker's Raw Love was released. The film featured Crocker and his former boyfriend Justin Dean romancing with each other.
After the movie was made the couple broke up. The actor blames the Leave Britney Alone video and his work in the porn movie industry for his doomed dreams of pursuing his career as a professional actor. He says that despite people’s claims that the video was the way for Crocker to garner coveted fame in Hollywood, he thinks that if he had gone to LA instead as an unknown actor, he would have gotten more work.
The proud transgender might have spilt with his beau Justin Dean after his fruitless attempt in the porn film industry, but Dean is not the only one whom he has dated. Talking about his other romantic affairs, the famous blogger was allegedly in a romantic relationship with American singer-songwriter, make-up artist, fashion designer and model Jeffree Star. The couple reportedly dated from 2005 to 2009. After the spilt the internet personality went out with Dean. But as mentioned before, the relationship didn’t last for long.
And now the rumors about his recent romantic hook up with his secret boyfriend has excited the fans of “Leave Britney Alone” fame. However, his Instagram and Twitter account speak a different story. The blogger is seen sharing pictures of him enjoying his single life. But if the rumors are indeed true, we hope to see pictures of the love birds online pretty soon.
