Patti Labelle Outs Luther Vandross


Patti LaBelle outs late R&B singer Luther Vandross...

On the recent episode of Watch What Happens Live Patti tells Andy Cohen,
“We talked about [his being in the closet]. 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.”

Gossip....And yet you come to Snitch page worrying and looking daily to see if RWS is posting something you posted... Chile BYE! We still not coming to your page! How many other blogs have the same stories about shit that happens on TV!! How many times have people reposted MEMES that I made or other people have made. You sound like a stalker here. Go back to your page and worry about your followers boo. Faithful RWS ANON for the past 10 years!! almost 11...

I troll it like I see it. said...

Tell us something we didn't already know Patty, we also know his real cause of death was Aids. My question is why you so damn messy in your old age? and what the hell did Luther did to you for you to be outing him years after his death? she is so damn petty. Still does not change he was one of the most beautiful voice of our time and I still get laid to his songs.

Love Miss Patti--I really do; but this wasn't her business to tell, especially since the man is gone and can't speak for himself. While it may have been an unkept secret, to which I vaguely recall him calling himself 'bi-coastal' in a long gone interview, no one else has the right to 'out' someone. It's a private matter one can decide to do for him or herself in their own time.

Patti wrong for that! I think we all knew this information. If e didn't say for those reason then she should have shut her mouth. We all know Freddy Jackson is the same way, Little Richard and Sherman Hemsley (George Jefferson) but they never told a sole. Well it came out after George Jefferson died that he was living with his man. But still Patti.... then to say it on live TV. No Ma'am!

So what if he was gay, doesn't change the fact that Luther Vandross is a legend in music and one of the all time greatest male singers...

@2:21.... Chileeee not tap dancing on the tailbone. I hollered!!! I had no clue.

@2:15...the hell you say about Gregory??!! This is some real tea here! I knew about curl not quite right Luther, but had no clue about Gregory. We learn something new every day.

You know you too old to be talking ill of the dead Patti, that's just code and it just proved she was no real friend. Leave that man alone.

Anonymous said...

Smh at people saying Pattie shouldn't have said this (even though she knew him and knew this as fact) then in the next breath try and out people they don't know. Nobody ain't NEVER heard of no damn Gregory Hines being gay or Luther lover. But now that an Anon on RWS says it, it has to be true.

Just an observation said...

Tea that is stale and not new. I never wanted Luther to come out. I wanted to enjoy his music without knowing his personal business. But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know he was gay.

HHIC said...

Love her dearly but she could have kept this to herself. Yes we all knew, but he’s dead and gone. No need for this...

2:54 GIRL THAT TEAS IS OLD!! That's tea from the 90's! Just because you never heard it, annnd?? Fuck that mean?? I WORK in the industry! I know WTF i'm talking aobut! Why don't you ask Patti on twitter or something? She may spill that too since she's in a spilling mood.. but the REAL SHADE IS.. ANY IS THE ONE THAT SAID IT LIKE IT WAS A KNOWN FACT! WHY AIN'T THAT MESSY ASS TRUMP LOVING WHITE QUEEN GETTING DRAGGED??? HE LOVES MAKING MONEY OFF OF WOMEN FIGHTING AND YOU HOES LET HIM DO IT!!

Smh just when i thought we couldnt get lower...now u are calling gregory hines gay? You people deserve all the bad karma you and your families deserve..disgusting waste matter of the black populace.

Alls I need to know from Patti is were she get the crack to put in that peach cobbler?

That shit was a hit at Thanksgiving!!!

Ms. LaBelle is doing right and relevant from PR standards by addressing this topic on the show.
The new non-denominational "its gets better" generation will lap it up. Better than her broaching the sexual harassment allegations being that Bill from their city of brotherly love is still not out the fire.

@3.34

I nor half the people in here has ever heard of it. Don't CAPS LOCK on me because I'm not going to just lay down and accept your gossip as truth. Now I do agree with you about Andy and his messy ass but Pattie who knew Luther should have kept it classy. She's been around for decades and should know better. Would he ask John Travolta friends to confirm his gay rumors.

Anonymous said...

@3:52PM Yes, but John Travolta ain't dead yet. And unlike Luther, I'm sure he'll have proprietors overseeing his estate/name tighter than Meek Mills butthole at lights out.

Cinnamon said...

@2:08 oh my I didn't know he died of that disease.....COMMENT but obvious was gay why is she telling this his mother is still alive that is disrespectful if he didn't say it whom give her that right

Petty Patty, indeed. Everyone in and out of the biz knew Lutha was gay, but this IS NOT Patty's story to tell. Patty should have kept her mouth shut.

Anonymous said...

She didn't say anything we didn't already know! I'm not mad!

Anonymous said...

The rumor that Gregory Hines was gay is old news.

Luther being gay is just known. His boyfriend was his long time backup singer who now sings backup for Retha on occasion.

Anonymous said...

And as far as Patti's comments if Luther wanted to die with people thinking it was a possibility he wasn't gay she should have left it that way. He had the opportunity after he almost died the first time but he chose not to. Just because his mother died is no reason to out him if he didn't want to be outed.

Anonymous said...

I ain't mad at Patty. I ain't mad about the pies either. Luther was a fat greasy homo and we loved his music. Back then we didn't have social media to ruin shit. He's gone and at the end of the day his legacy will live on. Just like Patti's will.

No matter how much a parent will deny their child's sexuality, believe me.. they know. Gotta family member right now who refuses to believe her son is gay. So she avoids that convo altogether and tries to make it seem like he's just got other things more important things...like hand out with his male friends.

Anonymous said...

Dang 6:27p did you have to call the deceased man fat and greasy? Lol

Anonymous said...

Who is singing backup for ReRe? That's a bunch of shoebidy boop I went to see her in Coney Island like 7 years ago and she basically didn't know the words to her own songs

Patti need to do pies and not bring up dead people business.

And if Lutha died of Aids and he and Greg were lovers what in the tap dancing hell does that say about Gregs health.

Although we have always known...This wasn't nobody's business but his.

Hey Patti STFU and focus on your pies. There is no need for you to be telling this messy queen anything. Anyway who cares who he has sex with! He is a legend!

Anonymous said...

Why doesn't she out herself, she was rumored to be gay back in the day. Hypocrite.

Anonymous said...

She's wrong as fuck for that....

Luther (Ronnie) loved his mom. We talked at the salon whenever Luther had his hair styled by Mr Charles on Melrose & Vine. Beautiful & Kind Is What I remember. Patti has no right speaking on Luther's sexuality especially after his death.

@12:00 PM I didn't know you could get a jheri curl reactivated in California back then. I can barely find a person to cornrow my hair for weaves.

You know how when folks get old, they do and say just about anything to get some attention? My MIL is going thru this right now. It's annoying AF, but it happens.
