Tonioli's portfolio includes collaborations with the likes of Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, and Elton John. Although he has homes in different countries, his main residence is in West London.
PERSONAL LIFE OVER THE YEARS
Over the years, Toniolo has dated a few men, including Matt Law, Paul, and Jason Schanne. However, he once explained that he prefers to sleep in a separate room from his partner.
Toniolo's new look comes follows in line with many other celebrities who are unable to stick to their usual hair coloring, cutting, or styling routine. What do you think of his silver fox hair?
