A while ago, Wade gushed about his beautiful daughter. Talking about his 12-year-old transgender child during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the proud dad of four disclosed how his daughter came out as transgender to him and Union.
He said his daughter, Zaya, came home one day and announced her decision. Zaya, who was born a boy named Zion, had told her parents one day that she would like to live her truth. She also told her parents to address her as Zaya and reference her as she and her.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that American bisexual singer Demi Lovato has admitted she would totally love to have a taste of popstar Rihanna’s lips.
The 27-year-old, who has dated both men and women in her past, said she would love to kiss Rihanna.
Demi made the confession on Ellen DeGeneres’s show while discussing her return to music following a drug overdose in 2018.
"Look, I just want to make out, okay? I mean, we could do a song together too. Maybe we make out in the video, I do not know. Shooting my shot,” the 27-year-old said.
