Stevie Wonder saw this coming!

On November 13, 2004, former co-host of The View Star Jones married Al Reynolds. Their public romance was all over the tabloids with rumors that Reynolds was gay. The marriage didn’t last long and the couple split in 2008.

Speculation over the infamous ex-husband of Star Jones’ sexuality have always swirled and now, Reynolds, is officially putting the rumors to bed.

“Ever since I have been in the public eye, people have been speculating on my sexuality. And ‘speculating’ is a kind word for how it actually played out.” Reynolds told Radar. “With anger and disdain, people have been calling me out as gay, closeted, a sham and even nastier; much nastier.”

In the past, Reynolds choose not to label his sexuality — he explains why he hid his preference for so long.

“As a Black man, that message and the hate and homophobia were multiplied to the ninth degree. I saw no path out that would resolve my personal feelings with my deeply held and ingrained religious beliefs.” He added, “This internal dissonance was a powerful thing, like a cancer eating at one’s soul. This resulted in some tough times — homelessness, unemployment, dependence on drugs and alcohol, public assistance, and, at the center of it all, a deep, deep shame and a feeling of unworthiness of the love of God. I didn’t believe I deserved to live a good life, and I clearly didn’t.”

Today, Reynolds bravely accepts who he is after doing some soul searching.

“Today I accept myself as a bisexual man. I have learned that sexual orientation is not binary, at least for me. I am capable of loving both sexes, and I have done both. My relationships, all of them, have been honest and based on my attraction to the other person. When I am in love I don’t equivocate, nor do I waver.”

Congrats to Al on his decision to come out.
