Last week, the media was abuzz with rumors that former “Cosby Show” star Raven-Symoné is gay and living with her alleged girlfriend, “America’s Next Top Model” contestant AzMarie Livingston. But now the Broadway star has come forward to finally address the rumors.
Symoné took to her Twitter page last week to say that her sexuality is no one’s business but her own.
“My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m dating to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life,” Symone tweeted.
“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,” Symoné added.
The rumors of her sexuality began after a source implied to the National Enquirer that Livingston and Raven-Symoné were living together in the star’s $11,000-a-month New York City apartment.
“Raven has hidden being gay for a long time now,” a source said. “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.”
Little else is known about the alleged love affair and it looks like regardless of whether it’s true or not, Symoné is keeping her mouth shut. Either way, more power to her.
