Cheyenne Jackson Engaged To New BF Jason Landau

cheyenne jackson cultSix months after announcing his high-profile divorce from longtime partner Monte Lapka, 38-year-old Glee hunk and DIY pornographer Cheyenne Jackson is officially engaged to Jason Landau, the young actor he recently moved to West Hollywood for.

The pair were reportedly dating as early as last July when, according to a source close to the couple who spoke exclusively to Queerty, “they met in AA and were kicked out of the chapter for breaking the no-dating rules.”

This was around the same time Jackson shaved his head, got a few interesting tattoos and grew a mustache amid his “mutual” split from Lapka.

Speculation is that Jackson switched coasts and began dating Landau, an instructor with the self help, EST-offshoot group Landmark Forum, in order to “start fresh.”

The couple’s Instagram photos certainly show them to be a happy couple. Congrats, guys!

    Look at those teeth. Those faces. Don’t you wish you could be them..? Of course you do. Unless you look better. Which you never will. Unless you buy my book. I love Queerty where you can speak your mind until they discover that you actually have one. Then baby you are out of here. jimbryant is still here, WHY.? 2eo is gone. WHY.? Auntie Christ is gone. WHY.? OK Auntie was a bit emotional, but I have been reading this blog and comments for several months now. Be happy that there are many in the Anthropological community who are gay and straight who see this as something better than Christmas.

  • LadywithaLamp

    Oops. Guess I’m next.

    @LadywithaLamp …Girl getcha ya life! lol

    Here’s a fun fact. Macrocosm and microcosm is an ancient Greek Neo-Platonic schema of seeing the same patterns reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level). In the system the midpoint is Man, who summarizes the cosmos.

    The Greeks were philosophically concerned with a rational explanation of everything and saw the repetition of the golden ratio throughout the world and all levels of reality as a step towards this unifying theory. In short, it is the recognition that the same traits appear in entities of many different sizes, from one man to the entire human population.

    So now Queerty is reporting on engagements between a nobody and a want to be that never was? Next thing you know this site will be announcing when my dogs take a poop.

    Cheyenne Jackson is certainly a name in the Broadway community- having starred in Xanadu, and four other Broadway shows. Not to mention film and TV. You may call him a nobody, and in your eyes he maybe- but that’s not completely the case.

  • TinoTurner

    Is there a word for when a successful gay man gives everything up in his life to go after a mess? We’ve seen it all too often…and I’m even talking outside of Hollywood.

  • robirob

    Hang on, Landau is involved with the Landmark Forum and yet met Cheyenne in AA and both got kicked out of AA for breaking the no-dating rule? Something’s fishy. Why would someone from the Landmark Forum need additional help and support from AA?

  • redcarpet

    Oh gurrrrl. This will not end well. His life though.

  • Stefano

    @sportguy1983 : “next thing you know this site will be announcing when my dogs take a poop.” No need, Ladywithalamp just did.

  • GymJockTX

    Screw all the noisy negativist beyotches on here, they’re a pair of gorgeous, masculine looking guys, and I wish them both all the best.

  • viveutvivas

    She may be a mess, but at least she isn’t lonely. And that is something.

  • Stefan

    Good looks and masculinuity to not excuse anything lol. Maybe in gay life, I guess. Be a F’d up mess–but a cute one and it’s all ok.

  • Beachman

    @robirob: Great point…

  • dougmc92

    well- I guess gay celebs are no smarter than str8 celebs when it comes to rushing into ill advised marriages. Just because we CAN get married (in some places) doesn’t mean some of us should…wasn’t he just caught jerking it on video saying he was so lonely/didn’t have a boyfriend- that was just a couple months ago- this guy’s an idiot!

  • yaletownman

    First of all there is no “rule” in AA that says you cannot date a fellow member. It’s just not recommended for the first year one is in the program. I’ve never heard anyone being “kicked out” of AA. They might be asked to leave a meeting if they are disruptive and rude. I really don’t know anything about “The Landmark forum” but I’m always hesistant to call things a cult till I know more. Technically, just about every organizaed religious or spiritual group could be called a cult by somebody.

  • Icebloo

    Cheyenne is our very own gay, white trash train wreck. Move over Lindsay Lohan – Cheyenne is the new loser in town.

    It seems once these so-called “celebrities” get success and money they have too much time on their hands to think about nothing but themselves and the meaning of life. Then they get caught up in all kind of weird “religions” and bullsh*t. Cheyenne needs to get a job that keeps him occupied for longer. The rest of us don’t have time to be so self-absorbed – we are busy working our asses off.

    I can’t wait to see this arrogant, lazy & selfish loser fall. I give his latest relationship 6 months. He is far too into himself to put any time into creating a relationship focused on shared needs – Cheyenne is all about himself.

  • viveutvivas

    @Icebloo “I can’t wait to see this arrogant, lazy & selfish loser fall.” Wow, you must be a really unhappy person.

  • balehead

    Poor Cheyenne….they will blackmail him for the sex tapes….

  • dickshite

    @B Damion: @Cam: Sweet. Live your life with blinders on. Be vain vacuous vapid queers cause that’s what is expected of you. Then tell those who really have a brain to get a life. Cause that is also what you do. YOU ARE ALL jimbryant. THE BULLY in the school yard. Queerty is the bully, AND YOU ALL ARE THE PROBLEM. F**K you AND F**K THEM.!!!

  • dickshite

    40 FUCKING YEARS AND YOU BITCHES NEVER CHANGE..!!! NEVER..!!! Same words, same photos. same stories and if anyone has an original thought or word you stomp on it. Well I am done. Darwin awards to all you blind stupid piles of crap and PS your shit stinks BIG TIME. I would curse you but it is quite clear that you are already cursed.Les enfants de la bêtise et de la honte.

  • MK Ultra

    @Cam: That’s what I was thinking. Getting involved with a cult member? Woah, tread lightly.

  • Lazycrockett

    Cheyenne seemed a lot less cra cra when he was drinking.

  • barkomatic

    I wish them both the best and I hope they are happy together. Life can be hard, and you have to take companionship and love where you find it.

  • hephaestion

    Cheyenne Jackson is probably the most talented man in America. It saddens me that his fame still hasn’t spread much beyond Broadway.

  • GymJockTX

    @barkomatic: I agree wholeheartedly. This site is a serious downer with all of these cliche bitter old queens hissing and spitting venom and bile. Lotta unhappy beyotches on here.

    Cheyenne & Jason–best wishes, and enjoy yourselves. Peace on.

  • Jonathonz

    First off you can’t be “kicked out” of an AA chapter for dating. The only way you can be kicked out of an AA meeting is to threaten people with bodily harm. AA chapters do not kick people out for dating each other. That’s ridiculous. Many people meet their life partners in AA.

    Secondly, Landmark Forum has the quickest, most effective way I’ve ever experienced to cut through the bullshit in your life and get to what really matters, whatever that is TO YOU. It is not a cult. People volunteer their time to work there because it’s helped them sort out their lives and they want to pass that along to others, of their own free will. Cults are problematic because they want to control people. Landmark Education gets people in touch with their own essential voices and sets them free to live a life they love. Their Curriculum for Living lasts under a year and you never have to set foot there again. They will maybe send you a postcard if they get around to it. A Cult, by definition, is way more controlling.

  • DuMaurier

    @yaletownman: You beat me to the punch with your “…there is no “rule” in AA that says you cannot date a fellow member.” There aren’t any conduct “rules” at all regarding anyone’s personal life, and nobody can get “kicked out” of AA. Individual meetings are run the way the members want, and some are stricter than others about behavior AT the meetings, but if some version of what the story says actually happened it was purely a decision at that level, “AA” in the broad sense would have nothing to do with it.

  • Jonathonz

    Best wishes to Cheyenne and Jason!

  • AllenSF

    How do people get engaged so quickly I met by BF two years ago this month and we are nowhere near making such a decision?

  • robirob

    Regarding them being thrown out of AA. Could it be that they got thrown out for endangering the anonymity of some of the group’s members? I seem to recall around the time the solo jerk off scandal was in full swing there were some posts on gay gossip messagboards claiming that some of the instagram pictures may feature famous or not so famous guys who are with them in AA.

  • jmi2

    i waited until i read how other sites were reporting the story. they did a straight reporting style using all facts not like this one that is filled with rumors, innuendos, and baseless ‘facts.’-

    why is it so outrageous that the man moved on to someone else? it’s a fact of life. why would it be so important to report on AA? especially as other commenters have pointed out the falsehood? also, it does appear that whoever wrote this piece might have a personal vendetta regarding Landmark. does s/he have personal experience with it? or does s/he just dislike Cheyenne Jackson?

    i usually read articles here for the fun and the facts. this comes across as an op-ed. i’m surprised…

    You can always tell when other cult members or little fangurls come in here. Isn’t it funny how they will claim that we are bullies but then use violent language and attack us?

    First of all, please point out exactly where in my comment there was anything bullying. I pointed out ACCURATELY that he was dating somebody who was high up in a group that has been investigated multiple times for fraudulent activities, and that if they followed Scientology polices he could have been a plant in AA.

    You in returned flipped out, obviously you either have an obsession with Jackson or are also a member of the cult.

  • jar

    @Jonathonz: The same has been said about Scientology. You can find scores of the afflicted who will tout $cientology as a life saver. The Forum and Landmark have both been very problematic for their practices, which are similar to $cien.

  • Thad1527

    As much as this may be reported on, I don’t have to care about it.

  • mz.sam

    @dickshite: “You are all JIMBRYANT” Brilliant analogy!…you got that shit right.
