Former child star Raven-Symoné recently opened up with Oprah Winfrey on OWN’s ‘Where Are They Now’.
Oprah began her ‘no holds barred’ interview by referencing a tweet Raven sent out last year that had the net buzzing about her sexuality.

Oprah asked the talented actress if that was her way of coming out, to which she responded:
That was my way of saying I’m proud of the country. But, I will say that I’m in an amazing, happy relationship with my partner. A woman.
Symone, 28, also set the record straight about why she keeps her personal life private and how she doesn’t label her sexuality or her race, stating:
I’m an American. I’m not an African-American.

The famed poet/author and legend was one of the first guests who appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s Master Class.
