Elsewhere in the interview, LaBelle joked that Luther Vandross got into the music industry by “stealing” and selling her clothes.

LaBelle previously touched on Luther’s sexuality in 2017 during an interview on “Watch What Happens Live.” She explained, “We talked about it. Basically, he did not want his mother to be… although she might have known, but he wasn’t going to come out and say this to the world. And he had a lot of lady fans and he told me he just didn’t want to upset the world.”

Watch the trailer above via the Instagram clip. The episode is set to drop Thursday on Revolt TV.
