Raven-Symone comes out via Twitter
Think Raven Baxter saw this one coming?
According to an article written in the National Enquirer last spring, “lesbian rumors have hounded” ex-Disney Channel star Raven-Symone “for years.” Those rumors apparently reached a fever pitch in 2012, when the Enquirer reported that Raven was living in a “love-nest” with openly gay America’s Next Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston.
Rather than shoot down the speculation, Symone responded by simply tweeting the following: “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life.” In other words: “I’m perfectly comfortable in the glass closet.”
Or at least she was until today, when Raven tweeted this message:
When asked for comment, a rep for Raven sent EW a statement from the actress:
“I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted. I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to.”
So there you have it! Let’s move on to more important topics, such as: where’s our Cheetah Girls 10-year anniversary reunion movie?
