Queen Latifah and personal trainer buy property together
BUYER: Dana Owens and Jeanette Jenkins
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
SIZE: 2,026 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
According to property records, a remodeled Mediterranean home (formerly owned by actor Henry Simmons) was snatched up by none other that Dana Owens–otherwise known as Queen Latifah–and her, er, trainer Jeanette Jenkins who paid $1,340,000 for the house in mid-December of 2009.
Latifah has a new movie opening today called "Just Wright." She plays a physical therapist looking for (heterosexual) love, and apparently finds it it with an injured baskeball star, played by hip-hop artist Common. A 2007 report says Common made a career decision to quit using anti-gay lyrics by fan request, and also the n-word out of respect for Oprah. The property is just one of several that Latifah owns, including three in New Jersey and one in Joppa, MD.
