Love life and boyfriend
Erin is highly secretive when it comes to her love life, and hasn’t spoken of any men or women whom she has perhaps been with. This is probably why there are various rumors circulating the internet, most of which concern her sexual orientation and current relationship status.
Many of Erin’s fans believe the popular actress to be a lesbian, claiming that this is why she hasn’t mentioned any men whom she has dated; a fan has even claimed to have seen Erin spending time at a club in Los Angeles with a woman who could perhaps be her girlfriend, but no evidence has been provided to support this, nor has Erin commented on the matter.
There are also those who believe that she’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity British man, but prefers to keep him away from media; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
