Raven-Symoné has come out on the side of privacy.

The former Cosby Show cutie and That's So Raven star has responded to a National Enquirer report that she has a live-in girlfriend with a series of tweets informing the public that she never felt any need to address her love life before.

And she certainly doesn't feel the need now.

"I'm living my PERSONAL life the way I'm happiest," Raven-Symoné tweeted Friday.

"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.

"However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I'm not harming anyone."

According to the Enquirer, Raven-Symoné (her given last name is Pearman) is living with America's Next Top Model cycle 18 alum AzMarie Livingston in New York.

The 26-year-old singer-actress is currently starring on Broadway in Sister Act.
