It is difficult to move forward when there is an imbalance in family relationships. More than most, American political reporter Matt Drudge understands what it’s like to be in a situation where your parents decide to divorce.
Matt was only six years old when his parents ended their marriage. His mother raised him after that.
Furthermore, Matt was frequently described as a loner as a child. It was no surprise that he had to live on his own terms for a while after being abandoned by his own father.
Matt managed to rule the media world with his effective professionalism as a political commentator, picking up the broken pieces with swaying time. He also founded and edited the Drudge Report, an American conservative news aggregation website.
Aside from that, Drudge is well-known for his work as a radio host and TV show host. From June 1998 to November 1999, he hosted Fox News’ Drudge, a Saturday night television show.
Matt was also sued by Clinton presidential aide Sydney Blumenthal during his professional career after he falsely accused Sydney of spousal abuse in a report.
With ups and downs, Matt Drudge has had an enthralling professional career that is still on track. In the meantime, he wrote a book called Deudge Manifesto, which made the New York Times Best Seller list in 2000.

Matt Drudge: Is He Married Or Gay?
With the media publishing news based on ‘rumors,’ it is a difficult task to uncover the truth about a particular topic. The same was true when Matt Drudge was named one of Out Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America in 2009.
According to Out Magazine,
“Despite his refusal to publicly acknowledge his sexuality, the 42-year-old journalist has had a long-term relationship with a male landscape gardener.”
When Washington D.C. landscaper David Cohen spoke to the New York Daily News, he allegedly claimed that he had a long-term relationship with Matt Drudge.
Drudge, on the other hand, put an end to the rumors by responding to Out Magazine’s article and claiming that he was not gay.
Despite Matt’s openness about his sexual orientation, it remains unknown whether Drudge is married or in a relationship. Above all, he appears to be preoccupied with his professional career.
