Twitter went crazy today with another rumor. after a press released came out via The H8terade blog stating that Omarion (formerly of B2K) was Bisexual!
In the following (fake) press release put out by Sharon Wright, the R&B crooner confesses to being Bisexual.
“I pride myself in being an honest, God Fearing, respectful man. I have kept my personal life private and wanted to keep it that way. Unfortunately, other’s are interested in profiting from my anguish; so before they can do that, i will clarify things. 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.”
While many speculated and ran with the story, an official verification from the man himself, came courtesy of NY HOT97 DJ Funkmaster Flex. After calling into his show, Omarion dispelled the rumors citing that “although nothing is wrong with it” he himself is not gay. He also took to Twitter today in a statement:
“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!!!!!!!” -@1Omarion
Frustrated by the situation, he stressed that media outlets and blogs do a bit more research before running with these stories. There’s been a NASTY feud between former B2K member RazB and himself. For months Raz has called out Omarion, Marquese Houston and former manager Chris Stokes as being gay.
