August Alsina has the internet on fire with assumptions about his sexuality after the Surreal life finale. August shared that his “friend” helped him experience newfound love. Is he a friend or lover?
Singer August Alsina has the public wondering if he has come out as gay after he expressed his love for his friend Zu on the finale of VH1’s The Surreal Life.
The “Make It Home” artist says his friend helped him experience and learn genuine love.
Zu is an artist and close friend of Alsina, who has even collaborated with him on music projects. Their latest drop was a song titled “2 am,” which they dropped in June.
Fans on Twitter had mixed reactions to the New Orleans native’s announcement.
One fan showed support for the rumored lovers by sharing videos of them together in the studio and at an event:
Another user wondered why the public was jumping to conclusions when Alsina never came out and confirmed his sexuality:
“Did he say this was his boyfriend or are y’all making assumptions? Rather of August Alsina is gay or not. I want y’all to understand that men can show one another how to love and be loved in a healthy way without being gay. The same way women do for one another.”
Due to the trials and tribulations in his life with losing several family members, Alsina holds friendships dear to his heart.
In September, August Alsina was allegedly involved in a scuffle with Tory Lanez.
At the time, the singer, known for his “entanglement” with Jada Pinkett Smith, posted pictures of himself after the assault on Instagram. Here’s what happened.
