There are rumors circulating the internet that Tone was in a relationship with a man in 2015, and several of his fans claim to have spotted Tone with the man. However, the rumors have yet to be confirmed. Just because he was seen with a man does not mean he is gay.
On the other hand, Tone Bell previously revealed that he was dating a girl during his interview with The Atlanta Journal in 2019, but kept the details to himself. Tone was also said to be secretly dating Nina Dobrev, with whom he co-starred in the show, Fam. They played a couple in the series and were so good at it that everyone assumed there was something going on between them. The show was canceled after one season, and Nina and Tone went on to feature in the film, Dog Days, as a couple.
With all of the given information, we agree that Tone does not want to share his personal to the public and there’s definitely a chance that he might be gay. However, the above information isn’t strong enough to confirm his sexuality. Thus, we will have to wait to determine whether he is gay or not. Not to worry, we will surely get back to you as soon as we get any updates about Tone’s sexuality.
