R&B singer Trey Songz has shut down speculation about his sexuality after a photo of him allegedly kissing a man surfaced online.

The image, which shows a black male resembling Songz puckering up with a guy, recently went viral, prompting several sites to suggest that the Bottoms Up hitmaker was secretly gay.

However, the 28 year old has now taken to his Twitter.com account to dismiss the rumour, insisting it's not him in the picture.

In a post, he writes, "On my way to Virginia to spend the holidays with my family. No senselessness, lies or hate can take away my joy."

This isn't the first time Songz's sexuality has come into question - during an interview earlier this year (12), he sent gossips into a spin when he clarified a question about who he believed was the hottest model, asking, "(Do you mean) female?"
