Patti Labelle is known to speak her mind!! She did that as she sat down on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live”. She discussed many things and many people!! Of those people discussed was the late great Luther Vandross!! Patti revealed some ancient tea about Luther’s (much debated) sexual preference. Patti says that Luther was not going to come out of the closet and admit he was gay!! She spoke with Andy and said:
We talked about it. Basically, he did not want his mother to be…although she might have known, but he wasn’t going to come out and say this to the world. And he had a lot of lady fans and he told me he just didn’t want to upset the world.
Wow!! Talk about old school tea!! Check her interview below:
Happy Birthday, Patti LaBelle!
