Nollywood and Ghallywood actress, Yvonne Nelson has come out to clear the air over lesbianism allegations warped against her some time ago by a Ghanaian news website. She claims she is heterosexual and would remain one till the end. She believes the “hatched job” done by the Ghanaian website was an attempt to discredit her reputation and personality.
In an interview Nigerian Vanguard Magazine, she said “Look at me….what do you think? Of course, I am not a lesbian”
The stunning sexy-legged Ghanaian actress said: “Lesbianism is against my religious beliefs, it’s against my cultural norms and I think it was very mischievous for people to insinuate such about someone they hardly knew.”
The rumour, Nelson said “was started by a notorious website in Ghana last year when they reported that they had never seen me with a man,” she recalled, adding: “In their warped and twisted calculation, I was thus a lesbian. Can you imagine such crass reasoning?”
“That they had not seen me with a man, and may have seen me with my girlfriends going out to have fun, and then automatically I was a lesbian. It was a hatchet job – an attempt to discredit me, but they all failed. I am heterosexual and would remain one till the end,” she said.
She said: “When you are in the public light as I have been blessed and privileged to being, your life becomes a public property, and some mischievous people will say all manner of things about you. It comes with the territory, so I forgive them.”
