Rihanna's Alleged Anti-Gay Comments are False

Posted Friday February 21, 2014 9:03 PM GMT

Putting an end to alleged sexual orientation insults, a fan who claimed that Rihanna told him he was going to hell because he is gay has released a statement saying he made up the entire accusation.

Benvoy Seals went on Instagram this Thursday (February 20), posting a picture of a comment he made on one of the "Pour It Up" singer’s recent birthday photos, attaching Rihanna’s reported response.

Benovy's comment read, "Rihanna u going to hell girl," and Rihanna’s alleged reply states, "Arnt you gay?… Nuff said blah!"

However, Benvoy took down the photo on Friday, posting a new one that reads, "The picture is a fake. Rihanna would never say something like that. I apologize on my behalf. I clearly wasn’t thinking. Sorry Rihanna if I ‘F’ up your birthday," also telling TMZ, "I lied. I don’t know why. I just did."
