Last month, rumors of lesbianism and an affair with Queen Latifah (http://blackvoices.aol.com/black_sports/columnists/playerslife?id=20051115004209990001) flooded the airwaves as the reason behind Laila Ali's divorce from her husband Johnny "Yahya" McClain. Ali denied the rumors, saying she didn't even know Latifah.Last week, Laila's big sister, Maryum "May May" Ali, came to her younger sister's aid. "My sister is not gay," May May told the EUR. "She got a divorce from her husband. The rumors could have started from his camp, who knows? It just started coming out that she's dating Queen Latifah. Let me tell you something about Laila, ever since I have known her - and I've known her since she was a baby but I got really close with her when she was about 12 - she's always had a boyfriend. And Laila has the kind of personality that if she were a lesbian, she would be completely out in the open with it. She wouldn't hide it."
