*Earlier this week, the National Enquirer reported that former Disney star Raven Symone is a closeted lesbian, and she’s currently in a relationship with an openly gay woman who competed on the current season of “America’s Next Top Model.”
Today, the star of Broadway’s “Sister Act” is speaking out via Twitter, saying that her sexuality is no one’s business but her own.
“My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m dating’s to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life,” Symone tweeted.
The National Enquirer quoted sources who claim the former “Cosby Show” child star is living with “ANTM” contestant AzMarie Livingston in Symone’s New York City apartment.
“Raven has hidden being gay for a long time now,” a source told the National Enquirer. “But about a year ago, she was introduced by a friend to AzMarie, who is absolutely gorgeous. The two began seeing each other, and a few months ago, Raven finally got the nerve to ask her to move into her lavish Manhattan condo. When her family found out, they blew their stack and it’s created a gay scandal for Raven.”
Despite the Enquirer story, Symone feels no obligation to respond with a definition of her sexual preferences.
“However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I’m not harming anyone,” Symone tweeted.
