Tevin Campbell Gay Rumors
Even though Tevin shared images of a girl in his Instagram, he was not clean of gay rumors. So addressing the gay rumors, the American singer gave an interview with iloveoldschoolmusic.com back in January 2015. In the interview he was asked whether he wants people to know what his sexuality is, to which he replied,
"I’m not gay, but there are a lot of different things that I do like, sexually. Being in the business, you are introduced to a lot of different things. I’m not gay but I’m a freak, and I think a lot of people know what a freak is."
He also added that he is 'not exclusively attracted to men' and being in the entertainment industry, he is introduced to a lot of different things. Similarly, he claimed that he cared less about what people thought about his sexuality in another interview with madamenoire.com in July 2012. He stood out and said:
That’s nobody’s business. If someone is interested in me and they wanna be my friend or whatever, then we can talk. It’s nobody’s business what I like to do behind closed doors, ……And I like the fact that people wanna know. Let ‘em wonder. I like to leave a little bit to the imagination. But if you happen to get to know me and we hit it off… I share a lot of personal things with friends, which is a normal thing to do.
With his statement in the interviews, it is for sure that he is not gay and the rumors are just baseless assumptions.
