Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet is back on the market!
The actor, best known for playing gay character Cameron Tucker on the hit show, recently split from his girlfriend of nearly three years, Broadway star Katherine Tokarz, In Touch has learned exclusively!
“They broke up a couple of months ago,” a friend revealed. “Eric is happy and looking to date.” A rep for the actor also confirmed the split to In Touch.
The couple met in 2009 at a Rock of Ages performance Katherine was starring in, but Eric has joked about how she thought he was actually gay before they met.
"I kind of always felt like I had to dig myself out of a bit of a hole and let girls know that I'm actually straight,” he told the ladies at The View in 2011 about meeting Katherine. “But she was like, "Oh, I was watching The View and saw that you weren't gay!' ... And we're still together."
However, Eric, 41, who has won an Emmy for his Modern Family role, doesn’t appear to be wasting any time getting back in the dating game. He was spotted enjoying the company of several ladies on Sept. 16 in LA at Audi’s Emmy Week Kickoff Party with designer Derek Lam.
“He was chatting up a storm at the bar,” reveals an onlooker. “He was talking to several attractive women and appeared to be exchanging phone numbers.”
