America's Next Top Model

Raven-Symone Responds to Rumor That She’s Dating ANTM’s AzMarie

Raven-Symone has been a major TV star since she was cast on The Cosby Show at age 3. Perhaps because she’s been in the spotlight her whole life, she wants to keep her private life exactly that.

However, the National Enquirer has a new story out claiming Raven is now dating former America’s Next Top Model Cycle 18 contestant AzMarie Livingston and they are living together in Raven’s $11,000-a-month New York City apartment.

A source told the Enquirer of Raven, “She’s at a point now where she doesn’t care what her family thinks, and she’s in love with AzMarie. She’s a lesbian and wants to live that way.”

Raven responded to the rumor in a series of tweets:

"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!"

AzMarie, an early ANTM Cycle 18 frontrunner cut in a surprising elimination on Episode 6, revealed on the premiere that she’s a lesbian. (And then went on to get hit on by every straight girl she encountered on the show.) On Wednesday, she tweeted this comment that may or may not have anything to do with Raven and the Enquirer story: "I confirm I am a unique expression of the highest power :) Have a great day."

So there you have it. And don’t have it at all.

Catch the next episode of ANTM Cycle 18 Wednesday, May 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
