Grammy nominated R&B singer Omarion (26) has denied he’s bisexual or gay after a website quoted him as saying that he is proudly bisexual.
According to the site Bossip, Omarion said: “I am not at all what certain ex-band members are trying to paint me as, I am however a respectable, mature, proud, bisexual man.”
The site did not say where it sourced the apparent quote from but there are reports that a fake media release was circulated on the internet.
In response, Omarion (real name Omari Ismael Grandberry) – who has been the subject of gay rumours before – tweeted a denial.
“Check it out ‘I DID NOT RELEASE THAT STATEMENT’, whatever you like is your business but I AINT GAY OR BISEXUAL, I love women PERIOD!!!!!!!” said the star.
Omarion is the former lead singer of the boy band B2K, has released three solo album and is a judge on America’s Best Dance Crew.
