Sanaa Lathan Is Getting It In With An UNMARRIED SEPARATED Steve Rifkind

Rumors have been swirling for a couple months now that Sanaa Lathan's new man is SRC Records head and music mogul Steve Rifkind.  After they popped up on each other's arms at Essence Atkins' wedding this past weekend, it was clear things are indeed what they seem and the two are one of the industry's newest--and more surprising--couples. Folks were saying that Sanaa had already moved in with him and she was a HOMEWRECKER because he's still married.  But sources confirmed today that Steve got a divorce separated almost 3 years ago from his wife who he shares 2 kids with:

So no homewrecking there.  Or is there?  Either way, I'm sure some gold digging accusations will get thrown around soon....

Sanaa needs to be careful

Sanaa needs to be careful with this one. I hope she is not settling by moving in with this man. He is still married and not divorced. Three years is a long time. Looks like he should have gotten a divorce by now.

I also meant that in a good

I also meant that in a good way. If he has been seperated for the past 3 years from his wife and living by himself I don't see anything wrong with Sanaa having a relationship with him. We don't know the personal circumstances and with that being said I will say it again, he will be definitely getting that divorce finalized. Just sayin...

What is wrong with these

What is wrong with these Hollywood bitches??? With all of their beauty, money, and success they STILL can't seem to find a man...well, not one of their own, that is. First Alicia now Sanaa, DAMN! Are you women really THAT deseperate that you would have to break up someone else's home???? Pathetic loser whores!!!!

I am sorry but I know plenty

I am sorry but I know plenty of people who are separated but not divorced. There are so many mixed emotions when you are married with a child and most people who I know who are separated generally use that time to live apart and lead different lives to see if it is the best choice to make. In that time, people get into other relationships to determine what is the next best step to take. Personally, it seems to make sense to me because a lot people use that time to make the right decision and not just say, "I'm sick of you, I want a divorce!' Some people decide to work it out with their spouse and some people decide to move on.

I love me some "Brown Sugar"

I love me some "Brown Sugar" and "Love and Basketball", but she can do better. Seperated does not equal divorced. You can't date married men. What goes around comes back around! She'll pay her karmatic debt, because he is someone's husband. Why do we believe he won't treat us the way he treated her? I won't call her a homewrecker, because clearly their home was already wrecked. However, she is accountable for her actions and not his. He needs to man up and do what's right. Either you want to be married or get a doggone divorce.

Yeah getting tired of this

Yeah getting tired of this HOMEWRECKER Label.Listen Every situation is diff some people get a diviorce some get seperated. But what i don't get is why all this harping on the women.Like I told my girl yesterday who ask me what i think about the alica/swiss I'm like listen alica was not the first women he cheated on her with it's been two yrs she writes a letter to say what Me & swiss are in a good place but yeah Alica Blah,Blah,I understand her feelings but women & men need to understand sometimes you might want the relationship to work but the other person has on foot out the door & just cause you are married does not mean you own anyone.Like i said before my mom & dad was sepereated for yrs he dated mom dated & all is fine in the world.lol

Sanaa used to be my girl but

Sanaa used to be my girl but this is not the first time she homewrecked someone's marriage. Remember when she filmed the movie with Denzel. They started to get a little to close after filming. Paulette had to let Sanaa know that shit is not about to go down. Then she broke up Terrell Owens and his girl. So Sanaa a word of advise what goes around comes around.

By the way, separated is

By the way, separated is different from divorce. DIVORCE means they are finished with one another, and both parties are now free agents to do as they please (if kids are involved, I would imagine they would have to work something out in terms of keeping in contact). SEPARATED means they are still MARRIED. SEPARATED was created as a means for people to take time away from the relationship, get their ish together, and resolve their problems eventually. IT DOES NOT MEAN JUMP IN ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP OR THAT YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE. If that is what he thought, then he probably is not marriage material and I would advise Sanaa to keep walking. People who are still in love with each other are not going to completely cut the chord. If this relationship Riftkin was in was just not what he wanted, I beleive he would have filed for divorce. HE DIDN'T. HE FILED FOR SEPARATION.

These women (Sanaa,

These women (Sanaa, Gabrielle, even Nia) I truly feel they are behaving like little girls. They may have looks but certainly not the brains in the relationship/common sense department. That is what does NOT add up to me. If you are as beautiful and famous as they are, I would imagine the prospects of finding someone special that is creme of the crop in whatever they do would be easy. They are more likely to rub shoulders with people on that level than I would, yet this seems to not be the case, and I don't even work in the film and theatre industry. I'm a grad student. They set a crappy example for the black girls that may look up to them. I mean, how classy can you be Nia, a single mother with almost no prospects of having a man in like...years...and all their male firends if you ask me, have their partners already. I have no respect for Alicia Keys, I am done with her. Gabrielle upsets the crap out of me, all of these men have kids already and left their wives while pregnant! and the ink hasn't even been applied to the papers yet, forget dried! Essence is the only one who has enough sense to go out their and get hers. Everyone at the wedding got a free membership to Match.com. I HOPE THESE HOES TAKE THE HINT AND STOP STEALING MEN FROM THEIR OWN BLACK SISTAHS! I mean, it seems like they feel if he's with another black woman it's free reign on those men, but if it's a reggie bush, they stay away? I think Rifkin's first wife is beautiful and I also think Tameka is beautiful. Leave the ladies alone. They look like the typical black women I see every day. Nothing wrong with them in the looks department at all. Okay. I'm done.

Dammie: Not being negative

Dammie: Not being negative at all. It’ just funny how so many people assume just cause someone is famous, she must be wealthy. WTF. Sanaa is not Angelina Jolie. She has work, I’m sure but that doesn’t make her wealthy. She probably lives a lot more comfortable than I do, yes. But wealthy? Oprah is wealthy, not Sanaa. Her dad’s bank account is his bank account, not hers. LOL! Are you serious?

Not surprised. Sanaa and I

Not surprised. Sanaa and I have mutual friends & back when she was with Omar Epps, her and Denzel were getting it in HARDBODY. Getting with married men isn't "something new" to her.

All I have to say is BIRDS of

All I have to say is BIRDS of a feather flock together. Her and Gabbie are so...alike, ummmm. Now all they need is Alica Keys to complete the real homewreckers of Hollywood. Then we can have that reality show that Gabbie was talking about or remade the O.P.P. video.LOL.

tagirl27: Um, Sanna’s

tagirl27: Um, Sanna’s father’s money probably much longer than this guys money. You don’t think she was raised wealthy? You don’t think her father affords her with whatever she can’t get for herself? He sent her to two of the best schools in the country in Yale and UC Berkley. It’s funny that you think she’s broke.She’s doing her own show and Broadway right now so I doubt she’s broke. If your father were wealthy wouldn’t he take care of you too? Any father would do that. Her father is a legend and still making huge projects. I’m sure she’s just fine. Some people swear black actresses outside Halle don’t have bread.I’m not even getting into the relationship part because more than half the time rumors aren’t true. What happened to the baby she supposedly had with Denzel? We don’t know these people personally, whether he’s unmarried or legal married on paper is on her and him and no one else. Why lose sleep over it. ReBeLR: You summed it up for me!!! People on blogs KILL me! You sitting on a here commenting on someone that makes more money than you’ll ever see & calling them broke?! Sanaa is FAR from broke lmao. People think just because you’re not in a movie every year, you’re struggling. STFU and get ready to get up & go to work at your 9-5 job. LMAO!!!! Thank you!! Some of these LAME people on here need to get their facts straight. Any chance they get they are going to be negative!!!! Sanaa is BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED, and WEALTHY! She can give a DAMN about what some average people have to say about her. Especially if it's negative :-)

A lot of black actresses who

A lot of black actresses who aren't working on film are writing, getting on things behind the scenes, executive producing things(Nia Long co-executive produced "Good Hair" with Chris Rock) doing t.v in regular roles or archs. They're hustling to get theirs. Don't always assume they're not doing well. It's hard out there but they're trying to make it happen.

A question for BLACK MEN: I

A question for BLACK MEN: I just went and LITERALLY burned my "Love and Basketball" DVD, from the comments, I see that they're lots of black women posting comments, but I'd like to ask BLACK MEN: "After reading this, can you say, honestly, that you can watch "Love and Basketball" and fell the same way? I gave her the "benefit of doubt" after "something new," her explanation in an Essence interview not long after that films release....explained alot. That said, to YOU black men, can you ever really support her again, especially in a role with her opposite a black man, say Idris Elba?

She’s a barely working actress whose last big film was 10 years ago, not calling her a golddigger but let’s not act like she’s Reese Witherspoon either lol. These high profile women jumping in relationships with these still married men is interesting. So do ppl not file for divorce anymore? If they’re so seperated and he’s moved on why hasn’t he filed? lol. He’s probably still banging out wifey. Women allow Men to get away with murder lol. THANK YOU.

Separated is not divorced and theoretically anything can still happen. It’s just too messy and not a situation I’d be comfortable which is why I literally just turned down a guy who is loaded, educated, well travelled, has 2 companies, is gorgeous - but separated. feel free to send him my way...i know plenty of people including my parents who NEVER divorced and my mom lived with another man for almost 20 years.... just sayin'

I've heard about Sanaa and her attitude. I just credit it to her growing up rich. Alot of rich kids have that sense of entitlement, and she totally has that. How happy can anyone be "dating" a legally married man? Another woman still has legal rights to him? and final say over him, if something happens to him? whose happy with that? It just screams desperation to me. sorry.

JudgeMeNever: why would she

JudgeMeNever: why would she be a golddigger? she has her own paper from her movies as well as from her dad the television producer… so people would be wise to do their before calling her that…as for the homewrecker part… for anyone… remember no one can wreck … IF your foundation is strong b/t you and your spouse and God then no one and I do mean no one can wreck that. not a woman or man…regardless of how hard they try… so like the word hater… homewrecker needs to be retired as well….IMO Exactly!!!! People should not use the term "homewrecker", by you don't what goes on in people's realationships.

Anywho...soon to be ex reminds me of the ex Mrs. Raymond a little bit...she's pretty though. As for Sanaa...do u momma! Who knows the intimate details of this pending divorce or their relationship for that matter. It's obviously over in the eyes of those that matter.
