Famous American guitarist, composer, and musician Dave Navarro has dominated the rock music scene for more than three decades. Navarro, who was born in Santa Monica, California, on June 7, 1967, started playing the guitar when he was 12 years old and immediately showed incredible talent.
Navarro’s musical career began when he joined the group Jane’s Addiction in 1986. Navarro joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of the best-known rock bands of all time, in 1993. This was after Jane’s Addiction quickly rose to prominence during the alternative music trend of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Navarro is known not only for his musical talent but also for his unique sense of style and his tattoos, which cover most of his body. Using his platform to promote mental health awareness and care, he has been transparent about his battles with addiction and mental health issues.
Dave Navarro has had several high-profile romantic relationships throughout his career. The musician has been married three times and has dated numerous famous women. This might be the reason why there are rumors about the musician’s sexuality.
The question is, is Dave Navarro gay? Read on to find out the answers.

In the late 1990s, Navarro married Tania Goddard, a well-known American makeup artist and a beautician. The couple was married for three years before their divorce in 1993. The couple didn’t have any children in this three-year relationship, which made it a lot easier for them.
Dave Navarro was also married to Rhian Gittins in 1994. But the marriage only lasted for less than one month. Nothing much is known about Gittins except being the ex-wife of Navarro.
His third marriage was with Carmen Electra, an American actress, model, singer, and media personality. The two were together for four years and even had their own reality show. They had documentation on their courtship “Carmen & Dave: An MTV Love Story” and also their wedding “Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen and Dave,” which aired on MTV in 2004.
Their marriage lasted for three years, and they called it quits in 2007. Electra’s representative described the divorce as ‘amicable’. They didn’t have any children. Navarro confirmed and addressed their split on his website:
Aside from those three failed marriages, Dave Navarro also dated numerous women throughout his career. Naming a few are Taylor Wayne, Jenna Jameson, Kendra Jade, Izabella Miko, Daisy De La Hoya, Margaret Cho, Stormy Daniels, Kelly Carlson, Jessica Jaymes, Jenna Presley, Courtney Love, Jenny Spain, Brooke Haven, Izabella Miko, Daisy De La Hoya, Margaret Cho, Stormy Daniels, Kelly Carlson, Tammy Donaldson and Jasmine Lennard (who formerly dated Simon Cowell).
