For more than a decade, there has been speculation about the sexual tastes of Hollywood actor Shemar Moore. Here's a look at his dating profile.


Shemar Moore boasts beautiful and perfect features but has never been married. As such, his love life exposed him to rumors of him being gay.

"I just think it's nonsense," he told BET about the rumors of his alleged homosexuality. "If you're gay, you're gay. I'm not, and I know it. I am very comfortable with who I am and I love women. I have come out with many of them."



Moore is very active on social networks. At the beginning of 2016, comments and assumptions about him and a male friend with whom he was traveling in Canada appeared on Instagram.

The actor further defended his sexual orientation, claiming that as an actor, he is friendly with fans and takes photos with those who ask. Therefore, standing beside a gay man does not automatically make him gay.

Moore is currently a bachelor and has never been married.



During his career, Moore dated several high-profile women in Hollywood, including singer Toni Braxton. Moore was still young when he fell for Braxton, being fresh out of college and starting his career on "Young and the Restless."

In an interview, Moore revealed that the singer called his agent while shooting in Miami and sparks flew from then on. At that time, he felt like he won the lottery with the artist.

However, Moore confessed that Braxton never sang for him, which became bothersome. After their relationship ended, Moore went on to date other women.



The "S.W.A.T." star then briefly dated Hollywood actress Halle Berry after a few years and admitted that he fell hopelessly in love with her. Many people knew that they used to date, but at that time they had to keep it a secret since it was shortly after Halle's divorce.

The former couple had many similarities, which naturally drew them together. Despite the short-lived romance, Moore called it a "necessary experience." He added:

"It made me much stronger as a man, and knowing the caliber of woman I want in the future."



When Moore and Kirsten Vangness, who plays Penelope Garcia on "Criminal Minds," became an on-screen couple, fans began to speculate about their real-life status.

The dynamic duo had different personalities on the show, which shocked viewers when they saw their chemistry. However, it was their real-life friendship that brought strength to their characters.


Moore is currently a bachelor and has never been married. Although the speculation about his sexual orientation persists, the real reason behind his civil status is the actor's busy schedule.

Previously, Moore shared his plans to get married and have children. However, he is also in love with his career and wants a balance between both.

With his undeniably perfect physique and great personality, which are both apparent on his social media, Moore can certainly win any woman's heart, whether it's now or in the future.
