Raven-Symoné, who received a 2012 Broadway.com Audience Choice Award nomination for headlining the musical Sister Act on Broadway last year, came out of the closet. Kind of.
The former That’s So Raven star tweeted on August 2: “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.” Although she didn’t specifically clarify, the world is assuming the tweet was a delayed reaction to the Supreme Court’s June decision to overturn The Defense of Marriage Act.
This was a big leap for the actress, who dealt with gay rumors when a National Enquirer story claiming she was shacking up with model AzMarie Livingston ran during her time in Sister Act. At that time, Raven-Symone tweeted: “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."
Congrats Raven-Symoné! We think.
