Is He Gay?
The Hollywood star has been under speculation regarding his sexuality. The actor is often seen speaking up in favor and rights of gay people and supports the LGBTIQ community.
However, Pej himself is of straight sexual orientation and not gay. His sixteen years-long relationship with the love of his life Naris makes the statement itself.
Who’s Pej Dating?
To the dismay of all the fans' curiosity, Pej has been in a relationship with Naris Attar for over one and a half decades. Who is Naris? She is an internal medicine intern at Massachusetts General Hospital. She attended the University of California, Berkeley and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Molecular and Cell Biology. Later, she got a Doctor of Philosophy(Ph.D.) in Molecular Biology from the University of California, Los Angeles.
Pej has something interesting and weird love story to share. It was love at first sight for him when he saw Naris across the street talking to her friend. It sounds weird and funny but, he told that he almost had dropped his ice cream when he saw her for the first time. He didn’t approach her at the time as he thought he had a zero game. But, for some reason, he couldn’t forget her face after that encounter.
Luckily, the TV star met Naris’s friend the next day. He asked Naris and requested her to give his number to Naris. Two weeks later, he got a call from Naris, and rest of it is history.
Pej and his lady love started dating in 2003, and the couple already celebrated their 16th anniversary on 20 July 2019.
