The Queen Is Coming Out. And Getting Married!

Queen Latifah, that is.

Rumor has it that Queen Latifah and her (rumored) girlfriend of nearly four years, Jeanette Jenkins, will soon be tying the knot.

MediaTakeOut.com is just one of the sites claiming ownership of the story: “…We can tell you that we’re 100% sure on this one. And we can also tell you that ABSOLUTELY NO ONE in the media (no magazines, no bloggers, no TV stations, no radio personalities – NO ONE) else is reporting this story right now.”

But the New York Post also wants in on the action, posting a blind item on Monday that asked: “WHICH big Hollywood actress is about to come out of the closet? She’s been living with her girlfriend in a small town, where all the neighbors know, and the two are now engaged to be married.” [Everyone Wants in on Latifah Wedding – E! Online]

If it’s true, I say congrats! to both. They make a beautiful couple.

Fun Living Single fact:
While the series is sometimes referred to as a “Black version of Friends“, it is worth noting that Living Single premiered a full season before Friends by the same studio under the same studio president, Tony Jonas.

    I have to say that this is sad and very troubling if you ask me, but to each his own. I personally find Latifah to be a very beautiful, intelligient and multi talented woman and I am sure quite a few other eligible batchelors would say the same. But hey maybe i am just being a true conservative and fed up with all of the homosexual relationships and marriages taking place considering all of this is wrong. Its sad that we as men have hurt so many women that they are turning to each other but at the same time it also shows that the strong black woman that held families together for years are no longer as strong as they believe they are.

  4. Racha Says:

    Well I’m a woman from Trenton,NJ and I once dated a few women from Newark and to me it was a wonderful experience and I wouldn”t take nothing from a woman from “Brick City”. Their strong, intelligent,and beautiful women and their “Go getters when it come to that money.” u go Latifah”

  5. BEBORAH Says:

    EVERY ON IS “HAPPY” WHAT DO GOD SAY ABOUT IT?

  6. Ritzz Says:

    Queen Latifah has been my role model for every, and this doesn’t change a thing, because she’s the same person no matter who she dates or marries. Congrats to you both on a happy future.

  7. Bootylicious Diva Cake Says:

    Its so sad that queen latifah could end up getting married to another woman. Yes, its not a big deal nowadays to see these horrible things happening in our generation…..is this sick or what? Could anyone tell me where it is written in the Bible or in the Quran that it is allowed to get married to ones sex? Latifah should wake up and be real….money is not everything!

  9. ree fields Says:

    QUEEN LATIFAH IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AND SHE CAN GET ANY AND I DO MEAN ANY MAN SHE WANTS! BY NO MEANS DO I WANT IT TO SOUND LIKE I AM JUDGING HER WHEN I SAY THIS BECAUSE I AM NOT! BUT WHAT’S WRONG IS JUST WRONG! I DON’T CARE WHO SAY IT’S BEAUTIFUL AND BLA-BLA-BLA IT’S WRONG. GOD IS AGAINST THAT SPIRIT NOT THE PERSON IT’S JUST THE WRONG SPIRIT WORKING IN THAT PERSON. EVERY HOMESEXUAL, LESBIAN, STUDD, DIKE, AND THE LIST GOES ON…. BETTER REPENT SOON! JESUS IS ON HIS WAY BACK AND HE DID NOT ORDAIN THINGS TO BE THAT WAY HE MADE WOMAN TO BE WITH MAN. NOT WOMAN AND WOMAN AND MAN WITH MAN THAT IS DISGUISTING IN THE EYE SIGHT OF THE LORD AND IF THEY WANT TO BE SAVED THEY BETTER REPENT NOW, BUT MY PRAYER IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE LORD KEEP ME FROM TTHESE DEVILISH SPIRITS THAT ARE WONDERING ALL AROUND THIS DEVILISH WORLD!

  10. lillj12 Says:

    Who Cares if men are with men and women are with women that is their disicion not gods. And if QUEEN LATIFAH wants to be with a girl she can if she really wants to its none of your business. its supposed to be personal. we shouldnt be talking about it anyway

  11. lillj12 Says:

    i like women to and its not like god is going to kill me if i do

  12. lillj12 Says:

    anybody going to tell me off.

    I DIDNT THINK SO SO SHUT UP

  13. lillj12 Says:

    WILLIAM AND REE FEILDS SHUT UP YOU GUYS OR SHOULD I SAY RETARDS SHOULD NOT BE TALKING ABOUT GAY MARRAGIES BECAUSE YOU GUYS ARE PROBABLY LIVEING WITH YOUR PARENTS SINGLE AND ALONE OR YOU GUYS ARE GAY TO BUT WONT ADMITT IT. SO I WOULDNT BE TALKING.

  14. lillj12 Says:

    Queen Latifah your not alone i had the exact same problem but i wasnt famous i was in school when people started to ask me the same questions if i was gay or if i was going out with a girl but i did what my heart told me to do i said nothing i ignored them and i just walked away. if the poperazze ask you that question just go on to another question and if all of them ask you the same question just walk away.

    P.S. If you need some help or some advise im not to jugde but i will help you and so will my sister.

  15. teri Says:

    I found love in my best friend , who is also a female and have been together for almost three years now; The Queen has always been my idol as she represents BBW and the strong side of all African-American females. ALL HAIL THE QUEEN and her lady!

  16. Keema Says:

    I always suspected she was gay. She was never feminine to me until Cover Girl.

  17. Niecey Says:

    Everytime someone comes out about being Gay, there is some idiot who wants to bring God in to the picture, saying its wrong. You have no idea what god thinks is right or wrong. If you live your life by the fiction in the bible, than you really need help. The bible is filled with contradictions and fabrications, and if your not smart enough to think for yourself than there is no hope for you. So many people think that being gay is a choice, but its not. You are born that way. Like I was. I lived a life that was a complete lie for 20 years and stayed married to a man I didn’t love. I say to any woman or man that know they are gay, do not live a lie, be true to the person you really are. Don’t live your life according to a book. That’s all the bible is, a book. That somone wrote many, many years ago and filled it with stories that we should live our lifes by. That’s like picking up any book in the library and living your life by its pages. Be yourself not what THEY want you to be. If Queen is gay, let her be herself, to eachs own.
    Peace

  18. Hilary Shepherd Says:

    Hi Niecey,

    What you said is one of the most articulate comments I’ve heard on this controversial subject in a very long time.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    -Hilary

  19. connie Says:

    its very sad to see a nice sweet girl like that going that way. and by no means it is very wrong to be with the same sex and it is very sad that our kids
    have to see this, they are making it seems ok and its not. who am i to judge? Least i be judge i leave everything to GOD and he will take care of it.

  20. Erica Says:

    I didnt believe it until I saw it for myself. I saw her last night at a club in Vegas with her girl. I was shocked. Im happy for her because she is happy. But aint nothing like a good “real” stiff c@@k.

  21. steve Says:

    It is against the Word of GOD for a man to lay with another man, or a woman with another woman, it is wrong for a man to lay with a woman if he is not married to her. Fornication is wrong. GOD does not condone it and if you are doing it it is time to stop I do not care how it makes you feel. Homosexuality is wrong!

  22. mariah Says:

    so what

  23. steve Says:

    I would like to say that I do not dislike homosexuals or lesbians, I disagree with the lifestyles of homosexuals and lesbians. According to the Word of God its just plain wrong. Two men cannot produce life neither can two women. God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, or Eve and Sue. Sodom and Gommorah was destroyed by God because of sodomy and other strange perverted sexual acts.

  24. steve Says:

    Niecey, contrary to popular belief no one is born gay, the Bible is right and you are wrong, I am not judging, the Word of GOD will judge you. There are several men and women at the assembly where I worship who lived “alternative” lifestyles and when they accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as there Savior they gave up that lifestyle, many are married and have families, however they will tell you that the entire time they lived that life they were not happy, they were miserable because deep down inside they knew that it was wrong.

  25. steve Says:

    Leviticus 18:22 (KJV)

    Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

  26. YungByrd Says:

    I am a stud or should i say lesbian.i been this way since i was vey young i alwyz thought about females and said they beautiful.i can actually say i was born gay,cuz i never had no feeling bout no man.so evey1 has they own oppion but GOD knows
    Live ur life!whateva u choose to do!

  27. Oladimeji Famuyiwa Says:

    I will not judge Queen Latifah on her sexual orientation but I wanted to respond to what someone said about the Bible. This person in essence to me is saying that the Bible is just a book that someone wrote many years ago and nothing more to it. I disagree with that. The Bible is the living word of God. Like every other charged up book out there the Bible also has a spirit on it. This spirit is the Holy Spirit of God. But before the Bible can make any sense to a sinner, that person must realize that they are a sinner in need of God’s salvation through Jesus Christ. The sinner must come humbly before God and repent. Until then, the Bible is a closed book. Jesus did not come to condemn any but rather that the whole world might see its sinful condition and and be set free by accepting Him as savior and Lord.

  28. DeAnn Umphress Says:

    I think you are so talented and beautiful! You are amazing to watch and i thank you for all of your hard work.Who gives a crap about anything else. it does not matter…Thanks DEDE Umphress,

  29. Raquel Says:

    It makes no reproductive, biological or spiritual sense for a man to be with a man or a woman to be with a woman.

    While I respect all people and will be kind and generous to all despite sexual orientation, I do not support this.

    None the less Queen Latifah is one of my favorite actresses, and that will never change!

  30. kewandra Says:

    Queen I am a 28 year old gay woman too, I give you props for coming out; one day I hope to become a singer and I always said that I am gone let the world know bout mine. you go girl.

  31. Allen Butler Says:

    Iam not really surprise about Queen Latifah marriage, Every since she tongue
    kiss another woman in the movie Set It Off. I knew something was wrong with
    her. God did not create Adam and Steve but he made Adam and Eve. GOD loves
    the sinnerbut God hates sin. Queen Latifah needs to repent of her wicked ways,
    and turn to Jesus to save her.

  32. Steven Turner Says:

    I think it’s wrong, nasty and immortal. If she didn’t have the fame and money, she would not be with a woman. I cannot have my kids watch any of her movies again. She is sick!

  33. alexis Says:

    well i think that there’s nothing wrong if two people decides to get married gay or straight. everyone has the right to be happy with their lives. doesn’t mean that girls loves the same sex its because of men. that’s too assuming! we are living in a new world right now not the stone age. it’s got nothing to do with men and how they act. it’s simply that sometimes people find love and it knows no gender so to speak. wish the queen and her lady the best of life:)

  34. TROY Says:

    Just because something feels good does not make it right. That is why God gave us limitations because without them where would we stop? What happens when someone wants to marry their dog …Humans are already sleeping with animals because it feels good or natural to them, but should we accept that also? Wake up people!! God has given us instructions for life in the scriptures of the Holy Bible. These instructions may not always be the most fun or feel good ways to live but they are for are benefit and well being even if we are not wise enough to understand it.The same people that condone this behavior will one day be asking how did we get so out of control when there are no bondaries for our unguarded sexual appetites.

  35. LaToya Walton Says:

  36. mitch Says:

    To all if those ppl who think the bible is the truth and only the truth on how a person should live. I feel ashamed to call u fellow brothers and sisters. It is not our choice to say how one should live their life. What I have read by commentors has made me sick and shameful to see that our gods name put in vain by my god loveing ppl. If god had felt that gay and lesbian ppl where to be punished then he would have ddone so long along. God is love, honor to oneself, and faith. We worship him for his love of his creation. What everyone how loves god have said about the queen and her lady is proff that u don’t love god and all his creatures and their life style as he does. It makes me think of all those ppl who stood up for want they believed in a false statement or claim. If they have the right to do the thing that they believe in why can’t ppl choose to live the way they want to live. It’s like saying Obama couldn’t be the president because he’s black. Or that I can’t go to college, get married, become rich, have kids, hold a job, retire, and die because I’m mixed with black and white genes. Think about all of that and see through the eyes of others before u hand down the words of god to any one. And u still need to put the word if god down any one throat than I suggest looking in the mirror and telling them to yourself.

  37. Sabbath Says:

    Being gay is as natural as breathing but Homophobes don’t want to know the truth. I’m sorry to tell you but he did and because you are blind due to ignorance you could not possibly know the will of God.
