This child was James Arthur, who was to win the 9th series of The X Factor at the age of 24. Here are all the interesting details about his wife. Maybe it’s true what people say about his sexuality being gay, find out.
James Arthur Bio (Age)
In 1988, on 2 March, James Arthur was born in Middleborough, England, to a Scottish father named Neil Arthur from his English wife Shirley Arthur. The love that once existed between his parents left them when James was 2 years old. Not only did they divorce, but they quickly settled in with their respective new partners, as if they were both suffocating each other as man and wife.
However, their little son still had his life ahead of him. He was enrolled at Ings Farm Primary School in Redcar, North Yorkshire to begin his primary education and later, when he was 9 years old, he moved with his stepfather and mother to Bahrain where he continued his education at the British School of Bahrain. After some time his mother separated from his stepfather, and the young boy returned to England to complete his education at Redcar’s Rye Hills School.
James Arthur’s interest in music began to manifest itself when he was 15 years old. At that time he was writing his own songs and working with some popular brands. James Arthur auditioned for the talent scouting show The X Factor, whereupon he emerged as one of the 12 best participants. He was later to emerge as one of the best of the best on December 9th, when he received the most votes against Jahmene Douglas.
After this victory, James Arthur’s winning song Impossible was released as a charity single, which sold 5 million copies worldwide and was clearly the fastest-selling X Factor winning single of the time.
The singer and songwriter produced and released many more songs, including You, ‘re Nobody til Somebody Loves You, The Truth, Say You Won’t Let Go-Go, Safe Inside, and Can I Be Him. So far in his young career, he has two studio albums, James Arthur and Back from the Edge.
Not every singer and/or songwriter who started his career with James Arthur could achieve what the young Brit has forever. For his musical career, a total of 8 awards have already been nominated from 2013 onwards, of which he has won three: Best International Song for the single Impossible, awarded by Los Premios 40 Principales in 2013, International Breakthrough of the Year for the same song in the same year, awarded by NRJ Music Awards, and Pop International, awarded by Radio Regenbogen Awards in 2014. James Arthur is someone who stands for exceptional talent in the industry as he continues to make more songs and expand his career, so we should see him win more awards.
The Englishman is said to have net assets of about 5 million dollars, most of which came from his music career.
Wife, Girlfriend Or Is He Gay?
Being a celebrity certainly has to do with the fact that your fans want to know you inside out, and James Arthur is no exception. He met his girlfriend Jessica Grist at 2012 The X Factor show where she was a dancer.
Things were going well between the two until a time came when they had a relationship gap. But they got back together and have been strong ever since. James revealed that Jessica was with him the whole time he was nursing an injury inflicted on him by known thug Chris Revell, who accused him of having had a one-night stand with his ex-girlfriend, Gemma Iveson, in 2016. The thug has since been sent to prison for 5.5 years, while James Arthur and Jessica Grist continue to deepen their relationship. The two are not yet married, but it is known that they are engaged with each other.
Certainly, James Arthur is not as gay as we know him because he has a girlfriend. However, for a homophobic insult that he used in rap, he let himself be challenged by Lucy Spraggan, a gay rights activist and singer. Lucy shared a message he had sent her on Twitter with words that were insulting to someone who is not heterosexual. To this James later issued an apology in which he apologized and explained that he was sorry and that he actually had many gay friends, he also explained that in raps/feuds the lyrics he used often have a different meaning.
The singer and songwriter stand at a height of 188 cm (6 feet 2 inches).
