Dancing With The Stars performer Derek Hough allegedly got into an argument with a fan trying to take his photo while dancing at Jam, a gay bar in Salt Lake City. Gay rumors have followed Derek Hough for years, according to Radar Online, but the professional dancer has always maintained that he is heterosexual.
Derek Hough,27, allegedly “freaked out” when a fan dancing near him at the gay bar tried to capture a photo with the Dancing With The Stars celebrity, according to details of the alleged encounter republished by Radar Online. Hough is reportedly dating Katherine Jenkins, an opera singer who was not with him at the Salt Lake City gay bar.
“I’m a big fan or Derek’s and I always thought or hoped he was gay,” Ken Lee, a regular at Jam told the media after the alleged photo taking incident. “Seeing him shimmying with his buddies at the gay club wearing skintight, shiny silver pants just made me mind scream!”
The DWTS cast member was apparently having a good time dancing at the gay bar until approached for a photo. According to Ken Lee’s accounting of the incident, Derek Hough became “fidgety” and told him not to take his photo there, at the gay bar.
“Well, he couldn’t have been more rude or a bigger diva. I was like, OK, he’s clearly not comfortable about having his picture taken in a gay bar. If you’re not gay, then what’s the problem? Derek’s behavior is very suspect. Derek very well may not be gay but he sure dressed pretty and threw an impressive hissy fit when I asked for a photo,” Ken Lee concluded about the alleged Derek Hough gay bar hoopla.
Derek Hough has answered questions about his sexual preference publicly before and once told a journalist that he has been called gay frequently because he is a dancer. The Dancing With The Stars celebrity has not commented about his visit to the Salt Lake City gay bar or the verbal altercation with a fan about taking his photo on the Jam dance floor.
