Former child star Raven-Symone of the 80s sitcom “The Cosby Show,” indicated for the first time Friday that she is in fact a lesbian, after years of speculation.

“I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted,” the actress said in a statement through her representatives.

On August 2, Raven-Symone, who played adorable Olivia on "The Cosby Show," indicated for the first time she is a lesbian. She first tweeted the news: "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." She later released a statement saying, "I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to." - Credit: Getty/AP

“I was excited to hear today that more states legalized gay marriage. I, however am not currently getting married, but it is great to know I can now, should I wish to,” Symone said.

Earlier Friday, Symone posted a tweet: “I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.”

In response to media inquiries after that tweet, her representatives said that “Raven is not getting married. She was just supporting the fact that she heard on NPR that more states legalized gay marriage today.”

Symone then subsequently issued her official statement.

In the past, she has said her sexual orientation was a private matter. “My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life,” she wrote on her Twitter page in May 2012.
