Rapper ILoveMakonnen has come out in gay in a touching series of tweets.

The 27-year-old Grammy nominated performer, whose real name is Makonnen Sheran, took to his Twitter on Thursday night (January 19) to make the announcement.

“Someone said to me next time they see me, they was gonna f**k me, I said next time I see me, I’m gonna love me up. As a fashion icon, I can’t tell u about everybody else’s closet, I can only tell u about mine, and it’s time I’ve come out,” he wrote.

Makonnen added, “And since y’all love breaking news, here’s some old news to break, I’m gay. And now I’ve told u about my life, maybe u can go life yours❤”
