Polyamorous life­style ru­in­ing Nico’s hol­i­days

Younger ac­tor Nico Tor­torella’s de­ci­sion to go pub­lic with his polyamorous re­la­tion­ship sta­tus has seen the star fall out with his part­ner Bethany Mey­ers’ fam­ily ahead of the hol­i­days.

The 29-year-old, who stars along­side Hilary Duff and Sut­ton Foster in the show, iden­ti­fies as pan­sex­ual, and opened up about his re­la­tion­ship with Bethany, his les­bian part­ner of 11 years, in an in­ter­view for mag­a­zine The Ad­vo­cate in July.

How­ever, while his frank­ness was ap­plauded by fans, his com­ments caused some ten­sion with Bethany’s fam­ily. And with Amer­i­can Thanks­giv­ing and Christ­mas ap­proach­ing, the ac­tor shared that he and Bethany have made al­ter­na­tive plans for cel­e­brat­ing the hol­i­days.

“Bethany and I are not nec­es­sar­ily, com­pletely wel­come in her fam­ily cel­e­bra­tions this year,” he told Peo­ple at the World Wide Or­phans Gala this week.
