Recently, everybody has been buzzing about Sanaa Lathan and not just because her latest film, The Perfect Guy, opened at number 1 this past weekend. Over the past few days, we’ve learned more about Lathan than we have her entire career.
For one, she surprised the Internet on Saturday with the release of a song called “Emotional” which features Dej Loaf. Judging by social media’s reaction, it’s best Lathan stick to acting.
And another bombshell was that Lathan was dating rapper French Montana. Yes, Lathan, a Yale-educated actor who has co-starred alongside some of the hottest men in Hollywood and could have her pick of the male population was dating French, a rapper with a few club hits and known to most as Khloe Kardashian’s ex.
Men began to feel like they possibly had a chance with Lathan if she were in fact, dating the Bronx rapper. And women became scared because if an accomplished, smart and pretty woman like Lathan was really dating French, then it might be slim pickings for the rest of us.
For all we know, French could be a nice and charming guy, and according to Twitter it is #ShootYourShot season, so maybe the universe was working in his favor on this one. But that still doesn’t take away the fact no one in a million years would have put Lathan and French together.
As with all things, opinions and, of course, jokes flew on Twitter about the recent choices Lathan has been making.
Sanaa could pull most men. She chose French Montana?? Wonders shall never cease. I don’t understand.
