Actress Queen Latifah takes to Instagram with a stunning no-makeup selfie and shows support to those on the frontlines of the nationwide protests.
"I'm sending love to everyone on the front lines of this fight for equality. And thank you to the family of George Floyd for allowing us to mourn as well as celebrate with you yesterday!"
In the picture, the actress was wearing a clean white shirt with long sleeves. Her brown locks adorned with a few strands of gray hair were pulled back into a low bun to show off her bare face. She accessorized with gold hoops and held up her clenched fist to show the symbol of solidarity.
Latifah continued her message by saying that all those who were protesting for equality needed to continue because they could not take their collective foot off the gas. Her fans and followers took to the comment section to commend her for showing her support; others gushed over her beauty.
A user praised her for how youthful she looked. Another comment noted how amazing her skin looked, and another requested that she shared her skincare regimen.
Queen Latifah has done a perfect job of keeping her personal life away from the public.
Latifah has been in a happy relationship with her longtime girlfriend, Eboni Nichols, for almost ten years. In 2018, rumors began to fly across the internet, claiming that she and Nichols were expecting a child.
Back in 2017, she opened up about their relationship and the possibility of her becoming a mother, admitting that she was finally ready to start a family.
In November 2019, the many eyes curious about her private life which she keeps away from the spotlight, started to prod again. It was rumored that she and Nichols had welcomed a baby girl together.
Nichols and Latifah met on the set of "Dancing With the Stars" in 2013. Nichols is a professional choreographer and former member of the dance team for the Los Angeles Lakers.
With the numerous rumors and speculations that kept going around concerning her relationship with Nichols and the existence of a child between them, neither of them confirmed or denied any of the rumors.
Early this year, yet another source claimed that the actress and her partner had a child, but this time, it was not a girl but instead, a boy named Rebel. The couple neither confirmed nor denied the news.
Despite the vast success and fame that Queen Latifah has attained, she has done a perfect job of keeping her personal life away from the public's probing eyes while being vocal on things that matter to her.
