Child actress Raven-Symone quitely let it slip that she is in fact a lesbian after tweeting about gay marriage last week. The Cosby Show and That's So Raven star told her Twitter followers, "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." The U.S. Supreme Court voted 5-4 to stike down a provision of DOMA that disqualified married same-sex couples from receiving federal benefits in June.

Rumors emerged as early as last year that the actress was a lesbian living with androgynous American Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston. Raven refused to reveal her sexuality, tweeting in May 2012 "I'm living my PERSONAL life the way I'm happiest. I'm not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I'm dating. and I shall not start now. My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings to know. I'm not one for a public display of my life."

Although Raven's Aug. 2 tweet revealed that she may indeed be a homosexual, she remains tight-lipped about her relationship. She explained in a statement to E! online "I am very happy that gay marriage is opening up around the country and is being accepted. 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."
