Raven-Symoné is making headlines today because of a telling Twitter post she made just hours ago.

The That’s So Raven star tweeted that she can “finally get married” thanks to the government.

For several years, the 27-year-old actress has been plagued with lesbian rumors. Her recent tweet has left many people assuming that she “coming out” by expressing her support of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, allowing same sex marriages to be recognized by the U.S. government.

“However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I’m not harming anyone,” she continued.

In a statement to theGrio from Symone’s publicist, the actress says:

“I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted.  I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage.  I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to.”
