HONEY G and her so called plan for global domination have been brutally halted by music mogul Simon Cowell after she was dropped by his record label

She is now focused on becoming a hip-hop sex symbol.

The X Factor former contestant, has stripped off for a photo shoot with the Sun and come out as a lesbian. Here’s all the details…

According to the Sun, the rapper Honey G revealed she is gay in a sexy photo shoot.

Honey G‘s real name is Anna Georgette Gilford and she was born on March 12, 1981.

She told the Sun that she is from Harrow in North London – which she refers to as “North Weezy” while in character.

Honey attended an exclusive grammar school, Dr Challoner’s in Buckinghamshire, where she was captain of her tennis team – with Amal Clooney attending the same school. Her mum was a classical pianist, her dad a dentist.

Honey’s own wealth is not yet known as she has struggled to find chart success – and her former business was revealed to be worth just £1 in October 2016.

In an exclusive interview Honey G revealed to the Sun that she is a lesbian and looking for love with a woman.

she said: “I have dabbled with men before, but I’m gay and looking for a female partner that I want to settle down with.”

But she also had relationships with men, explaining: “I have been with men in the past. But after I had my second experience with a woman I decided that I wanted to be with women.”

Honey added that her close friends and family know about her sexuality, but she wasn’t ready to speak about it during her controversial stint on Simon Cowell’s reality show.

Honey G became famous on the thirteenth series of The X Factor in 2016 starring as one of the Over 25s and mentored by Sharon Osbourne.

After auditioning (she performed Work It by Missy Elliott in her first audition) Honey was voted off from the show during the six-chair challenge – however she was brought back for Judges Houses when a contestant Ivy-Grace Parades was unable to travel to Los Angeles due to visa issues and Sharon ultimately chose Honey as one of her final contestants.

Honey was voted off the show in week 9 – but returned to perform in the live final the following week and sparked controversy when she revealed she had already been signed by Simon Cowell to his Syco record label and would be releasing her debut single, The Honey G Show, soon after (the single was released on 23 December 2016 but was a chart flop).

She was a divisive contestant while on The X Factor, with some labelling her a novelty act, but others (including rap legend Snoop Dogg) branding her a credible rapper (Honey herself declared she is the “UK’s top rapper” during her time on The X Factor).

Despite being signed to Syco in December 2016, Honey was dropped by the record label by April 2017.

In May 2017, the Honey G established her own record label – H to the O Music – and in June she released her defiant single Hit You With The Honey G.

Summing up her confidence in the new record, Honey told The Sun’s Bizarre column: “I’m at a point in my life where idols are becoming rivals.”
