Raven Simone Comes Out

Actress Raven Simone (The Cosby Show, That’s So Raven) has come out.

According to a report from Pop2It, it was the Supreme Court’s striking down of the Defense of Marriage Act earlier this summer that prompted the 27-year-old to go public. “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you,” she tweeted. A rumor about Simone’s sexuality hit the National Enquirer last year, and it indicated she was living with a contestant on America’s Next Top Model. At that time Raven clearly wasn’t ready to come out to everyone.  “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life,” she said in 2012.
