Chile!!! This is some high grade organic peppermint tea right here! How about Auntie Patti has finally confirmed what we knew all along about the great late Luther Vandross’s sexuality. Patti was on an episode of Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live”,  when Patti said, “We talked about it. 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 the he just didn’t want to upset the world.”

We never cared anyway. His voice and personality was so magical that it overshadowed everything about his personal life. Rest in peace Luther.


We Love Luther!
