Raven-Symoné isn’t taking rumors of her being a lesbian lightly. The former child star took to Twitter to address a National Enquirer story published this week claiming she is in a relationship with America’s Next Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston.
Though Raven didn’t confirm or deny the story, she did state that her dating life is no one’s business but her own. “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m dating to know,” she tweeted earlier today. “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.”
“However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay,” she added. “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!”
Raven has always been private about her dating life, once telling ESSENCE.com that she’s learning to be more open about her personal life. “I’m still living in the 1990s in the entertainment industry because I [ask myself] ‘Why do I have to tweet? I don’t understand,’ she said. “Back in the day, it was more mysterious to be in the entertainment industry. We didn’t need to know everything [celebrities] were doing. But I have to get over that.”
