Patti LaBelle Drops The Bomb On Luther Vandross' Secret Here...

One of the greatest singers of all time, Patti LaBelle recently dropped the bomb on why Luther Vandross never came out of the closet. Gay rumors had followed Vandross for most of his career but they were never confirmed before he died back in July 1, 2005.

Patti LaBelle told Andy Cohen on a recent episode of "Watch What Happens Live":

“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. He had a lot of lady fans and he told me he just didn’t want to upset the world.”

Well, there you have it. Gay or nah, Luther Vandross' music has always played a big part in our lives (especially mine as an 80s baby). Our condolences go out to his family.
