Ian Jeffrey is an American model and influencer best known for being the younger brother of beauty mogul, James Charles. He was born on December 17, 2001, in Bethlehem, New York, as Ian Dickinson before adopting his now-famous stage name. Jeffrey’s father worked as a contractor while his mother was a stay-at-home wife. Both his parents are very supportive of his fashion career and his older brother’s YouTube ventures.

Jeffrey’s debut in the public eye happened when he was featured in a James Charles video titled, “Little Brother Does My Makeup!” At that time, he was finishing his secondary education at Bethlehem High School. As a teenager, Jeffrey was interested in sports and played on the basketball team. However, when he graduated he decided to take a different path.
Since his first official appearance, Jeffrey has been making fantastic first impressions in the modeling world. Thanks to his brother’s popularity, he was given a leg up in the industry and landed sweet deals with brands such as Gucci, Levi, Bottega, and Balmain. While most fans would accuse Jeffrey of being a “nepo brother,” he did have the looks and the talent to make up for the privilege. He is currently under Creative Talent, a New York-based agency and has also worked with IMG Models.
Unlike his more famous brother, Jeffrey keeps a relatively low profile. But with his interests in acting and ever-growing social media presence, the budding superstar is bound to have his fair share of controversies. People have already questioned his appearance and his sexuality. So, is Ian Jeffrey gay? Here’s what fans have been dying to know.

Ian Jeffrey’s Sexuality
Like most models, Jeffrey boasts a unique androgynous look, meaning that he resembles both masculine and feminine qualities. However, his fluid look has only drawn speculation regarding his sexuality. Many people also assume that just because his older brother is openly gay, then it must mean that Jeffrey is gay as well. Although the young model appeared in James Charles’ YouTube videos, it’s unfair to label him as gay.

It’s important to note that Jeffrey himself has never talked about his sexuality. And when people look into his dating history, they will quickly learn that he’s only been in one relationship.
From 2018 to 2019, Jeffrey had a short-lived affair with singer and influencer, Loren Gray. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Gray shared that she met the model through his brother and that he was inspiring her new songs. Unfortunately, their lives were very different and the couple would break up before the year was over. While the real reason for the split is unknown, Gray has insisted that the duo remain good friends.
The singer has since moved on with fellow artist Kyle Deloera. Meanwhile, Jeffrey is believed to be single and is keeping to himself.
Is Ian Jeffrey Gay?
No, Ian Jeffrey is not gay. He was last reported to be dating Loren Gray in 2019 but has been single ever since. Jeffrey was rumored to be gay due to his physical appearance and by association with his openly gay brother, but he has never confirmed his true sexuality publicly. At this point, fans assume the model to be straight.
