When it comes to Mikey’s dating life, he was once in a romantic relationship with Taylor Alesia, a YouTube star; the two dated for a while and even shared their photos all over their social media pages. However, their relationship did not survive the trials of time. and they ended up going their separate ways due to what they termed as personal issues.
Later, Mikey began dating Maggie Linderman, a singer – the lady posted snap chat videos of herself and Mikey cozying up. However, this relationship did not blossom and they also broke up. Currently, Mikey is dating Nicole Anderson, an Instagram sensation with over 110,000 followers; the couple is never shy to show their chemistry to all their fans.
In January this year, Mikey shared a black and white photo of him kissing his girlfriend. To show how their relationship was strong, he added this caption ‘now dis be my baby’. The following month, he took to YouTube in a video and confirmed to all his fans that he was dating Nicole, but also confessed that Nicole did not like him at first. However, after they talked on Snapchat, their romance blossomed.
The two were also seen in March having a good time in Los Angeles, California. Nicole showed off her well-toned body in a beautiful Haoka Swimwear swimsuit, telling all her fans that she had taken up eating healthy meals and working out on a daily basis. Mickey’s sexual orientation is straight, despite rumors that he might be gay. The accusations originated from a photo he posted alongside his best friend Bryce Hall in which he was shirtless, with a caption that said that the two did not take a shower together.
The two share a very strong bond which makes people doubt their relationship. To please the fans, the two are always pretending that they are very close on their YouTube videos. This intimate relationship is what left people with more questions than answers. However, since he has dated women in the past and he has never admitted to being gay, it is only right to conclude that Mikey is straight.
Although most people consider Mikey to be a very social person, this is far from the truth. Although this might sound weird, Mikey is rather scared of people, and avoids going to crowded places such as airports, shopping malls, and concerts. Whenever people stare at him or start talking about him, it makes Mikey very uncomfortable.
In one of his videos, Barone actually confessed that he is always self-conscious about his own appearance, which is why he is always wears long-sleeved clothes even when having fun at the beach. However, despite all that, he has chosen to talk about his life on social media, which is ironic as social media is filled with bullies and mean people who do not hesitate to tear down unsuspecting victims.
Mikey once mentioned that he gets very paranoid about becoming a victim of social media bullying. He could have chosen to become a social media personality to try to ignore all his fear of criticism. He once posted a video on YouTube reading out and laughing at all the hate comments he got on his social media pages.
