David Bromstad’s Love life
The openly gay star of reality television has maintained a low profile when it comes to his personal life, leaving it uncertain who he might be romantically involved with at present. David Bromstad’s marital status is not applicable, given that he is gay. His connection with Jeffrey Glasko began on a noteworthy Valentine’s Day encounter in 2004 at a pub in Orlando’s Firestone establishment.
This event was part of an all-singles mixer, a gathering for potential partners. While David had harbored an interest in Glasko for quite some time, he finally mustered the courage to approach him during the Firestone event in Orlando. The two hit it off immediately and embarked on a partnership that spanned nearly a decade. Among David Bromstad’s boyfriends, Jeffrey Glasko holds a prominent place due to their enduring relationship.
However, after close to ten years, David and Jeffrey chose to end their relationship, surprising many who had anticipated a more permanent connection, possibly even marriage, given Glasko’s recognition as David Bromstad’s significant other, thanks to their deep bond. The decision came as a shock because the two seemed inseparable. The termination of the relationship stemmed from concerns over David’s struggles with alcohol and substance abuse. Unbeknownst to the public, there were complexities beneath the surface.
Behind closed doors, various undisclosed issues were brewing. Jeffrey eventually took legal action against David, asserting that they had entered into an oral cohabitation agreement akin to a marriage, and they had also jointly owned a property. Court documents reveal that Jeffrey contended that David had left him emotionally and financially scarred. Allegations were made that David Bromstad had been heavily involved in excessive drinking, promiscuity, and drug use, depleting their shared savings to fuel his indulgences.
Unfortunately for Jeffrey, his claims were dismissed by a judge due to insufficient evidence. The legal system did not find his assertions substantiated.
