Queen Latifah (real name Dana Owens) gay rumors have circulated for years, fueled by her choice of housemate: female trainer Jeanette Jenkins, and her evasive answers when asked about her personal life.
Now, she’s purchased a cush $1.4 million home for her trainer friend, and the speculation engine is revving again.
In 2007 the Queen told The New York Times (via The Insider): “Assume whatever you want. You do it anyway. I don’t have a problem discussing the topic of somebody being gay, but I do have a problem discussing my personal life. You don’t get that part of me. Sorry. We’re not discussing it in our meetings; we’re not discussing it at Cover Girl.”
Latifah remains tightlipped, so we’re just left with speculation. She could just be BFF with Jeannette. Either way, it’s her private life. We’re just a bunch of nosey nellies.
Here’s some photos of the pair’s new digs (via Real Estalker):
Queen Latifah’s new film, Just Write, came out in theaters yesterday.
