Is Anthony Kiedis Gay?
The answer is no, he is not gay. Anthony has expressed his liking for women numerous times over the years and has never liked men romantically. So his sexual orientation is straight.
When the homosexual rumors about him began to go around, he respectfully denied it.
How did the gay rumors start?
The talks about his sexuality started when he and his band posed for a gay magazine called “Touch It” in 1984. The band stated that they did it not because they were homosexuals but because they have fans who are in the LGBTQ community.
On the other hand, one of the band members Flea told in The Guardian Interview that he did experiment with other men to find out if he was perhaps into men but it turned out he was also not gay.
“To me, it wasn’t a big deal. I was experimenting and it turns out, ‘hey, I’m not gay.’ So, it’s not really my story.”
So, people often confuse his words with his bandmate and perceive that Kiedis is gay. But that is not the case.

Besides, Heather and Kiedis met at a party in 2004 and started dating after a few months. Unfortunately, the duo called it off officially on June 2008 after having an on-and-off relationship for four years.
Their break up on unfavorable terms caused a custody battle over their son. Anthony lost his son’s custody to his ex-girlfriend but later in 2017, he was rejoined by his son due to the abusive nature of his baby’s mother Christie.
Meanwhile, Anthony has an amazing bond with his son. Despite what he has gone through in his past, he is learning to be a better parent while also making time for his fans.
