Latifah (real name Dana Owens) was snapped with friend and rumored long-time partner, Jeanette Jenkins, embracing on the yacht's deck. Unconfirmed rumors regarding Queen Latifah's sexuality have followed the rapper-turned-actress for years, and some are speculating the timing might have influenced the extremely private celebrity to drop her guard just a bit. Both Latifah and Jenkins attended close friend Alicia Keys' wedding and during the same week, Proposition 8, which bans same sex marriage in the State of California, was deemed unconstitutional.
The speculation is nothing new to Queen Latifah, but maybe all of the love in the air has her ready to confirm the rumors. She owes the prying eye of the public nothing, but if she does come out, we can't think of anyone better to be an ambassador for gay marriage in California. For the time being, it looks like we'll be waiting a bit longer for both.
