Her stage name was selected by Dana Elaine while reading a book of Islamic names at the age of eight, and can be translated as “very kind” or “delicate”.

So just how rich is Queen Latifah, as of mid-2017? Authoritative sources have estimated that she has a net worth of over $70 million, accumulated through her several talents since appearing on stage in 1988. Notable and interesting assets include a $1.3 million home in Los Angeles, and a silver Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe car which was unveiled in 2007, the most expensive car in the Rolls-Royce line at that time with a price tag of $443,000.

Latifah was raised a Baptist but educated at a catholic school in Newark. She first appeared on stage in 1988 with other girls in a hip-hop band called “Ladies Fresh”. She was noticed by DJ King Gemini, who later recorded her first rap demo “Princess of the Posse”, found by producer Dante Ross who signed the young musician to the Tommy Boy Music label. Queen Latifah released her first song “Wrath of Madness”, and after that first small success, Latifah’s popularity started to rise, together with her net worth. To the present day, she has released seven studio albums, the last of which called “Persona” surprisingly has become almost as popular as her previous creations, so with reference to this information it can be said that Queen Latifah continues being as popular as she has always been. The last album didn’t have such a big influence on Queen Latifah’s net worth as did “Trav’lin Light” in 2007, but reached a higher position in the Top R&B and Hip-Hop albums charts.

Queen Latifah also is known for playing voice roles in such a popular movie as “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs”, and playing the main character Charlene Morton in the movie “Bringing Down the House”. To her notable appearances we can mention are Georgia Byrd in “Last Holiday”, Penny Escher in “Stranger than Fiction”, Isabelle ‘Belle’ Williams in “Taxi”, her character Motormouth Maybelle in the movie “Hairspray”, and Thelma in “The Bone Collector” in 1999.

Besides her career as an actress and musician, Queen Latifah is also a spokesperson for Curvation ladies underwear, Pizza Hut, Jenny Craig, and CoverGirl cosmetics, of which she is the owner together with the perfume line “Queen”.

In her personal life, Queen Latifah has never married, but is known to have been in relationships with Kendu Isaacs during the 1990s, Jeanette Jenkins from 2002 to 2011, and Ebony Nicholas from 2011. She currently lives in California.
