According to BlackVoices.com Omarion’s ‘coming out’ press release is a dud. The BV post says, “The fake press announcement was attributed to Sharron Wright at Sony Music; however BlackVoices.com reported exclusively on April 19, 2008 that the singer was no longer affiliated with the label.”
They also received a statement from Omarion’s real publicist. The 26-year-old former B2K member’s rep, Francoise Blachette of The Purple Agency, promptly responded to BlackVoices.com inquiry for comment on the matter.
“The previously released statement regarding Omarion is false and was generated for negative publicity by an unknown person. Omarion will not contribute to anything negative said or done against him. Omarion respects all of his fans, no matter religion, sexuality, or race,” she said in a statement.
I don’t normally post about peoples’ sexuality and whatnot but I found this interesting. There have always been rumors about Omarion (former lead singer of defunct boy group B2K) being into guys. I never really took to them because most R&B singers get labeled gay/bi, just for GP. Last week, on Twitter, there was an e-altercation with Raz B (of B2K) and Chris Brown. Chris Brown called Raz B a “homo” and such. And Omarion even chimed in calling Raz B a “homothug” and laughing at the argument. Now, Raz B has been accusing Chris Stokes and Marques Houston of molesting him and others when they were younger and I guess he had some issue with Omarion, as well. I find it interesting that Omarion would even chime in to that Twitter drama knowing that he, himself, is a member of the Gay community. I also find it funny that he decided to release a statement confirming that he bats for both teams. I think Raz B was about to drop something and he wanted to beat Raz to the punch.
The entertainment industry never ceases to live up to its name.
