The pair has been in France since last weekend when they attended Alicia and Swizz’s wedding.
Maybe one day Latifah will come out and we can all say, "Good for her," and go on with our lives, very much in the way she has been.
2007 - Present Queen Latifah has been rumored to be dating her personal trainer Jeanette Jenkins since 2007, but she never commented on the subject.
A force to be reckoned with in her own right—she’s a fitness guru who was the first female winner of and is the founder and president of the Hollywood Trainer fitness company—Jenkins has trained the likes of Terrell Owens, Taryn Manning, and Amy Weber in addition to the Queen.
Judging by her athleticism and the way she’s palming Queen Latifah’s booty in the pictures, I’m going to say she wears the pants in the relationship.
Jeanette (right) with client Michelle Williams Let’s clear something up right away: The rumors about Jenkins and Latifah dating are not true, according to Jenkins, who tells us she’s straight.“I have gay friends, but I’m not gay,” Jenkins said.
She also indicated the gossip about her online and in magazines is nothing but fiction, and she’s less bothered by paparazzi than the lack of fact-checking by journalists.“The first blog that writes a story gets picked up by everybody else as what really happened,” Jenkins said.
“No one ever tries to call the person and get an interview.”When I asked her if she was open to speaking about her personal life to someone who did want an interview, she said no.
“Doesn’t that feel strange, telling someone you don’t know about your private life? “My private life is for me and the people that know me.”Jenkins says her private life is very separate from her career as a health and fitness expert.
(She did, though, on the first episode of her show, talk about how Willow Smith's "Summer Fling" reminded Latifah of a summer fling she had when she was 12 with a boy, which certainly counts as discussing her personal life.) In advance of the Grammys' equal marriage spectacular, many assumed that Latifah would take the opportunity to come out. Is there anyone who doesn't know that she's gay, who can't read between the lines that she regularly sets out?
