Shortly after that, while more and more sites picked up on the story, the original on BOSSIP disappeared. A commenter on TrueClefMusic.com speculated as to why:
Yes. There's another Brandon (with an 'O'-- pictured above alone and w/Trey and below in his Youtube vid singing the f*ck out of Pretty Wings), Brandon Hines who has worked with Trey in the past. If all the rumors gleaned from net sources are true, then Trey supposedly dated this Brandon (with and 'O') before moving on and finding another hot Brandin (with an 'I'). Well, he's got good taste.
People in comment threads shriek about the impossibility of a black male artist coming out. How would it go over if Trey sang to a man in his video? It should be fine, we know, but our world is far from perfect. The black community still has a lot of backwards ideas about what being a man really is. Sadly, a lot of us still see the thug/drug-dealer/convict as more manly than an out and talented gay man.
Trey may believe this himself - his management certainly would.
Whatever. Below is the original story that BOSSIP, for whatever reason ($$$), decided to delete (to no avail).
This here is some juicy gossip. I'm sure some of you will hate and some will LOVE IT! A lot of people believe that Trey Songz is gay and this latest rumor does nothing but confirms it. Trey Songz is allegedly dating a male employee of Jay-Z record label Roc Nation. He goes by the name of Brandin Deida. He’s described as being a 6’4 lightskinned young man who sports waves and a few tattoos. Check out the article below..
According to a Bossip inside source, Trey and Brandin met in Los Angeles on September 12 — a day before the MTV Video Music Awards.
Our source tells us the two have avoided being photographed together thus far, but Trey is always visiting Brandin at the 1411 Roc building in NYC where he works since Trey has spent a great deal of time in New York since finishing his Beacon Theater dates on 10/14 and 10/15 when his tour with Monica wrapped up.
Apparently Trey and Brandin have been trying hard to cover their tracks and have a set routine for the hotel stays. The pair are currently staying at the same Seattle hotel where Brandin has a room to himself and Trey does as well. Our source tells us that despite the separate rooms, Trey and Brandin often end up being together for the night.
“Everything they do is very elaborate,” the source says of their attempt to cover up.”They don’t ride in the same cars either.”
