The gossip rag has spilled the beans that Raven, who is in New York City playing the lead in "Sister Act" on Broadway, has been living with AzMarie in a condo in Manhattan. Rumor has it that Raven's parents are furious that she has decided to lead a lesbian lifestyle.

Raven was initially mum on the rumors, but has now taken to Twitter to address the chatter. Check out what she wrote below:


“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!”

Back in the day, Raven was a pretty good rapper - she even released a few albums executive produced by Missy Elliot. Man, I wonder why so many female rappers are rumored to play for the same team?

Anyway, check out the single Raven put out back in the day written, produced and featuring Missy Elliot:
