After years of rumor and speculation, Queen Latifah is finally out of the closet.
Last week it was reported that Queen Latifah will be joining other celeb couples by getting hitched in California now that same-sex marriage has been recognized by the state's highest court. The Cleveland Leader reports that:
According to this week's edition of the National Enquirer, Queen Latifah plans to marry her partner of five years, personal trainer Jeannette Jenkins.
Queen Latifah has been very tight-lipped about her relationship with Jenkins, and told Ebony magazine in 2007 that she would not comment on the rumor that Jenkins was her girlfriend. She didn't deny it, she was just annoyed that she was asked.
Neither Queen Latifah nor her partner have ever officially come out. Queen Latifah has, however, given her special friend attention and treatment that suggests they're more than just good friends. Last year she bought Jeannette a Range Rover, and had it delivered to a restaurant to surprise her.
According to the National Enquirer, the couple are "planning an intimate ceremony with close famiy and friends." They are also reportedly interested in adopting an American baby.
First of all, I don't think anyone is surprised about this news. All those motorcycles should have been a dead give away about Queen Latifah's lezzy tendencies. And if that wasn't enough, just look at her film credits: Chicago and Hairspray? Totally family!
Here's wishing Queen Latifah all the best for her upcoming nuptuals!
