Raven Symone' Finanlly Admits To Oprah That She's With A Woman, But Claims She's "Not Gay"
Raven Symone' former child star on the 'Bill Cosby Show' and Disney's 'That's So Raven' is finally speaking out on her sexuality in a new 'Where Are They Now' interview with Oprah Winfrey.
If you recall, in 2013, Raven-Symoné sent out a tweet in support of gay marriage that caused a sensation. "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you," the tweet read. Most people thought this was her way of publicly coming out, since rumors of her dating preference have been not very straight. "That was my way of saying I'm proud of the country," Raven says. "But I will say that I'm in an amazing, happy relationship with my partner, a woman." While Raven is happy to admit she is in love, she prefers to keep her personal life private. "I don't want to be labeled as gay," she says. "I want to be labeled as a human who loves humans. I'm tired of being labeled. I'm an American. I'm not an African-American, I'm an American." "Oh girl, don't set the Twitter on fire," Oprah says. "You are going to get a lot of flack for saying you're not African-American. You know that, right?" Watch Raven go on to explain exactly what she means and why she's proud of "who I am and what I am."
How can you be in a romantic relationship with a woman and then, you don't want to be called gay? You are an African-American yet you don't consider yourself as one. How weird? We are now seeing the 'cray cray' in Ms. Raven. Her statement will definitely create some controversy. Let's see how she handles it.
