Christopher Morgan Blasts Gay Rumors From Kenya Moore
Kim Fields already issued her own epic clapback at Kenya Moore for insinuating that her husband Christopher Morgan is a down-low brother-lover, and that it’s widely known and spoken about in their D-list Hollywood circles.
However, Chris himself has remained pretty mum on Kenya’s comments about his sexuality up to this point. In a recent sit-down with E!online, Chris finally revealed why he didn’t speak up and where those rumors actually came from…
It’s interesting. When someone spreads lies about you, you can either go at them in a defensive manner and be seen as defensive, or you can just let a lie be a lie. And she kind of put me in the middle with that situation because how I would handle that situation without the entire world watching is different than I would when someone spreads a lie about you in front of the nation and world. So, I felt immediately it was going to be important for me, at some time, to set the record straight that she had fabricated the entire conversation. There is no one in the industry that calls me anything other than my name, especially to my face. Kimmy and I weren’t together in the Living Single days. So, she had to stretch pretty far to get that. [Kenya claims she first learned of the rumors surrounding Chris when she guest starred on Kim’s Fox sitcom, which ran from 1993-1998. Only problem? Kim was married to someone else at the time. She didn’t marry Chris until 2007.]
Now, I understand, I’m a Broadway performer without a real name, as far as Hollywood goes, and when Kim and I first got together, there was all kinds of speculation about me. Was I a deadbeat? Was I broke? Was I a drug addict? Was I a homosexual? There were all kind of rumors about me because nobody knew who this guy was dating, and eventually marrying, Kim Fields. She basically took that speculation, one aspect of it, and ran with it.
Chris also says that Kenya’s lie was offensive, insinuating that because he sings and dances, clearly he must be gay — or that Broadway is a profession only for “whimsical” men. But at the end of the day, she’s only hurting herself since she claims to be such a cornerstone of the entertainment industry…
It’s funny. Kenya says a lot of things that are insulting. Some of them she means, and some of them she doesn’t. The problem is she doesn’t really know. Now, speaking specifically to this point, again, being in the industry that I’m in, being the person that I am, without judgements on anyone’s personal life, I have a lot of people in my life, a lot of friends in my life, a lot of colleagues in my life that are homosexuals. I love them dearly as the people that they are. I know that they were offended by the statements made. And it’s disappointing to me that someone would make such reckless statements without thinking of the true repercussions of it. What I mean by the true repercussions of it is, the man who’s your boss, you just labeled as weak or inept or unable or lesser than. And I think that’s pretty thoughtless and stupid, if you ask me, honestly. And she’s going to have to deal with Andy Cohen on that. She’s going to have to deal with a bunch of the other people that are above her on that. She’s going to have to deal with the quote-unquote industry that in her mind loves her so much over that. And that’s not my business, that’s hers. I did not dig that hole.
Well, it seems as if Kenya’s retelling of the rumors wasn’t COMPLETELY fabricated, since Chris says it’s not the first time someone has leveled gay speculation his way. But it was still inappropriate to speak of someone’s husband that way behind their back and on-camera…
