Paula Patton and Queen Latifah are NOT “dating,” despite a 100 percent wrong report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story. A rep for Patton confirms to us the claim is a fabrication.

On Tuesday, MediaTakeOut blared, “There’s a New LESBIAN POWER COUPLE In Hollywood… You’ll Never Guess Which ACTRESS… Is Dating QUEEN LATIFAH!!!” In the accompanying post, the site claimed, “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.”

In actuality, the only thing going down is MTO and its “sources.” 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.”

Their film, The Perfect Match, hits theaters on Friday. Latifah and Patton are pictured above at the flick’s Hollywood premiere on Monday. Gossip Cop suspects MediaTakeOut saw the photos, and chose to build a story around it, albeit an inaccurate one. After all, there’s a reason why the webloid is nicknamed “MediaFakeOut.”
