Julianne Hough's Husband Brooks Laich Talks about His Sexuality in New Podcast Amid Rumors of Marriage Trouble

Brooks Laich has more details to share concerning his desire to explore more of his sexuality in 2020.

Although it has been a month since he talked about wanting to explore his sexuality, Brooks Laich has decided to clarify his point on an upcoming episode of his podcast, "How Men Think." 

 

According to Pop Culture, the 36-year-old had explained that his wife, Julianne Hough, had inspired his desire to explore his sexuality.

The source added that the reason for their problems was that Brooks couldn't deal with his wife's free-spiritedness and independence.

Since he is no longer an athlete, Brooks shared his belief that he had more time to figure out what worked for him and his wife when he said:

"Sexuality was way below all of that for the majority of my life… I've been exposed to a beautiful new side of life that I'd never explored or thought to explore. It's amazing."

Even though his explanation came when reports claim that his marriage was in trouble, the former athlete added that he was excited to see how his new findings would strengthen his relationship with Julianne.

It is with the heaviest heart that I share with you the passing of our beloved dogs Lexi and Harley. Their tragic passing has left my wife and I heartbroken. Lexi and Harley were not just pets to us, they were our children, and we loved them as such. They were the purest example of love that I have ever seen. They showed me that true love did exist in the world. The way they loved their mom @juleshough and the way she loved them back was the first time I knew that there was hope for me to have love in my life. And they accepted me into their little family, and helped me become a dad for the first time. The past 2 weeks have been filled with tears of sorrow, and tears of joy. The immense pain we feel by their loss is due to the overwhelming love we had for them. Every single beautiful part of them will be missed, but we trust that they are in a better place now, and can still feel their presence in our hearts. I want to thank the many people who have helped see us through the past 2 weeks. The outpouring of love and support we have received from our family and friends has helped heal our hearts. I am eternally grateful for everyone who has held space for my wife and I to grieve and mourn. There are too many names to list, but you all know who you are, and know that we couldn’t have made it through this without each and everyone of you. In the most sincere way possible, thank you very much. Thank you to @kristysowin, @derekhough, and @camilaforeroo for going above and beyond what we could ever imagine asking of you. There simply are no words to express our gratitude, we love you deeply and are so grateful for you. Thank you to my wife for allowing me to share in their world, and trusting me to be their dad. I wasn’t perfect, but I loved them with every ounce of my heart. And thank you Lexi and Harley, for teaching me grace, softening my heart, and showing me love. You are perfect, and may you Rest In Peace. ❤️🐶🐼🐺💑❤️

A post shared by Brooks Laich (@brookslaich) on

Brooks mentioned that he couldn't see himself being married to anybody else than the woman he got hitched to in 2017.

It would be recalled that Brooks had shocked the world in January when he disclosed that one of his 2020 goals was to learn about and "really explore" his sexuality, during an earlier episode of his podcast. 

As it turned out, that wouldn't be the first time that the former professional ice hockey forward would talk openly about his sexuality, as recounted by ET Online.

The site noted that Brooks had previously shared his intent on his Instagram Story back in December 2019. 

As regards the turbulence in his marriage, Fox News pointed out that a source had told People that he and Julianne had been having issues for months.

The source added that the reason for their problems was that Brooks couldn't deal with his wife's free-spiritedness and independence.

The publication, however, noted that a second insider claimed that the couple hasn't thrown in the towel as regards their marriage.

Fans got their first whiff of trouble when they noticed that Julianne had left her ring finger bared when she co-hosted NBC's "New Year's Eve" with Carson Daly.
