Remember the song “Crush”? Yes, the one that goes, “But I know this crush ain’t going away e yeah.. e yeah.. eyeah.. eyeah”. It was the song that put the name, David Archuleta on the Billboard chart back in 2009.
Fast forward to 2021, David again took to the major spotlight; but this time, not for his musical talent, rather David opened up about his sexuality and came out as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.
So, who is his partner? Is David gay, and does he have a husband or a wife? Keep reading to find all about it.
Is David Archuleta Gay?
Yes, David Archuleta is gay. Although he first came out as “gay” to his family in 2015, he then had feelings for both genders, suggesting he might be “bisexual.” But he later went on to find himself not having “too much sexual desires and urges as most people.” So, he labeled himself to be “asexual”.
Overall, David has recognized himself in three phases: from coming out as “gay” to learning he was “bisexual” to finding himself to be “asexual”.
Talking more about his sexuality, David confessed that it was “uncomfortable” for him to share this personal aspect of his life. But, he wanted to help people in a similar situation and encourage them. Moreover, he wanted people to know that choosing between being LGBTQIA+ and believing in God shouldn’t be an option.
David Archuleta Partner, Husband

But what about his partner? Well, David was a shy guy who didn’t like talking much about his dating life. However, he was open about his “commitment” to “save himself” until marriage. Guess, his partner would be someone who’d respect his wish for abstinence and someone preferably “asexual”.
Did you know: In 2015, David once tweeted, “Love is nourished by the coming of children, who spring from the fountain of love…expressed between a man and a woman in marriage,” and obviously fans weren’t having it.

Talking about his dating history, David’s first known girlfriend was Hagood Coxem, whom he dating in 2008 but they split soon after. Then, he dated Jackie Castro for a year until they parted ways in early 2009.
