Actress Paula Patton (R) and producer Queen Latifah attend the premiere of Lionsgate’s ‘The Perfect Match’ at ArcLight Hollywood on March 7, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

*Paula Patton’s people had to come out and deny a report from gossip site Media TakeOut that she is romantically involved with Queen Latifah, the executive producer of her new film “The Perfect Match.”

The rumor-busting site Gossip Cop reported Thursday: “A rep for Patton confirms to us the claim is a fabrication.”

The headline in MediaTakeOut on Tuesday read, “There’s a New LESBIAN POWER COUPLE In Hollywood… You’ll Never Guess Which ACTRESS… Is Dating QUEEN LATIFAH!!!”

The story went on to say, “Multiple sources CONFIRMED to us that Latifah is now dating actress Paula Patton – Robin Thicke’s ex-wife. We’re not sure HOW SERIOUS IT IS… but it’s going down.”

Gossip Cop countered:

After both Patton and Latifah became trending topics on Thursday morning as people tweeted about the rumor, Gossip Cop investigated. Now a rep for Patton exclusively tells us, “MediaTakeOut is as reliable as a dead battery. It’s not true. They are friends who produced a movie together and have been doing press appearances to support it.”
