*UPDATE: Regina King took to Twitter on Friday to deny reports of a split from longtime boyfriend, Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
She stated, “Hey everybody PLEASE don’t believe
everything you read. Me & @MalcolmJamalWar are good. Life
happens. Forward motion. Godspeed.”
Unfortunately, another Hollywood couple bites the dust. Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Regina King have reportedly called it quits after more than two years of dating.
Us Weekly reports:
“After over two years of dating, Malcolm-Jamal Warner has split with girlfriend Regina King, a source confirms to Us Weekly — and it wasn’t the most amicable of partings. ‘He said he wasn’t feeling it anymore,’ the source adds, explaining that Warner, 42, asked King and her young son (with ex-husband Ian Alexander Sr.) to move out of the house they shared. ‘She’s still very brokenhearted,’ says the insider of the Southland actress, 42.”
As child stars, Warner and King have been friends since the 1980s and began quietly dating following her marriage to ex-husband Ian Alexander Sr.

In happier times, King told Parade, “I believe the universe has a plan, and we probably wouldn’t have been ready years ago. We both had to do whatever we had to do to be ready for each other now.”
