Retired rapper, podcaster, and media personality Joe Budden has announced that he is bisexual. The big news comes after fans have long speculated about Joe’s sexuality. He has only publicly dated women previously.
On a recent episode of his podcast, Budden finally answered all the speculation. He came out as bisexual very frankly. Then, he asked for advice on how to spread the big news.
“I’m bisexual. How do I spread this news? How do I spread the word? Yo, listen, I like guys and girls. Spread the word. I’m down.”
Budden has been romantically linked to Cyn Cantana, Tahiry Jose, and Kaylin Garcia in the past. He is not publicly known to have been any relationships with men. Obviously, up until this point, he would’ve kept those romances private if they were happening.
Joe took to Twitter in the aftermath of the announcement to acknowledge that his coming out had started a conversation. He encouraged fans to continue to let others know about it. It sounds like he’s comfortable letting anyone who’s listening to know.
“Ahhhhhhh, i see the word got out!! Continue to spread the word pls”
Budden was accused of workplace sexual harassment by a co-worker earlier this year. He has since apologized for the incident. Now, it sounds like he is looking to become an activist for tolerance and acceptance.
