Love life and girlfriend

Some of his fans believe that the popular YouTuber is gay, and that this is why he hasn’t spoken of the girls whom he has dated.
A fan has also claimed to have seen Duke and an unidentified man spending time together, and that the two might be in a relationship, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Duke commented on this.
There are also those who think that he’s perhaps today in a relationship with a non-celebrity American girl, but that he prefers to keep her away from media because of how his popularity on the internet might affect the relationship, and vice versa; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
