Meet world-famous dancer and choreographer Eboni Nichols, the alleged girlfriend of actress/singer/rapper/comedian/ TV host Queen Latifah!
Queen Latifah 44, got a little summer lovin’ during a break at a Sardinian resort from her rumored girlfriend of four years, Eboni Nichols — although Queen has never addressed her sexuality or publicly come out.
The two are reportedly in the throes of a full-blown relationship, and were snapped kissing on the lips while lounging poolside at the Hotel Cala di Volpe in Porto Cervo, Sardinia — which is bound to raise more questions about the talk show host’s private love life.
About two years ago, in 2012 the couple were also spotted on the beach enjoying the sand and surf in Barbados.
While the Queen keeps us guessing, here is what we know about her much younger gal pal Eboni Nichols.
36-year-old Eboni Nichols attended Chapman University. She has worked at Answers4dancers, Spotlight Events Inc, The Charity Dreamgirls, Block Financial Corp, British Grammy. She is originally from Eagle, Idaho but has lived most of her life in California having resided in Los Angeles, Sherman Oaks, Orange County, Moreno Valley and Beverly Hills.
Her profile with talent agency Bloc reads:
While pursuing her B.F.A in Theatre and Dance from Chapman University in Orange County, Eboni Nichols likely had no idea just how far her passion for dance and talent for choreography would take her. From the Staples Center as a member of the world renowned Los Angeles Lakers Girls, to stages in South Africa performing for the late Nelson Mandela, to arenas full of fans awaiting performances from superstars like Mary J. Blige and Jamie Foxx.
Eboni has had the opportunity to tour the world working with some of today’s most talented singers and actors. She has worked with hot talents, including Demi Lovato, Capital Cities, and Sara Bareilles. Eboni’s choreography has appeared on both big and small screens in feature films such as Blades of Glory and Dreamgirls, and television shows including Cougartown, The Queen Latifah Show, and CW show Jane the Virgin.
Eboni’s alleged girlfriend was previously in a long relationship. Latifah and her previous girlfriend, fitness instructor Jeannette Jenkins (pictured below), ended their eight-year relationship and rumors said it was because of Eboni. They first began hanging out back in 2009 when Eboni put together a routine for Latifah’s guest appearance on “Dancing with the Stars.”
As a choreographer Eboni’s work can be seen in various commercial campaigns airing nationally, such as for Faith Hill’s Sunday Night Football spots, and for products such as Svedka Vodka, Sensa, and Covergirl cosmetics.
In addition to television commercials for McDonald’s, Washington Mutual and Butterfinger, Eboni’s work can be seen in various films such as Sony Pictures’Jack and Jill starring Adam Sandler, and in the Dreamworks’ comical figure skating homage, Blades of Glory. Eboni also has choreographed numerous music videos and live performances for artists such as Solange, and super producer The Dream. Eboni has worked extensively with British Grammy- winning sensation Estelle, both creative directing her U.S. tour and choreographing her video for the Top 100 single, “Freak.”
