Raven-Symone Responds To Lesbian Rumors: ‘My Sexual Orientation is Mine’

Raven-Symone has decided to respond via Twitter to the persistent rumors that she is a lesbian. Earlier this week the National Enquirer published an article claiming that the former Disney star is now a lesbian dating America’s Next Top Model contestant, AzMarie Livingston. According to the tabloid, the two are also living together in New York.

After losing a substantial amount of weight and changing up her entire look, the “That’s So Raven” star says she’s not going to play the rumor game.

The Enquirer claims that Raven-Symone’s family doesn’t approve of her lifestyle but reports that Raven still loves them very much. According to the anonymous source, Raven told her parents that “her home – especially her bedroom – is nobody’s business, and she was not going to back down, so they needed to accept it, period.”

The childhood star of the Cosby Show shared her side of the story, but it wasn’t exactly what the tabloids wanted to hear. “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,” she tweeted last Friday. The 26-year-old actress wasn’t done with her Twitter rant just yet. She continued, “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life. 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. 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!”

As far as her career goes, Raven-Symone is currently starring on Broadway in the musical adaptation of “Sister Act.”
