Patrick Mahomes’ sexuality is straight; he is not Gay. The Kansas City Chiefs star is married to Brittany Mathews, his high school sweetheart.
Rumors about Mahomes’ sexuality made the rounds despite his being in an obvious relationship with Mathews even before they got married. The quarterback would not be the first to be met with rumors of being gay despite having not recorded antecedents that point to such.
How Did the Rumors About Patrick Mahomes Sexuality Start?
No traceable record shows how the rumors about Mahomes’ sexuality started, but the rumors had been there long before he married Brittany Mathews. Some have attributed the rumors to the fact that his brother Jackson Mahomes has had these rumors spread about him for some time.
The rumors about Jackson being gay started first because he looks and sounds a lot more feminine than many expect of a man. The fact that he makes very flamboyant videos on his youtube did not help the rumors in any way. When Jackson tried to refute the rumors, he made a video stating that he was neither gay nor attracted to girls.
The video made matters worse as it only convinced fans that he was still in denial and in the closet. Many advised him to own up to his true identity and come out. Others reacted by trolling him and making the butt of many dirty and gay jokes.
Unfortunately, the trolling and anti-gay slurs were also extended to his brother Patrick who, from every indication, is straight. At first, Patrick did not pay heed to the rumors, and when he did respond to them, he joked about it, saying “Yes I do take it up the butt sometimes, especially from teammates”.
Patrick Mahomes Is Married to Brittany Mathews

Mahomes and Mathew Met and Started Dating as Teenagers
The timeline of Mahomes’ relationship with Mathews started as far back as when they were teenagers in high school. Mahomes often remembers going to Mathews’ parents’ house for dinner and feeling awkward. They attended prom together in 2013 when he was 18.
Mathews graduated first and moved on to the University of Texas at Tyler, while Mahomes graduated a year later and enrolled at Texas Tech University. The distance notwithstanding, they remained committed to each other and the relationship.
Their long-distance hurdle was helped by the fact that they were both athletes. This gave them a lot of things in common and helped them build understanding and tolerance for each other’s demanding collegiate athletic schedules. Mathews played Soccer in college and signed to play with Afturelding/Fram, the Icelandic professional soccer team in the same year that the Kansas City Chiefs drafted Mahomes.
