He is one of the prominent faces in news and broadcast industry and his applaudable work and devotion for the news industry, especially for the ABC news is highly appreciable. Ladies and gentleman, he's the famous anchor, David Muir.

For such a dynamic personality, getting tagged as a "gay" is quite outrageous. As exposed as he seems on screens, his personal life is pretty wrapped up.

He's not been linked with any woman so far and realizing this many are labeling David Muir to be gay!!

Rumored to be gay many times, Muir, host of ABC News is not dating anyone: No news of wife or girlfriend, leaving all their fans scratching their heads with a big question.

So, today let's take a moment to know all the details about him including his career and net worth.                   

David Muir maybe not gay, Kate Dries, so-called Girlfriend?

It's definitely not funny to use the power of media and sources to write about someone's personal life and claim that he/she is your partner.

But the Deputy Editor of Gizmodo Media Group, Gawker Media, Kate Dries has no fear as in one of her article she wrote that David Muir is her BOYFRIEND!!!

So does this mean David Muir is not gay??

This sure caused quite a buzz in the media and we're bit confused that whether she's pulling off a stunt for popularity or she's addressing rumors of David being gay by telling people that she's dating him.

In her article, she started off stating,

"This is as hard for me to write as it is for you to read, but I’ve just learned—in a public forum, no less—that my boyfriend, ABC News anchor David Muir, is a, quote-unquote, monster."

"David and I connected right from the start. “I thought Peter Jennings was the James Bond of the evening news,” he told me on our first date. I tried to remain calm because (little did he know) Peter was my first love and I didn’t want to make David feel uncomfortable."

She even claimed that the alleged pair has been going on romantic vacations and trips together and she was the one who took pictures of handsome anchor David Muir.

Although Kate boldly stated that she's dating David, David, on the other hand, is tight-lipped about his personal life and super busy interviewing all the renowned personalities including America's President Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney and so on.

Coming back to his secret girlfriend, we speculate that David is not dating Kate Dries as both have not come forward together as a couple and perhaps, David is already married and hiding his wife inside the closet, or is he the one hiding inside the closet??
