Tyler Perry feeds gay rumor mill, pleads the fifth

Add this share

Atlanta’s own movie mogul and perennial gay rumor dodger Tyler Perry is being hounded once again over his not so vague sexual orientation. Dishy black blog Media TakeOut is like a dog with a bone, and it’s not letting go.

The “confirmed bachelor” can’t even try to sell skeptics on a wild goose chase of possible straight dalliances. No one was buying that he may be dating a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star when Perry acted all coy to gay Bravo exec Andy Cohen and Sharon Osbourne on “Watch What Happens Live” (video above).

It sure as hell didn’t sway Media TakeOut from its ongoing mission: Get Tyler Perry to come out. The site says that since there’s no way he is dating a woman from the show, the other rumor must be true that he is dating one of the “RHOA” gays.

Now it's PRETTY CLEAR that Tyler ain't never "date" any of the FEMALE castmembers. So it's either Miss Lawrence, Derek J or that OLD QUEEN that was friends with Sheree in the first season . . . what's his name again???

Hey, just because Media TakeOut’s sensationalist perspective is obvious, that doesn’t mean they’re wrong. Ask Don Lemon. Or ATL rapper K. Michelle. Or NFL player Kerry Rhodes. And besides, when it comes to Perry, even the calmer minds that prevail at EnStarz think so too
