Jessie J Hits Out At 'Secret Lesbian' Report

Jessie J has raised her Voice over allegations she is a 'secret lesbian', branding the report "another boring untrue story".

An explosive unauthorised biography of the The Voice judge claims Jessie was advised to cover up her true sexuality in case it hurts her music career and to say she's bi-sexual instead of gay as it is "trendy".

According to The Sun, the book's author, Chloe Govan, alleges: "Jessie might have been with boys in the past - but she is 100% gay. Jessie was openly lesbian and didn't hide it. She was advised not to come out though. Certain people thought being bi was trendy, exotic and a fashion statement. It would increase her allure. Being gay would alienate people.

"They knew how important image was and asked her to tone it down a bit. There are so many homophobes out and there were fears of a career-damaging backlash."

However the fuming singer has hit out the claims, tweeting: "Its funny how many people I've dated slept with that I've never even met according to the tabloids. BUT what's that?! *whispers because its a secret* I'm really a lesbian?! Ha! Thanks for writing yet another boring untrue story. I thought I was still dating Tinie, NO Ellie G, NO Mark Wright....bla bla bla! #cantkeepup #noneofitstrue."

The singer has never been quiet about her bisexuality in the past, telling a recent issue of Glamour Magazine: "The frustrating thing is that if I was with a guy right now, I'd be (considered) straight. But if I was with a girl, I'd be 'gay,'.

"When I was with my ex-girlfriend, I used to take her around and say, 'This is my girlfriend.' People would be comfortable with it because I was.

"That's what annoys me about the media. I've never tried to make (my sexuality) something that's going to put me in newspapers or magazines. I'm never, ever going to let it be something that sells my music. Sexuality shouldn't define you."
