For some Neyo fans all over the world, this information might be disturbing to some of you and quite of a shock to those who idolized him.
After reading an article claiming he was gay and that Caitlyn Jenner’s decision to come out inspired him to do the same, RnB Singer, NE-YO took to his twitter handle to clear things up to his fans.
NewsBuzz Daily quoted Neyo saying that “Jenner 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 and that I was attracted to the other boys. As a black man, we fear gayness instead of embracing it”
He was also reported as saying “I thought it was phase, I thought I could surpress these gay emotions”.
The story alleged Ne-Yo was seeing another male celebrity, but quoted the singer as saying “let him reveal himself when the time is right”.
After calling out the “interview” as a fake, Ne-Yo posted a second message to reinforce his support for Caitlyn and the gays.
“No disrespect to the gay community or to #CaitlynJenner by the way. Live your life and be proud. I’m just not gay, we’re still on this?
