Media mogul Queen Latifah is apparently back on the open market.
RadarOnline.com reports exclusively that Latifah, 45, and Eboni Nichols secretly broke up more than three months ago.
“Queen and Eboni split in late 2015,” a source close to the former couple told Radar.
Radar Online — While the details of their secret split remain unclear, Latifah and her busty ex-girlfriend, who was once in the Los Angeles Laker Girls dance troupe, have not been seen together since Oct. 23, when they were photographed on vacation in Brazil.Latifah, whose real name is Dana Elaine Owens, is reportedly dating actress Paula Patton, 40, the ex-wife of singer Robin Thicke.
Latifah and Nichols were together for more than a year on the heels of Latifah’s 8-year-relationship with previous girlfriend, fitness instructor Jeannette Jenkins.
On Monday, the couple attended the Hollywood premiere of the Lionsgate film Perfect Match, starring Terrence J and Cassie Ventura.
It’s easy to see why Patton fled to the other side. After being with only one man her entire life — only to have him cheat on her — it must be hard for Patton to put her trust in men.
In an effort to silence the lesbian rumors, Patton gave an interview to E! Online, in which she claims she’s “looking for a man.”
Patton, who is a single mom to son Julian Fuego Thicke, 5, told E! she’s “very open” to dating a man who possesses the following qualities: “Kindness, compassion and intelligence.”
Commenting on the myth of perfect matches in relationships, Patton said:
“I think there is probably a perfect match for different times in your life… I think you have to define perfect. “Nothing in life is perfect like that. People argue. People have fights. But’s how you get through it, get to the other side, compromise and then you’re like, ‘I think I met my perfect match. They’ve helped me grow…and I love them in spite of it all.”
