Rumors have been swirling about two female celebrity co-workers who can’t keep their hands off each other on the set. Well, Halle Berry and Lena Waithe just let the cat out of the bag.
Halle, who works alongside Lena on the set of BET’s Boomerang, planted a long wet kiss on Lena’s lips while the screenwriter hosted Wednesday’s taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Rumor has it that Halle – who is reportedly “ghey for play” – and Lena are “more than friends” on the set.
This must be news to actor Keanu Reeves who is supposedly dating the 52-year-old Oscar winner and brought her into his wildly popular John Wick action hero franchise.
Halle took to her Instagram stories immediately after the taping to explain what happened.
“When my friend Lena Waithe hosts Jimmy Kimmel Live, s**t happens,” she wrote.
Friends say Lena’s fiancee Alana Mayo is “crushed” by Lena’s betrayal, but the writing was on the wall.
Lena usually smiles in photos with Alana on red carpets and at events, but in recent months Lena, 35, has stopped smiling in photos. Now friends say the spark is gone from their relationship.
Not only that, but Lena and Alana were “engaged” for a really long time — many years. In fact, they have been “engaged” for a lot longer than some couples have been married.
It remains to be seen whether Halle is just using Lena for PC points or whether she really cares for the young butch lesbian. But, for now, friends say Lena believes it’s real Love. She is reportedly discussing her options with her friends to let Alana down with as little drama as possible.
Alana, 34, was Vice President of Production at Paramount and Vice President and Head of Originals at Vimeo before she was hired by Michael B. Jordan as the Head of Production for his Outlier Society.
So Alana is not financially dependent on Lena.
