“I ain’t never been gay.” Ne-Yo rubbishes the gay rumours

“I ain’t never been gay.” Ne-Yo rubbishes the gay rumours

Ne-Yo has addressed rumours of his sexuality.

The 38-year-old singer – whose real name is Shaffer Chimere Smith – made an appearance in an episode of Madame Noire’s Spin And Spill The Tea series in which he discussed his love life and addressed rumours that he’s gay.

When asked “What’s that rumour that exists about you that you wish would die?”, Ne-Yo touched on rumours that he’s gay, explaining that he supports the LGBT community before insisting he isn’t gay because he’s married to a woman.

He said: “Taking nothing from homosexuality, love wins, love who you love – I’m just not gay. I ain’t never been gay, and when the whole gay rumours thing happened, that was one of the ones that kind of threw me a little bit. Anybody that knows me knows that nothing could be farther from the truth.”

He added: “But again, love wins, love who you love, have no issue with it.”

This isn’t the first time Ne-Yo has dispelled gay rumours, which began back in 2015 when a US gossip site claimed that Caitlyn Jenner had inspired the singer to discuss his sexuality.

In a series of tweets from 2015, Ne-Yo dismissed the rumour, telling fans that they should “all know by now not to believe everything you read.”
