The 41-year-old entertainer and her galpal of eight years are "fighting and fussing and talking about calling it quits," a close friend told The Enquirer. "Queen Latifah ad Jeanette have broken up and gotten back together many times over the past few years, but this time it definitely seems like the end." As The Enquirer reported earlier this year, the two planned to start a family but had not decided whether one of them would carry the child or if they would opt for surrogacy or adoption. "But recently they've had some huge blowups over Latifah's poor eating and health habits," said the friend. "Jeanette, who's a personal trainer, wants her partner to be a fit and healthy parent -- but Latifah can't be bothered. She can't seem to curb her junk-food binges, drinking and cigar-smoking habits."The report goes on to say Latifah has turned to BFF Jillian Michaels -- who, until recently, was a trainer on "The Biggest Loser" -- to help save her relationship. However, the Golden Globe-winning actress is resistant to change and the friend who sold the story to the tabloid says "things are so bad between them [Latifah and Jeanette] right now, I wouldn't be surprised if they end up going their separate ways very soon." In 2009, the couple bought a home in Los Angeles together.
