Ne-Yo Responds To Website’s Claim That Caitlyn Jenner Inspired Him To Come Out As Gay

Ne-Yo has responded to a report alleging that he was recently inspired to come out as gay after learning about Caitlyn Jenner’s journey.In an article published earlier this week, the site NewsBuzzDaily.com quoted the R&B singer as stating: “Bruce [sic] 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 [sic] is very brave and beautiful. As soon as he [sic] came out as transgendered [sic], she freed herself and thats the freedom I want.”Though the website offered no source for the quote and provides a disclaimer that reads, “NewsBuzzDaily.com is a combination of real shocking news and satire news. Please note that articles written on this site are for entertainment and satirical purposes only,” many took the quote at face value and believed it to be true.Ne-Yo addressed the claim with a pair of tweets on Friday:

U should all know by now not to believe everything you read. Much luv to but I’m not on that team. Not gay folks. So sorry.
