When the story broke about Kobe Bryan’ts divorce, a number of rumors started that actress Sanaa Lathan was involved with him prior to his separation. In a split moment, Sanaa tweeted her denial of the rumors adding that Kobe would never date her because she was black.
Now, she apologizing. In an interview with Ebony magazine she stated:
“I probably shouldn’t have said that because I don’t discriminate when it comes to dating. I have dated all races and I believe you should be free to do whatever you want. But I was so annoyed because I was having such a great time at the (Jay-Z/Kanye West) concert and Kobe happen to be standing next to me, and then all of a sudden I was tied to his break-up. That’s absurd, and I tweeted that in the moment, and I regret it. But to each its own. It’s just funny that if it’s written people believe it, and even though I have said I have nothing to do with him, people are still saying when the baby is due?”
This isnt’ the first time Sanaa has been rumored to be “hanging” with a high-profile celebrity. There were also rumors of her having an affair with Denzel Washington when they were shooting the moving Out of Time. She denied those rumors too.
The sad reality is that when you’re beautiful and successful people clamor to see a little dirt, and what isn’t there people will create. Afterall, Hollywood is the land of make-believe.
Regarding her Kobe statement, she might be right.
But that’s another blog.
