*Raven-Symone got more than 14,000 likes for the above pic posted to her Instagram on Sunday.
The former Cosby kid poses in a plunging printed top while also giving a shout-out to her rumored girlfriend, AzMarie Livingston.
“Messing around with after light…. Great job at the viper room Az! WELL DONE (mortal combat voice),” the 27-year-old wrote.
Livingston, a former contestant on “America’s Next Top Model,” recently performed at the Viper Room in West Hollywood.
Symone, who came out back in August on Twitter, was first linked to Livingston two years ago. The two were spotted hanging out in Atlanta in September.
*An Internet backlash followed actress Raven-Symone’s coming out earlier this month, as Twitter users responded with 140-character claims that the news has ruined their childhood.
The hashtag #childhoodruined sprung up on tweets spreading the news, insinuating that the realization of the star’s sexuality somehow destroys the impact of her hit Disney Channel show “That’s So Raven” on their development.
Prior to Raven’s understated coming out via Tweet, speculation surrounding her sexuality was nothing new. Last year, fueled by a story published in The National Enquirer, rumors spiraled that Raven-Symone was in a relationship with AzMarie Livingston, a former contestant on “America’s Next Top Model.”
Raven responded to the rumors via Twitter: “I’m living my PERSONAL life the way I’m happiest. I’m not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I’m dating. And I shall not start now.”
On Aug. 2, Symone tweeted: “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.” It’s assumed the 27-year-old actress was referring to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn The Defense of Marriage Act back in June, which allows same same-sex marriages to be recognized by the Federal government.
Actress Raven Symone makes her way into rehearsals for the Broadway Musical rendition of 'Sister Act.'
*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.
