Billy Gilman is one of the fan-favorite contestants on The Voice this season and tonight is part 1 of the finale. Gilman was a child music star and now he has re-branded himself as an openly gay man in the industry. In 2014, he says he was blackmailed over his sexuality by a reporter and he decided to come out to the public. When he made the announcement online, he said he was worried that coming out would affect his career, stating that: It's difficult for me to make this video, not because I'm ashamed of being a gay male artist or a gay artist or a gay person. But it's pretty silly to know that I'm ashamed of doing this knowing that because I'm in an genre and industry that is ashamed of me for being me ... In recent years when I came back to Nashville, there were rumors and whispers, you know, "Is he, or isn’t he?" I love the industry but many know being a gay male country artist is not the best thing. He continued: So I thank you for your support, and I know some people won’t agree with this, and that’s OK, to each his own. But I felt it was time for me to be honest and to be truthful. So, what's going on with Gilman's love life today? Is he married? No, Gilman is not married, but he is reported to be dating a man named Christopher Meyer.
