*Back in May 2013, the “hide ya kids, hide ya wives” star Antoine Dodson renounced his sexuality as an openly gay man and described himself as a “true Chosen Hebrew Israelite descendant of Judah.”

But in a recent interview with HipHollywood, he further described his change in sexuality and how at first it was hard for his own self to accept it.

“The person that I’m with … We’ve known each other for six plus years. We were friends in the lifestyle, going to clubs and stuff like that.”

He added, “but the more we started to hang together we just actually started dating. Then we just did it, it just happened. We’ve been together ever since.”

Dodson is referring to his longtime friend and now wife with who he fathered a child. Although recent rumors surfaced Dodson has been seeing men again, he said he is happy with his wife.

Nevertheless, he did admit it was difficult at first accepting he wasn’t gay anymore and that he wasn’t able to live his previous lifestyle.

“At the beginning it was like that. But anything, when there’s a change, you always have the memories of the old life,” he said.

He added, “I still hang with my friends. I still have my friends, I see their lifestyle and I’m like ‘oh it’s fun.’ But then I realize I love my family.”
