RUMORED TO BE DATING SOMEONE ELSE

Though Tonioli is said to be dating Schanne, the "Dancing With the Stars" judge was linked to a 29-year-old British model called Matt Law. The pair, however, denied rumors of a romance and stated that they were just close friends.

OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT

Though Tonioli and Schanne have been together for about a decade, they are rarely seen together in public and have successfully kept their relationship out of the public eye.

While it might appear odd that Tonioli keeps his love life private, it comes as no surprise to many who are familiar with his story. During an interview with Mirror, he once admitted that he was bullied while growing up.

A ROUGH CHILDHOOD

Tonioli explained that he received several threats because of his sexuality and recalled getting labeled "the queer." According to him, that was one of the worst things to be called in Italy back then. 

All of this, however, changed when Tonioli became famous. The dance star explained that getting rich and famous made people more accepting of his identity.

Though this is mostly a good thing, Tonioli explained that he wished it was not so. According to him, people should be accepted for who they are, regardless of fame and money.

SCHANNE'S PARTNER IS WEALTHY

While Tonioli might not want to be respected primarily because of his money, it is essential to note that he has a lot of it. As of 2017, the dance star was reportedly raking in £250,000 for his appearance on the UK dance show, "Strictly Come Dancing."

Also, Tonioli was said to be earning a sum of £880,000 per season for every season he served as a judge on "Strictly Come Dancing." Though not much is known about their love, there is no doubt that Tonioli and Schanne have a great relationship and are committed to making each other happy.
