Actress, singer and rapper Queen Latifah was spotted in a New York lesbian bar last week.

The star, who has never confirmed rumours about her sexuality, reportedly spent several hours relaxing at Country Club’s weekly Wednesday night party, Eden, on West 14th Street.

A source told the New York Post: “She chilled for several hours, ordering bottle service for her friends and chatting up promoter Maggie Collier.”

In December 2007, the rumour mill went into overdrive with gossip that Queen Latifah was about to come out of the closet and announce her engagement to her personal trainer Jeanette Jenkins.

However, the actress subsquently denied the stories, saying it was just a part of being a celebrity.
