While the 73-year-old icon might have thought she was being respectful of her friend, social media wasn’t happy about her speaking of Luther’s private life.
Patti Labelle messy. We could’ve lived without knowing Luther Vandross was really gay.

I hope Luther Vandross' ghost haunts the shit out of Patti Labelle and old messy ass Andy Cohen! Don't @ me either!

Andy and Patti LaBelle really ain't for this. Everyone knew how private Luther was and that should still be respected even though he's no longer here. pic.twitter.com/mOdGLaGKgN
