Madame Noire caught her response on Twitter:
“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. My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m dating 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!”
Standing ovation, Raven. Drop the mic and just walk away.

If Raven-Symoné is in love and in a healthy, happy relationship, or if she’s not, she has the right to keep that to herself.
