Kid Cudi hasn’t spoken about his sexuality publicly, but he has been a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community.
After seeing him in the wedding dress at the award ceremony, some were quick to call him gay, while others wondered if he was straight.
This isn’t the first time the rapper has been subjected to such rumors. In June 2021, a similar discussion about the singer’s sexual orientation had taken place when he wore a dress on Saturday Night Live.
