Raven Symone checked in with her Twitter followers (@MissRavenSymone) earlier today, where the former ‘That’s So Raven’ and Cheetah Girls singer apparently revealed that she’s a lesbian. Raven writes in regards to what presumably is legalized gay marriage:
I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you
Among the messages that she then retweeted:
Versace Bigpurse (@H8teTheeSquares): She been out, momma just didn’t have time for bullshit. and I LIVVVEEE “@_BeatrixKiddoo: You better come out sis. @MissRavenSymone”
CourtneyCathyAllison (@Courtneigh24): @MissRavenSymone Congratz?. Just waiting on South Africa now..
Thugnificent. (@SilentKoalaBear): @MissRavenSymone Can I have your spot in the Cheetah Girls? Disney might not like you anymore.
The revelation is not a total shock, as Raven’s sexual orientation has long been speculated on, and she addressed it on Twitter on May 18, 2012, writing:
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.
My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life.
However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I’m not harming anyone.
I am a light being made from love. And my career is the only thing I would like to put on display, not my personal life. Kisses!

Raven says, “Did you know that the average person has about ten jobs in their whole entire lifetime? I think it’s because we always want to expand our horizons and we’re always changing. Since I’ve been in the entertainment industry since I was two, I thought, ‘I think it’s time for me to get another job?’ And I said, ‘Where would I like to work?’ And what better place than Six Flags?”
