Raven-Symone: My sexuality is my business
By Tomika Anderson, Special to CNN
(CNN) — Rumors are flying about Raven-Symoné’s love life, but the actress/singer feels no pressure to confirm or deny the gossip.
Last week, a new report surfaced claiming that the 26-year-old is gay, and while she didn’t address that report specifically, Symoné wrote on Twitter Friday that she’s never talked about her dating life, and she doesn’t plan to start now.
The National Enquirer’s reported that Symoné is dating and living with AzMarie Livingston, a contestant on “America’s Next Top Model,” at her New York City condo.
Without commenting on the speculation directly, Symoné wrote Friday, “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. 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.”
And regardless of her sexual orientation, she continued, it’s her decision as to whether to share that information.
“However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay,” she tweeted. “To tell or not to tell. As long as I’m not harming anyone. I am a light being made from love. And my career is the only thing I would like to put on display, not my personal life. Kisses!”
Symoné currently stars in “Sister Act” on Broadway.
