Wendy Williams Disagrees w/ Patti LaBelle Outing Luther Vandross
Wendy Williams says that Patti LaBelle was 100% wrong for recently discussing Luther Vandross’ sexuality. As previously reported, earlier this week, LaBelle commented on why she felt the late singer never revealed publicly that he was gay. She stated,
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.
LaBelle also suggested that the news may have affected Vandross’ female fans.
He had a lot of lady fans and he told me he just didn’t want to upset the world.
Wendy weighed in on Patti’s remarks, saying that she should NOT have commented. The talk show host says,
She should have said ‘no comment’. If he had asked me something like that, then – it’s okay for me to talk about it. I didn’t know Luther Vandross.
He wasn’t my friend. But, it’s not okay to talk about it when it’s your best friend. You know? It’s like a violation.
