Daddy Yankee Gay Rumors Resurface After Fake Photo Hits Twitter


UPDATE: Daddy Yankee's rep has sent an official release stating, "Online blogs and social media are once again to blame for the spread of false news reports, which other media outlets have also shared regarding a public figure. The reports circulating regarding Daddy Yankee's declaration of homosexuality was falsely written by an online outlet known for fabricating false information and spreading it through social media sites."

More rumors about Daddy Yankee's sexual orientation have hit the web after reports claim that the reggaetonero came clean about his homosexuality at a club in Puerto Rico named La Cueva Pelekas, according to El Nacional. In addition, a photo surfaced on Twitter showcasing a Big Boss lookalike making out with another man.  

There is an alleged press release, where El Cangri supposedly addresses the picture, "A photo has popped up that exposes a part of me, which I never felt comfortable addressing because of fear of getting rejected or criticized, but most importantly because of my family and the consequences."

The rumored statement goes on to say, "I think the time has come, not only as a human being, but in all aspects of life. I think love is the purest emotion, and the important thing is sharing those moments with someone special who you look at and forget all of the negative stuff. That's truly a gift."

However, last month Daddy Yankee strictly denied the allegations of being gay and confirmed to fans, "I'm 100% straight." He went on to say via Twitter, “Remember that the Internet is where lies become truth and the truth is a myth.”
