Queen Latifah About to Come Out of the Closet, Is Engaged to Be Married

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton has run a story, based on New York Post report about a non-disclosed actress preparing to come out, that Queen Latifah is about to confirm she's lesbian and engaged.

Rumor has it that Queen Latifah is about to confirm her sexual orientation and is now engaged to be married to her unnamed girlfriend.

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton runs a short claim, based on The New York Post report ran Monday December 3rd about a non-disclosed actress preparing to come out, that said he thinks the star is Latifah.

The New York Post story said, "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."

And so Perez comes to such assumption, wrote on his site "If it's not Queen Latifah, who lives in a small town in New Jersey, then who is it???? (Jodie Foster lives in the not-so-small city of Los Angeles.)"

Latifah has been so far avoiding to discuss her romantic life which thus prompted tabloid media to come to such speculation that she indeed is a lesbian. She responded to the lesbian report in her 1999 autobiography "Ladies First: Revelations of a Strong Woman" by saying, "It's insulting when someone asks, 'Are you gay?' A woman cannot be strong, outspoken, competent at running her own business, handle herself physically, play a very convincing role in a movie, know what she wants, and go for it, without being gay? Come on."

In early October it was reported that she gave her same-sex partner a brand new Range Rover. She's said to have the vehicle delivered to New York restaurant Philippe where she and her girlfriend were enjoying lunch.

I have ALWAYS been a fan of Queen and sometimes I wonder why it is that strong black women who do not make all of these extra efforts to fit the standards set forth by society get accused of being gay....... Idk how reporters sleep at night when they are doing things that could ruin someone's life. Bump what ya heard sweetheartsm that isn't cute. #epicfail #getalife

First of all i am a straight woman, and no matter what Queen Latifah is i will always respect her as a person and the great talent that she has. So what if she is gay isn't it her business? Further more who are we to judge anyone, shouldn't we leave the judging up to the great one above? One thing i know, and that is God do not judge anyone because he loves us all....no matter who and what we are. So all you haters who are picking on the Queen, leave her the hell alone.

No definitely in this picture, this spells out lesbianism in these pictures. You definitely not going to get two women who r straight hugging like this as just friends while one of them having there hand on the others women ass. Even Queen Latifah the way she hugs this women u can see passion coming from her while she's embracing and resting her mouth on they other lady shoulder. It looks to me, that Queen Latifah and her lesbian lover decided 2 come out of the closet after all these years of speculation from the media. Well lets face it though, Queen Latfifah she isn't getting any younger and how long can she hide her personal life involving her sexuality for when your living half your life in the public eye or spotlight and there is always that possibility that when you hide your sexuality from the public for so long they will be the media or somebody that will kiss and tell and show proof to confirm your sexuality (Part 1)

(Remember that incident years ago with George Michael based on him hiding his sexuality from the public for so long and see what happen it got exposed not in the way that George Michael expected. She probably decided to come out after all the fuss the media keep making about her personal life and she probably realise the least that it won't affect her career the slightest as she may of thought it would over the years, because if Ricky Martin have come out of the closet and he's gained love and respect for it and it hasn't really faultered his career on broadway, Queen Latifia decided to take the same step too just to see how things will take off from there.

why does her sexual orientation even matter? shes an amazing actress and an excellent role model. and keep in mind people who are pulling religion into being homosexual,the bible was writtien by MEN WAY WAY WAY back church rule ISN'T EXACTLY god's rule. God doesn't hate gay people,homophobic people hate gay people. People don't make such a big deal about this.

God's\Woman You have to understand why the Bible said these things first to understand the single scripture. True it did say not to lay with a man as you would woman. WHY was that written? Not because they were gay, but because they were going against their NATURE. Sodom wasn't destroyed because everyone was homosexual. It was destroyed because THERE WEREN'T 10 RIGHTEOUS people in the entire city.....not because they were gay! No way could an entire, thriving city be 100% gay. Learn to understand why the verses were written.

I have been standing up for the Queen about her sexuality since the whole drama and accusations after the movie Set It Off. I strongly believe that she isn't, but if she is, that wouldn't change my appreciation and love for her as a strong black woman in a caucasian dominating field. She has been a favorite of mine and I will pray for her in her decisions just like we all should do instead of judging!

I THINK THE QUEEN IS A REAL PERSON, DIRECT AND UP FRONT. I ENJOY HER ACTING AND HER POSITIVENESS, SHE'S REAL. "LIVE AND LET LIVE PEOPLE" OH, BUY THE WAY, I AM NOT A GAY PERSON

I think latifah is a very successfull and intelligient woman. I personally like her. However, I do think it is unfair for her to not reveal her true sexuality. she is in the public and considered a role model. I may not want my child watching her or listening to her music if I thought she was gay. I have a right to know who my heroes and role models are so I can make informed choices for my children. If you are truly at peace with something why does it need to be a secret. My morality and religion forbids this type of behavior and I do not say that in a judgmental way-it just what I believe and I should not have to be mislead by someone who is misrepresenting themselves. Be honest and be real one way or the other.

I am so sick of seeing such negativity being aimed at those who aren't afraid to be who they are. Gay or not the Queen is just that, a Queen. She is so successful and beautiful. Such an inspiration to all women who struggle with insecurity on all levels. I am a lesbian and am very proud of it, and it is people like Queen Latifah who make me proud to be myself. All those who talk crap about things they know nothing about should find a pass time and stop wasting others time who have a life.

I like Queen Latifah, but God created her a woman, and it is a sin for a woman to lay with another woman, as well as a man to lay with another man. This society is so perverted and condones everything. God is the only one that can judge. If you read Roman's the chapter 1, it will tell you what he thinks about the gay life style and sin period! I pray she would find Jesus and be healed and live according to his purpose!!

Who really cares. I mean like half of the very successful people in show biz and singing are gay. Media needs to shut up.

Who cares if Queen Latifah is gay it is her personal life so the people who are talking about her and saying she is gay just shut up and leave Queen Latifah alone. Do something with your life and stop making celebrities get really angry at you guys because you have nothing to do with your life.P.S. STOP BEING RETARDED REPORTERS AND FIND SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT, IM NOT SAYING QUEEN LATIFAH IS NOT IMPORTANT SHE IS IMPORTANT BUT THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS THAN SAYING QUEEN LATIFAH IS GAY WHO CARES. ELLEN DEGENEREES AND ROSSIE ODANLD ARE GAY AND THEY ARE FAMOUS JUST A LITTLE ADVISE LEAVE QUEEN LATIFAH AND HER PERSONAL LIFE ALONE. OR YOU CAN GET BEATEN THE CRAP OUT OF YOU BY QUEEN LATIFAH SHE DOESN'T LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE START RUMORS ABOUT HER SO I BETTER WATCH OUT. AND SHE IS GETTING FED UP WITH PEOPLE ASKING IF SHE IS GAY OR HAVING A WEDDING OR NOT SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH OH AND WATCH OUT BECAUSE SHE IS NOT SCARED OF GETTING IN A FIGHT WITH SOMEONE. JUST REMEMBER SHE USED TO LIVE IN NYC AND SHE HAS SEEN A LOT OF CRIMES IN HER NEIGHBORHOOD SO SHE HAD TO DEFEND HERSELF SO SHE DIDN'T GET HURT BUT I SEE YOU GUYS ARE TRYING TO HURT HER SO WATCH OUT SHE COULD STRIKE AT ANYTIME.
