Additionally, Gilbert was the vocalist for the hardcore punk band Shai Hulud between 1995 and 1998, and he rejoined the band in 2012.

Gilbert is divorced from Sherri DuPree from the rock band Eisley. Since 2008, he had been in a relationship with Paramore's lead vocalist and keyboardist Hayley Williams. On December 31, 2014, Williams and Gilbert announced that they had become engaged after Gilbert proposed on Christmas Day. They were married on February 20, 2016. The couple announced on July 1, 2017, that they were separating. On January 26, 2010, Gilbert reported that "suspicious cells" had been found in his thyroid and he would be getting half of his thyroid surgically removed. Four days later, Gilbert posted on his Twitter that the surgery had been a success and no cancer had been found.
Gilbert has lived a clean lifestyle his whole life partly inspired by hearing H2O songs in his teens.
