This is the second time Ne-Yo would have to be fighting rumors that he’s gay.
The talented singer and dancer came out to slam new reports he is gay after a website recently published an article claiming Caitlyn Jenner’s public announcement of s*x change had inspired the singer to also admit he is homosexual.
In an article published earlier this week, the site NewsBuzzDaily.com quoted the R&B singer as stating:
“Bruce [sic] Jenner really gave me the inner strength to admit to my kids, my family, my friends, my fans and ultimately to myself that I am gay. I’ve known I was gay since I was a young boy that I was attracted to the other boys. As a black man, we fear gayness instead of embracing it. Watching Bruce, well Caitlyn, sit down with Dianne Sawyer on ABC really inspired me. Bruce [sic] is very brave and beautiful. As soon as he [sic] came out as transgendered [sic], she freed herself and thats the freedom I want.”
