American Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin says he expects to “probably be alone for the rest of my life as far as a mate is concerned.”
Donnie McClurkin, 61, had previously opened up years ago about his past struggles with homosexuality, which he called a “perversion,” and claimed that he was able to suppress his sexual orientation. He admitted that he still had urges to be with men but chose not to.
The Grammy-winning pastor is featured in an interview airing on Easter Sunday (April 4) on TV One’s “Uncensored.” The network posted clips of the interview on its website in advance of the airing.
“I didn’t know really what a woman wanted.I’ve messed up more than I’ve had good. My past relationships were a sprinkling of everything – men and women. When things get rough I go back into my safe place – my music and my ministry. Never having a long-term relationship in my life and never being married, I chalked that up. I will probably be alone for the rest of my life as far as a mate is concerned,” he said.
