Ne-Yo has stated that the information about him, coming as a gay after being inspired by Caitlyn Jenner, was obviously untrue.

Ne-Yo has stated that the information about him, coming as a gay after being inspired by Caitlyn Jenner, was obviously untrue.

Earlier this week the site NewsBuzzDaily.com quoted Ne-Yo, who allegedly admitted to be a gay. Besides, there was said in the article that the famous singer was inspired to reveal his sexuality by Caitlyn Jenner, according to its title .

On Friday Ne-Yo responded to the site with a pair of tweets.

In spite of fact that Ne-Yo mistakenly called Jenner a gay instead of transgender, lets hope that those tweets will provide his fans with real facts.

The actually quoted text, which caused such misunderstanding, was next:

“Bruce 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 is very brave and beautiful. As soon as he came out as transgendered, she freed herself and thats the freedom I want” says Ne-Yo.

– those words were claimed to be said by the popular R&B singer, who later stated all that information was completely faulty and added he has never said anything like that.

Of course, it was obvious that the articles written on that site are just for entertainment and satirical purposes. However,the majority of people believes in truthfulness of information provided by that website.

For a very long time there have been existing rumors about Ne-Yo’s sexuality. In 2009 there was an interview with Essence, where the singer said:

Honestly, when I first heard that there were rumors out there about me being gay I thought, Wow someone must really hate me. There’s nothing wrong with being gay, but I just couldn’t understand why someone would make up lies like that. I remember speaking to Jay-Z about it and he was like, ‘Look, man you haven’t made it until someone says you’re gay.’
