Atlanta millionaire and reality star Todd Chrisley can’t shake the gay rumors. His flamboyant nature and enthusiasm regarding fashion has triggered rumblings about his sexuality for year and they are only growing stronger as his USA reality show “Chrisley Knows Best” is set to debut on March 11. The reality star addressed the rumors in an interview with PEOPLE published on March 10.

Despite being married 18 years with five children, the rumors about Chrisley’s sexuality have never really ceased. But the millionaire maintains he is content with whom he is and assures there is no closet to come out of.

“There’s no coming out. What people see is what you get. I am what I am. Other people’s opinions of me are just not my business.”

People will get a lot more of Chrisley and his family when his reality show debuts. His daughter, making light of the rumors, told him to prepare to become a gay pop icon. He may have no choice, but at 45 years old, he is content with his family and his position in life and has no problem addressing the rumors head on.

When a man Tweeted a message to him asking when he is going to come out the closet, he not only gave a response, but turned it back onto the man.

“I said, ‘I don’t live in a closet, but if you’d like me to escort you out of yours I’m happy to do so.’ All of a sudden the Tweet went away and he took it down because I flipped the script on him.”

Todd Chrisley doesn’t care what others opinions are of him. He is, however, flattered that people care about what goes on in his bedroom.
