Queer Eye stars Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness are close confidants, but the pair is not an item, despite what their costar Karamo Brown had to say.
In a new report from Us Weekly, an insider close to the crew revealed that Brown's recent joke about the pair was just that — a joke. "Antoni and Jonathan are very, very close, but are not boyfriends," the source said. Speculation started when Van Ness took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 30) to share a photo of the trio backstage of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which saw Poroski looking at Van Ness with a cheek-to-cheek smile and Brown flipping off the camera in the background. "These pics are so cute I posted another one. I love my Antoni bae & @karamo jealousy doesn’t look good on you," Van Ness captioned the shot. Brown hit back at the playful dig, writing, "Hahahahaha I love you both! And for all who are asking. It’s real. They are a couple and in love. First Fab 5 couple."
Afterward, Van Ness replied to the comment, writing, "@karamo you suck," alongside three laughing crying emojis and then that's when the speculation and likes to the comment went into overdrive. For those of you that ship the romance, you can revel in this Instagram account that is entirely dedicated to photos of the pair together.
In late December 2018, it was reported that Van Ness and boyfriend Wilco Froneman split after a brief relationship. The former implied that the rugby player had cheated on him in a since-deleted caption. As for Porowski, the star broke up with Joey Krietemeyer in 2018 after seven years of dating.
