Patti LaBelle was on Watch What Happens Live and she discussed why Luther Vandross never came out. Luther, who died in 2005, never publicly commented on his sexual orientation. Patti explained his decision, by saying, “We talked about it. Basically, he did not want his mother to know…although she might have known, but he wasn’t going to come out and say this to the world.”  Patti went on to say Luther told her “He had a lot of lady fans and how he just didn’t want to upset the world. But it was hard for him.”
