Dolly Parton is a singing icon. She has had a very successful career that has spanned numerous decades and even generations of fans. Now, she is once again speaking out about a pesky rumor that won't seem to go away.
Parton expressed frustration with rumors about her personal love life. Numerous gossip sites claimed she has a "secret lover" that is actually her friend, Judy Ogle.
Dolly called Judy her "girlfriend" but says it is simply a platonic relationship. She believes that rumors are simply part of the fame although she wishes they would just stop making these kinds of things up. She has a wonderful marriage with her husband.
“So people say that — because you can’t really have a great relationship with a woman. I’m not gay but I have so many gay friends and I accept everybody who they are,” Parton said.
"Parton and her husband, Carl Dean, 76, have been married for 53 years, which, for showbiz standards is exceedingly rare. The duo has rarely been seen in public together," reported Fox News.
