Lil Nas X has found love with ‘someone special’ after dating a string of ’emotionally unavailable men’.

The musician, 22, has spoken out about his new boyfriend, claiming he’s found ‘the one’.

He said: ‘I’ve had some good boyfriends and some bad ones. A lot of them were emotionally unavailable or had a lot of insecurity and whatnot.

‘I’ve found someone special now. I think this is the one. I can’t explain it – it’s just a feeling.’

Lil Nas also opened up on discovering he was gay when he was five, after he realised he had a crush on his half-sister’s cousin.

He explained: ‘I had feelings for my sister’s cousin – we have different dads. I was like, “Oh, my God, he’s really cute”, and thought that about a lot of other boys my age.’

However, the singer didn’t get into his first committed relationship until he turned 18.

Speaking to Variety magazine’s Power of Young Hollywood issue, he said: ‘I was 18, I believe. Before that, there was a guy who wasn’t my boyfriend, but we met in middle school and we talked, after we both found out that each other were gay.

‘But I didn’t act on anything until high school – well, middle school, but then high school.’

He added that he accepted he was gay at the age of 17 or 18 and gradually felt he could be more open as he felt comfortable in his own skin.

The Industry Baby hitmaker previously revealed he was dating someone in October last year, but it is unclear if the mystery man is the same person as his current partner.

He explained at the time: ‘I’m dating someone right now. We’re not in a relationship yet, but it’s been on and off for the past few months. I’m maybe going to try to go steady this time.’
