A few years ago, we were shocked by rumors that Queen Latifah had plans of getting married to her ‘live in’ trainer, Jeanette Jenkins. Prior to the rumor, she was spotted on board a yacht with her arms around her lady; to which, the Queen simply brushed off as a hug between friends.
When Glamour asked what her views are on the subject of gay marriage, the Hip-Hop singer replied:
“I don’t think that it should be called marriage. But the idea of it is the same, and you should have the same quality of rights that a married person has. People think of marriage as something that is between a man and a woman, because it was created by God. Well, let God handle the judgment, too. You stay out of it,”
After making such statements, Dallas Voice further asked:
‘Did you know that when states prohibit gays to marry, it can threaten same-sex couples being protected by domestic violence laws?’
Unfortunately, the wedding didn’t happen.
In 2010, Queen Latifah has been spotted with a mystery girl when she was vacationing in Europe.
As for her previous relationship with Jenkins, there was a report earlier this year that she [Jenkins] was willing to take Queen back, providing she kicks away her nasty habits. This certainly proved that the gay wedding rumor might have been true.
However, the 41 year old singer/actress still hopes to be a mother someday.
‘I’m definitely going to adopt – or have – a child. I’ve wanted to adopt since I was 17 or 18 years old.’
