She has surely played such roles in several movies but that is where it all ends according to Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson who has been forced to refute news making the rounds that she is into same-sex affair.
In an interview with Vanguard, the One Night in Vegas actress denounces lesbianism in its entirety.
“Lesbianism is against my religious beliefs, it’s against my cultural norms and I think it was very mischievous for people to insinuate such about someone they hardly knew.
The rumour was started by a notorious website in Ghana last year when they reported that they had never seen me with a man. In their warped and twisted calculation, I was thus a lesbian. Can you imagine such crass reasoning?”
The actress who said he has forgiven those circulating the reports, restated once more that she would forever remain a heterosexual woman. “That they had not seen me with a man, and may have seen me with my girlfriends going out to have fun, and then automatically I was a lesbian.
It was a hatchet job – an attempt to discredit me, but they all failed. I am heterosexual and would remain one till the end.
“When you are in the public light as I have been blessed and privileged to being, your life becomes a public property and some mischievous people will say all manner of things about you. It comes with the territory, so I forgive them.”
Yvonne Nelson has actually been reported to have had relationships, however brief, with a couple of popular entertainers including Iyanya, Ice Prince and Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo.
