The viral rapper, real name Montero Lamar Hill, has long been the subject of rumors that he is straight and pretending to be ghey to further his career.
Fans point to his old Twitter page on which he lusted for rapper Nicki Minaj.
LNX "came out" in a series of tweets in 2019.
Before then, he played the straight role to a T -- even dating Miley Cyrus' younger sister, Noah.
He routinely keeps his fans off balance with confusing tweets.
just cuz i’m gay don't mean i’m not straight

His management claimed he is "gender fluid" - meaning he refuses to be tied down to one gender.
LNX claimed he was only joking when he "came out" as ghey.
In 2020, he claimed that his coming out on the final day of Pride Month was just an elaborate joke. "I was never gay. I said it to build up fuel for aprils fools day. Ha got u guys," he tweeted.
i was never gay. i said it to build up fuel for aprils fools day. ha got u guys.
