She may have just joined Broadway's Sister Act as a faux-nun, but now it seems the actress Raven-Symoné (the way she's currently spelling it) is being outed as something else entirely: a lesbian.
According to an excerpt of a report obtained by MediaTakeOut, The National Enquirer claims: "Sources close to Raven say she's GAY and has shacked up with AzMarie Livingston, the androgynous beauty seen on America's Next Top Model. The two are living together in Raven's luxury $11,00-a-month New York City condo. She's at a point now where she doesn't care what her family thinks, and she's in love with AzMarie. She's a lesbian and wants to live that way."
In a March interview, when the 26-year-old joined Sister Act, the actress seemed to want to keep her personal life out of the spotlight when she answered an interviewer with "The best advice that I can give is: It's about the work. It's really about you putting yourself into your work and your career and focusing on that, and not going for the shiny, fake gold teeth that you find out later are not real gold. Go for the long haul. And hopefully it works. I don't talk about anything else but my work, and that's what I'm doing and that's what I portray."
Last June, however, Raven did describe her perfect man to another publication, saying he would be a "mannequin so he comes alive when [she] needs him to."
While it all could be rumors and tabloid fodder at this point, but the angle they're going with this is that "She's at a point now where she doesn't care what her family thinks, and she's in love with AzMarie. She's a lesbian and wants to live that way." And if that's the case, we say: Good for her!
And up to this point, we just thought she loved changing the spelling, pronunciation, punctuation of her name to confuse us. Now Cosby's lil Olivia is REALLY all grown up. But THAT'S SO RAVEN!
