OMarion most definitely taking the good with the bad in stride…”it aint easy being me”, he posted on twitter. The 26-year-old singer/dancer made a special announcement on January 8th to counter and earlier bogus announcement that said he was coming out of the closet.

Several blogs took the bait and published the phony release that claimed he was formally announcing that he is “bisexual” The unedited press release read: “I pride myself in being an honest, God Fearing, respectful man. I have kept my personal life private and wanted to keep it that way. Unfortunately, others are interested in profiting from my anguish; so before they can do that, I will clarify things. I am not at all what certain ex-band members are trying to paint me as, I am however a respectable, mature, proud, bisexual man.”

Blackvoices.com’s Jawn Murray is reporting that the fake press announcement was attributed to Sharron Wright at Sony Music, but points out that Omarion (real name: Omari Ishmael Grandberry) hasn’t been on that label since April of 2008.

Francoise Blachette of The Purple Agency, who currently reps Omarion, promptly responded to BlackVoices’ inquiry:

“The previously released statement regarding Omarion is false and was generated for negative publicity by an unknown person. Omarion will not contribute to anything negative said or done against him. Omarion respects all of his fans, no matter religion, sexuality, or race,” she said in a statement.

Omarion also wanted folks to hear directly from regarding the matter, so he sent out this tweet:
