Understanding Queen Latifah’s Love Life: Does She Have A Husband, Girlfriend or Wife?

Not many icons and legends in the American entertainment industry can confidently say they have gone decades with details about their private life mostly out of the press. Yet, this is something Queen Latifah has achieved with her love life since she began her career in 1989 and rose to prominence in 2002 when she starred in the musical film, Chicago.

Since then, with every new milestone she hits, the interest in her love life grows as fans and observers thirst to learn about the personal life of the American icon. With a bit of research, we took a look at Queen Latifah’s love life, including details about her past and current partner. Check it out below.

What is Queen Latifah’s Sexuality?

Considering Queen Latifah famously refuses to discuss details about her love life with the press, even going as far as never officially confirming if she is gay, it is difficult to be 100% certain about the music legend’s sexual orientation or relationship status.

However, even though she doesn’t share details of her personal life, her relationship history colorfully includes male and female personalities. While that would suggest Queen Latifah is bisexual, the proportion of women being greater in her history has led many to believe she is a lesbian rather than bisexual. She has not graced any of the speculations with a confirmation.

Who is She Dating Now?

Things have been peacefully serene in Queen Latifa’s love life, however, all evidence points to the fact that the Newark, New Jersey-born rapper/actress is in a relationship with notable Hollywood choreographer, Eboni Nichols. The two reportedly began dating in 2013, and have been in an on-again, off-again relationship ever since. As one might expect, Queen Latifah has never publicly acknowledged their relationship even though they have been spotted on multiple occasions in romantic moments holding hands on a nice walk and kissing.

Their relationship has been a subject of debate to observers and fans of the musician/actress ever since news of the many acts PDAs filtered to the public. However, in 2018, things took a different turn when news hit the public that Eboni Nichols was pregnant. Many suggested and believed that the pregnancy was a definitive confirmation of the status of Queen Latifah’s love life.

Those suggestions turned out to be right as Queen Latifah and Eboni Nichols reportedly welcomed their child in 2019. As expected, the couple has kept details of their family away from the media, but sources close to them have mentioned Queen Latifah’s joy at finally starting a family.

Their new family also raised questions about the personality of Eboni Nichols. She is a Hollywood choreographer who works across both film and television. According to her IMDb page, she started dancing at the age of eight, at the Bre Dance Studio. Her journey in the world of dancing continued well into adulthood with a bachelor’s degree from Chapman University in California. After graduation, she transformed her talent and passion for dance into a profession which she pursued with zest.

She has worked on music videos with music icons like Beyonce, Will Smith, and Aaliyah, and others while also working in film and television with more than 30 credits to her name, including Jane the Virgin and Jack and Jill.

Queen Latifah’s Past Relationships

In the over three decades since Queen Latifah has been in the industry, her love life has featured a couple of well-known personalities. While her relationship with Eboni Nichols remains the current and most significant relationship she has been in, she has been involved with others like Jeanette Jenkins and Kendu Isaacs

Jeanette Jenkins

Before Queen Latifah’s love life found its long-term partner in the person of Eboni Nichols, the rapper/actress was reportedly in a relationship with the fitness trainer, Jeanette Jenkins. According to the public information about the couple, they were together for eight years and 5 months from 2002 and 2011.

Both of them were spotted together on multiple occasions until they were no longer an item. The reason for their breakup is still unknown, but if the words of Queen Latifah herself is anything to go by, she was still in her ‘party years and wasn’t ready for a family.

Kendu Isaacs

Queen Latifah’s love life has always been a subject of interest, not just because she is an American icon, but because of the diversity in her relationship history. One of those diversities involves Kendu Isaacs, who by being a man, is the opposite of Queen Latifah’s rumored sexual orientation as a gay woman. The two were together between February 1992 and 2001. Kendu Isaacs is an American music producer who is more known for his marriage to another American music legend, Mary J. Blige.

Outside of Queen Latifah’s past relationships with Kendu Isaacs and Jeanette Jenkins, she is also rumored to have been involved with Debbie Allen, an American entertainment icon known for her work as an actress, dancer, producer, and choreographer. Details of their rumored affair remain out of reach.
