Bill Kaulitz – Gay, Boyfriend, Girlfriend, Relationship
There have been speculations about Kaulitz’s sexuality and questions have been raised as to ask if he is gay.
In a 2014 article with sheknows, Bill Kaulitz answered the questions, “I feel like it drives people nuts not to know if there is a woman or a man in my bed. That’s why I’ve been getting the “gay question” ever since I turned 13 when I started giving interviews. I always wondered… why does that even matter? I thought I was here to sing and perform for people?”
Kaulitz has been in a relationship with his girlfriend Natalie Franz, Rach L in 2008. He was also rumored to have dated Kim Paradise in 2008.
Although we consider him to be a single man, a secret affair cannon be ruled out.

Bill Kaulitz – Career
At a young age, Bill Kaulitz showed an interest in singing, which was noticed by Trumper. He helped the Kaulitz twins to start their own band and they had begun writing music at the age of 7.
The Kaulitz twins were just 10 years old when they started live in Magdeburg performing but the band lacked a drummer and bass player. Eventually, when Bill Kaulitz was 12 years old, he and Tom Kaulitz met bassist Georg Listing (then 14), and drummer Gustav Schafer (then 13). They named themselves Devilish, which was later renamed Tokio Hotel.
But the band did not gain much success, except for a TV appearance on a small-time German news program between late 2002 and early 2003. Bill Kaulitz stepped up and auditioned on Star Search, a reality TV show, which got them recognized.
