As Out reported earlier this year back in March, Campbell seemingly came out publicly in a quote-tweet replying to a fan, writing "Tevin is," accompanied by the rainbow flag and sunglasses emojis, though he later deleted that tweet. Now, months later, Campbell is officially confirming he is gay.
"When I came out to my family and friends [at] about 19 or 20, that was it for me," he told People about coming out to those closest to him in life years ago. "And then I went on the road of discovering myself. I didn't know who I was."
"What makes me happiest right now is how far I've come in life. You know, there are a lot of child stars that don't make it. But a lot of us do, and the fact that I've embraced me."
Can we talk for a minute? Because it looks like Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and R&B star Tevin Campbell is opening up about his sexuality.
"My mom keeps telling me Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass, and Tevin Campbell were gay," the fan's tweet read, to which Campbell simply quote-tweeted and said, "Tevin is," accompanied by the rainbow flag and sunglasses emojis.
