Patti LaBelle Outs Luther Vandross

Patti LaBelle recently stopped by “Watch What Happens Live!” and during her visit the diva spilled Luther Vandross‘ posthumous tea.

I think we all had an understanding in regards to Luther’s sexuality although he never confirmed whether or not he was gay.

Well, thanks to Auntie Patti, the cat is out of the bag.

When Andy Cohen asked if the late iconic singer struggled with coming out, she responded:

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.

Watch the clip below.

 

Do you think Patti LaBelle was wrong for disclosing something Luther Vandross never felt comfortable addressing himself?
