Who is Nicholas Ashe Dating?
You might be surprised to know, but Nicholas Ashe is dating Justice Smith. Though Ashe had never come out as gay in front of his fans or even most of his close ones, he had disclosed the information by mistake.
If we were to get into the details of the relationship, you might be interested. Ashe is known to be a person who likes to keep everything private. Before he had posted about his relationship, he would only post about his show’s promos and trailers. They were all mostly promotional posts.
Back in August 2020, just after a Black Lives Matter protest in New Orleans, Ashe had posted some pictures of him and Smith in the protest. Among all the pictures, there was a particular picture where they were seen kissing. This immediately caught his fans’ attention, and within a day, his personal life was on the headlines. This was the exact thing that Ashe had been trying to avoid.
He said to Oprah Daily that he had never wanted to be that open about his life. However, he just wanted to post a picture of him and someone he loves. As intimidating as it was for him, he was later relieved to see the positive messages from people all over the world.
What made it a bit complicated was that he had not been informed about his sexuality to quite a lot of people. His manager was taken aback by the post and had even offered to help him to cover it up if it was a mistake.
As a result, he had gone off social media and was facing anxiety issues. Though he is back on Instagram, he has shared nothing on his handle. It is quite tragic to see a person who cannot openly flaunt his personal life just because of his sexuality and color.
