Derek Hough and Mark Ballas Buy Home Together – Gay Couple Alert?

Derek Hough and Mark Ballas Buy Home Together - Gay Couple Alert?

Dancing With the Stars pros Mark Ballas and Derek Hough have been friends since childhood. They trained in ballroom dancing in Europe together and lived together for years as kids. As adults we have seen them present themselves as best friends and even took their acoustic band on the road to play some gigs. I mean, they are tight and make no secret of it. But do men that are pushing 30 buy a comfy home in the Hollywood Hills together?

According to TMZ, Hough and Ballas both chipped in on a private 1.275 million house that has all of the posh amenities plus a spa built for two. The single master bedroom also boasts a connecting bath with dual his and his sinks. It seems to be the perfect starter home for a celeb couple with a bunch of cash. So what’s the deal here? If they were two other guys I’d figure maybe they are rarely in town at the same time and it’s the perfect party house but Hough and Ballas are hardly known for being party animals.

They also aren’t exactly linked to very many Hollywood hotties and let’s face it, either of these guy could probably easily bag any woman he sets his sights on. Sources seem to be hinting that there is a DL relationship between them that has spanned years and various flirtations with women. Do you think it’s possible that at this point they are ready to just settle in once and for all and they don’t care what people think? Or is this situation being totally misread? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

    They’re brothers. Marks parents raised Derek from when he was 12 years old. Do some research first before posting.

      Oh, please! Come out of your denial and grow up!

    Mark Ballas has a well documented history of one girlfriend after another. He has been with singer-songwriter BC Jean for over a year. He clearly is NOT gay. Can’t stand Derek so won’t speak to his sexuality-no idea. Both men own real estate already, so I would assume this is an investment property and not a love nest as TMZ would like to insinuate.

    Let me take a moment to laugh at Nina PR Dobrev’s campaign last September/October.
    Um don’t know why these boys wouldn’t set up a home with one of their regular “girls and dates they’re always seen with” that everyone claims they have. Especially Mark. Has a GF for over a year you say? She must be thrilled. If it looks, walks and quacks like a duck, it is a duck.

    Look so tired of deception. I was married for eight years and thought of as being a stud, yeah, really. Then I could stand the lie no longer, my wife deserved more, oh, I was trying to be straight is why I married besides of all the other hardships that came by in the 70;s 80’s, anyway I know all of the tricks guys can pull to be thought of as straight. The latest be tattoos everywhere, before that all “males” must have some type of facial hair, for years a very “must” today to be manly. Mark has done all of that, the bf Derek went from clean cut to the “now” must look to be “the man” Come Ryan, Justin, Derek, Mark lets be honest, yeah I know It can be difficult, but just think you don’t have to hide anymore !

    They’re gay…..this woman’s gaydar, knows they are gay, but it’s no big deal…they just need to come out of the closet, to the rest of us.

  • Evan1407

    Let’s see. Hmm. Two thirtyish dancers, unmarried, buying a home together. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure this one out.

  • Evan1407

    Many people have heard that Julianne Hough was a beard so that Ryan could have a relationship with her brother. It’s been hinted at on many websites. It doesn’t seem so far fetched to me.

  • Tessa

    Mark Ballas has been dating BC Jean for a year. Check your facts.

  • ReneeDeborah

    Why does it matter one way or another? All they owe us is their professionalism and a good spin around the dance floor!

    So I’m guessing that any roommates, college or otherwise, are gay? Stop jumping to conclusions about everyone like you tabloids love to do, you’re a disgrace.
