Rodrigo Alves’ Sexuality

Human Ken doll, Rodrigo, has previously shared his thoughts on sexuality, revealing that “people shouldn’t be forced to identify as a particular gender”.

The man, who spent almost £500,000 on various surgery procedures to look like Ken doll, has also previously said that he is asexual, meaning he has no sexual feelings or desires.

However, on day one of Celebrity Big Brother, Rodrigo was seen flirting with Ben Jardine in the bedroom. As Ben walked away, Rodrigo asked Chloe Ayling: “Is he gay?”.

Rodrigo also said to Chloe: “I am openly gay, darling.”

Ben Jardine’s Ex-wife

Ben supposedly cheated on wife Stephanie with another woman, which is why they broke up.

In a string of emotional videos on Instagram, Stephanie addressed the issue.

Stephanie said: I started to shake as I opened my phone and clicked on a link someone had sent. There was my husband sitting there laughing and joking about how he had cheated on me and we were getting divorced.

I literally fell to my knees. I was shaking like a leaf and sobbing so hard that my friend started to panic. There was just too much to process. He was divorcing me. He had cheated on me.”
