Pop star and The Voice coach Jessie J has dismissed a claim that she is a lesbian hiding her sexuality to avoid putting off fans.

The singer - whose hits include Price Tag - said the suggestion, made in a book published earlier this month, was “untrue”.

Jessie has made no secret of the fact she is attracted to men and women, but a new unauthorised biography claimed she was in fact gay.

The singer posted a message on Twitter to rubbish the story. She wrote: “It’s funny how many people I’ve dated/slept with that I’ve never even met, according to the tabloids.

“BUT what’s that?! *whispers, because its a secret* I’m really a lesbian?! Ha! Thanks for writing yet another boring untrue story.”

She listed the names of other stars with whom she has reportedly been linked adding “£noneofitstrue”.
