Symone added: ‘… 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. … I am a light being made from love. And my career is the only thing I would like to put on display, not my personal life. Kisses!’

Her feature film credits include College Road Trip, The Princess Diaries 2, Dr. Dolittle and its sequel Dr. Dolittle 2.
