Emily’s Mother Didn’t want her to Reveal her Sexuality

“By the time I was ready to say ‘Hey, I’m in love with this girl, this is what happened,’ they were like, ‘Oh, I already knew that.’ And it was painful because you need to get ready for that experience,”

Emily said in an interview with The Real in 2021.

“I never told her and she passed away, and that’s the one thing I regret. But I know she knew. I know she knew because we had a really incredible relationship. And that’s the one thing I say: you can’t let anybody take you from your path. You gotta be yourself.”
