Omarion spent the weekend (once again) angrily reiterating his heterosexuality on Twitter and over the radio. The R&B poptart was the subject of a ridiculously obvious "coming out" hoax: A faux press release declaring that Omarion was a "proud bisexual man."
The R&B crooner called in to DJ Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 radio show to set the record straight regarding his sexuality. Flex offered Omarion a platform to discuss the release, which was sent by a fictitious public relations representative by the name of Sharron Wright. "First and foremost let me say, I did not release that statement," the singer said. "You know, whatever people like is their business but I'm not gay or bisexual. I love women and that's just what it is."
The former B2K member ... was angered at the way several media outlets handled the fake statement without verifying sources. "I know Twitter's fun and we all have our moments and we joke around, but I'm looking at this as people have to start doing their research a little bit more – especially with celebrities and superstars," Omarion stated. "You can't just believe everything that you hear." The 'Ice Box' singer referred to the false release as "outrageous" and informed his supporters globally that he had no interest in men because "it's not that type of party."
The weekend hoax came only a day or two after the latest salvo in the escalating Twitter and YouTube beef among members of the former chart-topping boyband B2K. Ricardo "Ricky Romance" Thornton, brother of De'Mario "Raz B" Thornton, blasted Omarion and claimed the singer was "fully gay" and it was an "open secret" in the industry.
In November 2008, former B2K band member Dreux Pierre "Lil Fizz" Frédéric made similar claims about Omarion. O's camp later leaked news about an upcoming wedding to a bisexual (female) stripper and also leaked photos of an alleged "sex tape."
Omarion is currently touring Japan.
