Laila Ali and her husband/manager’s divorce is final. The two have been separated since January and their divorce became final November 1st. She briefly mentioned it on the red carpet of BET’s 25 Anniversary show last night. A close friend of the boxing champ tells Atlanta Gossip (AG), that Laila  has finally come to grips with her true sexuality and is happy with her new found freedom and is dating Grammy nominated actress, rapper, singer, Queen Latifah.

Anyone, anyone?

    Is anyone surprised? If it walks like a duck and talks like a dug… And these two bitches have been quacking from the get go…

  2. Ocelot

    If it’s true then good for them!!!!!!!!

  3. nansie

    They make a really good looking couple.

  4. Erica

    Yup, I agree that would be cool. Cynthia Nixon could learn a thing or two from this supposed couple….although I’m not sure what, lol.

  5. caro

    umm she could learn how to date a decent looking chick
    if you’re gonna go lesbo, might as well make it HOT

  6. melikkab

    Good for them. I all about people being themselves!

  7. sagethewise

    Hmmm…makes so much sense, I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner…

    Has anyone heard the rumor about Missy Elliot and Evo from top Model?

  8. Francis Skipper

    That’s one couple that you DO NOT want to fuck with. An ass whippin’ beat down on one side or two slugs from a Glock from the other. Other than that, I think they make cute couple.

    The Queen; that’s a given. No big surprise there. But I wouldn’t have guess Laila because she always seemed so happy with her (ex) husband. Of course, so was Sheryl Swoopes with her ex. They’d make a cute couple though I wouldn’t want to get into a lover’s quarrel with a chick that could pop my eyeball out of its socket. Good for them if its true; I love the Queen. And yeah, I’ve heard about Missy and Eva; not just that they’re a couple but that Missy basically dominates her like a little puppy and that she broke up with Tweet for Eva. She even got Eva on the Violator Records label…and the bitch doesn’t sing!!!!! HELLO??!?!?!?!?

    >sagethewise Eva Pigford is engaged to the actor Henry Simmons.

    When Swoops and Ellen can to terms with the fact that they really want to be with women, they told everyone, they did not let a close friend do. So until we here from one of these ladies we really can’t believe it.

  12. I don’t like it. but if it is true than that is there choise.

  13. Van

    I wish Queen Latifah comes out of the closet. I wonder how her mother feels about this whole ordeal. I guess everything is everything these days.

  14. virgo78

    If it’s true, good for them. Laila is hot.
    I’d do her in a heartbeat. I’ve heard about
    Missy and Eva. That’s not hot.:(

  15. I’m sorry for my first react, But why Queen Latifah.I,m a fan of the Queen and i love her. But if Queen Latifa is really in love whit the other women, Than I wish her all the healt and luck in the world

  16. Ingrid

    I read that laila Ali is not dating Queen Latifah, I,m thanking God for that. So my Queen Latifah go and find for yourzelf a partner, the world is full off them. I will stand behind you whith all my heart and love.

    Y’ALL MUH FUCKAS NEED TO GET A FUCKING LIFE DANA OWENS IS NOT GAY. SHE LIKES MEN. LAILA ALI ISN’T GAY EITHER COME ON SHE’S BEEN MARRIED TO A MAN FOR FIVE YEARS UNTIL NOW. WHY Y’ALL HATIN? THIS BULL SHYT NEED TO STOP FASHO.

    First of all, although some of us may suspect Dana of being a lesbian, she has never come out! And it is her perragotive if she chooses not to that is none of our business. As far as Laila is concerned that is unfair to her and her father who is a devout follower of Islam and a very sick man. People really need to think before they start with the rumors. Need to realize although these folks are in the spotlight, think of what these lies can do their careers as well as their families.

    I think it’s cool. With the rise of powerful and economically sound black women today. We are now opening our eyes to the many options we make and take throughout our lives. Companionship and relationship are not one in the same, i.e.; to-mate-to – to-ma-to Togetherness and partnership are key in the world today within relationships. There are some of us brothers who have what we have through hard work and we enjoy lifes simple pleasures. But we know that it’s a lifetime committment. Unfortunately on a major down turn for black men is the phrase; “The King of the Castle”. Here is Queen and a Warrior, side-by-side in a relationship or partnership in their Femmdom. Call me a proletariat and/or bourgeois within this newly founded Kingdom and I will bow and stand at full attention to my Queen Ali partnership. Basically, “Benjamins and Pendulums Baby”, i.e.; “Money and Time”.

    i have been a fan of Queens every since”self destruction”, and i think she is a great rapper. When she went to hollywood and played the lesbian role on Set it Off i thought, “wow she played that tole pretty damn well” it let me down a little cause i respect her as a woman. All i say is if thats the route she wants to go thats her business and noone else.She will have to answer to God on judgement day,not man. I still have much luv for Queen in whatever she do,whomever she dates. I am and allways will be Queens biggest number one fan, so Queen if u r reading this big ups to u from your number one fan. koolbreeze

    Hey i think that if oueen latifah is gay then that is her (business) and people should just stay in their own life style and don’t worry about everybody else! but that is just my opinion.

  24. Sabiu Muhammed

    dear laila ali.
    how are?
    hope you are fine i just want to say hi to you well i have oready know that you dont know me but what i want you know is that every where in this world you have people who care about you
    and i am one of them
    after that my name is Sabiu Muhammed

    For people who think that Dana Owens being gay is just a rumor, this is a quote directly from her on the subject. “Maybe I am and maybe I’m not.” If she’s not gay, why not just come out and say squash the rumors I’m not gay? Come on, you don’t have to be Columbo to figure this one out. I’ve been a fan of Latifah since the late eighties and I’ve never seen her show up at an event with a man on her arm. Never. She used to date this R&B singer, Monifah. Old-school rapper-turned-actor Heavy D’s protege. Queen Latifah is at least bi. And she hasn’t come out because the hip-hop African-American community isn’t as accepting of homosexuality. She may be afraid that coming out will cost her a chunk of her career. Take your head out of the sand people. Her sexual orientation or preference doesn’t take away from her talent or accomplishments but the handwriting is on the wall. I don’t know about Lalia Ali, but the Queen had or has a female partner somewhere, sometime. Her autobiography cites relationships with men and obscure references to female friends and one of them is Monifah.

    MY NAME IS KAREN AND I DON’T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THAT STUFF. I HAVE A QUESTION FOR ANYONE WHO MAY KNOW. QUEEN LATIFAH FATHER NAME IS THE SAME NAME OF A FRIEND OF MINE BROTHER WHOM SHE HAS NOT SEEN SINCE SHE WAS 13YRS OLD. I COULD GIVE ANYONE WHO KNOWS MR. OWENS ALL THE INFORMATION HE NEED TO HELP THIS LADY FIND HIM.

    look personally if they gay that’s they business. i maen why ya’ll trippin over that stuff. this is america you got a right to do and feel andlive how you want to. BUT I KNOW FOR A FACT IF IT WAS ME YA’LL WAS CALLIN AND ASSUMING GAY I’D GIVE YOU SOMETHIN TO LOOK AT JUST FOR BEING ALL UP IN MY GRILL. But i can’t see how you could be gay with all these fine niggas in the world dang! but like i said it’s their business not yours or mine so why not leave them the hell alone!?

    I like queen latifah I don’t nothin really no anything abouit Laila Ali but if they do go out good 4 them because I don’t think it’s anyones business if they do go out.But I didn’t hear about Tweet and Missy or Eva and Missy but more power 2 them 2.

  29. janice

    well i do not think that they are gay because
    many woman has a hardness about them like me i can rock with the hardness of them and it don’t make me gay because i am married and have been for 10 years we as woman need to stop spreading rumors about positive black woman we have more to worry about and if they are gay more power to them because i love them both and i idolize both of them i wanted to be a boxer and a rapper at one pont in my life so just think on this before you spread a rumor
