The Next Edition reports that an online publication had alleged that Emmanuel was bi-sexual citing the frosty relationship between him and his love interest, Liquorose as the basis.

The publication also claimed that Emmanuel and fellow ex-housemate, Liquorose’s relationship ended because she caught him having sex with a man.

The report further alleged that Emmanuel told Liquorose that he was bi-sexual.

Reacting on his Instagram page, he denied the allegation and threatened to sue those behind the spurious claims.

He wrote on Instagram: “Hello friends, family and fans, I have recently been receiving messages from some misguided people who are making attempts to tarnish my reputation, one I have painstakingly built.

“These persons peddling these rumors do not have any proof for the allegations they are making, but just to gain cheap publicity and defame me, do not fall for them.

“They will be hearing from my lawyers and will surely pay for this embarrassment.”
